    Not all LED’s r created equal but a high quality true 1500W LED would blow a 400watt hps out the water with ease. I could only imagine what I could grow with 1500 Watts of autocobs.

    Everything!
    I agree! Even a decent mid-ranged 600w Led will smoke a 400w hps...A 315w Lec will smoke a 400w hps, 200w of autocobs will smoke a 400w hps..I've ran a 400w hps in the past and unless your in a legal grow area I'd strongly advise against it!! A 400w hps w/ a digital ballast will put out enough radio noise, to attract unwanted attention, so keep that in mind, if going with a 400w hps I would use rf interference add-on's to help keep the noise down...

    Not to mention that an HPS puts out enough heat to broil steaks under

    If your hungry that’s not the worse thing in the world and that actually sounds good.
