Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing your results. Unfortunately, most people that have been testing LED lights either didn't complete their journals or had problems during their grow that impacted their results. I'm hoping to see the SS reach the 1gram/watt (or better) mark but none have so far. I'm not sure how long they last, I don't work for CLW, but I think it's the standard 50,000 life span with a 3 year guarantee. Some of the early ones had a problem, we're told, but *everyone* raves about the customer service at CLW.
I still use HID and I'm NOT an LED expert. All of my LED knowledge is from other parties or research so I can't say from first hand experience one way or another. I also run a medical grow consulting business in SoCal.
