    I've only seen a couple reviews on them and everyone seems to be pleased so far. I've hear that there Customer service seems to be good aswell and the price is very reasonable!

    Heres a link to what I'm looking at, digital/dimable 600w hps cool tube.

    I bought that same unit about 6 mo ago on E-bay, works great! Lots of orange spectrum. I have other air cooled lights that are 600 watts, this unit keeps right up with em..... I think I paid $199.00 with shipping though ??

    yea i was looking at that same listing but for the 400w version.

    Did you happen to get it? Is it worth the savings because I can get same package without the hanger or time but with a Lumatek or Phantom ballast for 80 dollars more. Worth paying more or should i just save?

    I found the Revolt package on ebay from gotham hydroponics yea which is the same as yours.
    The Lumatek or Phantom is from thehydrosource.com they have an ebay store as well but cant customize

    I've been using the revolt for about 7 months, flowers just as good as the name brands, willing to bet they are the same anyway. runs cool don't flicker nothing wrong with it. I would buy a second in a heart beat! If I get a chance I will take a pic of some critical mass 4 weeks under the revolt 600 watt.

    I just got off the phone with victor from gotham hydroponics, he seems like a nice dude and I live 45 min away from his shop so im going to meet up with him him this weekend even though his store is closed, now thats service! He will work with you bigtime on price if you get multiples of his listings, dont want one of the bulbs or a timer etc. I cant find any negative reviews on revolt ballasts i think im gunna go for it.

    I've been on the hunt for an economic ballast/lamp/reflector system, and this looks perfect. Any further experience with the lights anyone? I'm probably going to pick up the 400w hps/mh deluxe kit off ebay. Anyone have any experience with this kit in particular?

    I got the 600w deluxe kit with large reflector. The first package was missing the ballast for some reason, but I called and they sent another right away which I got in another week. It all works perfectly.

    Good to know man. Amazon had several similar package deals at that almost unbelievable price for all that is included. If it works well, Amazon will back up all their shipping. Companies that use Amazon DON'T want to piss off Amazon's customers, so they will keep you happy. I almost ordered one to set up a breeding tent. Hhhmmm...

    I bought on ebay a 400w MH/HPS Revolt ballast w/ air cooled hood, bulbs, timer, and hangers for about $200 w/ shipping. So far, so good! I have no complaints with this setup. It has been working good for me. Although this is my first experience with indoor growing, so I have nothing to compare the Revolt product to. IMO it's woth the money.

    Awesome dude thanks for getting back to me!

    Edit: How well does the dimming function work with the ballast?

    I was very concerned about that seeing I'm growing in a 2x3 closet however I havent had to worry about the heat "YET" lol.. I tested the dimming function on all the settings and you could clearly see the light dim more and more on each setting. As far as the reliability of the dimming I haven't had experience with yet, because i've been able to keep it on full blast. "ask me further along in the summer lol."
