LED Opinions

Post by Grimreefer on Wed 13 Jul 2011, 9:32 pm

What do you guys think about these lights? I am not the brightest when it comes to LEDs and would really appreciate everyone's opinions.

I had a buddy just get one of these exact lights in. I'll get his opinions and let you know what he thinks. He owns an aquaculture company... if that gives him any credibility. lol

Tony
It looks like a good deal to me but it advertises a USA seller but if you look it comes from Hong Kong which is nothing wrong with that but it will take about two-three weeks to get here but for that price man I don't see how you could go wrong. It says it uses three watt leds and if it does it will be more light than your Metal Halides, my JBJ uses 3 watt and its intense, at least you can raise them if need be. I would say go for it and try them out at that price!

Looks like they have 2 different lights pictured there. The one in the pic looks just like my 1 watt led unit except it's white.

Count the number of leds gabe. I thought the same thing when I saw it at first. The three watt leds look the exact same as the 1 watt leds with no optics on them...

Another thing I thought... This appears to be 2 white leds for 1 blue led. Mine are 1 to 1 and I get 14k color. So I'm not sure what the k rating would be.

I did. There are 2 different lights in that pic. It also says "LED Grow Light 120W" but it also says 25*3w blue and 30*3w white which comes out to 165 watts.

I asked him if this was the same LED and what he thought of it. He said it looked like the same LED fixture, and that it was equivalent to a little more than a 250w MH. He said it was approx 18k color temp. He's going to double check and make sure that it's the exact same and let me know.

I believe he just ordered 3 of them from champion and paid a lot more than that price... so he's very interesting in finding out if it's the exact same. He was very impressed with the fixture. :-)

Hey, if you order, this one is listed in California instead of Hong Kong.
