I do. I bought a 48 inch 4 bulb t5ho like a month or two ago. I have 2 gbta and a frag of gsp in my tank. The nems are looking better than when iciest got them. The lights overall are pretty good. Only thing that concerns me is the heat given off.

The fixtures are pretty much junk. You get what you pay for, and I've had 2 ballasts bust on me within 2 months of purchase.

I was asking about the lights because I wanted to see if you guys saw any growth in your corals with these lights, are they good for corals or not?

The thing with these lights as far as I know (other then quality of materials used) is they do not have high grade individual reflectors so you lose a lot of usable light.
