To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My lights arrived in just a couple days, no breakage. Instead of the expected 20 lights, there were 21. A sweet bonus. Have gone through a lot of T5 grow lights, and these appear as bright as any I have purchased. And, since they were priced nice and low (I am trying to avoid the word cheap), I am patting myself on the back for a very smart purchase. This review was neither requested, to my knowledge, nor compensated in any form or fashion. (Amazon hosts way too many fake reviews.) DRMK
I feel obligated to leave a review, knowing that usually people only leave a review when problems are encountered. I ordered a big quantity of these bulbs and they all arrived well-packed and perfectly working!
And they're brighter than my previous bulbs. Great price and quality 5 stars plus!
The light from these lights is nice. My plants like them very much and the bulbs don't generate a lot of heat. They were packed with lots of bubblewrap. I was very pleased. But I've bought these several times and I think I'm noticing that they don't last as long as the previous brands I was buying. It might be my imagination but I seem to be going through the lights a lot faster than I expect. I'm going to buy two brands and compare them. If I remember I'll provide an update.
I was wondering how many broken bulbs I would get. I was shocked that nothing was harmed. The box was in a cushioned box, with the bulb in boxed in 4 packs that were also separated by individual bulb sleeves. The packaging was great. The bulbs are fine. The color was the spectrum I was expecting for seed starting\growth phase. I have only had them for a couple months, but no pre-mature burn outs so far. The brightness seems on par with other brands of this watt\spectrum.
Lights are great unfortunately I don't know how to order lights for florescent fixtures. These will not fit regular light fixtures. Now I have to buy a grow light. The bulbs shipped great! That was my big worry! They packed them properly and no broken bulbs. I'm happy.
Bulbs were packaged well so we had no defective and I have to say, they are a good clean daylight white with just the perfect hint of blue which isn't noticible unless you have it next to a bulb that's actually less true white. These bulbs don't seem to negatively affect colors and plants love them. Just a note, give them a minute to warm up before judging output... Big difference.
These fit in my 4 bulb aquarium fixture and the plants seem to be responding well to them. First shipment arrived damaged and was immediately returned for a full refund and the second delivery came in unscathed. They have been running 12 hours a day for about 2 months so far.
