How do these work compared to a 8" blockbuster reflector?
The OG Vertical reflector is known for outputting more intensity than standard reflectors that position bulbs horizontally. That said, at the same height above your canopy (e.g. 24 inches) the OG reflector would have more intensity directly below it, but not cover as large of a footprint (like maybe 3' x 3'), while the BlockBuster 8" reflector would not be as intense directly below, yet would cover a larger area (like 4' x 4'). So when using the OG hood, you will want to keep it up higher from the canopy--we recommend about 36 inches. From that height the OG covers a larger footprint, about 4' x 4' and you still get good intensity throughout your grow space.
Innovative design and technology. We are not a “me too” type of company. We strongly believe in idea of innovation and cutting edge ideas to push the limit of new technologies and possibilities in this industry.
The OG Reflector from GrowLite features CVAT-Concealed Vacuum Airflow Technology for maximum yield. GrowLite's CVAT technology has proven to expand the lumen performance produced by the lamp to increase reflector efficiency by 30%. Compared to the average reflector, the OG Reflector's technology will create more uniform light nutrients and produce larger yields at harvest time.

- ok Review by d
Cons: Reflector runs very hot and have a beam like projection so very small footprint. I ran 4 hoods in a large room with an inline fan, room heated up excessively. For comparison, I recently bought four raptor 8 hoods and now the grow room under the same conditions is at least 15 degrees hotter. Also I realize now that the og hood is very noisy because of all the pieces of aluminum that vibrate. (Posted on 8/21/14)
- great product only one draw back Review by growbylight
The first thing I noticed was the quality of the product and how easy it was to open the reflector to install the bulb, no tools necessary! I needed to adjust my ventilation system from 6"-8" which was well worth the time, my environment was much easier to control.
The overall growth that my plants experienced was noticeable over ONE light cycle! I've had great results since then including even growth along the canopy.
The only drawback that I'm experiencing at this time is my plants are out of control, and as one of the GrowerHouse employees warned me, my plants are getting too close to the reflector. This problem was solved by taking out the ratchet light hanger and replacing with some small D-rings, this added about 6".
Overall this product is awesome! Don't settle for anything less than a real OG! (Posted on 10/17/12)
