Is this a steal?

I found some lights online and plan to use them on my 55 gallon reef tank im going to set up next week. Is it a good deal? its on sale for $120.00 free shipping

Excellent for marine, reef, and cichlid aquariums. Includes built-in timer for automatic operations.
Fixture comes with 2x 10000K and 2x Actinic Blue lamps.

Yes it will be good enough for softies and lps however it is an off brand and quality, reliability, and durability are probably shaky at best. Id do some research on it before buying.

check ebay for used lights. I got a 6bulb t5HO brand name fixture for half price just because it was a year old. I put new bulbs in it and it works perfectly.
