We want to thank RIU for the opportunity to be an advertiser on these forums by giving back to this community. So we decided to host a friendly competition that will give several of you the opportunity to test our latest Penetrator X3 LED Grow Lights free of charge. Competition 1: Side-by-Side LED vs LED Grow Test At the top of this post is a Poll. We need your votes to determine which LED competitor you most want to see our Penetrator lights compared against. After 7 days the top 2 competitors with the most votes will be announced. Within 3 days after the announcement anyone who owns a light from the top 2 competitors can submit their name to win a light to be used exclusively in a side-by-side test against that competitor. We will then announce a new poll where forum members get to vote on which of you they want to see perform the test. Competition 2: Side-by-Side LED vs HID Grow Test While we have decimated HID since our inception, it never gets old seeing it done again and again. So for all you die-hard HID fans who are still skeptical of LED grow lights, this test is for you! Submit your name in a reply to this post, the phrase "LED vs HID" and the brand/wattage of fixture you wish to use. After 7 days we will announce a new poll where forum members get to vote on which of you they want to see perform the test. Competition 3: LED Micro Grow Our lights have always been about maximum yield and quality, and micro grows have always been one of the best means to showcase this. If you currently have a micro cabinet or space and want to test our Penetrator LEDs in it, submit your name in a reply to this post with the phrase "Micro Grow", and tell us the dimensions of your space. After 7 days we will announce a new poll where forum members get to vote on which of you they want to see perform the test. Whether you want to be an applicant or are just passing through, we encourage everyone to take part in this competition. We need your votes on members and opinions on which LED competitor you want to see us compared against! Thank you again to RIU and all its members! The requirements of these giveaways is as follows: Recipient of test light will perform a peer-reviewed, unbiased and scientific grow test on RIU The grow test must begin within 2 weeks of receiving your test light At least once per week you will upload at least 7 high resolution photos and a progress report to your grow test thread on RIU Side-by-side tests will have each light in it's own space wherein light from other areas does not enter. Side-by-sides will require clones from the same mother plant. After veg the healthiest 2/3 of the plants from each group will be used to carry out the bloom test. Side-by-sides will test an equal number of plants in an identical sized area with all other variables as close to the same as possible (temp, humidity, pH, etc...) unless otherwise instructed. Any changes to these requirements must have written approval from HydroGrowLED Growers who follow the requirements and complete their tests accordingly will be awarded the LED test light as a gift after the competition. If the requirements are not met, the grower must return the light within 2 weeks of their completion or failure of their grow test.
