The light is great it works exactly as I expected it to. My only complaint was I got dinged with handling and taxes extra. I ordered 2 of these bulbs plus the fixtures they go in. They were listed at full retail price on the invoice even though they were on sale when I bought em and had to pay 111.00 extra. I really, really dislike private shipping companies like FedEx over USPS. Sure I likely should have paid the taxes, but not those handling fees that make up half of the bill.
I purchased a solar system 275, the controller, and, three weeks ago, a UVB light. I have yet to use the UVB light, but the quality of the harvest on my last grow was superior; all thanks to an amazing light using only 200 watts of power. The bud quality was significantly better than under 400 watts of MH followed by HPS. I am looking forward to incorporating more extensive programming incorporating UVB light on my next grow. Thanks California Lightworks for great products, and personalized customer service.
The UVB light was a solid purchase. I’ve only used it for 30 minutes at a time once a day but honestly, everything appears to be WAY frostier than ever before. Totally happy with my purchase!
good updates throughout the ordering process, lights works as designed, no issues so far. will be adding a second light next year
Lights have made a big difference, added them to my greenhouse and my plants love the extra light.
All I have to say is wow, the programmable spectrums are going to be a blast to play with. I have not completed my grow yet but everything is right on track.
Good light but came with no hangers.
I have the 500 ,and the 250 both great lights very impressed
I ordered the SX 250, high quality delivery service to Canada, recieved emails throughout on processing, been in my tent for 2 months, big healthy happy plants, superb build quality and packaging. 10/10
I am not a real big person so I found I had to hold product in one hand and push on button with the other. Took awhile to get adjusted and now easier to use. Thanks
I use my 275 as an extension of my 550. Does great! I can see no difference except for the white light isn't there. It helped me extend my growing area by a couple of feet. Just what I was after! I'm a big fan of California Lightworks !! The 275 was worth the money for me!
My plants seem very happy with the light and are growing quite well.
I wanted to augment my crop with UVB -- spectrum that I was not getting from my existing LED light banks. The CA Light Works Solar System UVB product seemed an excellent option given its price, apparent good build quality and the company's reputation. The first light (packed like it contained something extremely delicate like eggs and not a fluorescent fixture,) appeared in perfect condition. I set it up, plugged it in using a timer as recommended, and it worked -- twice -- I contacted David in Tech Support/Customer Service and he dispatched a replacement as soon as we determined that there were no loose bulbs, faulty sockets or other 'user error' issues to blame. Some sellers wait for a broken product to be returned, but CA Light Works sent out the replacement immediately; I dropped off the 1st light with FedEx the next day. The second light (also packed amazingly well,) arrived quickly and has been giving fault-free service since it was installed. Too soon to assess how adding UVB will benefit my plants--no burning so far; (do follow the recommendation to gradually increase exposure; keep lights at recommended distance from top of canopy and remember only to use as plants are completing their bloom phase -- basically, 'use as directed' and remember that if 1 hour is good, 2 hours probably won't be better and will likely cause burns; a little goes a long way with UVB -- Ask me how things turn out in a month; I have one tent with the UVB light and another tent without. Very pleased with the high quality product, fast service and courtesy -- I have long felt that the best way to judge a company (beyond whether they offer good products at a fair price,) is to see how things are made right when they go wrong, and CA Light Works came through with a speedy, courteous and completely fair resolution--I would not hesitate to consider them again for future purchases--Better customer service than just about anyone I have dealt with in the agricultural lighting community.
So far these seems to be very good
This light works exactly as I expected and is very easy to use. The only possible improvement, for those who have short thumbs, may be to integrate the power button up into the handle for a little easier access for the thumb. I highly recommend this light.
