Light recommendationPosted by bigbob33 on July 9, 2020 at 5:34 pm
CCurrently running t5’s for veg and 3x600w hps for flower, I’m looking for something a little more economical to run …
What would you guys recommend? I’m not super rich so I guess high end led lights are off the menu.
Many thanks in advanceDeleted User replied 2 years, 9 months ago 15 Members · 17 Replies

II’m quite interested in the hgl 550 v2….

I have the 550 v2 rspec. Its a great light in a 4×4 set-up. They we’re just discontinued and replaced by the 600r. Looks to be another great light, but that would be more for a 5×5..
Do some searching and you can find some 550’s out there at a really good price..

OK.. . I’ve narrowed it down to the lumatek Zeus 600 or the hgl 550 r spec v2… anyone had experience with either of those?

If you get the lumatek make sure you get the PRO but yeah i would go for the lumatek zeus 600w pro. Check out migros review & test, its a very sold light.

If you have it in the budget go Luxx 645 if not definitely go HLG

I would use 2 or 3 Mars Hydro TS3000 depending on your grow size.

I just finished building my own lights. I got all the parts from rapidled.com. My total parts list came in just under $300, if I were to buy the same lights already built they would have been over $600. I just added these four Cree COBS to my blurple and I am getting great light. If you interested in a parts list, let me know, happy to send you what I put together. Here is the completed project. From my understanding these LED’s consume much less power.

I’m using maxisun pb2000 ( 3 of them ) in a 4×4 tent, first grow with them but plants love em, on sale they are $230 per on amazon. I added ir ( they have near ir diodes ) with $10. Ir diodes for .50c each and an arduino nano ( $3 ) with a light sensor ( $1) wrote a basic program, light sensor senses lights on and turns ir on.. light company’s rape people for single ir diodes in their lights imo. 🙂
