    I am currently using two California lightworks solar system 550's and the California lightworks solar system far red 100w all the loghts are controlled with one touch screen controller with options like sunset sunrise mode and ability to adjust the spectrum like an equilizer. Next grow i will be adding the California lightworks UVB. This is in a 4x8 tent. This is my first Grow attempt since losing my origional first grow to a fire. Just hit flower yesterday.

    Spydr is really a good light. But for most of people, the price would fear them away. They would like to pick better price quantum board LED like HLG or MarsHydro SP.

    Interesting, buddy. Which is better? Two SP250 can be comparable to SF4000?

    480 i believe. But the output and coverage would take 3 sp250s to match or beat it. Im impressed with both lights in my 5x5. The plants really respond to the spectrum.

    Their chips are different, spider farmer uses the Samsung LEDs, sp250 just uses the epistar. I also use Mars Hydro SP250, they run well with my girls.

    Also, Do you dudes use mars TSL2000? How's it work? When I decided to buy my first LEDs for my 4x4 tent, I hesitated between TSL2000 and SP250, finally attracted by SP250 MeanWell. Really want to know which one is more worthwhile.

    I looked into the tsl2000 because it supposedly puts more light out than the sp250. I chose the meanwell driver option as well. Not that im mr. Led knowledge or anything, i was just listening to the advice of others who really seem to know the subject. Migro on youtube has an amazing and easy to understand channel of all things led.

    I'm running led in 2 of 3 tents. A 5x5 with duel Viparspecta 900V's. A 4x4 with a Optic 4 on a light mover. Each tent setup produces 32 wall watts per sq/ft.
    Light rail (light mover) work great in 4x4 and larger tents. It doesn't replace having multiple lights that intersect, but it will increase the footprint.

    Just ordered a spiderfarmer 2000 to supplement my existing HPS and will report back as to how well the girls take to some LED sunshine. Thanks to everyone who has guinea pigged this technology, as I'm a bit of a luddite and had been dragging my heels on the way into the Future! : )
