My Current USA Orbit with Dual Daylight bulbs (6,700K/10,000K) 2x40 Watt Bulbs with Moonlight is the most luxurious thing that I have purchased for myself in this hobby. I purchased mine for a great deal (around $100-120) from Big Al's online. When I purchased this I had arranged to swap out and return for exchange the dual daylight actinic bulb that came with it. They were willing to do this AFTER I received the package. They WOULD NOT open the package before shipping.
For me, this fixture setup KICKS ASS!! (excuse my langugae for those that offend easily).
When I look at the Coralife light fixtures, I read the details on what comes with it and it just seems like I got a GREAT deal. I mean the Coralife looks nice and shiny, but I LOVE EVERYTHING that came with mine.
I still can't get over watching the moonlight late at night. Pure luxury to me.
There is no way I would have spent the extra $$ to get that separately. I love mine.
fishtastico, the vendor cannot fix what they do not know about. Smart vendors know that for every customer that they satisfy, that customer will tell others. That also applies to customers that were originally dissatisfied. If the vendor go out of the way to fix even difficult situations, that customer may go out of their way to tell even more people. (If you ever want to hear about a great auto insurance company that also does homeowners that went above and beyond so that the closing of my house would go through on time (AMICA), I will tell you all about it.)
fishtastico, I do hope everything works out well for you.
I hope yours ends up making you as happy as mine does me.
