I'd dearly love feedback on other kinds of tents, Secret Jardin, Grow Lab, or Sun Hut.
I'm looking at 2 basic sizes 4x4 and 2.5x5 (3x5) and have an air cooled 600W light that dials down to 350W or up to 630W. I'm on the fence right now to return this tent and the 4"CFM fan with filter, or to exchange it. The tent was not 100% light tight. Had light out the bottom zippers and pin holes. Do they all have this? I'm so frustrated with BGH.... ripped tent, smashed duct hose, and scope with light that won't stay on, all in one order.. grrrrrr . The advantage to the wider tent is that I don't have to leave a wall free to get to my back plants... I think. (plz share this info too!) Since I have the ripped 4x4 set up, I can say that the plan was to leave one wall bare for getting in. This might take away the advantage of a few square feet extra in the 4x4. My back and knees are blown, bending over is not possible. I can still switch to a 400W light if need be, or dial my 600 Lumatek down.
Please, no debates on DIY. My health is too poor and those DIY days are long gone! No debates on lights either, beyond if I need to exchange this for a 400W dimable with the smaller tent.
Here's some of the info I am reading, not sure if I'd order from this place, but they have good info! Grow Tent Review - Greners.com
My local hydro shop matches online prices, but they sell only Sun Huts, thus why I look at these too.
I'll work on specific links to tents after posting this to start. TY for the advice! I've had enough bad luck in the last 6 months to last me a life time. :-(
