I use the 1500mm SR260 stock standard at this stage. Planning on adding 2 or 3 multi pads in the future.

This was the day I started with the illumina



And after running them for a year



So far I am exceptionally happy with the unit. If I take bulb replacements and electricity savings into account then this unit saved me around R7500 over the last 12 months. Still some time before the unit will have paid for itself but it definitely will.
