  1. Good morning @BrassNwood .
    When I first made the switch from HPS to LED’s I did a bunch of research, and I finally decided to buy my first 2 Spider Farmer 4000’s and it’s been a total game changer in all aspects.
    Since then I have purchased 2 more SF 4000’s and recently I got a Spider Farmer SE 5000 bar style light . The SE 5000 is not just a sexy looking light, it’s a lot bigger than the SF 4000 as far as size and has a better light footprint. It’s been great for a 5 x 5 area. Only problem with the bar style lights is that the par or luxe’s of the light are at its peak directly under the light bars . Anything to the left or right of the bars , and your par or Lux levels drop significantly.
    I had great results with it this last run , and I absolutely love the SE5000 . It’s a badass light and the results speak for themselves.
    The SE 7000 was an option I was looking at , but it’s almost 48 inches x 48 inches big . I decided on the SE 5000 because it was a bit smaller and I wouldn’t have to rearrange everything just to fit the bigger SE 7000.
    If your looking for a quality light to use in a 5 x 5 area based on my experience over the last 3 years of using LED’s , I would recommend the Spider Farmer brand light.
    It’s been extremely dependable, have never had any issues with them at all and the ladies absolutely love them .
    Can’t go wrong with a Spider Farmer LED light .

    I am now leaning towards the ez 8 by medic grow or the fc8000 by Mars. The majority of the lights I've bought have been spiderfarmer, just don't see much from spider farmer that competes at that price point.

  4. Your welcome bud
  5. Hi @Prophet216,
    Ultimately , it comes down to your personal choice and what your going to be happy with .
    There are many choices out there to chose from .
    Good luck with your search.
  6. I have 6 SpiderFarmer led’s never a problem with any of them. I use the SF1000 (100w) for clones, 3 SF4000’s (1 spare) 2 in a 4x8 tent. 2 SE7000’s for a 9’x 7’ grow space. I’m sure the G8600 will be fine! I obviously would suggest the SE 7000 over the G8600 only b/c i’m more familiar with the Samsung diodes. Bridgelux i’m not really familiar with.
