    Default Mars Hydro Ts3000 or Bava green 480w ?

    Well , after having a good look online and looking at review sites etc... I've come up with a short list of the 2 lamps, I want something powerful but for under £400 that would be suitable for a max 1.2 x 1.2.

    Both have dimmers and the bava has the added ability to swith off colour spectrums for veg / bloom.
    There is a lot more info on the mars hydro , although a lot of it is negative due to their crappy earlier models.
    Has anyone used the TS3000 or the Bava green?
    For the bava, I was able to look at a couple of YouTube videos and thees were a couple of reviews left. It was originally a 2019 model with the new model now using the Samsung LM301H chips.

    If anyone has any info or past experience with either I would appreciate any input.
    Cheers.

    How about this one bud?
    I ordered 2 of these direct from alibaba just waiting for them to arrive now,Amazon sells them also and they look pretty comparable to the vivint 260w panels,it cost me $400cnd to buy 2 with shipping so it would be well below 400 quid for you for 2.

    The light come in 2 parts, a bonus is that the master unit can work by itself (240w) or with the second unit. Both are mounted onto steel brackets and the distance between the 2 is adjustable so enabling a bigger spread.
    Dimmer, and also the option to turn off certain leds.
    This is incredibly bright.
    I will start off with a single unit and as the plants grow will add the second.
    A nice solid light.
