    I would disagree but to each their own.
    What size space are you thinking of growing in?

    For cheap l.e.d I can attest to the performance of viparspectra. But I'm running 70+ watts per square ft... If you can afford it i'd go with cobs or qb.

    the words "budget" and "led" should not be used in the same sentance

    Are all Led's made crappy or is it just mars? Possible you just had a bad experience and have a bad taste in your mouth from it. Surely they all can't be bad...

    the cheapo blurple led lights use small diodes,, like 3 or 5 watts,, and just put allot of them on a board,, the diodes are inexpensive and they use cheapo drivers to boot,, usually several smaller ones,, then they have to put allot of fans inside to try and keep it cool,, and more of your power goes to heat than light,, and nah bro, ,i like others got into cobs and know our stuff

    Thanks buddy.I will check it out.I can't afford quality cob or qb at the moment,so I'd go for good budget LED now.
