I bought the light 2 months ago.I have the mars hydro tsw2000 series as well which for the money is a great light itself but there is no comparison between the two.The results speak for themselves.In comparison to other lights on the market with the same wattage and size it is the best deal for the dollar hands down and I'd buy 10 more without any concern.I also bought mine before they went up to $1000.
Not full spectrum as advertised
I bought 12 mars hydro fc 6500 lights. 9 came with red diodes and only 3 out of 12 came with the full spectrum uv and fr diodes that was advertised. I tought im buying a full spectrum light but i only got lucky on 3 of them out of 12. It seeme they cheaped out on the blue diodes and went with just red but thats not what was advertised. There 2 different lights both named fc 6500 one is full spectrum and one is just reds missing the the blue uv. I am guessing mars hydro cheaped out to save money but i am not happy paying close to 1000$ for a random spectrum light. Not what was advetised as full spectrum arrives with no blue just red diodes.
Great lights when the price was cheaper
Don’t know why you guys upped the price on these lights. I think you’re asking to much for them now...... had to give them 4 stars because of the price increase. You guys were in top of the game when u had them for $800.00 something don’t know why you increased the price so much.......
Bought this light to replace the mars hydro tsw2000 300 watt light.The plants have reacted amazingly.Best buy for the money,compared to lights with similar wattage this light is hundreds of dollars cheaper than most.Comes with dimmer for easy usage.
