I broke down and bought another 100 watt MVB . after burning 12 hours its putting out around 70 MP of UVB at 12'' . So i stilll have one 10.0 48 '' zoo-med repisun and a 48'' 5000k full spectrum tube next to the powersun . I never did hear anything more about my megaray replcement bulb , after i sent them the info they asked for .:p:huh:

its now only putting out 35 MW of UVB at 12''. BUT if you read the question and answer page that come with the bulb . They state that the bulb put out levels of UVA and UVB , like noon in the shade . Which would only be 35 MV of UVB or less . so when using this bulb you reptile is setting in the shade all the time . So I have mine text to a 48'' 10.0 repti-sun and a 48'' 500ok full spectrum tube . I wish Megray would ever keep there promises , i sure would like to try the bulb again with my sick Rhino . It to cold to put mine outside until i get power to the green house .

I have tried every phone number and e-mail .on reptile uv web site when i e-mail then sent me a message to call , when i call they say they are to busy and i should e-mail . I did get one e-mail asking for my purchase info on the bulb i return , which had all the info with it . I have sent the info twice since and no reply . I told them i had a very sick Rhino and they said they would sent me a prototype as they were out of bulbs , that was over a months ago . BOY have i tried and tried .

Hey Robert, Sam here from ReptileUV.
I'm very sorry to hear about the condition of your rhino ig,
if you could provide me with either a transaction ID or Receipt ID
I'd be more then happy to get this sorted out for you. At the moment,
however were currently out of stock since our huge lawsuit with the
distributor of the Solar Raptor line, although in the meantime given
the circumstances we could send one of our prototypes for our new line
of MegaRay lamps, which is very close to our original design. Please
let me know at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,
Sam MacCargar
ReptileUV ''



just tried calling all three number again on Retile UV web site and got mailbox full message for both Sam And Bob . :s

Glad you were able to get your bulbs ordered. Who did you deal with at Westron, Mitch or Mike ? . I actually went to the retail area of the warehouse and I found Westron is the manufacturer of Megaray ,Power sun , Solar glow and all the other active UV a/b bulbs on the market
