The Good

  • A unique and remarkable design with high output in both modes veg and bloom modes.
  • Lights are cooled efficiently thanks to intake and outtake pin-cushion that allows heat to sink ensuring a longer lifespan.
  • For its size, it is extremely energy-efficient. It kind of goes unnoticed in your electric bill.


The Bad

  • Lighting quality is so intense that it may hurt your eyes if you look at it directly. Wearing protective glasses when working around this light is not an option but a requirement.
  • Even though it is very simple to install and use, it lacks an instruction manual which can be helpful for some details, especially for beginners.
  • There are a few details regarding design that could have been implemented better, the position of the power cord (you may need to clip it to have it off the way) for example.
