reefraff, I glad we can talk instead of argue sometimes I feel I come as being a ****.SO sorry if so.

Bulb to bulb comparison the vho are brighter, but watt for watt they are not.Same thing with pc lighting.

example: 1 48" 40w NO doesn;t not compare to a 48" 110w VHo

but 3x 48" 40w does equal 1 48" 110w vho they are both the same type of lighting.Just diff packages 120w of NO =120w of vho it just takes up alot more space.I think everyone just likes pc cause they look better and have been fooled into thinking they are "brighter".

Side note: Must be nice to have a extra laying around.Lucky fool

I must be a fool then, because when I switched from NO to PC it was at least twice as bright watt for watt.. The intensity is also greater.. The proof is in the livestock. The performance of PC out weighs NO by a long shot... My wife even noticed a big difference and she doesn't know NO from an ant. So, believe what you want, I will stick with PC. I have a couple 48" 03's if you want them...Very dim compared to PC..

I sure would like them Maybe we can work something out.I'll drop you a pm

But on the pc/no note I have stated facts so my part is done.I figure if anyone cares enought o prove me wrong they will come up with facts instead of the fact that they see a diff ,all to common to see what you want to see ya know(not yuou I mean everyone,shallow hal,lol)

I might do somemore reading as well, just to saticfy myself on it.
