    I can't find any internet site that sells these. Anyone have any idea?
    They have them at my work and the 2x24W is £34.99 (will also get 15% discount), but wondered if anywhere online was selling them cheaper.
    No doubt we will come to the conclusion that it's best to get it from work hehe.

    I was looking at getting the dual 54w from Aceaqua for £30 ish which I thought was a bargain. Not really got the money and plans are sort of changing now anyway...

    *Thread hijack*

    So, the HO units... Can you use any T5 tube with these or do they have to specifically be HO? Does it just get a bit more "bang for buck" from a standard tube? The High Output thing is confusing me :)

    If you use a HO starter with a normal T5 tube they will run extremely hot and burn out faster, or at least that is my understanding as the normal T5 tubes aren't designed to be driven so high as the HO tubes. At under £4 a tube for HO daylight tubes though why would you go with normal ones?

    To be honest I hadn't looked at prices :) Thanks for the info, worth knowing if I go down the HO route :)
