    That tent isn't full dude. I've had different types of blurples, never again.

    For &138
    Just so you know, Thise lights stating Cree cob usually either provides fake Cree or very bottom bin.
    Browsing through Amazon to find that light there is so many bunk fixtures for so cheap. It's almost tempting to buy one of them. Even people that know it's a waste like me still prob somehow want to believe they can get a 205w top-bin Cree fixture for 138 buckaroos. Even better, it's got enhancement colors.
    I mean why buy a quality light when you can get the E-Bay special.
    Guess it's better then buying shop lights @ the Depot. Idk, those shop lights are pretty versatile. I use the UtilityTech 4k ones.
    Good luck! I hope you can get a grow or 2 off w/ it before it shits the bed. When it does, maybe consider buying good cobs & diodes to replace the existing. It's a nice looking case & that diode layout will allow you to make a pretty nice fixture.
    It's deff worth $138 just for the case alone.
    I'd strip it down, make side-lights out of the LEDs & replace them in the fixture w/ good diodes & cobs.

    Well since u have never used this light, watch for my future posts of results. I'm sure it'll prove you wrong, but your telling me an opinion based on the fact that youve never used the light, but its garbage bc its 50$ less than a 135watt quantum board or the bloombeast a520, I will be doing a side by side grow in my 2x4 this summer, the cheap 138$ light and I will be purchasing either a bloombeast 520 or the 135watt quantum board and getting some REAL results and answers. Ill post my results with the meizhi 600 as well, to see how it compares.

    Your results will be the same as all of ours you would be better off getting 1 good light for 300. But everyone has to learn for themselves good luck!

    You'll do good w/ tha light, I'm sure. Not gonna totally let you down like some of these burped. Prob gotta bomb spectrum. Just won't yield as much as you could due to lack of higher efficiency levels.
    Not hating bud. Just buyer beware that your not getting the same Cree chips you hear everyone ranting on about in praise. Nor the driver or heat dissipation. But you'll get the spectrum, footprint & im sure something else positive.
    Pls do update me though. Always love to hear growers feedback on anything.
    GoodLuck. It just funny sometimes when poeple come here asking about what $200 e-bay light to buy. Your guess is as good as any of ours that have studied LEDs. They're all in the same category.

    I might know a thing or 2 about side by sides. Tell me more? image.jpg

    The light I ordered is literally band new to Amazon guy said I'm getting some of the first, and I prefer multiple lights to spread coverage, if I like this light ill buy 2 more.

    Honestly the meizhi 600 isn't letting me down, my plants are healthy, but I know it lacks in the reds. This is my first grow and I'm 3 weeks in to budding and I have 3 plants all under 17 inches tall and its looking like ill probably end up with 4 or 5oz which for 135$ light is alright with me. If I get a better yield under the new light ill definately invest in a cf cob probably, something American. I really wanna do a side by side with a 135watt quantum board.

    The diodes aren't new it doesn't matter when the fancy case was made.

    They are just trying to replicate this using old, bottom bin chips. image.jpg
    It was new in "14".

    Try comparing your Mezhia to an efficient cob light. The only differences you'll see when comparing to your new knock off is what comes w/ the spectrum. Which will most likely be decent & noticeable. But if you want to see the full benefits of using a quality cob or any chip built light you won't see them comparing those knock offs.
    So, if you were willing to just cut to the chase, buy a decent light & get it over w/, then & only then will you be able to experience the true difference that you hear growers on this site & others talking about.
    You'll yield more because higher yields come w/ higher efficiency & you'll grow nicer buds using a proven spectrum Edit: or at least one that makes sense. I thought the HH light had a nice & unique spectrum based on what I had learned mostly through reading false adds & studies of vegetables for led lights at the time. They were using a phosphor or whatever to deliver their full spectrum from each diode or cob rather than multi colored diodes. The tech they were using sounded cool. And they charged allot. Terrible comp. too btw.
    IDK what Meziah was thinking w/ that spectrum. How do they expect one to flower?
    First thing I did when buying my first led was buy 2 different ones. A Burple & an enhanced white that bothe cost about the same & did a side by side. The Burple light was an $800 ProGrowX5-500 (535w) by Hydroponics Hut. The other was an Amare SE-450 (450w) & costed me $900.
    Each light had 3, GG#4's under it in a 4'x4'. The Amare yeilded 18oz of bag meat, 21oz total while the HH gave me 7oz of barely baggable n 9 total. The buds wouldn't even form.
    Comparing is important but you gotta have something you already know is the standard to compare to. So either HPS or an led that's proven.

    meizhi 900w is also good, nice cheap choice! meizhi seller said they have upgraded the spectrum and added more red lights, I will try the upgraded meizhi 900w when I have enough money:bigjoint:

    That cob for 138 I have coming was also free to me. I've been looking at mars pro 2 lights recently theyre claiming 2gr/watt. Or a g8 450. I'd love a g8

    Your canopy is so empty is that like 3 weeks in flower? I've used g8 bought 3 of them...complete waste of money sold 2 for less than half price the 3rd broke within 6 months so I replaced the driver and the led with a quantum board saved 50w for twice the growth. When you try some new stuff you will feel stupid for arguing for blurple led.

    I'm not arguing for them, but I'm trying to show people that even though some people call them garbage you can still get enough good bud to keep ya stoned for a few months in my case.

    You could do the same with cfl for less money than your led.
