New LED Grow Advice Needed

  1. I currently grow 3 plants in a 3 1/2'x3 1/2'x 6' grow box with a 250 watt MH/HPS grow light.  I am looking to replace this with one LED grow light that can also maintain 3 plants successfully within this grow box from seed to harvest.  My budget is around $300 give or take which I am hoping is enough to buy what I need to grow 3 plants.  Any and all advice/opinions are appreciated and I look forward to everyone's input.  Thanks ahead of time!!!

  2. In for answers. In a previous thread I was told to go with a 900w LED for a similar sized tent. Personally, I think I will try to get away with a 700w to save $80.
  3. mars II 700w LED is what i went with. $310 on ebay. havent started using it yet, but price/reviews made it feel like a no-brainer. its solidly built and is really, really bright. like sunglasses dont do shit bright.
    This is exactly the light I was wanting to get. You think it will be sufficient for a 3x3x6 tent? You chose the 700w over the 400w? Did you buy it new or used? I was going to try to score one on alibaba.
  5. i bought it new on ebay. was looking for something like a 400w, but the 700w was so affordable i went big. the specs say its meant for a 3.5'x3.5' space, i plan on buying your exact size tent for the grow.
  6. What tent you going with? I'm gonna get a Secret Jardin Darkroom II.
  7. not sure. i havent started looking for one yet.

    If not buy another one when you can haha. It's like 360 true watts isn't it so already more then your old one. I'm going from a 250HPS to two 400's in a similar area. Would the 2nd owner still be able to use the warranty?
