Personally the Nova Extreme is cheaper and more wattage. Although, I do like the legs on your link.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I may be confused...but to be expected right.

In terms of wattage...the Nova Extreme is 4x39 or 156 watts. The Orbit I was looking at is 2x96 or 192 watts? But...the Nova Extreme is a T5 HO versus the Orbit's PC. In terms on Kelvin it looks like the Nova (2) 10,000K while the Orbit has (1) 6,700 and (1) 10,000K.

So in Kelvin terms...the Nova seems to be the brighter. Plus I have just started reading how much nicer and brighter the HO lights are. So I may be switching over to the Nova Extreme T5HO.
