    I have used QB's and currently run AutoCobs. The QB's were stunting my plants. So you cannot best the adjustability of the AutoCobs. You could not take a single amount of my AutoCobs in exchange for anything else on the market. The hidden gems are the 6500 K AutoCobs too.

    I switched my entire grow over to AutoCobs after running them side by side with QB's and use to grow with HID's. I have 22 AutoCobs in my garden of that says anything. I have tested HID CMH COB of different brands and the QB's. The Auto Cons are the best lights I have had to date and each run my GPW goes up. My first ever grow with the AutoCobs my GPW was the highest ever and higher than any time using HID and CMH. Now mind you I am not saying you can't grow buds of high quality with any of these lights. I am saying that in my exp the AutoCobs are what work best and compared to HID my use of power (Watts) overall went down by about 50 % and my grows are better. Also I have never had terps and frost like this before. I also "believe" the Citizen Cons used have something different in their spectrum than Cree and part of the reason they perform better but I can't prove this. I have also made my own DIY Cobs in the past. Feel free to check my threads and ask any questions you'd like. Tough need to get feedback from as many sources as you can to make an informed decision but just be sure that feedback comes from people who have used any of the lights that interest you. There a lot of heresay on the internet and most of it is incorrect.

    How is a single cob unit more adjustable? Do you mean the height with a ratchet strap or the light intensity with a dimmer switch? I’ve got 4 timber citi’s @ 3500k - 200w & 1 QB’s @ 185w - 3000k with dimmers & ratchet straps & they both work equally well when set at the perfect height & intensity;) the only difference is the QB’s run cooler and cover better with the diodes being spread out . Plus it sucks moving 10 lights every time you tend your plants in a tight spot . It’s way easier for me to raise or lower one fixture & raise your plants to make an even spread imo QB’s rock !

    Have you run the AutoCobs? How did they compare to your COB's and the QB's?

    Thanks

    No I haven’t I’m a bit of a neat freak & all those cords in a 5x5 would get on my nerves, I know they work well from what I’ve read. This is my first in door grow . I got 2 train wrecks & a blue dream clone under the citis & 2 AVT flowering under the QB in a 5x5 closet . I haven’t used the lights independently yet , but they both are working great ! The QB was 200$ & the Timbers were 450$ and they both cover 2.5x 2.5 ft. And the nugs under the QB are very dense & frosty . I’m only using half of my space to grow as I have a small stool to sit & tend my plants & I hate being cramped with lots of clutter. I’d post pics but I don’t no how to hide my IP & sure as fuck I don’t trust the NSA or that water head Jeff sessions however you spell it lol . I know it’s easier to raise or lower one light then raise the plant , but I’m trying to keep my strains similar in size & keep everything even & it’s so far working well . I’ve grown outside my hole life so the plants aren’t new to me but the lights are , that’s why I got 2 kinds to play with & I’m happy with both . I’ve been using mega crop with great results & no cal mag problems:)

    I also like the low head space foot print the QB’s provide. The Timber is a 2ft sq. Frame & covers 2.5 x 2.5 sq ft. & the QB does the same at a much smaller size ! In hind sight I would have bought 4 QB’s on a large heat sink with 2 ratchet straps. I do realize this would be a big frame but two ratchet straps hooked to an 8 ft ceiling would be pretty easy to deal with for me ;)

    Nothing until my grow finishes...
    I was looking into the Migro myself and stopped when they said this in their information:

    LED components: Luminus, Lumiled or Bridgelux LED’s

    The simple fact that you do not know which you are getting...
    All 3 perform differently at the same current, so how can they show their PPFD map and give a PPFD reading?
    Same thing with this:
    Efficiency PPF/Watt: 2.2 µmols/watt
    Will not be the same for the different COBs.
    They have a video or 2 of them doing the PAR readings, but those readings would be different depending on the LED you got.
