http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...roduct=ES53504 @ $430.
Or for $360 more, you can get the 250w Metal halide. The one above is only a 150w MH w/2x65 PCs.

I don't have anything to compare to, but I got this light in the 6' version and am happy with it - after 3 months.

How about this:

mine is 48x7. I am not sure on the width of the 36". Not too sure if the output would be good for reef.
