    Sold out again. I was truly in your corner and waited, yet again, to be able to order some boards. This is the fourth time that I have tried to do so and can no longer wait to take care of my situation. I wish you guys the best of luck but I am tired of losing in your board lotto and so I will go the CoB route, because at least I can actually order and receive those. Some people will wait no matter how long for things, just look at the people that are willing to wait in line for Apple crap. To people like that I say, good on ya. My time is more valuable to me than waiting and spinning my wheels.

    @robincnn, lights have been on 10+ hours with the wiring you just listed. Is it really that easy? red/black from driver to + - of the boards mounted inversely and a small snippet of black wire on the bottom for two boards? The plants are prayin to it. On the lowest setting is only making like 50watts per driver?http://imgur.com/a/Z7Js9

    260W kit in 3000K will come with QB288, hard to find driver so these take longer
    260W kit in 2700K will come with QB304. These will ship sooner than 3000K

    Sorry not sure what kit. i assume 260W kit
    "50watts per driver" i assume you mean 50W per board

    Yes, wiring can get as complicated as you make it. This is the simplest wiring scheme for 260W kit. No wago was used. The 260W comes with a 3ft solid core wire and Wagos incase you need to use them

    I am not trying to start anything, Thai Baby. There may be 147 boards left but not in the 304, 3000k, People are all too willing to settle in today's society. I want what I want and if I can't get that I usually go without. If a food establishment does not have what I want, I do not order something else, I leave and go get what I want. My own personal choice and not for everyone. I don't want to settle on either the 288 or a different color spectrum. You and others may think that is OK but not for me. Again, I am not saying that I want anything but great success for HLG and I may try to order at a later date, but currently I need a new lighting solution and would just simply like it to be what I want to own, not what just happens to be in stock.

    Not trying to start anything either, your post implied the boards are totally sold out. There are still 288's in 3000k left. Any particular reason for wanting 304's? the 288's are slightly more efficient.

    A fair question. The honest answer is that I am new to Led. HLG has not updated their site with the promised list of drivers for the 288. The 304 has a complete list of compatible drivers. Knowing that those fine gentlemen at HLG are so busy fielding other's questions that I did not want to bother them with my ignorance.

    Got a big list of driver for 288. Hope this helps

    288 and 304 use same led, same bins
    304 is slightly better as it has 16 more diodes.
    Depends on design preference

    Well now. That is some impressive response time on that list of drivers. Either you were already compiling that list or you are the fastest person at typing in the world. Of course, there is the other option and that would be that you read my mind

    Yes, I realize the diodes are the same,and same bin. I thought the voltage bins were higher with 288's giving them a small advantage.

    Yes original we were doing all voltage bins. Buying diodes where ever we could find them.

    Things are more consistent now.
    Now we only get all same and Best bins. :mrgreen:
