Yes, that's the general consensus with Odyessa and Jebo brands. The quality and longevity is iffy. However I have a Jebo 130 watt that's going strong 1 year later from aquatraders.
I hear the canister filters are okay, some leak due to poor construction materials. But once they get going they are okay, but do not produce the rated flow rates.
For the t5 lights, I hear from reefcentral that they aren't very good b/c the burn out early and are highly inefficient compared to other fixtures. For a 55 gallon, a 2x55 ahsupply kit can get you a decent amount of light. Maybe add a 2x36 kit to get the extra boost of lights.
If you are on a cheap for filters, Rena Filstars are affordable. Rena XP3 will do the trick.
