Great Color retention
For cost, instant on, and reliability you cannot beat this light. Yes it uses 300 watts. I also hooked up a 100 watt metal halide with a LPF ballast and it was using 2.7 amps. So either way your at 300 watts. Halogen bulb life is shorter but hey life is short why not enjoy under light that has 100% color retention. Metal halides are at 67cri and HPS is around 30. I do recommend aiming these below the horizon if you have neighbors besides the more light on the the less your paying for in the air. Ps use engine paint when painting fixtures do get warm.

Followed the Doug review and I wasn't sorry. I had tried an LED and Metal Halide light just wasn't satisfying. This Halogen is perfect and since you can order 100 watt up to 500 watt bulbs for it this is even better. I put a dimmer on mine several complements. As other reviewer mentioned perfect light. I followed the advice of Doug and though I was aiming light too low (it fills more natural to aim and point it outward) I was surprised even leveling the light straight down the effect is wonderful. People who have been putting up those "white" almost blue LEDs don't know what they are missing.

I put one of these up two years ago and recently replaced it with a 100 W MH floodlight. Overall, this is a very cheap and poorly made light. The paint was beginning to dull, the gasket in the mounting arm split open and the sockets showed signs of decay. Expect that it will only last a few years.
