Ouch... That's a knockoff of the Oddysea brand and it's even cheaper on aquatraders.com

I emailed the odyssea company and asked them about the problems I have read about they said there has been 4 upgrades since and now they haven't had any complaints since and offer a 1 year warranty

Yep I kno thats why I love all their products. They are at least half off of what those name brand companies sell and work just as good.

Yeah, theirs comes w/ a useless Actinic bulb with $6 difference in price. I've had no problems out of mine, great product imo.

So I have found these, it seems like overkill but for the price I am having a hard time passing this up. Thoughts?
