    Hey
    I'm looking for some good LED grow light panel and I need some advice here. What LED grow light would you recomend me, something that doesn't exceed $350. Something like marshydro or supernova? Something that has veg and bloom mode?

    I have one 1200 and one 1500 of these King LED's. I love them.

    https://kingledlights.com/

    If you have Amazon Prime you can get them for 5 bucks cheaper for the 1200 and 10 bucks cheaper for the 1500 with free 2-day shipping.

    Any reason your going with 1500 and 1200 instead of 2 1500?
    Seems it would be a more even light spread????
    Just curious.

    I bought the 1200 first to try out the brand. Once I knew I liked it I bought a better light from them.

    Few months back i was looking for a good quality light for my 3X3 grow fixture.
    After a lot of hassle I was still confused.
    Then opted for Viparspectra V1200 to get started instead of wasting time in selecting the one.
    Here's the Source to which i considered and got a genuine review.
    So far it's doing great.
    Hope it helps.
    Cheers.

    Ham, that thing needs a warehouse so as not to toast the plants! For most indoor personal use grows I think a light that is capable of being within 12-18 inches of the plant in flower is probably better. That's why I use 600 watt lights. In HPS, 600 watts was considered most efficient so that's what I used. When I moved over to LED I just found they worked best for me. I had a King 1000. Remember them? After the first grow I opened it up to clean it and found the board said right on it in nickle plated gold print 300 watts! Not saying they aren't good, lotsa people love 'em but I personally had a bad experience. That was my 1st ever led grow light so what did I know? Still got it as a matter of fact. Well, I let a friend use it.

    Almost all LED lights are recommended to be at a 18 to 24 inch range over the plants I believe. And yeah I believe my 1500 King LED pulls under 400 watts. They usually use a number that is the equivalent to a HPS light. Not actual draw. I love my King LED Lights. For the money they kick ***.
