    Hi everyone, this is my first post here. Which system is best from this website, insidesun.com

    Also, what would be the optimal room dimensions for a room using that light.

    Thanks a bunch,

    if money ain't a issue i would have this 400 Watt HPS/ Metal Halide Lumatek Digital Ballast w/ Socket.. prefer a 600 but 400 is OK..depends on what reflector you use as well..but that light would cover 1 meter square floor space..plus a didgi will burn both hps and MH..

    I would not recommend inside sun. Seriously man..

    If you are looking for a budget system go with htg or discount hydro

    Hello everyone just wondering if anyone has heard of or used VIRTUAL SUN they have a light kit thats about 290 u.s. not sure what the ballast is but i'm leaning towards this because of the price. other systems hood light ballast bulbs and inline fan are around 390 u.s. trying to get a flowering room set up. Need to know. I'm in research mode and learning all i can. (damn rookies) :stoned:

    1000bulbs.com has good deals, i just ordered some 400w MH bulbs and they were only $9 a piece! great bulbs too. they also have ballast kits that u just have to assemble, i havent done one personally but it looks pretty simple.

    Ive been using HTG for around a year without any problems. Cant really beat their prices.

    Cool thanks. I went to htg they have pretty good prices. Didnt really find much for kits on 1000bulbs.com but if I need a bulb I know where to go now. So thanks everyone. cheapest I found on htg was a kit with an inline fan added plus shipping around 301.51 not bad but virtualsun is still the cheapest I just hope they are good. Might just go with this htg website tho.:Rasta:
