I used a 250 hps system. Hated it. I hated the heat, the energy waste, and I hated leaving my apartment with that thing ‘buzzing’ in my small space.
I went out to the Migro development centre. Once you meet Shane you understand why he has such a loyal following. His attention to detail, knowledge and craftsmanship are just blinding. I got the all singing version of the Array 120w with Osram reds, I think it was 210 euro. Not the cheapest but you’re paying for the very best craftsmanship around.
Go to the website, check out the numbers, the PAR readings are just unbelievable. He keeps everything just below 1,000 PAR because you need supplemental CO2 over 1000. So basically, unless you understand how to introduce C02 and metre it into the tent, any system over 1000 PAR is pointless. The Migro readings are about 900-980.
He’s the most honest man I’ve met in this industry. Watch his reviews of other lights, he’ll gladly admit if someone is better than him but right now, his readings are class leading. Beats Mars, Spider Farmer etc and for only a few bucks more.
