    Theres already a thread on it on riu
    https://www.rollitup.org/t/new-grow-northern-light.947004/
    Personally: i think its a light that sacrifices a bit in efficiency, just under 2umols/w when qbs/true samsung boards is ususally +2.4 but has a few nice features that might compensate: nice spectrum, kickass optics for very even spread.
    Kinda depends what you want to use it for. Alot of growers on autoflower.net uses previous editions of gn-lights for auto grows with great success, check out tangs grows. Maybe less intense but on point delivery is more important when you run the lights 20h per cycle.
    But if you want to run light hungry sativas on a 10-14 cycle this is probably not the light for you, or maybe 2 instead of one. In that case

    , Is a good alternative if youre into diy, check out the quantumboard thread if not familiar, should be similar.

    Ive never seen any comments about bad quality in grownortherns lights, only that previous lights where very expensive for low watts. Id buy the light for a smaller tent, or 2 for 3x3-3x4.
    If you get it be sure you log your grow here very interested in hownit does.

    Looks OK for a 2x2 (60x60 cm) space. Efficiency is not great, but not terrible either. Don't see a price anywhere....

    Strange, could swear i saw it at around 385€ at their web but now it says q1-2018 so probably not stocked. To me thats a good price.
    2x2 gives a ppfd of 1100 aprox, a bit on the high side.
    Id say maybe even a 3x2 (ppfd 750ish) but really i think its more a matter of buying the lights and see what it covers at light levels youre comfortable with. The optics and spectrum are what interests me the most. Optics look narrow but very even so i think you wont have very much wall losses or hotspots. Very good at directing the light at your plants, or if you are in an open space.
    Previous lights from this company have been very loved by most owners (even at much higher price point but generally autogrowers) but had bad on-paper specs.
    Maybe the specialized spectrum also gives it an extra kick.



    Im guessing that this will be a light you either love or hate. Would love to see it grow.

    I've certainly seen more ridiculous prices for lights, at least its under $2 per watt.

    Seems pretty expensive.And you still have to wire with wago.So almost like a semi assembled diy kit you can purchase for much cheaper price.But choice is yours :bigjoint:

    you need to plug driver to AC-plug. I am sure you can save money with semi DIY kit. Cob already mounted on heatsink, maybe you have to plug few cable more(even my girlfriend that is super noob was able to do it).
    EDIT
    200watt for 316€ (£280) is really expensive.
    You can get 2 board for 160€ and hlg 240 driver for 74€. 250watt of Light more efficient

    I dont know..maybe I just buy those two single cobs, add my cob and put three girls under them..One for each..

    3 girls on 160w sound nice to me.. If I pull 1gw I'm happy-We are talking autos..

    Id go for the cobs before the china lights, unless you actually seen these lights grow IRL. But the boards, on low wattage with no heatsink just a bit of airmovement, would be my first choice. The only diy you have to do is to connect cables in wagos, and heatshrink the connections. The supplier looks legit, answered pretty much everything i asked, and theyve been tested out by g84.
