I think you're right with the PAR values. Not sure about the spectrum. I am just starting to read up and I am seeing posts about the white being PAR superior to (what they seem to call) blurple LED. LMAO

So, it looks like that may be the way to go. Also, I'm not sure what they mean by COB LED's. More reading to do. LOL

They use several led on a single chip. Some have lens or optics.

Correct me if I'm wrong but some COB are capable of full spectrum?

Are all COB's white (or mostly)?

What's my line. LMAO

Do the LED's really use less electricity?

We went with smart meters a couple years back and now I am getting letters from the electric company telling me that I am using 2x more electricity than all my neighbors.

Freaks me out. LOL So, a reduction in electricity usage would be a plus for me.

Do you use them? If you do, what kind of results do you get in what kind of setup?

So I got my 1500W King LED Thursday and just had a chance to plug it in and check what kind of Voltage it actually draws. Hooked it up to the voltage meter and it pulls 297 watts. So 37 more watts then advertised. Bright as helll. It will get hung in the Flower Tent tonight. At that time I will test the Mars unit I have in there and see what it draws.

Kill A Watt P3.

The Mars light clocked in at about 10 watts lower but the King 1500 is way brighter.

Here is a pic of one of the buds the King 1200 grew. Just pulled this lady tonight. Fat heavy buds.

Plants seem to love the spectrum. Not to mention you get the outside spectrum lighting as well with no special bulbs or added lighting.
Nice find, Hammy!! Mine arrived yesterday and I have it up and running. It's the answer to all my problems - tropical heat, need for serious ventilation to feed the S&P inline cooling fan, it's compact, no need for cool tube, low energy usage... Ima buy another for the veg tent.

400 watt HPS, ballast, noisy S&P fan and cool tube free to a good home

You da man, Hammy. Over!
