I have the Jebo 2x65w on my fuge and have had no problems with it
They are a cheaper made fixture but for that price it is worth it IMO

I have done some searching on this and have only found a few unhappy customers. So for me it is worth a try.
You will find unhappy customers with any product on the market.

The light is made very well and I am happy with it so far. Had a small issue the first full day of use, it shut itself off after about 12 hours on. It was hot....
It worked the next day no problems after that..... I now have the door on the stand open to get some air flow under the stand. Looking for a small fan now..
Worth the $$$$ So far...... Hope I can get a year out of it and Ill be happy

Did you guys see that they have a 6 month extended warranty available?
And even if you buy the light with the warranty it is dirt cheap!
I might try one of it, just for fun.

Does enyone have power consumption data from comparable lights?
I mean did enyone test the lights (Ampere)?

If i buy the lights I will post it here.

Only problem i see with them is the actincs are not real actinics just purple painted tunes. THey do not have seperate power switchs for actinics and daylight bulbs. They relly offer no customer service or support. Other than that they would be fine.

The Actinic thing really bothers me, since they claim the bulbs are Actinics. True Actinic bulbs and just shining blue light into a tank yields completely different results... It is misleading to customer and can land people with very poor results

Also, having the fixture turn itself on the first day, and you saying "Hope I can get a year out of it" are not a convincing indications that it will last a while. If my Current USA fixutre only lasted a year I would be ticked

The light has been flawless sense the first day. Me saying hope I can get a year out of it was because I ONLY got a year out of a Corallife 65 watt PC which is a name brand unit. Im not trying to convince anyone here just sharing info. Also the light on the Odyssea appears to have the same look as the corallife bulbs. Not sue what the Jebo lights have for bulbs. I am pleased with the light so far.
Grimlock is this from personal experience that you critique the light or what you read on the net? I have read more good then bad reviews on this light..

I have not read anyone yet to say that the Jebo fixtures have true Actinic bulbs, I have an issue with that.
