Product Review: Nova Extreme t5 HO 4x39 watt 36"
Nova Extreme t5 HO 4x39 watt 36"
Link to product description
Great light fixture. I swapped out the two actinic bulbs for two 6700k bulbs (i'm using it on a 46 bowfront planted). Single tube reflectors. Fan cooled. Two switches.
Maybe it is because i got this through current-USA's refurb. program, but the fan is really noisy. I contacted them and they shipped me out a new fan promptly, but it still was noisy.
Star rating (1-5 with 5 being the best)
4, because of the noisy fan
How long have you used the product?
For a little more than three months.
Build quality and value for your money.
Excellent build quality. Fan could be better. An expensive light, but shop around. On ebay, they sell the refurbished lights, and they are in excellent shape. My refurbished one has no scratches or dents, and was only about 100 dollars, instead of the new price for $200+
I wish that the fan was quiter. However, the customer service is impeccable, and the light works great. I wish lunar lights were included on all of their fixtures.46 Gallon Bowfront ~ 2xEheim 2215's ~ 300 Watt Fluval E-Series Heater ~ 36" Marineland Plant LED ~ 9watt TurboTwist UV
