Like I said, if a 44-inch format suits your needs, go for it. I look at Samsung as a supplier, not a competitor. I designed the SolStrip to work well in smaller formats where stringing out 80 chips along a four-foot strip isn't practical or desired. SolStrips have 96 diodes, 48 watts, 9,000 lumens, on a 40 cm strip that can be combined to create any spectrum, or series of spectrums, the grower wants. And for $20 a strip - as good a value or better than the commercial strips.
Samsung produces strips for commercial fluorescent retro-fits. As they should be, they are a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate looking for billion-dollar business opportunities. Designing for the indoor horticulture market isn't even on their radar. That's where producers like SolStrip, HLG, Photon Phantom and ChilLED come in. Dedicated designs for the DIY LED gardener.
