Glad to see this get done again. I was wondering if you could visually tell any difference between the two different sets of units they sent you just by looking at them and also looking at the light or something maybe? Just kinda curious what was changed for these lights. Good luck

Rumple,
Has anything been changed climate wise? Temprature settings, Co2, distance between lights and plant? What is / will be different besides the different lights from the last experience?

Bloody hell Rumple I'm really jealous of your lights. Two of those babies would fit in my grow-space just right. Completely out of my league money-wise but I can dream. :)
I'll just have to soldier on with my cheap Chinese ebay ufo's which, with a little cfl help, do work.
I really enjoyed your last grow and I'll be following this one with interest.
Good luck mate.

I know Rumple wants these lights to work as well or better than the HIDs, and so do I, but looking at their website these lights look just like ever other on the market (and exactly like the lights from the previous grow): cheap Chinese made lights that were designed for Christmas trees and have been repackaged to make a fast buck.

Hope I'm wrong.

Even cheap Chinese lights can grow good pot with a little help. :)

Read through the end of the previous LED grow: lower yield, increased flower time, and more electricity used. Not to mention the lights cost $700 each.

The mistake many are making is looking at the unit as a whole, while neglecting the fact the the light engine portion (the LEDs) are replaceable, no matter what the crappy chassis looks like or how Engrish-y the writing is. It could be a case of Prosource spec'cing out different amounts of a specific wavelength LED, or a different manuafacturer for them (Cree, Luxeon, the list goes one).

Looking forward to the results of this grow out, Rumple!
