Overall quality is good, however the water turn style doesn't cover the whole area of the sprouting trays when in operation (it turns too fast; a bit slower and it will have excellent coverage over the whole sprout tray area). The seeds I used were the 5-bean sprout mix and red wheat. From "seeding" to Harvest; this device takes about a little less than a week to a full week before you can eat. It doesn't require light per se, but it will help speed the process a bit. I am quite pleased with this item and are looking for other seeds to sprout to see how it turns out.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fine
