    Would you purchase the product again? Yes, it's the only brand bulb I run

    Would you recommend the product? Yes it is the only brand bulb I recommend. Some bulbs are cheaper, but I strongly feel this bulb pays for itself the first use many times over

    My personal opinion on this bulb it is the gold standard for all bulbs. I've used this brand exclusively for years without issues with the exception of the early days of 'E' and "Digital' Ballasts...there was some issues which were worked out years ago by Hortilux

    Damn Nippie ya beat me here by 2 minutes.:321fu::kidding:

    But I have to agree totally!!! The Hortilux 400 and 600 are all I've ever used for 8 years as well. I've looked at the others because of the price but always walk to the register with Hortilux in hand. And now seeing some of the online prices can't imagine using anything else.

    I've never purchased bulbs online and was wondering if anyone has had any damage problems due to shipping.
