    The Budmasters are a bit pricey to buy, but there's been no need for maintenance, no change of anything, no broken anything. It just works.

    My one single lamp has been the rock of my grows. I know that blurple is going out of fashion, however, I have had it about 3 years now, with the past year or so being in constant use.

    It has never missed a beat.

    The lamp keeps my plants squat, which is great given my limited space. I am interested in getting a "G.O.D." lamp from them at some point, all for the blurple LEDs and solid reliability.
    I know they work and they work well, a friend on a different forum lightaddict used them . They do have a life expectancy tho val , after around two years of use the par readings drastically drop. But the continues to work and is still bright as hell. I'm sure they use the osram ssl80 diodes and say you can't find them in other lamps which is a lie . This is my first time using led lights to grow in around 20years of growing and I'm impressed with my lights from invisible sun and was a complete hps addict. I've watched many a led grow using older tech and never been impressed and neither have the users , reluctantly admitted this after switching back to hps or cdm lights

    I used that driver and couldn't get over 200w so you've done very well indeed

    Gonna keep it plugged in to the meter for a few hours as it has risen since I did the alteration,it started at 207w and went up to 227w over the space of about an hour.
    It's nice to be nice.

    Hi Gardro. I was just looking at the G.O.D. 2 or 4, I am not in a rush personally though. It's just that mine (an XG, now discontinued) keeps my plants short but also translates into absolute unpredictability when the plant stretches, compared against others data from HPS.

    Thanks for the heads up, British Green, and your insight as well as experience with HPS/CDM. Considering heat, power, reliability etc I am sticking with LED, most likely with the same brand. For now the lamp is still good and if the PAR readings drop this year, great, I can use that for veg and get the G.O.D. for Bloom.

    Hi Valentina

    Can I ask if you've considered the Cropmaster series as from what I gather the GODs are being discontinued but still carry a price tag.

    Budmaster is now Cropmaster

    Those GOD lights are invariably high bay lights and many have said you have to hang them high.
