Anyone Have Any Experiance With 1000Bulbs?


Recommended Posts

i ran across this company while looking for the best price i could find on two things..

 

https://www.1000bulbs.com/category/grow-lights/?tid=nav

 

1st - t5 HO bulbs for veg

2nd - 1000 watt magnetic ballast with parabolic hood.

 

i am shopping for best price above all... but i already use parabolic hoods and i like the spread of light they produce.  i had a digital 600 ballast burn out.. after only 3 years.. and then my reserve 400w digital burned out a week later.. so no more digital for me.. both my magnetic 1k's are still running smooth after nearly 3 years.. well 2 and a half anyways....

 

so now both stand by lights blew out and i need a replacement one... so i went shopping.. i am beyond broke right now so budget has become my primary concern...

 

after what seemed like many hours of research i found this site to have pretty good prices and haven't been able to find anything comparable as of yet..

 

tonight.. before i order anything i thought i would put it out there and see if the community has any ideas on this..

 

the T5 bulbs are $3 each for veg but i have to buy a box of 25 https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/94228/FHO-54T5865F-25PK.html?tid=car

 

the 1k ballast is https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/88225/PX-UGBA1000ECO.html?tid=car

$94.20

 

and the parabolic hood is only $46.36 https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/88232/PX-UGRPR.html?tid=car

 

i already have a bulb so i am good to go there... although i have seen combination units with both bulbs included.. if i could find one somewhere close to the $150 i found the ballast and reflector for then i would consider it.

1000 bulbs is a good source for cheap bulbs

Buddy of mine turns over a elbow a week to dispensaries in Calorado

Only buys MH 1k in bulk and gets outstanding results 

Here is a link to a chick in Grand Ledge that I have made a couple purchases from cheap

Hope this helps

thank you king.

 

another lead for me to be able to follow up on.

 

for the record as it is.. or as it were.. :)

 

what's the advantage i might expect having them meet the price?  could i, or should i mention your name or something to get some kind of bonus or props for you?

 

i definitely appreciate the information.

Those look like good prices... standard for the quality anyhow.

 

1000bulbs.com is perfectly fine and dandy. Used em a few times.  Caught a clearance sale on 1000WHPS Hortilux bulbs from them for $52 before. :-)  Spent my paycheck on em. :-)

 

Noticing your concern on your other ballasts burning out in short time, these low quality ballasts usually only have a 2 year warranty with them. They may say 5 sometimes,... but it is a partial 5 year, actual 2 year. You pay shipping etc.

 

 The good thing is... at $95 for a 1k,... I consider it disposable in that price range. 3 years at that price is cheap cheap cheap...

I would recommend HTG too. Great service, and as KD said, they will match any price. 

Yea me too! plus they give you a sticker and dube liter with a bottle opener on it with every order lol, , If I didnt get it on ebay I got it from htg, I have several magazines here of there equip, I found them to be the best price with no names mentioned, but if they give you a break mentioning a good customers name, I dont think you can go wrong, I wish they had stores closer to us than lansing, any how anything they ship comes from there main office out of state, but it gets here real quick,

 

Best of luck!

 

Peace

Agreed

But, she accepts paypal but prefers cash

Plenty of goodies on sale like a flea market

I leave no paper trail or shipping info 

Pay cash

Good luck

 

Besides we are legal ;)) just wear a mask
