So here’s the deal.  When I got back into growing a few years ago, I was using 2 blurple lights each pulling 246w from the outlet, 492w in total.   I upgraded my lights and bought a Migro Aray 2Pro(about 125w) and a Viparspectra XS1000(about 100w) for a grand total of 225w from the outlet.  I thought the higher end LED’s would have compensated for the wattage but no.  My yields have been almost 1/2 of what I was pulling with the blurple.  I’m planning on buying a new light.  I was looking at the Mars Hydro TSW2000 which is 300w.   Anyone have thoughts on Mars Hydro or another light they can recommend.   My flower tent is 30”x30”.

@firetop95 I was looking at the HLG 350RSpec as well. It’s about $150 more than the Mars Hydro I was looking at with roughly the same wattage.

@growdad, I just went through this. I compared price to watts and wasn't brand loyal. I ended up with the SF-7000. It's not your 300 watts but I was looking for the most watts for the least amount of money. But that's what I did and it has the Samsung diodes and all the bells and whistles but not too high of a price. Hope this helps.       this is going in a 3x3, fyi

I would have loved to win one but I'm not too lucky and I'm in a bit of a HURRY. Gota run. 🖐️

@schroomy based on my research, I think the TSW2000 is my best bang for the buck.  I can get it on Amazon now for 229ish.  Most other 300w lights I’ve seen been in the 275+ range.  The reviews on the TSW2000 looked really positive as well.

A 30x30 inch tent? You shouldn't ever need 300w LED in that in my amateur opinion. But of course it has a dimmer and future scalability 👍
