Not Bad, but Frustrating

The fixture's aluminum housing is of good quality. It gets fairly hot due to the fact that there is no cooling fan and it does increase the temperature in the tank. It may just be me, but I have still not been able to program the timers correctly after two or three attempts even with the video and instructions. It' is a bit complicated and very frustrating. If I hadn't thrown out the shipping box I would very likely send it back.

Easy / Relaxing

I absolutely love my Aquatic Life PowerCompact. Easy to set up and looks fantastic on my African Cichlid 100 gallon / 4 foot tank setup.

Very nice system

I was amazed at the quality of this light very well build. Pack very well and have yet to have any issues at all with this light but it is still very new i will try to update this every review every couple months on how well it is performing, but as of right now it a 5 out of 5 for this light system. Bottom line i all ways believed you pay for what ya get.The replacement bulbs run around 25 dollars and are in square pin design. my corrals are growing very well and it does add a very nice light to the tank.Hope my review helps!!!

Cheap Ballast

I purchased a 24 inch 4 lamp unit 1 yr ago. Just one month after the warranty was up both Ballast burnt out. I called Aquaticlife and asked if they could help...Sure for $90 bucks. This is a very expensive unit that burnt out in just one year. Good luck if you get one. Wayne

Some problems

Installation DVD was cracked and unusable (went online to download instructions). Two screws for the brackets (stands) were not usable. Unable to find replacements. Using duct tape to hold stands in place. Unable to set clock or re program the lights. However using the reset button at midnight got the time right. Using the default program for the lights. In spite of the above--beautiful lighting system makes the tank look outstanding.

last light i ever have to buy!

Having the programmable timer for all three light settings has been very convenient. No more messing with three different plugins and timers. The fans move a lot of air and keep the unit well cooled. The light looks great on the tank and has made my soft corals thrive. I wish I could adjust the height of the legs up when I have to get my arms in the tank.

Great Product!

These lights are amazing. Great intensity. The system works well, and is extremely easy to use. I have a 120 GAL reef tank, and both the coral and fish colors are more vibrant than ever before. The automatic timer is great, and easily allows you to customize when and how long you want each of the three various light types to begin and end. The lights came in excellent packing, and after removing the system, I was able to install the mounting brackets and prep the fixture in under 30 minutes. For the price, these can't be beaten.

Great quality , great purchase

This is the first review I've written, I'm really happy with this light so I figured it deserved a good review. The entire light fixture is well built and designed. Marine depot does an outstanding job packing and shipping these things. The light fixture was easy to install. The only downside is that they don't provide a hard copy of the installation guide, its on a CD. When I was installing the lamps one of the silicon bands used to hold the lamps in place snapped and broke. I called up AquaticLife and they sent me 4 replacement bands free of charge, they arrived in 2 days. The AquaticLife people were extremely easy to work with and helpful, I really appreciated it. The built in timer is fantastic, its easy to use and customization of your light schedule is a breeze. The lights themselves are suprisingly bright and my corals immediately perked up when I turned them on. I was expecting more noise from the built in fan having read other reviews, this is far from the case. I couldn't even hear the fan when the lights started, thought it was broken when in fact it was just too quite. The fan does a great job cooling the lights, its not even warm to the touch. My temp has remained constant and this was my major concern. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Easy to program

The light comes with everything, lights, standoffs and built-in time. It was easy to program and it worked very well for 9 days. The lights failed to come on so I contacted the manufacture. No problem they replaced to unit. With all considered great light and good customer service.

AquaticLife PowerCompact CF

Initially received the product that was so well wrapped it was incredible. Had a problem with 1 light which was promptly replaced with 1 phone call/wonderful tech support by the way.Now after running the fixture above my 50 gal acrylic reef tank I am amazed every time I watch my mini ocean. The anemones, corals, sponges and fish and inverts are growing beautifully. Very fascinating to view the night life with the lunar LED's which offer a shimmering light effect. Wonderful product-no noise, easy to program and set up after watching included CD.
