This review is from: LUMATEK LK400 400W HPS/MH Grow Light Hydroponic Digital E-Ballast - 120/240v
Pros: I have an original, first gen 400w Lumatek digital ballast and it still works perfectly.
Resettable fuse breakers.
Dimmable 4-positon knob makes the bulb a little brighter.
Can be used for 250 watt bulb as well which is a cool feature for seedling and young plants.
Cons: Finding the lamp cord with the correct proprietary Lumatek female socket is a royal pain. Ended up getting another brand lamp cord and buying an adapter.
One star off for the lamp cord problem.
Other Thoughts: I don't get why Lumatek doesn't include a lamp cord and why it's so hard to find one.
You may find a cheaper, no-name ballast but in my experience they fail at some point and that can be a hassle.
Pros: -Rich, accurate colors with great black level.
-VERY bright, turned in down to 60 and that's the only adjustment I needed to make.
-Lots of bang for the buck.
-Noiseless, completely silent external power supply... easy and cheap to replace should it fail.
-Thin and light.
Cons: Glossy... really glossy but at least no one is going to be able to sneak up from from behind and attack you.
Other Thoughts: My old 20" looks small now, yes size does matter.
I got the 1yr extended warranty for peace of mind... it's cheap so why not.
Pros: Keys have a nice tactile feel and spring to them. Multimedia functions are a bonus, I find it convenient to have mute, pause and volume controls accessible to from the the keyboard.
Cons: At this price point and free shipping absolutely none.
Other Thoughts: Over the years there are some brand names that I can buy from with confidence, knowing I will get good value for the money... Rosewill is one of those names.READ FULL REVIEW
