Cheap 400W MH for $135 shipped?

Anyone know anything about these fixtures?

He's got a lot of good feedback, but man that seems too cheap to be good.

The quest for the lighting upgrade continues.

As long as you want a 20K bulb it's probably a good deal. I see it says "like new", which I assume means the ballast, but 1 of my mh ballasts is over 15 yrs old and fires up like a champ. So with the 2 yr warranty I think your OK.

parts list to buy seperately:
20K 400w bulb aprox $60
400w MH ballast aprox $35
new reflector aprox $25

Going by that short incomplete list, yours seems like a good deal.

I'm not sure that I want those, I just saw them and thought I would point them out. I'm actually thinking about a nicer looking fixture since itis a display tank.
