Since I am new to saltwater, this light looked like a good upgrade. I have not been disappointed. The light is very well made. Yes, there are alot of power cords, but I knew that before I purchased it. I don't find the fan as noisy as others have said. My one complaint would be is that the LED light is mounted in the center of the fixture which just happens to place it right above the center bracket of the tank. Other than that a nice light for a very good price.

Works Great!

Works great around the clock. No complaints here. This is my second satellite my other one was smaller and I bought it on a different website where I over paid. Thank you!

Affordable and bright!

Wow, great light output and plenty of cords! As noted in other reviews the fan is loud and I'll be looking for a quieter replacement soon. This affordable light replaces a coralife quad 96w unit and I could'nt be happier with this purchase.

Bright but noisy lights

The light fixture is providing all the light I need for a 65 gal freshwater tank. The moon glow light is nice. The fan is very loud, I will mode it with a temperature speed control or swap it out for a quieter fan.

Great!!!

Great product. Needs more timers than I thought but you have the option to break out the lighting to make it more intense during the peak day time and taper off to an LED at night. Pretty nice design!

It works

I am using it for my sump, great product for the price, only drawback, you have several plugs (one for each light). Considering what you get for the price, I can deal with that. Low profile and nice design.

2x65 watt satellite

Fan is loud, lights arent placed in middle of unit(off to one side). Thing has 4 plugs running from it. they couldnt make the fan and lunar light off the same plug? Couldnt beat the price. If anything I will disassemble it and retrofit into a canopy. average.

Quality and Value

Have had this light installed for about a week now on my FO Marine 29gal High tank and am impressed. Good wattage for a 30" casing giving me 3.8 watts/gal which would be enough for most coals. Considering a comparable Metal Halide light would run about 2.5x the price, you really can’t beat the value. Plus I consider Current USA to be one of the best name brands in tank lighting! Would recommend this light to anyone starting out with hardy corals and doesn’t have deep pockets for Metal Halide.
