What are the best LEDs these days. I've been using the v2 of the HLG Samsung diodes that I bought about 2 years ago...Wondering how far lights have come since then.
With the V2 and V1s that I have I always seem to get some kind of deficiency with certain strains which I ascribe to the light intensity. Giving calmag does fix it but then I always seem to burn them. I can reduce the intensity but then I get less bud. I wonder if I would have these problems with the v3s.The V3
Here is a list of a ton of popular lights the guy from Migro has reviewed. They are listed from most effecient over 3 years to least

Builds are the best way to go but a lot of people aren't that smart.Some of the asking prices of these new High End LEDs are kind of crazy. Like the new 600w chilled light is $2500 US. Unless your electricity price is .50c a k/w like in some places I don't see a ROI.
4 out of 5 of my lights are my builds.
This is my newest one 665w
Even I, who is completely incompetant in constructing things was capable of using some 3/4" angle aluminum and these QB 120 v2 boards with some eye-bolts as he says. Very easy and there are people here who will help you.grow lights canada has a great deal on boards...they work well.
a piece of angle aluminum and you can drill holes and mount them with the eye hooks.
Its a kit but its easy to put together.

Hey thanks for the rec! These look nice. I want to compare the ppfd chart to the 600H. I spent so much money on the HLGs and these are pretty costly too but looks like you can do a payment plan. Neat.Chilled tec are on top, ask ledgardener on youtube he tested them.
