It's not great and it's not cheap (I believe it's roughly $75 or so). It doesn't have reflectors or mounting legs. You will be better off with a Nova Extreme which you can typically get for around $100, just search for it.

Incidentally, I did purchase two 4100K T5HO 54W bulbs from Home Depot after my original lights got too dim, and my plants don't have any problems with it. It also seems really bright (brighter than a brand new Nova Extreme on another tank of mine). The 4100k bulbs do have more of a yellowish cast but at $10/each and being readily available I decided to experiment, and I am not unhappy. //end hijack
