Wrong LED unit delivered from China?

16 posts in this topic

Hi guys. :)

So this is my first post here, I've been reading across the forums for a while now but having decided to pull the trigger and start a small grow agin for first time in a decade, thought I'd sign up and be bit more involved.

First issue Ive encountered, when ordering a Meizhi 1000w LED from eBay, I have been sent a Spiderfarmer 1000w LED instead. The listing pic was the Meizhi, apparently the description was for the spider.

BASICALLY. IS THIS NORMAL LOL?

They fogged me off bit and given the current corona do da I couldn't be to arsed with pursuing too much. Checked migro review on youtube and the spider seems sufficient for now but yeah...

Anyone else had this issue??

Think best thing to do would get a watt meter so you can see how much power it's drawing and adjust expectations accordingly from what you expect to yield from it mate 

It will work but for there not great in comparison to most current tech diyleduk has etc

All the best on returning to your hobby

It probably has the same bits in side it as the Meizhi one anyway. I got the 600w version (it draws 270w at the wall), due to the cost of it and the cost 'proper' ones (not purple durple ones). I can easily get 7 oz of decent weed out of a 90cm x 90cm tent with it, so they ain't totally pointless. But if the you can do that with a crappy one, imagine what you can do with a good one. Give it ago, but I promise you, you, like me, will be drooling over DIYLEDUKs kit and dreaming of getting 'proper' LEDs. I now use my Meizhi for vegging which its great for.

If you have it now just go with it but as above temper your expectations with regards to true wattage. I picked up a Mars Hydro 300W and it's decent for the first few grows. I've upgraded to a scope from diyleduk but plenty of people on here using blurple lights and they seem to get decent yields. Once you get to harvest you might be quite happy with the performance. Good luck man. If you get your environment dialled in and learn from any mistakes you'll be good. If you haven't got a heat mat or some underfloor heating, I would highly recommend getting some. Your roots will love you for it.

I think i read somewhere that SpiderFarmer is just a different name for Meizhi, they will be the same light.

 Ive not heard to the Brand you intended to purchase but Spider Farmer are having great reviews online, Ive got 2 Spider Farmer SF2000s myself and they seem to do the job nicely .... question is , is the SF1000 going to be enough for your grow space ?
