Optic LED has now seamlessly integrated eight of CREE's largest most efficient COBs (XLAMP CXB-3590) with industry-leading glass optical projection lenses to give you unprecedented light penetration with the highest PPFD of any 500-watt lighting system.
The combination of these two technologies combined with a proprietary blend of 3-watt Osram LEDs will give you significantly improved grams per watt yield and significant increases in trichome density and quality.
Growing with the Optic 8+ you can expect to yield up to 2.5 pounds which is an incredible 2.4 grams per watt.
This fixture is ideal for vegging a 6' x 6' area or flowering a 4' x 4' to 5' x 5' area.
The Optic 8+ spectrum ranges from 380nm to 780nm, covering the entire PAR spectrum + UV-A and near-infrared (far red). The additional green light helps increase photosynthesis deep in the leaves and inside the canopy. Far-red light, when combined with red light, has been proven to increase the rate of photosynthesis.
Spectrum on OPTIC 8+ @ Full Power - All 3 Dimmers @100%
Spectrum for VEG - VEG Dimmer @100% & Bloom Dimmer @10% - only the COBS on. VEG Dimmer controls the two 5000k COBs which gives you more blue light and two 3500k COBs.
Spectrum of COBS only @ Full Power - Veg Dimmer @100%, Bloom Dimmer @100% & Bloom Enhancers Off. (Used in VEG & Flower)
Spectrum of Far Red Bloom Enhancers that include Ultra Violet & Infrared

Compared to what these replaced, there really is no comparison. This light is bad azz.
Currently using 2 in a 4x8 completely enclosed tent running CO2. With the Veg cobs at 100% and the Bloom at 70%, I'm getting a pretty even PAR / PPFD across the meat of the canopy around 900 at 2'. Very little far red, cannot measure UV accurately with my tools.
Temps reach 83* in the tent with no outside air exchange at 68* ambient. A 12000 BTU mini split hardly ever turns on. I could keep it under 80* with less light closer, but I get the best spread with the unit a little further away. If you are exhausting your tent, this light will be perfect with no need for AC.
Compared to my 1000W HID Hortilux, spectrum is very similar and PAR is lower. But the HID has hot spots for PAR that quickly fall off to the sides. Overall, I believe more useable light is hitting leaves with the Optic 8s.
I'm still in my first month of use, however if the light continues to impress throughout the grow, I will be hanging up my HID lights for good and buying 2 more. Plan to supplement with far red and UV during flower if needed. Overall, highly recommended if you are serious about the science and performance of your whole system.
New grower here this light is awesome
Quality over Larf the lamp pumps out quality Nug Meat!!!
Absolutely love the Optic8+ . Fast delivery and excellent service ! :)
Purchased this light and boy was it ever worth it. Waited to write this review until I had a good amount of time to use the light. Well im impressed with the quality of this light. By far the best light I have used to date. The dimmable aspect of the light really helps dial in the best spectrum for your plants your growing. My plants are healthier,bigger and over all happy girls. I would recommend this light to any grower. Once again thank you to led grow lights Depot for the fast shipping and great product.
