49 posts in this topic

Just got a migro 100.  Wanted an upgrade on the 110w cfl im running. Maybe a bit OTT. Or maybe not. What do you all think? Did i waste coin or was it a good investment?

They look to retail @ around £230. You could get a samsung unit made up for that money - don't know if they are better tho as I as don't know how good your light is.

I saw a video on the migrow yt channel which got me interested in their lights, I wonder what @diyleduk reckons to them?

Probably a bit late as you have already bought it but I have heard good things about 'Sol-Stix' (fairly new) and quantum boards.

 

The LED market is changing so fast though that whatever you buy today, there will be better available for the same price in six months. Like the drone market right now.

 

Don't let that stop you buying, don't let that make you regret what you have bought.

 

You have a light, your plants will grow, you will get the benefit you want.

 

Don't let FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) ruin your enjoyment of your light.

 

Always investigate a product, the competition, and reviews before buying, never after. Don't look until you want to buy again.

 

If your current light is OTT you can dial them down on some models which makes them more efficient as a bonus.

Thanks for the reply.   I did do a bit of homework on the light    90% of the info/vids I’ve seen are migro themselves.  

I knew on here ill get a bit of honesty.

I've been doing a lot of reading and research into leds for a small grow space and the migro 100 is definitely on my short list along with prakasa 100 w cob (£100) and plant photonics stellar49 (£279) . The build quality of the migro 100 looks very good ... and the passive heat sink means no fan noise. There are some good videos on you tube as well. Relax and enjoy your light , you've paid a bit more for a really solid build but if you think about the money we've spent on weed over the years it's nothing . I'm a little envious :)

Over time ill get different ones.   With migro i just went to a shop and got it.  Was looking at boards etc i would have had to wait.  Go check my patients waiting for seeds lol

I was told.  Didn’t believe it tho.  That 1 migro light in a 1m x1m tent got 1 guy a kilo.  That was a bold statement I thought lol   Seen vids where a guy got 7 oz off 2 plants (maybe autos can’t remember).  

 

Thats why i got it to replace my cfl.  Don’t believe any cnut lol

100W of light producing a kilo would be 10g per watt. I think we may be a little while away from any light being able to produce that. Best I have heard is 2-2.5GPW from LED.

 

I feel confident whoever said that was lying.

 

7 OZ from one would be 1.91GPW which should be totally possible.
