We get asked a lot about the differences of the Pro kits and the Type R kits, obviously the most standout difference is the inclusion of the reds both deep and far red on the Type R variant. But how does this effect the output of the light and spectrum and what do these differences mean on a practical level? 

Well hopefully we can answer some of these questions here and give you further insight into the differences between the ISH150 PRO and Type R variants. 

The ISH150 PRO consists of 288 x Samsung lm301h cri80 3500k leds _ 48v board 

The ISH150 TYPE R consists of 256 x Samsung lm301h cri80 3500k / 8 x Samsung lh351h deep red 660nm and 8 x Samsung lh351h far red 730nm - 56v board 

Watch the videos below to get an understanding of the spectrum test for both the ISH150 PRO & TYPE R while also getting a direct comparison between the two.

As you can see by the results the type R range has additional peaks at 660nm and 730nm while also having a higher overall ppfd value. 

Benefits of using the Type R over the Pro range would be the triggering of an increased metabolism, this can show itself in additional stretch, faster flowering cycle/early harvest and a bigger swell in the final weeks. 

Advantages of the Pro range include less stretch for confined spaces, tighter internodes, density and efficiency.

TBF mate, I really don't know how you can do better than this ISH 480. Checked on these girls today as was like wow! This light is amazing! 

Is it possible to add Rstrips to this model?

I have heard great things about the deep/far red spectrum.  Not too familiar with your product (Canada) but seen what reds can do (YouTube grow vids, mr caunk with Electric Sky in particular).

Leaves me torn between lights.  I can pick up a budget friendly QB LED for $400 all in but will it meet my expectations?  Or is spending significantly more now worth the investment long term?

I'm not saying my next light will be my last light I buy but want to get as close to it as I can (medicine grows on trees, not money... well... lol).  Definitely dont want to be in the same situation $400 poorer.

Any input would help ?

Depending on the supplier it may be worth going local to yourself,  if the units they sell are imported from china then I would strongly suggest to keep looking.  There is a high chance the leds are fake or cast offs sold cheap to manufacturers. If they can prove they buy the LEDs in your country then id be happy purchasing from them. 

I think the motto really is if you buy cheap you buy twice. We get our leds direct from the UK Samsung agent so we can guarantee the legitimacy of them.  

I would also avoid anything that includes UV , its a fad at the moment an the boards iv seen coming from china including uv almost all die very quickly, UV isn't stable enough to bother with right now an certainly not in the same circuit as the whites. 

If you want any advice on a light from ourselves let me know

2ft x 4ft x 5ft height is perfect for either the ISH265 or ISH265 XL being the optimal option. Iv included links, an its free shipping to the states an Canada currently

Think you sold me on the ish265xl!  It's a little more money but if macky recommends you guys I know its quality.

Wallet took a beating over the holidays so it will probably be a week or two (or 3) before I purchase but you've made it to the top of the list!

What does assembly mean?

Just a few wires, and the frame mate, nothing major. Mine came ready made, but it doesn't look difficult to assembles if it came packaged. 

I'm well impressed with the lights man. My plants have never been happier! And buds have never been denser lol. Epic lights mate, your going to love it

hey. well that's good to hear. you won't be disappointed. 

 

Assembly means the light is shipped fully wired and working. These are diy lighting kits and require some wiring of a power cable into the power supply and to the led boards  

Sounds complicated but its not . if you can wire a plug then youll be fine. 

If not then choose assembly an it will be ready to plug into the wall when it arrives
