So, i pulled the trigger on this light today. After reading through the forums, this seems to be one of the best choices for full cycle in a smaller area. What are your thoughts? Pros & Cons? Things to be wary of? I already have a Vivosun VS2000 on 2 photo plants atm and plan on using the HLG is another area for autoflower.
It’s a great choice. I run 260XLs in my tents.
Same. I run two in my 4x4 tent.
They’re great lights but really anything hlg usually is
Pros…super efficient. Customer service. Build. Brightness. Heat dissipation.
Cons…uhhhh. hmmmmm. Darn cant think of any.
Wait i found a con. You only got 1.
@Storm hahaha. Yea at 318 bucks and what ive already spent for startup, including building a climate controlled area, ill have to wait a month or 2 before purchasing another one… just glad i waited and did my research because i was about to get a Grow Light Science…
Buy direct from their site and use a discount code. It was always DUDE but may have changed to GROW in May. An easy 10%
If dont see a promo just call them. They will give 1. Gave me 20% off a new model driver.
Ditto! Love mine as well.
Also if you are a veteran email HLG they will give you a 25% off coupon. I got a refurbished 550v2 Rspec for like $400ish shipped.
Dang man. I shoulda pulled out that card. Keep forgetting. My Airforce girl and Navy son never forget. Its been over 30 years for me.
Wish I had known that when I ordered mine… Oh well… Someday, I’ll likely be light shopping again.
Yea…about 7 years or so if not just getting larger grow. Damn fine lights.
Good choice. I replaced my cmh 315 with an hlg 350r. Bit of a learning curve, but I’m super happy with it so far. That indica plant on the left is unlike any plant I’ve ever grown, and I’m sure the light has a lot to do with it. Haven’t even used full power yet.
Newt what size tent is that 260 xl “plus” in???
2 by 4.
Reason i asked is i have a pair of qb 288 v2 boards sitting in a box courios is any advantage to adding it to mine other than efficiency.
I found that according to my DLI meter, I get a more even coverage across the tent. And I think there may be a small advantage for longevity by not having to run anything at max to get my desired DLI. But that could also be completely wrong.
