this product is very easy to use & that's a definite plus in my book :D
the only bad thing to this product is the clear plastic that comes with it that covers the light, but the plastic is removable after you unscrew two screws on the other side of the product, & you now have a usable light! :D
i just set mine on top of my red eared slider turtles' tank & i'm done.
I would recommend this to a friend!

the light itself is a very good replacement for my old hood. the light has an acrylic (i guess?) lens that can be removed easily via two screws as to not hamper the rays. above the light in the base it actually has a tin material that reflects all the rays from up in the light back down which was a nice touch.
my gripe about this light is that i have it on an automatic timer and the light does not fire on 100% of the time... probly just a little defect in mine though.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Ok on the fixture itself it says to remove the acrylic...all you need to do is unscrew it and the cover comes off and you have a usable light.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Completely useless

This fixture has an acrylic cover over the bulb. Acrylic filters out UVB light, which is what reptiles need most. This lens cover makes the whole thing useless and a waste of money.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
