    Overpriced blurple junk, IMO. Get some Samsung or Bridgelux LED strips in 3500K and put together your own lights.

    Second time I have looked at them though someone posting a link. Neither time have I been able to find wattage from the "in depth product details". There isn't even a single bit of useful info on the whole page.

    Lots of options though as like Mr higgs suggested.

    Take peoples advice here and get some new tech but if you arent gonna, stay away from the blurples. 2.5 years ago I paid full price for 2 overpriced blurple lights and they will grow flower but not what the newer lights can grow. If you are considering blurples just use regular screw in led 100 watt equiv light bulbs there are some usable 5 socket bulb fixtures on amazon for like 12 bucks each. Those lights are as good as the blurples and if one goes out you unscrew it and screw in a new one. Ive used both blurple and regular light bulbs and the results are about the same for me.

    Great thank you. Looks like I have some research to do on these.
    I have the QB 120, and love it. Just didn’t know if it would cover a low 20”x48” area that’s why I was looking at the bar option but I suppose if I did 2 or 3 it would all be covered.

    I checked them out because they advertise here, I was looking for long low lighting and saw the ad. Couldn’t find any useful info on the page, which is a bad sign, so thought I’d ask here. Thanks!

    yeah Kind led sucks....................with your very limited height I would add more QB boards no question(dimmable driver(s) would be optimal with that head room), use heavy leaning indicas and do 12/12 from the start

    good luck grower

    I honestly didn't realise they advertised on here. Just goes to show I have selective eye sight. :eyesmoke:

    HLG-240h-48 would be a good driver
    running 5 or 6 of the EB strips you linked.
    $160 for the driver and Strips shipped from Arrow.
    Im a major noob though so hopefully someone else chimes in.

    Why should anybody take a chance on such scant information....Just saying. I want to promote good LED's, but the #'s are everything and you STILL don't want to play......:peace:

    I would recommend one of the following. I have a 24x48 tent that I use with the 260W xl quantum board. It works very well for that size, the 320 would probably be a little better though.

    You might be able to do ok with these strips I see some people recommending, but the strip grows I've seen lately in these forums are crap with plants 6 times taller than they should stretching for light. If a fly were to land on the top leaf they would probably fall over. They don't leave me impressed.
