Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pofaith Easy install
Very pleased with this purchase. I recieved my light and just had to open the box and hang it, plug it in and turn it on. Great light output for my orchids. I like having the option to run the 2 outer bulbs or the 2 inner bulds independently, though I haven't needed to use it yet. Sturdy and well built and a good price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grayowl Just perfect for what I was looking for. Did'nt have to modify or do a lot of work.
Had toggle switches ready to modify the light fixture. But to my surprise this product is made to what I wanted to do. Two inside lamps for lower lumens and the two outside ones for more. And to adapt to my old light stand where I had a regular fluorescent fixture it was easy. For maximum height, I just unscrewed one of the chrome wire hanger end and straddled the 2”X3” wooden frame. Both features were not in the product description. Because of the different stages of growth, I will just adjust the plants to the light and not the light to the plant I’m very happy and so are my plants (I guess).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timmy It's worth it
Purchased this item. Received in good condition. Nothing was damaged. Installed fixture via chains. Used a automatic timer at the power outlet... Its been running 12hrs on 12hrs off for a few weeks without any heat issues or other problems. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple seedling grow light fixture

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spokanite Worked for about a year and then two of the bulb connectors broke...pricey to replace after 1 year warranty.
I own two of these units and I do like this product, however, when the connectors for the light bulbs break, it is not an easy fix, nor cheap. It lasted just over a year without breaking (and I only use it in the spring time for about 3 months). Viagrow offered after warranty repair, which with shipping and handling prices and, labor and parts would come out to be way more than purchasing a regular shop light with bulbs......Not sure if I would recommend this product to a friend. I wouldn't purchase it again---regular shop light or two will do the same job for a cheaper price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DTEguy Great Light
Bought it for my indoor orchids, pretty slim and very bright. I measured the brightness and it is as follows (approximate):
1 feet: 2700 fc
2 feet: 1200 fc
3 feet: 700 fc
Good light and pretty focused reflectors.

Nice looking BUT ballast went out 2 days after having it !! Too expensive for it to stop working !! Very disappointing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shells Turbo charged lighting!
I start tomato and pepper plants indoors each year. This new lighting (I was using 4 T40 bulbs for the same space) has about doubled my growth rate!. I'll plant them about a month later next year. However, this fixture does emit a lot of heat, so I'm going to need to sort out some ventilation. I used to leave a heat mat on day and night to control temperature, but it's now too hot during the day to just leave the mat plugged in all the time. This is the best value fixture for a 4-bulb T5

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homesteader Top quality plant starter
This is made to last plant starter grow light equipment. 4 lights, dual on/off, ballast. Equipment came with cords to easily raise and lower light. Started Mexican cucumbers from seeds without need for cooling fan or elaborate set up. The light will last for years. One of the best investments as vegetable starters from seeds in spring.
