      What? I just bought the spider-farmer but mars, viparspectra and HLG all make quantum boards. There are slight differences in the specs and components but all of them seem to land in the same neighborhood. After those, you jump up a few hundred dollars in price, or as us old folks say, two HPS systems.

          TBH, I wasn't familiar with that light but I looked it up and like what I see. Granted there is "binning" which essentially is different levels of quality control on components, but it uses the same Samsung led as the Spider Farmer and HLG quantum boards, as well as the same Meanwell driver.

          The 3500k spectrum should be good veg and flower. The specs they list for umol/j and PAR measurements are impressive, but all companies slightly inflate that. The thing that is really handy is the dimmer. What size footprint are you trying to cover with this?

          It likely won't perform as well as the 600w HPS, but it may give your garden more even light coverage. With it's narrow footprint, it would definitely add a boost to the flower room side by side with the HPS. Cheers!

                Is getting the Mars FC imported much cheaper than sourcing a Lumatek Zeus 600w? Have you looked into the Grower's Choice ROI-E680? I think it would also have to be imported but it's a little cheaper than the FC here and looks just as nice with a bit more power if you ever wanted it.

                For what it's worth, I began upgrading HPS reflectors last year to the Secret Jardin Daisy 100cm parabolic reflector and was very pleased with the light and heat spread. It's a bitch to get them in the states but they're easy to get in Europe. I think my last 2 came from Leicester. I have to pay more to import them then I have to buy new cables and rewire them but it's still worth it. It's a cheap but considerable upgrade, these are my absolute favorite HPS reflectors.

                        I use 120cm x 120cm tents and 1 in each with a 600w HPS.

                        You're looking for a 200-300 watt light like the FC3000? Sorry about that, I was thinking you were looking at the big FC 6500 for some reason.

                      In truth man you should save some money and get one you know you will be happy with. I know I have talked with you on leds. Another idea depending on their shipping and your credit you can finance the same light I have at 150$ a month. https://aventuron.com/
                      I have also seen some places that will do the same with HLG lights.

                        Well i just want to thank all of you who gave me suggestions on light replacements. I would pull the trigger and buy one but i've got something in the works going and going to wait till i hear back from Vipar. But there are deals left and right going. LED good manufactures will replace the light if it breaks. Shit man just buy a light keep the box and paperwork and getting growing for lords sake. Give me your wallet i get you one yesterday

                            It's going really well like I said in the thread I currently have them under a smaller light. Dont need 750w draw for young veg. But the sales manager from kind called me the other night to let me know the controllers came In and one will be shipped out this week. Once I get that I'll move them under the new light.
