Hey all hope everyone is well! 
I couldn't see a light section in the forum so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place!

Pretty much what the title says wanted some light recommendations I've been looking at this one here

removed link  

The seller seems reliable and i can find reviews on their other lights but not this one in particular really wondering if they are promising to much for the price?
Any info would be appreciated !
Thanks all and happy growing Smile

@gehenna that light claims 1000 watts and "says" it has Samsung diodes but all says it has epistar LEDs but does not state the ratio it could litrally have 1 Samsung diode and the rest epistar my advice dont cheap out on the light go with a trusted brand. Remember buy cheap by twice

As an alternative, MARS TSW(L) 2000s are awesome lights for budget, and you could get 3 L's for that price...approx 600w but better output, Samsung diodes and Meanwell drivers...never thought i'd say this but they are cracking lights for the price Smile

There can be more to this story. I feel compelled to add that I run 2 small tents, one tent has Samsung LEDs and the other has Epistar LEDs. You wouldn’t think it but the epistar LEDs out perform the Samsung on every run so far. The epistar light is a Mars SP series light and I’d gladly buy it again over the other one. I’ve run these lights for over 3 years now and they are still banging away like new. I’m not convinced that the light in the picture is good or bad but I’d avoid it because there are proven lights at that price in the market

Random acts of kindness make the world a better place

Epistar are quality too been around since 1996, before Samsung started making diodes, not a massive difference

@monkeydo shit I was always under the impression the mars sp series did have Samsung diodes just checked and yep Epistar LEDs I just associated them with the blurple lights from when I first start which used to underperform and left a bad taste in my mouth upgraded to the 301h diodes and more than doubled my yield for less wattage at the wall could of definitely been the light spectrum though everydays a learning day cheers monkey
