Experience with this lighting fixture?


Hey everyone,

I'm looking at buying a new 36" t5 lighting fixture for my tank. After browsing around, this offer seems to be significantly cheaper than the others:

[Ebay Link Removed]

I'm wondering if anyone has experience, positive or negative, with this equipment. As long as its not a piece of junk it seems like a great deal.

Thanks for the input!

Ebay links are not allowed, due to abuse/self-promotion. You may mention the title of the listing for others to google.

Generally, cheaper fixtures have cheaper components. Cheap ballast, cheap endcaps, and subpar reflectors. Sometimes you get lucky and get a real good deal.
