    I can replace a 1000w HPS for less than $800 with LED.

    built yourself or bought? Would it cover the same area or would you need two?

    Either way $800 is a far cry from $60 and is close to "around a grand"

    The OP is in the Ukraine (its even in the title)..Grows Massive buds. Has initiative and smarts. And does really well expressing himself on an English language forum.

    @Sedan said he's getting his 400W and 600W HPS lamps from a greenhouse that I gather went bankrupt. He uses one of each in the silo and pulls some amazing numbers.

    He's also an engineer (civil?) who isn't working because of the ongoing conflict wrecking the economy in his country.

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for his ingenuity and perseverance in the face of incredibly adverse circumstances- on the barest of shoestring budgets and all this with an amazingly positive attitude.

    Don't feed the troll. He's already proven that he'd lose a battle of wits with a box of rocks.

    Built myself, 9 COBs, could cover a 4'x4' area. I just haven't done the math for matching a 600w HPS. It would be much cheaper than $800 though. $60 is ludicrous.

    I overlooked the "pre-built" part of your post, my bad. Yeah about a grand. I personally wouldn't purchase pre-built units just yet. Too much savings from building it yourself.

    In stead of using 1000W HPS, one can use four 250W Bars with COBs in the center. In a north south west east formation.

    This doesn't improve the space efficiency equation. A flat panel does.

    I don't see why not, everything stays the same, it's just the light source that changes from a point source to four "beams"
    The efficiency of this system is mostly gained from the reflective tent being right behind the plants.

    It's still a tight fit to work on the plants.

    Yep, you will need to use the version of the tube that opens up like a book on castor wheels as I suggested previously.

    So why not just have it flat? More room to work on the plants, no pie wedge effect, fits in square rooms better...

    In other words, what problem does the round silo solve, once you aren't using a 360 degree light source? Having done this for years, my answer to that question was 'none'. The only reason for the round silo was the nature of the light emission from the lamp. Once I switched to directional LED lighting the reason to keep that shape went away.
