I need a light for my 5x5 tent, and I was thinking about going with the optic 650s but can't find any reviews about it from somebody that you used it. Or any suggestions for a 5x5 LED preferably. Thanks to all.

I like to get two or 4 smaller lights instead of one big one. You can distribute the light better and if one burns out you still have some light until you get another one.

I haven't looked at optic in a few yrs and they were bad then if its the same company. The prices from what I just looked at leave me thinking you can get a far far better light for the cost.

Are you in Canada by chance?

1300.00. 7 feet
I hate to sound like I'm just saying this because I bought one but the HLG SCORPION DIABLO. Is a very solid choice for that price. The next up i would go would be the gavita but there are plenty of other good ones like fluence etc.

After looking through them all I went with the HLG for the light spread, efficacy, warranty and intensity. It will fot a 5x5 perfect while its under the typical 30w per sq ft. The efficacy of this light is the best on the market... probably only for a few months to a yr but it will last years.

Again there are many good lights in that range for your footprint but I dont feel optic is one of them at this point. Will definitely grow but much better options for the price.

Brand new 3 yr warranty.

Refurbished 1 yr warranty. This is what I went with as the parts are basic and I can replace anything I likely need for less than the price difference.

That so funny the other light i was looking at was the scorpion. Crazy. So you really like it ? See the optic 650s has light adjustments for blue,red,white. It also have a 10 year warranty. Turn up blue for veg. Red for flower. White has is own dimmer to. It was the only reason i was leaning towards it as well as the warranty

This is the light and wedsite.
Yeah it all looks good but almost to good if ya know what I mean. And I dont believe the numbers they are claiming... not for a second.

Also thier warranty is they ship you the broken part. They also don't warranty for wear and tear, humid environment etc.

I just don't trust them.

The hlg has close to 1500 more diodes so I have no idea how the optic can be a more efficient light when they are using apparently the same Samsung diodes.

I looked at optic years ago and felt they were misleading by a lot... still don't feel much has changed.

Just my opinion

I pull over 2 a light with GC ROI720. Just had my first run from 1000w HIDs, I couldn't believe it. I was nervous the entire time quality was going to take a hit.

Full disclosure though, I have still have 1 1000w raptor hood in between 2 ROIs, so there is still some HID in the room. A ROI fits 5×5 perfectly.
