Pros: great looks, great performance, really bright, little legs included
Cons: fan is a little noisy, not offered with daylight bulbs only (comes with half daylight and half actinic)

Best bang for your buck deal in lighting IMHO. I have a 20 inch and 30 inch and both give TONS of light. I love the lunar lights; really relaxing in seeing the night behavior of fish and inverts. The fan is a little niosy but no big deal. My only real gripe is that Orbits come with half of their bulbs actinic so you\'ll have to buy extra bulbs for panted tanks. Highly highly recommended!

Pros: Big Reflective Area
Cons: Price

These are great units that give exceptional lighting due the large reflective area. The fans due give a slight hum and the units are very big. I have the 48\" model with 4 x 96 watt bulbs, 4 lunar lights and have no complaints. I think the size of unit will help the bulbs stay cooler and last longer than some of the more compact fixtures available.

Pros: Very sturdy, large reflector, quiet fans, covers large area
Cons: NONE

This is an awesome light system. I am currently using this over a 30 gallon and it basically covers most of the tank because the light is very wide. The system is very sturdy and made from metal so it will not shrivel from the heat and water. I would highly recommend this system to anybody looking for a great light.....I know they can get a bit pricey but I only paid 70 dollars shipped for mine. Yup, a deal of a lifetime. Just keep checking ebay every day and see what new things come up because my light fixture was only listed for 10 minutes with a buy it now price of 50 bucks!!!!

Anyway, even if you don't find a good price you should definitely get this system. The lighting is great and fans are very quiet ---what more do you want?

Pros: Lots of light, Euro design, Good reflector,
Cons: Dim lunar lights, single fan,

Love my fixture. Lots of light and I really like the design.

I have the 48" model and it could have a little more spread around the edges, but nothing to complain about.

The lunar lights are a bit dim, Im seriously thinking of replacing them with something a bit brighter and putting them on a dimming timer.

Another thing is I think that this 48" fixture could use another fan as it only has 1.
