I keep seeing members asking about the best LEDs and what Leds members are using. Lets post our LED light systems and give the members a heads up. That way they have one thread to go too for help with LED lights.
Thanks👍

Just set up two LED lights from Cultivate tech 660 series including a Gateway controller package. These lights push out 1100 watts equivalent any hps or metal halide lights. Awesome dimable control through the gateway connection. The Culivate tech technical support is the best that I’ve dealt with. My Girl Scout Cookies have been under those lights for 17 days now showing explosive growth like I’ve never seen under my HPS/Metal halide system

Team HLG here and very happy but I haven’t tried a lot of others.

I have their 550 rspec in a 4x4 for flower and I have a 2x2 with their 4k 65 watt panel. I tried their 100 watt in the same but it was way too bright and the 100 doesn’t have a dimmable driver. 65 is working like a champ.

we do have a light section. i run a area51 rw75 with two diy vero 18's in one box and the other box has 12 vero 18's. the strip lights are real nice and can be worked to where you have even light across the board. the quantum boards are nice and easy but you have to deal with bright spots as you can spread the light out like you can with cobs and strips. i'll grab some pics to post later.

Used to have 3 Advanced Diamond Series 300 watt LED's. The blurple lights worked good for about 6 or 7 grows, then one whole light quit and a second one half quit. Called their customer service and was told no parts available as they are obsolete. Yeah right and so is this customer.
I then bought a 200 watt LED kit from Timber LED's. Built it and used it in combination with the other ones. Was impressed with the white Timber LED and bought 3 more 200 watt kits. They worked great to use in my 3' X 7' grow room. Have ordered 3 / 100 watt red LED's to supplement flowering. Have not used the new combination yet.

I have used these as a three light system in a bathroom,hanging from a shower stall.and pots in the tub.I love these lights,bright they don't break the bank,and I have grown some good weed under them.One drawback,you can't daisy chain so you have to use a power strip.Other than that,I am highly satisfied.They are very light and not very big.

California lightworks are hands down the best lights I've ever seen and used. They're in the price range with the Chinese lights and American made. The Solar extreme 500 is true 4 x 4 coverage, incredible par, they draw 400watts at 3.2 amps, and weigh 11 pounds. This light is absolutely amazing in my opinion. Ive owned Valspectra, mars hydro, and my friends have other brands and these run circles around them.

specgradeled. Alabaster put me up on these. Not only do they rock the spectrum, but they have the best warranty in the industry. 10 years on the led's and 7 years on the drivers!

I personally would need multiple verta 8's, but many here could easily run the verta 4's:D
