Led vs HPS growing

I'm going to have to agree with you there. I get 18 ounces from my highest yielding tent under a 600 in a 4 x 4. This guy says he got 35 ounces from that right there. Makes you wonder. Here is one of my tents under a 600:

Nice wall to wall ginormous cola farm you've got there sir. You're doing better than I did back when I was rocking the 600 in my 4'x4' secret jardin. On my best harvest I hit about 14 oz and I was pretty darn happy with that. I definitely did not maximize my space the way you have though. Compliments on hitting 18 in there! Very nice work.

One would be hard pressed to get 4LBS with 2000W of hps. 3-3.5# with great genetics is workable. 4 is being a little overly optimistic. Maybe with 50 plants in a sea of green? I remember looking at this scam company called Black Dog that sells LED lights recently. They claim 3# per fixture in their item description. All you have to do is spend $2300 for their overpriced piece of shit LED light. They get rich quick selling garbage to morons who think 1 light is going to produce 3#. I laughed and I laughed. Then I laughed some more. Looking on Amazon Black Dog apparently sells their crap there too. The few reviews available had 1/4 or 1/3 of their board go dark in a very short period of time. Best wishes pulling 4# off of 1600W. You're gonna need a miracle. Not luck.
4LB with 2000W would be a breeze. I consistently grow 18-22 oz with a single 400W hps...

How are people still liking posts that are from a decade ago?
why are you still responding to these yokels trapped in time?
Get a life and learn how to grow, troll kids can't even handle nutrition right and are butthurt because the old-schoolers harvest more under HPS than their fancy 1500 bucks a piece cold light that'll save them 10 bucks a months on the e-bill. Ive seen the pics, not only here, some got even banned at another place for repeat infantile trolling...

LMAO :blsmoke: :wall: :P

simply not true. They aren't bad, but they aren't that great that they would "run rings around the other..." I have both HLG quantum board led's and traditional MH and HPS. Not much difference at all between the different methods.
So would you say you have to use the same amount of watts from LED to yield the same from HPS? Or would you be able to run the LED @ 500 watts and get the same results as a 600 watt HPS?

Would LED save you $$$?

I guess that depends on what our opinions are of blowing the other away. IMHO, the right LEDs have shown in case studies to increase thc and yield not a ton, but i thought it was impressive. Then you add in operating costs, cooling, and bulb replacement. Are all factors i consider and LEDs are far better. Granted, Im talking about high-end LEDs like California lightworks, Electric Sky, HLG etc. Not these cheaper one's
