Review Date: Mon December 27, 2010 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $79.00 | Rating: 8 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Inexpensive, bright
Cons: bulbs do not have individual reflectors

The Odyssea fixtures often get a bad rap from many hobbyists, however most of them have never actually owned one. Those who have never owned one love to bad mouth them. While these fixtures are not the highest quality fixtures on the market, they certainly are not bad. They strongly resemble Coralife fixtures in their construction. If you switch the bulbs out for a higher quality bulb you will get even better light out of them. I ran 2 of these fixtures over my 46gal SPS reef right up until the tank sprung a leak. I would not hesitate to purchase another Odyssea fixture. They seem to have overcome some of their earlier issues and have become a good fixture. For the price you pay for them, they are certainly worth a shot.
