I would buy 2x COBs for that money. And when you have more money you can add another COBs.

That one says 228 watts. Nothing fancy but really cheap. Can do a 2x2 ,2x3,2x2.5
Actually a 250w hps will be better but may cost more.

Lookout for white light COBs. They are pretty efficient but cost more.

I agree with the cob recommendations. The epistsr LEDs do not save you anything compared to hps. Only efficient LEDs will save heat and electricity. Epistsr is not efficient.

It should be fine for 1 plant and maybe a little stretched for 2 ... assuming you're a new grower start w/ 2 in 4 gal pots until you get the hang of growing and then grow one big plant per grow ... actual wattage is about right for 5 sq ft. so stick w/ 2x2 or 2x3 for your tent ... I know I could grow a nice 4-6 oz plant w/ that light so I think you can to w/ a little practice ... if you're buying a tent try to get one at least 5' tall ... good luck w/ your grows ...
