    greengrace,
    Welcome to 420! If there is any information you need about growing with LEDs there are several of us here using them. Check out some of my journals as well as Jozo-sha's, Magic Bean's, Maer's and several others.

    Re: Stevehman's LED buyer's guide

    thanks Bassman59 at least i'd recoup some of the money, even at half price that would go a long way towards getting some 3 watt panels. thinking about getting the diamond series from advanced. my electric company says i use more power than 100 nieghbors, those smart meters are scary.i was running 3 400w hids.

    i'm going to join the led revolution.

    "Your welcome. Do I get a bulk discount?"

    "The floor furnace at one end of the house went out so we installed baseboard heaters."

    "Yeah, I know. 89 of those 100 neighbors are out of work and the other 11 work at Welfare*Mart."

    "We're stockpiling it in case we have a power failure."

    "Rotating stripper poles and strobe lights use a lot of electricity."

    "You're telling me! I wish I'd known before I bought that Panasonic 152" Quad-HD Plasma television. On the other hand... Thanks to it, we haven't had to turn the furnace on once this year."

    "I told those pesky kids not to keep opening the refrigerator door every few minutes."

    "We heard CFLs had mercury in them, so we traded with our 100 neighbors for their incandescent bulbs."

    "Man cave. 'nuff said."

    "Multiple redundant power supplies, three 1.5 gig video cards, three 42" monitors, seven speakers, two subwoofers and an extreme water-cooling setup... But our teenage son no longer goes out and murders hookers and middle-aged nosy utility company receptionists on the weekend out of boredom. I'd say it's a bargain... wouldn't you?"

    Re: Stevehman's LED buyer's guide

    Plan on buying 3x DS200's for 2 waterfarmed scrog plants in a 5x5 tent. Want a replacement for 600watt hid, ie same yield. Let me know of your opinion I've followed all your grows and it seems you prefer multiple small watt's VS a single large light.

    Yep - multiple smaller wattages have the benefit of spill over lighting; for example, in my tent (a 3x5 roughly), I have 2 x 300's over each half of the tent, any plants in the middle of the tent get spill over from…ah shit…I'm too high to explain this right now, LOL.

    Haha I hear ya, I got what you were saying. I placed order this morning and from mentioning this thread got free shipping. He talked me into 2x200w for a 5x5ft tent growing 2 plants on a 2.5x2.5ft scrog screen.

    Wondering how you can get even light distribution in a square tent with two panels. Are you going to add a Light Rail?

    It won't be even, but remember it's only a 5x5 and both lights have a coverage area of 2.5ft x 3ft.
