@shirley-boi hi mate

i had a similar viper spectre (maybe same even).

It draws 200w and will do a not great job for you as it is not a very efficient light imo 

i used mine for seedlings in the end and early veg.

there are much better lights out their nowadays so I’d advise hold off for something better ...  even at a budget 

Sorry maybe not what you wanted to hear bro but hard earned cash can only be spent once if ya get me 

Maybe others can advise on a good budget led that will out perform that one easily 

If your tent is 1m x 1m then it def won’t be enough to do the business 

 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

They will work but I’d have to add that many growers are moving away from the “blurple” lights to the more sunlight like spectrum led’s with better results. This light also produce a lot of heat that will need to be dealt with, not near as much as HPS but more than the newer fan-less more current lights. The cooling fans also make some audible noise, this might or might not be a problem depending on your situation. Lastly, it sounds like this is a used light and I can buy that light brand new for that money, used should be half that price imo. This is only my opinion mind you, but I’d pass or negotiate a much better price.

Just a note, even though that light is called a 450w it is actually a 200 watt light, which is generally enough for 2 plants if it can give the proper coverage.

Random acts of kindness make the world a better place

@woolieback ha haa loves it !!!... yea see i knew to check with u guys first. He did a crop last year n he said that the crop wasnt that good. So i thought id ask to see if it was a good buy or not. But im glad ive asked now tho. What do u think is the best option for a little grow of 2 autos in a 1×1×2. Like chilburt said id like to just spend the cash on 1 good light rather than keep buying cheap little lights that do nothing

I am currently using 2 Mars Hydro lights, a TS3000 and a TSL2000. Apart from the fact that the dimming function on the TS3000 doesn't seem to work, they certainly do as @woolieback says, get the job done.

Given the choice again, think I should have gone with the Migro units, as I believe I could achieve a better spread of light with that array concept.

That said I can't get any further than the "your location Country" query on the Migro website, so perhaps I'm fated never to own one ☹

Time to grow old disgracefully.
