So are the less good for say a six light grow? Mostly only see them in use in single light grows and sometimes two light grows but I'm rocking six and dont know if it'll truly be a change in the right direction for my grow.

You can run the old x o pattern, Where "X" is a plant and "O" is a light viewed from the top.

Happy New Yrs guys.....Wanted to stop in and say thanks again for all the LED input and let all know about what I found......I thought from back in the day Alibaba only sold multiple sets of all they offer and back then you hadta register and be approved to buy shit , or at least like a line of credit , but I said nuh uh and never went back again till a friend said last week they even sell samples nowadays 1 at a time , and I went a huntin......

After lookin till my eyes bled , I found Quantum board fixture kits the equivalent of Horticulture lighting group`s exact fixtures shipped to the US for $136 for the 240 watt 2 panel 576 chip units with brand new Samsung lm301H/for horticulture , and HLG 240 H meanwell dimmable drivers......panels pre-assembled and simple add hardware for hangers and attach driver down to heatsink on top......everything electrical is waterproof sealed connectors and at most 10 minutes you`re ready to hang em and plug em in.....

I bought 2 of the 3 panel units with 864 diodes and HLG 320 dimmable drivers for $ 428.70 delivered to the door , so $ 214.50 +/= for a 320 watt top of the line unit don`t piss me off .....Guess that "patience is a virtue" sayin helped my old ass out this time.....anyways.....

There`s deals to be had over there boys and girls , but shipping may take a minute from some companies , so that`s 1 drawback , but I can wait a few weeks for savin 100`s .....

Peace.....DHF...........

Nice score DHF, That’s a pretty good deal! Alibaba is pretty legit, just like anything else......doing homework is the key.

HLG wants 485 bucks for the exact 320 watt fixture I`m gettin for 214.50 , and 350 bucks for the 240 watt units they want 136 bucks for on Alibaba.....and HLG`s kits look to need wiring compared to these pre-wired 2 and 3 panel units , so just another plus for my choice.....

Take care guys , and do your homework ....shit gets cheaper by the minute.....lol....

Peace.....DHF...........

That's cheaper than the 240 watt kit I bought back in April. I fabd up some aluminum to mount it the way I wanted. It was just the heat sinks, panels, driver and wiring.

I paid 250 for my 300 watt mars tsl2000.

Good buy DHF.

I have no experience how warranties work thru Alibaba.....guessing it depends on the seller?

But I do have experience on how Mar’s warranty works. IT DONT, they do not honor it I found out the hard way. Buyer Beware.

Damn!

When I pull one of my rooms offline later this, I'd like to see how these compare to my 315s. If I can not use AC like I do in the winter, I might be able to make a case for them.

Did a lotta research guys....and either they`re legit , or it`s all a front for the Chinese Communist Party.....lol.....They`ve been in the Lighting Manufacturing Biz for 17 yrs , so not just some wholesaler/re-seller hawkin knock-offs...

They`ll even put your name/logo on em for X number of units purchased , so evidently there`s folks out there re-selling said units on ebay , amazon and other places I`m sure.....anyways.....

Just tryin ta help .....I wanted to get the light bar type units like the Gavita s , but they`re too expensive for the same wattage and drivers for no apparent reason in my book , so Good luck and Caveat Emptor/let the buyer beware.....

Peace....DHF..........
