 California Lightworks 440w



California Lightworks 440W LED Grow Light definitely falls under one of the more expensive lights on our list, but this is one situation where you get the results you pay for. This particular unit comes in a bright red color – a stark change from subtly-colored light panels from other manufacturers.
The light is a bit more intense than those with 3W chips, as this uses 5W LEDs instead – 88 of them. The optics are all jewel-quality glass focused at 90 degrees. In addition, it has two 15W UV-B tubes to enhance growth at the flowering stages. This panel runs cool and quiet with its built-in fans, and it comes with a 3-year warranty. California Lightworks is always a very well-recognized brand in the LED community, so you can't go wrong here.

 Advanced Platinum Series P300 300W





For those who love the P600 but don’t have quite that large of a budget or size of a grow tent, the Advanced Platinum Series P300 is a great runner-up. This is definitely a more affordable LED grow light that offers many of the same benefits as the P600, but at around half the price.

Its coverage is about 4.5 feet by 3.8 feet at an 18-inch height, perfect for compact grow areas, or when used in combination with additional lamps for larger areas. This light panel effectively replaces a 400W HPS light, while only actually using 180 watts of power – making it an energy efficient alternative to a traditional light. It’s just perfect for the small home grower. Just as the P600 represents the higher end of the market, this is still a serious piece of equipment–practically a steal for the amazing coverage you get.

This is a system that has a great high PAR per Lumen output of any other LED grow light panel I’ve seen. What does that mean? Well it means the panel gives off about 2 to 3 times the intensity of other grow lights.

More importantly, it has an 11 band spectrum that gives your marijuana plants the most nutritional value including those needed from UV and IR. The light chips are all 3W LEDs, and as I’ve mentioned before, the best 3-watt panels have an additional lens to focus the light a bit more. This panel comes with a 60-degree lens and secondary 90-degree focusing lens to give more intensity for plant growth.

The chips in this lamp are also replaceable and another reason for the slightly higher price tag. This means you can always keep that 400-watt output, even when a chip blows. Just order the one chip and replace it when it arrives from the manufacturer. With a 5-year guarantee, PlatinumLED offers security to their customers.

Morsen 2400W

Morson is a top brand and you are looking for top quality. These lights typically run bigger and more powerful than most other LEDs. These lights have low energy consumption and really run great no matter what stage of plant growth you are in.

It’s a very high quality product and trusted brand for a very good price (especially when you compare to more expensive options out there like California Lightworks). Can be used in house garden, pot culture, sowing, a greenhouse + more.

GoGrow V3 Master Grower 1000W



These lights have great design and also have high PAR value across your canopy. GoGrow is a very large company with an international presence (big in Europe, Japan, Australia) so their products are highly lauded as some of the best in the market. 

Great for grow tents, a room, and greenhouses. This is also a great product for you if you want something that’s easy to install as it comes with everything you need (hangers, cords, carabiners). 

Customers rave about how fast the plants grow and how potent they become. This light produces very high PAR at a very low wattage. Great for energy consumption and for the price, this light gets the job done.

Apollo Horticulture GL80X5LED 400W






Everyone knows the Apollo brand. This LED light produces very little heat because of the compactness of the product.

The Apollo brands are typically lighter in weight and this light is easier to mount inside grow tents in particular. The price is very good for someone that isn’t looking to spend much but is looking for a recognized brand and quality.

This particular product has been known to provide great light no matter what stage you are in (veg or flower). The Apollo light will have enough lumens to do whatever your plant needs to do with little to no heat and easy installation steps for you to follow. Plants respond well and these lights consume less power with great durability.

Galaxyhydro 300W 


The first thing comes to mind for this product is the price. For what it costs, you’re getting a great product that has high output and is durable.

The intensity of the light is great especially considering it is very power efficient with  great spectrum on the light. The fans on this light also help keep the temperature down dramatically and is great for a beginner indoor grower who wants to test a light at an affordable price. 

The recommended height to plant distance is around 12”-50” depending on the growing stages. The item is light at around 5 pounds and is extremely bright given the size. This light may not speed up the growing pace for your plants like some of the more expensive options, but it’s perfectly serviceable.

This light is priced modestly and runs very cool. Works great in different sized tents and the light spread is second to none. 

These lights are made from China, but don’t let that fool you, these lights are very powerful and work very well for any type of grow. The fans are extremely quiet. It’s recommended that during the flowering stage, you limit the use of this light to a 4x4 space in order to maximize for efficiency and light intensity. The design of this light allows for great light penetration and the set up is easy with minimal weight restrictions.

Marshydro Reflector 720W 

This light does not get loud nor does it get loud. When we tried this light, it exceeded our expectations, especially for an “inexpensive” light.

The brand has been around for a while hence why they are able to make the installation easy for just about everyone. Energy efficient. We used ours in a 4x4 canopy and it worked great as the light was able to penetrate all open space.

This is a very highly lauded grow light with some of the best longevity we have seen in the LED category (have had many iterations and have been producing LED grow lights for 8 years). The cream of the crop is what many bloggers and review sites describe this light as and has been awarded some very high accolades by major publications. 

These lights are for both vegetative growth and flowering and provide very intense lighting for 24 square feet of canopy. The light emits very low heat and requires low electricity usage. This is the perfect light for you if you want to go from a beginner set up to a professional production.

 You may think it is a high price tag, but the money you save through electricity costs and the durability of this light will get you a long way.

Oh and by the way? High Times rated this the best LED light of 2016.

Vintage Grow 300W w/ Optical Lens



This is great bang for your buck. The lowest priced option of the bunch and great energy savings. With only 170 watts pulled from the outlet, the light is able to still give high PAR value which will allow for very valuable savings after a few months (you should be able to get your $ back soon).

 These lights deliver 12 bands including 2 IR and 2 UV through optical lens to maximize the PAR per watt. The Vintage Grow lights are great for the veg cycle and you should see results quickly with the brightness of the light. The lights themselves are very powerful, but don’t give off the same kind of heat as some of the other more expensive brands/lights on this list.
