Advanced Platinum Series 450W LED Grow Light Reviews : Basic info about the product
We already wrote a review on the 300W model and explained the excellence of that grow light, and now it is the time to measure the 450W on various grounds. Although this one is also for basic level growers, we experience a high craze of this grow light among the intermediates as well.
The qualities and the positives are very much similar to the 300W model, but here, a few more cons are what we have. yes, the other side of the coin matters the most, and that is why we have comprehensively covered the “not too good” part in the FAQ section, at the last of the review.
Although, it is a highly functional product, and provides a full spectrum. It has proved that it is one of the best 450W models regarding growing marijuana and cannabis. The results have been decent as well, but a “high cost” issue is stuck with this model. So, we will clarify that as well.
Not only the exteriors look like the 300W model, but the features also match very much. When you read about what all features this grow light has, you will find yourself feeling anxious about buying it. If you ask what feature is missing, then sorry, we do not have anything to point out.
Highly durable LED used
One of the most prominent factors responsible for the par success of this company the high-quality material that it uses in building its grow lights. For the LED chips also, they have trusted the best brand only. 150 Chips are used in this LED, and that trusted manufacturer is none other than Epileds. If any of these chips fuse, the other ships keep on working the way they did.
Full spectrum of lights

Advanced Platinum Series 450W LED Grow Light Reviews : A quick FAQ round
We have stored the cons here. Yes, right here in the FAQ section, and we are going to reveal each one of them in style now. We gathered these cons from consumer reviews, as well as we have thrown light on the inconveniences, that our experts faced with this grow light as well. So, read keenly, the info is vital!
The price is a bit high, isn’t it?
It was a thing to concern regarding the 300W model as well. We explained there in that review also, and here also we repeat the same thing that does not compare this grow light with the others only on the basis of price, if you want to compare only, then involve the features and specs as well.
Then you will yourself feel the difference that why is this grow light available at a bit higher price than those, who are not capable of providing even the half of the benefits, in comparison to Advanced Platinum Series 450W LED.
Will running both switches together help seedlings grow faster?
No, we strictly want you to avoid that, as that is going to have adverse effects. If you want to grow your seedlings faster, then just lower your LED to a couple of inches, every two days. You need to track the changes, and if they are positive, then you can carry on, but if affecting your seedlings, then don’t be in haste, be patient, pull back the LED to its normal distance, and let the seedlings grow with the natural speed.
The grow area is good, but what about daisy chaining? is it capable?
Yes, it is! You can join up other LEDs with your Advanced Platinum Series 450W LED and increased the growing area. This feature you are getting with almost all platinum series models of Advanced LED.
I want to grow a lemon plant which is 3 feet in height. Possible with this light or not?
Definitely possible. Just make sure that you do not place the light too close to the plant as the high intensity of light can affect the chlorophyll of the leaves. The height of placement must not be below 18 inches.
What all is there to stop me from purchasing Advanced Platinum Series 450W LED ?
Being not a waterproof grow light is never a con. The only and only factor that stops a few people from buying this grow light is its rate. See, although it very well justifies the price tag attached to it, it is a bit bigger investment for the amateurs, who have already invested much in this department. They are not growing for business, they are growing for personal use, so some of those amateurs exclaim that the price must be a bit low. Besides that, a guiding manual is absent.
Throw light on the users’ experience.
Actually, it deeply surprises that being such a brilliant grow light, it has received just 4.1 stars out of five from 112 consumers collectively! We have tested this grow light with a number of plants, and the yield was very satisfying. Then why is the success rate 82% only?
There are certain small cases that were responsible for the inconvenience of a few customers. Some of them found that the customer service doesn’t respond well, some were not happy with the bloom function, some said that the bulbs ran out of work quite soon. The absence of a guiding manual has played a huge role in bringing inconvenience.
If a guiding manual was provided, with all instructions in it, then no one had faced issues of plant damage, due to turning On wrong switches at the wrong time or placing the LED and wrong distance. If a guiding manual were there, the success rate would have been 88%-90%.
