Love my Ray II


I got my Ray II today! All I can say is WOW! It's amazing that such a tiny light can produce more light over my 72 than the 4 T8s I had over it!

Thanks to everyone, including Lowe, who answered all my stupid questions. I LOVE this light!

I just got one myself for my 40B(partly because of reading responses to your post) It's still too soon to tell how the plants will like it, but I'm hopeful. I have a potting soil base capped with eco-complete.

Just starting to plant it this week.

I just posted it over there! Here is the pic. This light is amazing! If it grows plants as good as it looks, then it's the best buy ever!

Lowe, I am not sure if this is proper usage, but I used my 48" to light the house during hurricane sandy. 39w, charged ups, whole living room lit up for more then 2 hours.

Mine is here, damn thing came busted, only 1/2 of the lights worked, but nothing a screw driver and a soldering iron can't fix, it's a bright fixture, lets see how it does, I'll put a par meter to it in the morning.

Sure they do have a 180 day warrantee, but it's a hassle to send the stuff back and wait for a new one. It's fixed And good to go. A wire came lose and now is back in place..

Was your packaging busted? When I got mine(from Amazon) The big box was fine, but the box that the actual fixture came in had come apart and the light was just floating free in the larger shipping box, thankfully everything worked fine though.
