Review Date: Fri May 27, 2011 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $130.00 | Rating: 9 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Very bright, On/Off switch on cord, stays cool, sleek design
Cons: Bulb Change is a little cumbersome, cord at end of fixture isn't ideal for some canopy users

Very reasonably priced light for the quality you get. Very bright and illuminating on my tank. While it doesn't have a fan, it does have a vented design that seems to work very well at keeping the fixture from becoming hot.

You can buy this design as 2 or 4 bulbs. Keep in mind that the standard shipment style is one daylight and one blue, so if you are wanting double daylight you will need to purchase a second daylight bulb.

About the Cons:
Because it is a completely sealed fixture, to replace the bulbs you have to unscrew the entire end cap and pull the bulbs out of the housing to replace. Not hard, but not your average "screw in a lightbulb" type change.

The cord for the fixture is at the end of the light, not the back, so this can cause issues with someone that uses a tight fitting canopy.
