Nice setup. I wish that information had been available when I started! I wouldn’t be using the ones I have. I’m sure there are a lot of us that got sucked down that road with the cheapatron led’s.
They look great! And I hate when USPS doesn’t ship
When they’re supposed to. Busy time of the year.
Not sure how long you’ve been at it, but the qb’s weren’t even a twinkle in the eye two years ago. And the price for decent cobs is still up there.
I think the majority of it can be attributed to none of us really knowing any better. Try pretending you don’t know any different and look at the advertising on a $100 light vs $1000 light. All you see is a lot of big numbers and a pretty chart, and then you laugh thinking anyone spending $1000 for nearly the same thing is an idiot.
Been there, done that, and it sucks! If it’s within your means, spending a little more on lighting will almost always pay dividends immediately. Even if it means saving up for a little while longer. Too bad most of us learn the hard way lol.
It came! I’ll post pics once I have time to build it!

@dbrn32 @BIGE I have everything in my cart on Amazon and I’m gonna give it a once over to make sure it’s all good and then place the order! I’ve been doing a bunch of home renovation the past few weeks to get ready for our Friendsgiving party tomorrow! Busy busy!!! Can’t wait to grow with this light! I’ll start a new journal for just the quantum boards once I get going One more bowl before bed
Even with with all the anticipation, you’re probably going to be surprised at how bright it is. I have one, and it’s like neck jerk and squint bright if you accidentally glance in it’s direction.
It’s almost exactly the same feeling, but you will get it instantly and be disoriented within seconds if you stare at full power.
Edit… because I know you will have to see for yourself @MattyBear. It’s obviously not good to look at. Your eyes will tell you so, very quickly.
i use glasses i my grow for sure !mine go over readers and have blinders on them…lol
Me too. Well not the readers part, but I’ll need them soon if I can’t start resisting to look at all the pretty lights.
i bought some laser lights for christmas this year. no more hanging those rascals…
upon setting them up where they shine on house and trees, i may have given myself retina damage! lol
dr. evil must have frikin’ lazer beams!!!
Can’t seem to leave those damn lasers either haha
I can’t wait to get my hands on one soon. Side project for now! @MattyBear love to see what it grows!
@BIGE @dbrn32 I have some led glasses already and I will make sure not to stare at the pretty lights! I ordered some Maui Waui and Blue Dream seeds and I wanted to start those seeds next under the new light.
I wanted to get those laser house lights but there are too many reports of “Grinches” stealing them out of people yards
Ok, just ordered a new 3x3x6 tent, 4” 203cfm exhaust fan and carbon filter, ducting, Aphrodite’s Extraction, and a second set of trimmers for my wife! Everything will be here in 2 days, other than the tent which should be here 12/22-12/28
