Hi again Echo mate lol

id have a look at migro led. Just bought out a 270w for a 1m tent.

my array 2x 240’s are potent!!! 
Outperform hps significantly.

other good leds others can recommend  from their experiences, but I would definitely go for modern recommended leds over hps. Unless you just can’t afford any more than hps.

Time to pop some more beans 😗

HPS are the tried and tested route, guaranteed results so I see where your mate is coming from but LED is taking the lead...the ISH range from Invisible Sun produce some amazing plants, just ask Macky 😉

Never used anything but a TSW2000, LED wise and have a 630w CMH which I love with a passion...however, I use the TSW as a vegging light, have done a couple of autos under it but not had brilliant results tbh...maybe its just me, lol

@echo I can recommend them as a light and as a company- top class

others may be able to recommend some good competition then you can decide ! 
I hear good things about Mars hydro, and some not so good but I haven’t used em so don’t know. 
I’ve also heard good things about hlg but difficult to get in uk.. 
I just go by what Shane reviews (honestly I believe). Also worth checking out is Dr Coco’s website which reviews leds and has a testing function which allows you to check any lights performance and value for money that you are considering

happy shopping

@echo, You can get good results with many different lights. I have a beautiful 1000 MH that I purchased 30 years ago that I can't get rid of and I can't use. The light is great air cooled, sealed glass, it nice and it hot and it's expensive to run. So it's a learning curve. The LED are great but they take some getting use to. With a MH you know when your frying shit, with an LED it like a Ray Gun it just vaporizes it. No. But they are very intense and take some getting use to because they not hot. Make sure to get plenty of info cause as you know they ain't cheap. My opinion, wide spectrum, quantum board, top manufactures. $$$$  Done deal. Mine are rated for 10 yrs veg. I'll C.
