Is a Regent HPS bucket light worth getting? « on: December 04, 2018, 09:30:26 PM » Author: Cole D.
So I thought about getting a Regent HPS bucket light. It's one of those white metal ones with built in photocell. It would cost me about $25, and it's used but has the box. I mostly want to get it because I don't have an HPS fixture and it's only 70W so I could run it in my room and not waste too much power. Plus it's relatively small and easy to store.

I thought about get a GE 201SA HPS but I already have a MV one and it's hard to find that or any other NEMA head in the lower 50 or 70W. One day I hope to get a cobra head but it can't happen right now. The Regent mini bucket should be easier to store too.

So what do you guys think? I know the ballast in these weren't that good, at least I heard the MV ones weren't with underdriven lamps, etc.

If you want it ,have room for it and can afford it GO FOR IT! assuming it works, not everyone has the room or cash for a cobra, large or small. how many times i've seen a fixture and thought "COOL, but where the (...) am I gonna put it?" HOWEVER, if you can't live without it, GET IT! figure the rest out later
