SBHL175 sunburst. i've searched the net but i can't find any info on it. its a 175 watt metal halide. i'm interested in it only if it can be switched with an HPS bulb and also if it can be upgraded to a higher wattage. if any of you have a Sunburst model #SBHL175 i'd love to know the answers i'm looking for. thanks.

also, it is made by "Hydrofarm Gardening Products" or something.

you mean this....... http://www.altgarden.com/site/lightsystems/hydrofarm/sunburst.html

and no, it's not a switchable ballast, as in the bulb type, but you can get them in HPS, and in a 250 watt.

i find 175 watt bulbs an odd size and for the money might as well get a 250.

you cant easly switch a MH into a HPS.. But you can turn a HPS into a MH fairly easly and cheaply. YOu just need to switch off the ignitor.. Check overgrow for good info

thanks everyone...well, i'm offered a 175Watt MH for $50. either that or i can buy a brand new HPS 250Watt for about $215 including shipping. what would you all do? i've read alot about both lights and HPS seems to always win...MH is hotter per watt and covers less area...etc. but then again, $50 is pretty cheap.
