That’s what’s I’m concerned with. I found a company out of Pennsylvania that has the 550 rspec for $560. They use the same driver and the Samsung led’s. I haven’t priced the 260’s yet, but they assemble & test the lights before they ship. They have gotten great reviews. Update. I just checked price of the 260’s. $264, plus $19 for shipping. They arrive assembled. I’m now leaning towards the 550. I’m thinking that one fixture will be less prone to heat. I only grow 4 plants in my tent so I think it will be adequate
@Otis Yeah they put off heat. I think I read where someone mentioned about putting there drivers on the outside of the tent. I was thinking about trying that and see if it would help with the heat inside the tent.

What’s the company?
Sounds like a middle man that just facilities the Chinese purchase from Alibaba
The company is Hygrow lighting solutions. They are out of Pennsylvania. I’ve been messaging them. They assure that these are the Samsung LED’s. They are also using the newer im301h LED’s. Mean well drivers. They have received a lot of good reviews. I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. I’m about 1/4 way into a grow now. These guys are a lot cheaper… but I have to do more research to see if they are legit…
@Otis I can say my babies love my HLG 260xl kits. Even though I grow on a 12/12 schedule from start to finish and I can say my plants are way bigger now. They keep thanking me for the change.
Can’t find anything on them aside from their own webpage and their Facebook page… My Geuss is just a middleman for bulk Chinese copy cat QB’s.
Dabble at your own risk, I’m sure they will work and work good but if by chance you have a faulty product or have a warranty issue I bet you will have a fight on your hands and my guess is they arnt going to warranty anything and jsut ignore you because they are so new.
I think it’s a license to build these to spec. and a price cap to weed out the rip off sites. If it’s too cheap, pass ! Better yet build it yourself!
That’s what I’m talking about! Looks great. I think I am going to wait until next grow and go with the 550!
