mh reflector Review by purge
This is about as honest of a review as i can give. As stated, the metal corrosion protecting film could pose a problem if your not aware of it, but there is a sticker on the box indicating it is there. For the price this is a good buy and a very economical way to go with mhs...I have three(250w) of them hanging over my 125g long(6 ft) and it spreads out the light perfectly, with no dead spots. I did have one problem tho while inserting the first bulb, which I wound up breaking the bulb. The contacts inside that hold the bulbs are too tight, I spread them apart slightly by inserting a flat head screw driver then I put some gasket silicone lube on the ends of the bulbs and they slid in with no problem. Do this with the socket screws lose and then re-tighten them after the bulbs are in but not too tight, just snug to prevent the bulb from possibly breaking. If it wasn't for these reflectors, I would have had a hard time justifying the expense of switching from 150s to 250s (Posted on 10/21/2011)
Protective film not removed during construction Review by Edric
My reflector came with protective film still applied to all parts, including the ones that should have it removed before folding and riveting. It is OK to unscrew the bulb mount to strip the plastic film off, but the film sandwiched and out of reach melts away releasing fumes... (Posted on 10/13/2010)
Excellent Buy Review by Shamro
For the money, you can't buy anything that compares to this reflector. I have 4 250 watt mh lights above my 210 gallon tank. The reflectors do a great job in reflecting the light across the seven foot length of my tank. I would have no hesitation in recommending this reflector no matter what your lighting need are.
