Cheapest 600w hps?
    #3287819 - 10/28/04 02:59 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

can anyone recommend a site (in the US) that sells 600w hps ballasts + bulbs for < $180 or a site that at least has 600w hps bulbs for less than $75-80? this seems to be the bastard child size, bulbs averaging 2x the price of 1000w hps. ballasts also disproportionately expensive. =(

That's because 600W is the "sweet spot". 600W lights are far more efficient than 1000W. You get close to the same lumens with a 600W as with a 1000W, but power consumption and heat output is much much lower. That is why the prices of the two are so close to each other.

There is a place called 1000 bulbs, I think it's 1000bulbs.com but I'm not sure. You can buy the ballast, bulb and a housing for the ballast plust a reflector with cord for about what you are wanting to spend. It just takes a short time to put them together.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)
