Lighting upgrade help!

I'm looking to upgrade my lighting for my bio cube 29 gal. Does anyone have any opinions on Odyssea? I've been reading mixed reviews.

Anyway here is the link to what I'm thinking about purchasing.

personally I won't use MH on BC29 . That is just me. I just don't like the extra heat added to the small tank. Well I have personal nightmare about MH in general so lol I am a bit bias for this.

Well, let's say got a tank crush due to mh heat related reason. I lost 20k worth of live stock in less than 12 hours. It was partially my fault for not getting chiller. But I had fan on my tank and dumping buckets of ice cUbe in and still not able to keep the temp down
