"Not Bad At All"
While I wouldn't purchase one at this point in my fishkeeping life (I use glass canopies and higher tech lights now) I feel I have to review this because the two that I have from years ago are still working.
Yes, they are impossible to get clean. Yes, they are a little noisy. But when you have a product that has lasted for twenty years without a failure, you have to say something nice about it. The ballasts still fire up just like the day they were purchased. So while I would never recommend that anyone buy an aquarium hood in the first place, I can't dismiss these as anything less than a strong product.

"I wouldn't recomend these to my worst enemy"
These are complete junk. The plastic breaks and wears quickly and it doesn't ever get clean even if you scub it. No reflector in it either, do they think aquarists are idiots to offer such an inferior product.

"Not bad for the price"
I have had several hoods which over time have fallen apart due to heat, or just the plastic breaking down. This hood is not too expensive and has lasted several years without the hinges breaking or cracking.
