For the price good buy...IMO, but I wouldn't expect it to last as long as most leds get credit for. Because the specs states only 17,000hrs where most leds are 50,000hrs+

Alright. I guess when it fails I'll buy a double bright. I just hope my plants will do okay.

Looks to be the exact same light I mentioned above that's cheaper. Looks like Marineland just stamped their name on it in order to charge more.

Single brights are going to give less light than a single T8. They really aren't the greatest choice for plants unless you're wanting loooooooow light.
