I give this gear 10 out of 10 acorns.  I got the 45 watt, square hanging light.  The fixture has 144 LEDs in a combination of Blue, Red, White, Infrared and UV.  It comes with a nice wire rope hanging system so you can just hook it to something and you're all set.  The plug was a two prong.  It's about 10" to a side.  The website has much more information about the color profile and other technical details.

I hung it over my greenhouse plants a few days ago and they haven't died.  Of course it's too soon to tell a difference but I'm sure they appreciate the extra illumination.

Here's a picture of it after unwrapping and plugged in on the kitchen table.

I give these grow lights 10 out of 10 acorns.  I have used them for 2 springs now, and they seem to work well. I own a total of 4 units with 2 more on order.  I find they work far better than the fluorescent lights I had been using. I pot seeds in about 1/2 the time span the standard gardening books call for. If the books say I need to start seeds in March to plant in May, with these lights, I can start the seeds on April.
