If you guys are interested in the Samsung strip lights, you should reach out to @Graytail . I know he uses them and has all the information on them. I am sure he will be glad to share his wealth of lighting knowledge.

Guy has been kind of MIA for about a month or two. I am going to email him and see how he is doing.

Where can I get those Samsung strips. I was looking at buying the SPYDRx+ But if there is something better for a little cheaper I think that is the way to go

It's been a while since I was last in here so I was surprised to see a recent post about the Samsungs. It's also been a long time since I built my lights, but I got mine from Rapids. I still have 8 strips in the box that I haven't even opened! Not sure what the hell I was thinking I need more fore. LOL.

Care to talk about your set up Rider? I am getting ready to expand into a 10'x10' and am getting a second Spydrx Plus on a mover but I am also possibly interested in trying this Samsung type thing as a replacement in the 4x4. I am not looking for a shit ton of watts for it as it will be the veg tent to the 10x10's flower. I am looking for something possibly up to 300-400 watts max. Thanks in advance man!

I am currently building a 16x12 grow shed so I have been doing lots of research. I grow in under current. I have used LEDs before. Looking to buy the spydrx. But I am always interested in other options. I will do a journal on my build once I get rolling.

Riders Samsung strips were bar none the best strip out there when he built his lights about a year ago. The chip technology is moving so fast that currently the HLG-QB288 PCB's are riding the crest of the LED wave. I'm sure they'll be replaced with something else soon enough.

No, actually a bit worried. I sent him an email over a week ago (real email, not PM on here) and haven't heard anything back from him. Gonna send another one...maybe he likes to be poked.

Im thinking about getting a spiderx plus for my next grow.... do you think I would need more then 1 in a 4x4 flower tent?

Ps and would you think 4 spiderx plus would be anough in a 10x10?

I would run 2 Spydrx Plus on movers instead of 4 of them. I don't think you need 4 of them. You might suffer a touch on the yield over having 4 of them, but you will save yourself 3k bucks.

You can only fit one of them in a 4x4....their footprint is just about 40"x40"

Okay but it would still be better 4 in a 10x10 right?

And do they really pull the watts that the specs say?

yeah they pull a legit 660 watts.

4 would be better if you can afford it. For me the power costs aren't worth the increase in yields.

Yeah I get you... I’m working on something big and I’m trying to go with the less electricity possible but with the max yield possible... So far a spydrx plus is the closes to a HID light in my researchs... but again thank for the info Mr stank!
