What is the difference between this light and the ones with reflectors?

@ned The difference between new SP250 and old reflector series:

1.Spectrum ratio: SP leds are sunlike light with more white leds, while our reflector are blurple lights with more red leds. But both series are full spectrum, just the ratio is different.

2.Fan: SP has no fan, zero noise; Reflector has fans with noise.

3.PPFD: From our test, SP led has higer PPFD(par per watt), more efficient.

4.And SP250 is IP65 waterproof, meanwell driver.

OK, first question, it appears that the SP250 is touching the tent walls. I’ve always tried to avoid this to protect both the tent as well as giving the light better air circulation for cooling. Is one of your SP series lights touching the tent considered to be ideal or even OK?

@monkeydo Yes the light is touching the tent, because the light is in 3x3 tent, this SP250 led is better for 2x4 tent. But it doesn't matter.

@ctlc993 Our light drivers can be removed outside, the heat issue is not a problem 😆

Yeah, I am leaning towards an SP250.. if it really does fill out a 2x4, that would be epic. 

The 144 is a solid light but wouldn't that be an interesting comparison.. 😉

These are some pics of the last grow I ran with it... some of my 'Mystery Autos' - I think they're a mix of Critical Mass, Amnesia Haze and White Widow but I can't be sure. I'd say the light works pretty well - pretty nice trichome development and nice dense flowers.

@templegrower Awesome awesome! Our old reflector 144 really did a great job! It's best time to purchase a SP250 light, we are now doing 420 promotion. 3 days from 4/20 to 4/22.
