edit I just realized this is SW
As far as picking a light, pay attention to efficiency as well. Quality is important especially considering the cost of those bulbs are $15-25 each, you don't want a cheap ballast thats going to flicker them or be overly variable. As far as quality goes you get what you pay for, which is why I either buy fixtures second hand or build my own. Another thing to consider is more wattage doesn't automatically mean more light. That one reflector really reduces your light efficiency. Also the lack of any cooling fans on the one odyssea I saw is scary. IDK of any other 4x54 watt light that doesn't have cooling fans. If it was lower powered 2 bulb unit it would not be an issue, but this puts out a lot of light and a lot of heat. BTW cooling vent does not equal cooling fan....
