The light is extremely overpriced for what you get. It isn’t a 600 watt light. Trickery is used to get to 600 watts. The actual wattage of the light is 368. Keep in mind that any LED that has veg and bloom switches or an integrated fan isn’t going to be worth the money charged. The most effective, efficient LEDs are built with Samsung LM301 series diodes.
2 marshydro sp3000 could be a good budget setup for a 4x8 space.
I have a 4x6 tent i run a Growers Choice Roi-e720 in, it is an example of a top brand light that doesn’t use Samsung diodes so they are out there.
I also have a marshydro sp3000 in a 2.5x5 closet and it does extremely well so 2 of them would work great in the 4x8.
Easiest way to tell fir someone that doesn’t know anything about led lights is stay away from any thst have “veg-bloom” switches and/or if it gives off "purple " light…
These lights will work but its old technologies and the newer tech is much better
Tents are cheap. Real lights are not cheap. And thats a ripoff ultra cheap over priced hunk of china crap. In a 4x8 for me the min. would be 2ea. HLG Scorpion Rspec. Preferable would be 2ea. HLG Scorpion Diablos. Use discount code EVERGREEN for a 20% discount right now on HLG website.
May i ask, besides the obvious, time and just being around growing.
Where did you learn so much about light’s? I’d like to really get a good understanding of them because since i started growing last year i see this “fake” 600w, or trickery and misleading used a lot.
I actually havent done a youtube search yet. Ive actually spent the last 6 months trying to learn digital audio work station’s for music production. I think i blocked out youtube in my mind, people on there can be a great help… but idk, they annoy me lol. Maybe it’s because it was all wannabe rappers and producers i was trying to learn from for the most part.
Thats a great idea. I didnt even think about that. I dont even have a facebook, kinda opposed to it. Had one in college then some random dude from high school i didnt know at all, like wasnt good or bad, just neutral, we were switzerland. Friended me on that, deleted and aint look back a decade ago…
