What's going on with Lumatek's 1000 watt ballast. I know that they released some (on a trial basis) a while ago, but they still are not widely available. Does anyone know when they will be available and what the reason has been for the hold up (Technical problems, etc.)??

Any comments on 1000 watt digital ballasts would be appreciated.

Good luck getting any info..
this board has the pulse of my dear old great granny...
My shop here in houston told me they were buggy and
having many issues... unconsistant bulb firing, heat, and so on..
i would hope it gets fixed soon.

yeah you should probably hold off on buying a 1000 watt digital until the second generation ones come out, then the bugs will be worked out. i've read on a number of other forums that when the first lumatek digital ballasts came out there were a lot of problems, like the cases getting real hot and inconsistent performace. so you should probably wait until some other guinea pig gets tested on first.
