Whoa!  Your question was about obtaining an inexpensive, high output
light hood with the stipulation that you could not DIY.  There were at
least three responses, one of which suggested better quality 40 w
bulbs or MH bulbs.  The responses pointed out that you could NOT buy
high output light hoods cheaply and suggested some alternatives with
as little DIY as possible. I apologize for the collective APD that we
could not come up with the answer you were looking for.

Geez, there have been 43 posts realted to lighting so far this month
(just based on post titles) and, what, 5 or 6 jousts between Roger and
Jean and their defenders?  And even with the semantics debate, the
posts contained some excellent information on plant mechanics. 

Sure, the off-topic stuff stands out from the rest but there is plenty
of other stuff being discussed. I'm sorry if topics drift sometimes
but there are, like, PEOPLE sending these messages and you know how
people get sometimes. Luckily, I'm a computer so you won't find ME

Oh, wait, this whole thing is a drift. Rats!

I think we settled that last year -- 27 or 28 depending on the length
of their pectral fins. <g>
