    I have 2 of em, very good lights. I run one light per plant. Fine for novices and will see you thru many successful grows
    Did have a cheap chinese copy for a while, replaced that with my 2nd HLG QB from vivid after a grow and a half.

    It used to be HLG were the numero uno but other brands are starting to catch up and surpass them in terms of efficacy. Altho I do believe HLG have a new LED due soon that could push em back to the top

    Mars have upped their game with the TS range and are a very good alternative for a lower budget

    Never lose site of the fact that the Mars Rep was banned from here for leaking an Admins personal details!

    Then, of course, there was their total failure to support their product when they realised they had faulty LEDs & they were burning out on their panels - Their solution? They would send you some LEDs that you could solder on yourself - or send the panel back & they would give you a 10% discount on a new panel!

    I honestly have no good words to say about Mars & am very glad they no longer a part of this forum.

    Didn't know about the leak, probably before my time started here.

    You certainly wont regret the extra for HLG, as I say they are fantastic. My last 2 plants, Fast buds Purple Lemonade, pulled over a pound. I've more than grown my money back for the lights with just that one grow.
    VividLED will look after you.

    Awesome light, mate. You won't look back.

    How big is your tent?

    Everyone is a novice the first time they use one, btw.

    It'll take you one grow cycle to fully appreciate it but then you'll be comfortable in cranking up the power and lowering the light. I would suggest you get a Lux meter (under £20) to keep an eye on things - again, I barely use mine now as I have a plan in my head of Watts to height, etc. but it will certainly help you understand the power and the implications of lowering or raising the height and lowering or raising the Watts.

    Try searching Hydrolab tents, mate. They have a LAB120-S which is 120cmx60cmx120cm - not massive height, but that QB will slot in there beautifully and not take up much space at all....exactly my set up.

    Easy to train the top of the plant down, ferdew...the QB will also help keep the plant quite stocky, too - stick with indica dominant autos and you'll be golden - plenty of space.

    You won’t be disappointed with the service or the products I can assure you
    Here’s my 288 it’s a double b spec with the qb18’s fitted, I don’t think you’ll get a better overall spectrum for the grow start to finish

    Here’s my 600h I got
    Which is a similar build with the uva30 fitted

    The uva strips not actually in this picture
    I’ll be adding another 288 plus far red initiator to both tents these are in!
    I’ll be documenting a bit more on the qb18’s 288 in my diary as soon as I get a new temp/hygrometer in the room.
    My mates testing my 600 as we speak because he’s got stuff flowering and can put it to the test, plus it’ll get me some free bud an all

    Don't analyse it too much. Just think about what you can afford, add on £100 and buy that.
