Can’t even see that website on my PC. Just a strip across the middle with menus across the top and bottom covering almost the whole screen.

It’s the bulb that makes the difference with light like that and a cheap, no-name bulb will give cheap, no-name results. I prefer Hortilux bulbs myself and have them in 400, 600 and 1000W sizes. No DEs tho.

:peace:

You have to click in between the top and bottom banners Lab, for some reason its in huge scale, when you click on the banner then click on the little box that says original and it will be the right size.

Could be hard to say the light manufacturers in China are always giving false info. Personally I like the ballasts separate so I can have them outside my tent.

Honestly everything is made in china now anyway! I’m not sure if the price is good in comparison to a “better brand” but if it is I’d give it a try if i was gonna use a hps.

Personally I would look used before I would buy that. The ballast inside the tent will heat it up. You can absolutely do better I think if you look around. I got a 600 watt HPS complete with bulb for $50 used. It works great.

I would go LED you will save money on the power bill. I have 2 600w HPS/HID digital ballasts and bulbs been in there box for the last 6 months, I will be selling one soon. I just want 1 to keep my flower room warm in the winter as the LEDs don’t make enough heat for when ambient temps drop past minus 10. It gets a bit chilly in my work shop without heat out there.

Yeah only decent LEDs compete with them, I think mine is the vivosun, it’s got Sun in it’s name anyway lol, I paid 160$ on Amazon came with all the same stuff as what he has on the one he ordered.

Even though they are cheap and work very well, when you do the the math, they use 2/3 more power than a good LED light, it doesn’t take long to get your money back.

HPS $1.40 a day to run in flower, $2 a day vegging, plus all the power used to cool the tent down.

Compared to LED 47 cents a day flower and 67 cents a day vegging no contest, and why I am selling it. The 100$ will pay for another Veg LED build for my clone cab :grinning:
