Review and Specs: MarsHydro Reflector LED Grow Light
The MarsHydro Reflector LED Grow Light is a great buy for growers who are on a budget. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the quality reflects the pricing. Sometimes it’s best to save money and minimize your costs to begin with.
Finding the most cost efficient ways of saving money while also maintaining a good grow is a touch combination to achieve. But this grow light makes things so much simpler.
It’s a fairly heavy item, which tends to be a good sign because it means the item has been made with durable material that is strong.
When you purchase this product, the company provide you with pretty much everything you need (aside from the plants). There is no instruction manual included, but luckily this grow light is fairly simple to set up.
It involves plugging it in to an electrical input with the power cord and installing the hangers. The design and practicality of the hangers is something that customers have been loving!
However, people have been noticing that the way the power cord is positioned creates some problems. If you don’t have it attached on top, it gets in the way. Ideally you should have the cords above but this isn’t a major issue.
Another complaint from customers involves the “flower” option. This setting has been reported to singe plants. This can be avoided so long as you pay a little more attention to your grow space. However, for a complete beginner who has no instruction manual, this may become a larger problem.
But you have to keep in mind, this is the kind of light you use if you are trying to stay within a budget.
The heat output that this grow light creates is good, especially when you turn on the “veg” switch. You don’t have to worry about any of the common heat problems that come with HPS and HID lights as LED bulbs produce a minimal amount of it. Furthermore, this model has a built in fan to ensure things are kept cool.
