For that, one has to take the advice from those, who have already used it, as most of the reviews about this grow light had shown you only the bright side. But we are here to flip the coin to the other side. Yes, exposing the cons is what we mean. Let us get on to the features first, then the numbers came, and then will come the bang-bang FAQ part, where we will point out the negatives. Ok, the intro is done, let’s move on.
Highly powerful and durable LED used
Bestva believes in building their grow lights with dual chips, which count 5W each. So, it is 10 Watt per chip. Almost all grow lights of this company are built the same way. 80 such chips are used in this grow light, so 80 x 10W, we get 800W, right? These LEDs are manufactured by Epileds, which is a company with a high reputation. Durability has never been any issue.
12 Bands Full spectrum
You cannot point out any deficiency in the spectrum of this grow light. A complete dozen band spectrum is what you get. It is one of the most capable spectrum for growing various plants. This spectrum had to pass out several tests before this grow light came in the market. The chips emit a perfect quantity of light, as per the need of your plant. Hence, it supports all stages of the plant growth. 380-780nm is what your plants will get.
New improved cooling system
The cooling system is the biggest supporter of the lifespan of the grow light, and besides that, it also supports the stability of the spectrum. The fans are ultra quiet. If you bring it home and find that the fans are making even a bit loud noise, then return the product and order a new one. The Warranty is going to help. The heat management system is very active, and we tested it at 42 degrees even, everything was cool.
The PAR value is never a stable thing, and it changes according to the height of placement. We generally measure the PAR from 24 inches height. Although what you are getting with this grow light as the PAR value looks much less in contrast to what other 800W grow lights are providing you.
From 24 inches, you are getting 388 umols, and from 18 inches, it increases to 494 umols. But the fact is this grow light is doing perfect work, and providing decent results. That shows the numbers do not always matter (Maths lovers might not agree). See the diagram above, to know about PAR values form various heights.

This FAQ part envelops such vital knowledge, and by reading this fully, you will hardly need anyone to advise you whether to buy this 800W model or not. Most importantly, the user’s experience is also brought into the light.
Are Veg and Bloom switches available?
No, the company says that it is better to provide all colors of light to all the stages of growth of your plant. If you use veg/bloom switches, you are cutting off the supply of certain lights, which is not that good.
Only On/Off switches are present. What must i do to bring changes in the light intensity during the veg and bloom phases?
You can simply increase the height when your plant is going through the veg stage, and for increasing the intensity during the bloom stage, reverse the process. The height recommendations are there on the company’s website.
A few bulbs do not look as if they are emitting nay light. How to determine whether they are working or not?
This grow light consists of some white light bulbs, so you are normally not able to see. To determine, you can use a device named spectrometer. With the help of it, you can easily see the spectra of light.
Can I grow tomatoes, or undergrounds like potatoes and carrots?
This grow light is powerful enough to fulfill the desires that you mentioned. When we test the light in our lab, we test it on various plants, which include tomatoes and undergrounds. We came across fine results.
What are ‘not too good’ things about Bestva 800W LED?
No daisy chaining and no Veg/Bloom switches are the first to things to notice. Besides that, when your plants are going to enter the bloom stage, you need to be perfect in the height placement of this grow light. If you are even a few inches wrong, your flowers are not going to bloom fully. So, be up with the tracking. If you find things are not rolling good, then change the height, and see how it proceeds.
The company led to confusion. The company provided the wrong numbers in the specs. So, a few people purchased it, as per the calculations of their grow tents, which actually went wrong due to the company’s mistake. In customer reviews, this thing is mentioned by seven users. It isn’t waterproof, so do not try to use it outdoor.

Now comes the complaint section. We already mentioned above that a few users had a bad experience due to misinformation provided by the company regarding specs. Besides that, a few users didn’t get their flowers perfect. The height of the plant was also an issue for a couple of users. But both of those things happened due to lack of tracking and calculation.
we already explained before that you need to be perfect in the height settings, especially during the bloom stage.
