Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w review : Basic info about the product
This grow light is like the elder sister of the 450W model of the same company. It has a bit extra to provide you with. A bit extra strength, durability, coverage area, etc. It’s success rate also touches 92%, which is exactly the same as its 450W model. The PAR/Lumen output is perfectly balanced to spread even light all over your plants.
Professional indoor growers have spent several years in experimenting and researching, to built this grow light. Up to some extent, they have been successful in taking it to the limit of perfection. At the 600W range, we do not find a better grow light for cannabis than Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w.
We tested growing cannabis with more than a dozen of grow lights of various companies, and found that the flowers that bloomed under this grow light were having a maximum density of resin and were bigger as well!
Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w reviews : Features
No matter how many reviews you read related to this item, all will repeat the same thing-: Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w is a feature-rich grow light. Here are the key features of this grow light.
Highly powerful and durable LEDs used
This LED grow light consists of 120 highly powerful 5W bulbs, which are manufactured by BridgeLux/Epileds. Both are highly trusted companies worldwide. No issues regarding durability either. When all these LED bulbs work together, the power that they generate is enormous. Besides that, no heating issues.
Highly reliable cooling system
Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w consists of a very efficient cooling system, which is an expert in dissipating heat. There has never been an over-heating issue with this grow light. What was the reason? The decent cooling system was!
It operates 70% cooler than traditional HID lights. The fans are quiet, that is another significant advantage. After all, what is the advantage of having a decent cooling system in your LED grow light, which surely works perfect, but doesn’t let you sleep at night due to high noise?
A big factor responsible for the high trend of Viparspectra LED lights is that they fit low noise cooling system in almost all of their grow lights.
Outstanding PAR value
Makers had concentrated hard on providing you with a bigger PAR value when they built it. When you have fixed it at the height of 24 inches, you receive 456umol as PAR value. It is certainly more when we compare this grow light with other 600W models.
Just for your knowledge, the PAR value is directly proportional to the height at which you fix your grow light. The PAR value keeps on increasing while you decrease the height. Like with this lights, the PAR value increases to 703umols at 18 inches.
Daisy chaining feature
Usually, you do expect a grow light to provide you with this particular feature when you are talking about a 600W model. With this model also, you can enjoy daisy chaining and connect your light to several others, for better light intensity as well as adding on to actual grow area, that you get with this LED grow light.
Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w reviews : Specs
This LED grow light measures 15.3×12.8×3 inches. It is much heavier than the 450W model. It is 11.6 pounds. But we do not think that the weight matters much. After all, you do not have to move from one place to other with it.
The package that arrives your home consists of the following things:
- Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w LED
- User Instructions
- 6ft Power Cord
- Hanging Kit
The working frequency is 50-60Hz, and the viewing angle is 90 degrees. You can work on with Viparspectra Reflector series 600W in any part of the world, as the voltage you require is AC100-240V. Following are a few more specs.
Actual power draw and HPS replacing capabilities
This 600W model doesn’t suck much electricity. It efficiently works on with an average power consumption equal to 260W(+3/-3%). Yes, it relieves your tension regarding rise in electricity bills. Don’t worry, be happy!
This LED grow light is exceptionally powerful and is capable of replacing a 600W HPS/MH light system.
That is probably the first thing to concern before buying an LED grow light. You must choose a grow light, which successfully illuminates your grow area. Now, let us mention that the coverage area differs as per the height of placement.
With this grow light, you get a coverage area measuring 3′ x 3′ when you hang it 32” above. It decreases to 2.5′ x 2.5′ when you decrease the height to 22” during the bloom stage of your plants. A coverage area of 9sq.ft means much at that price level.
The lifespan and warranty
There is nothing fancy with the lifespan that you get with this LED grow light. 100,000 hours it is, and that is what you get at that price level most of the times. Guys, companies claim that their product is having these much hours lifespan, but many times, the words do not stand. Performance and claim are both different things.
So, the question is, is this grow light really capable of serving for 100,000 hours? The answer is YES. If you do not use it over 18 hours a day, then certainly yes, it is going to serve you for the time claimed by its makers.
Three years warranty is what you get with this item. Cost fewer replacements and repairs throughout that period. In addition to that you get a 30 days money back guarantee. Most importantly, the company does hear you.
Many users that took advantage of the warranty mentioned in the consumer reviews that they were treated well and responded quickly, and their replacements, refunds, and repairs were done is very less time.
Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w reviews : A quick FAQ round
Are some questions ringing in your mind like bells regarding features, utilization, functions, etc. of this product. We know that these questions might ring up even after the purchase is made, so we have covered the FAQ both for the future buyers and for those who already have got one at home. Let us march forward buddies!
Is that price tag acceptable?
Definitely yes! At that price level, if the company is providing you with such a brilliantly functioning product, then you are surely not looted. By the way, you must be happy with your purchase. Not bought yet? Hurry! Who knows when the price goes up or down?
Please guide me at what height must i place it right from the first stage till the last.
Here we go!
The initial height of light must be 37.5” right from the floor when your plant starts growing.
After a couple of weeks, lower light by five-six inches. (31-32 inches from the floor)
After 3 weeks, you need to lower light to 14.5” from the upper tip of your tallest plant.
After 4 weeks, lower light even more. This time to 13” from the tip of your tallest plant.
After 4 weeks and 2 days turn on switch #1.
After 5 weeks and 2 days have passed, keep light 12” again from the tip of your tallest plant. (Throughout the duration of grow).
After you have switch # 1, you will notice a yellow color on the tips of your leaves. That indicates excessive light. Now, either you raise the light by 2 inches or turn switch off #1 off for a week until your plants develop more maturity.
Note: Turn on only switch #2 during the veg stage. After a bit of maturity in your baby plants, you can turn ON switch #1.
What are the deficiencies in Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w?
No major deficiencies, as we mentioned, this light is almost perfect. Under the term cautions, you just need to completely prevent outdoor use and protect it against water. Besides that, you need to monitor the light intensity.
What is the best grow tent size and how many plants can I grow?
2 x 2 feet or 3 x 3 feet is the ideal tent size you, for the best results. You are supposed to grow maximum four plants, as this grow light will support the best right from the veg stage to the last stage. Want to grow more than that? Bring one more LED and connect it to this one, using the daisy chaining feature.
What buyers have to say about it?
4.6 stars out of five are what this product has been successful in receiving on Amazon. A total of 546 users have written reviews. You know what else, 77% of users have given a complete five-star rating. So, still have you got any doubt regarding the excellence of this grow light?
We mentioned in our Viparspectra Reflector Series 600w review that we are going to cover the darker side also. So, as per that, we tried our best to find the cons. Only 5% of users have given 2 stars and below. Most of them suffered issues related to the growth of plants due to their own mistakes (Their plants failed to survive, as they might have placed the light at the wrong height).
That is not the light’s mistake for sure. It is upon us whether how are we using it. Now the second issue was a broken unit delivered. That is a manufacturing issue and delivery issue. Again, the grow light itself is not responsible.
