If you are smart and shop around for gardening equipment, every now and then you will stumble upon a product that exceeds your expectations by leaps and bounds. While shopping on ebay recently we came across this air-cooled reflector that was only $50 so we decided to buy one and see if it’s quality was comparable to some of the more popular brand name reflectors.
Some reflectors on ebay are pretty junky, like coming with only a 6′ power cord??? so we didn’t expect too much. Not only was our purchase a bargain at $50 but it’s quality construction was surprising! The hinged glass panel felt tight and it’s clasps locked it in place with authority. It is sized to work perfectly in a 4′ x 8′ grow tent if you utilize a Light Rail 3.5 as we did for our tests. The reflector is light weight and easy for one person to install. The reflector accommodates 6″ ducting and accepted the flexible ducting connections easily, which is another issue with some cheap reflectors.
Compared to other comparable units costing 3 times as much, we highly recommend this air-cooled reflector, you will not be disappointed!
