Review Date: Mon December 29, 2008 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: None indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Positive aspects of the product (pros): Dirt cheap, effective, easy to obtain
Cons: 6500k is better if you can find it

 
Exceeded my expectations and more. Excellent way to turn a low light ten gal into a thickly planted sight to behold.

6500K are available but are harder to find, really the only reason i have this product an 8.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Highest Kelvin I could find
Cons: 6500K would be better

 
I have three of these over my 20 gallon tank (one of the bulbs is a 20 watt model). My plants are literally growing out of the water. 5500K is great for growing plants. I found some 6500K at Target the other day. When these burn out I'll give those a try. But so far no complaints.
