Koondense has completed 1 grow reports. Click to see my Grow Reports
Definitely it's time to switch to leds.
But not to Kind leds, there are far better options around.

Cheers

I'm running the KIND k5 x750 in a 4x4 tent, and my plants seem to love it.

Picked it up used on ebay locally for under 600, and its been smooth sailing with my 1st indoor grow. You can put your hand like an inch away from the LED's and hardly feel any heat at all.

Not too much

the heat they throw is non issue. Gentle, warming not blasting heat like HPS. I doubled my growing space using 2 of these. The growth is fantastic. The plants really respond well. I am close to moving more 4-5 week old babies under them and watch the stretch begin within 2 days. Grow on folks!!!

^^Id imagine they arent top bin though and the lifespan will fall off sooner than top binned tech.. keep an eye on the par output after a few years of use..

Kind LED are so badly over priced they were just one of the first people selling pickaxes in the led gold rush..

The binning is very important, controlling the output spectrum and overall efficiency. The newest tech LEDs are made with ceramic backing, which means they'll take over 10 years to lose 10% efficiency.

The bargain LED's are not ceramic backed and will lose upwards of 30% efficiency, in less than 10 years.

The best bang for your buck right now in LED is DIY. Basic construction, soldering, electrical safety and math skills. You can build a premium quality light for close to $1/watt. This means a 330w light will cost you around $350, plus your time.
