i think my 2 best options for my price range and needs are, im growing in a 4x4 with 5 plants in 5 gallons all autos, most likely GH bottles unless someone can suggest me a simple organ dry ammend for coco , and super easy to use for beginner. But first i care about lights :)

(vivosun 600w x2) pulls 270 actual watts, so id have 520 for a 4x4 with 5 plants

No idea about vivosun but I personally would go with a QB every time. Hope this helps you make a decision. Peace. :cools:

I'm new at this, but I would go for the quantum knock offs myself. You will have better distribution of light for a 4x4 with the rectangular shape of the individual lights, the spectrum color is likely better than blurple, and the lack of fans is one less thing to go wrong. OTOH, either will grow bud for you.

My only experience with Vivosun is with their 6" carbon filter, and it works a treat and seems well made. Their lights get decent reviews, as far as I recall from being in the market a few months ago.

Good luck with your decision, and happy growing. :goodluck: :biggrin:

For a 4*4 grow space, TS3000 is the correct one, white full-spectrum, 450w, 4ft*4ft coverage in flower, 5ft*5ft coverage in veg :smoking:

Would you like to consider TS3000? White full-spectrum, 450w, 4ft*4ft coverage in flower, 5ft*5ft coverage in veg :smokeout:

How much is the ts3000? I'm loving the ts2000 and it's brighter than hlg qb 120v2. I've got 4 on a 320w meanwell and it's not half the light the ts2000 is.

I didn't have the 600 vivosun but last January I started with two 300s in a 2x4x5 tent. Wasnt liking the results at all. Bought an hlg 100 to replace one 300. Well, that 100 watt light was brighter than both the 300s combined. I now run a mars hydro sp250 in a 2x4. Cant compare to other blurples on the market but I'd stay away from the vivosun ones. And Im.glad I'm no longer using the blurples.
