Quantum led boards how good are they? Has anyone got any results to share?

Posted (edited)

I’m looking into the quantum boards and wondering if anyone can share any results from them, I tend to use a light per plant rather than covering a sea of green so also wondering what amounts of light or watts per plant that I would say was around 2f high 2ft wide at finish from the top of a dwc with a 24 tangie in it that’s done around 7 under a cmh, I think now as a clone the 24 tangie with 4 weeks veg would easily do 12 under the cmh probably not much wider 2.5 ft x 2.5 ft approx

I've got the HLG 100w plug and play board 3000k. flowering footprint 2x2 on the website, but to be honest I ended up running my viper 450w next to it in a DR60 (2x2) as I didn't feel it really had enough poke towards the end of the flowering period. A nice light with good penetration all the same. I'll be getting another one, so then I'll have 2 x 100w boards in the 2x2 tent.

In hindsight, a 135w kit probably would have done it. (288 leds Vs 192 on the 100w board) 

Probably didn't help much, but there you go...

:blub:

I’ve been looking at the 135 watt because I don’t like the layout of the long ones I want to put 2 135w side by side for 1 plant but I’m wondering if this is slightly too much and on the website there’s a Choice of boards qb288 301b 561c ? What’s the best one for everything?

I would disagree, @platinumbud:hippy:

 

easily get gram gram per watt, that’s 2 boards running at full power, now I am running 3 at 100 watts each, gonna flip soon, so pretty similar to the cmh yield wise, but the flavour, outta the park mate.Jj:skin_up:

@Jibba jabba pleased to meet someone who uses these boards, I've been eyeing them up for a while now.  You feel they are now at a level where I could look to swap out my hps and get comparable or even favourable results?

Thats a bit of a shuttered view mate, mars are inferior to hlg, not saying that they don’t work or preform badly, just not as good.

 

How many grows have you completed  with your Quantum’s then @angelina it would be nice to hear your results :yep:

Try to equal the wattage you've previously used for best results buddy. It should outperform cmh or hps by at least 40% all other things being equal.
