best led grow light for under 1.4k?

I was thinking about getting one Gavita Pro 1700e ,but everyone seems to use marshydro and kingbrite. Is Gavita worth the extra money?

What size area are you trying to cover?

If you want US-based company, HLG QB's or Timber COB's.

If you don't mind ordering from China, go with Kingbrite or Meijiu.

Meijiu makes a 1000w strip which is around $1k with shipping.

thinking about getting the 600, IS it easy to put together if I get the kit or should I just spend the extra 90$ and get it premade?
Yeah its very easy to put together, takes 5 min, about as complicated as wiring a plug.
I wouldn't pay for it to be assembled

For a 4x4, a big 600 or 550 either one will do just fine for bloom and veg. About half what your planning to spend.

I run a 550 in a 4x10 over 4 plants, I actually use about 4x5 of the tent. I get better than a pound.

With that budget you should look at the Chilled growcraft or Lumatek zeus.

If you want to spend less then HLG or Alibaba would be good options.
5 year warranty. Personally I would go with the Pink reproductive or type PKR it has high Red some blue and a little white/green. Not sold on the far red for anything but finishing.
