Hello fellow farmers, hope you all are having a fruitful day.
Goal highest umol/watt
I am currently considering purchasing a proper LED light setup for a 4x4 footprint inside a 5x10 tent.
I've selected these two for the sake of simplicity and more importantly because they are Ready to Ship/In Stock/Fast Dispatch, and the companies look respectable enough.
There may be better options
Note: First time buying on Alibaba

I have narrowed it down to two choices both on Alibaba. Any feedback/experience with these lights/companies is greatly appreciated.

Option 1: lm301b quantom board 480 HLG V3 equiv
Samsung lm301b 3000k mix Cree XPE 660nm uv 380nm
The emitting color in the options is 2700k +4000k (which would be great) so I am not 100% until I hear back from seller.
This one is currently on promotion sale, knock $40 off each piece. I would probably need to get a larger heatsink or come up with some other way to get a better spread on the lights (similar to HLG, wider.)

Seller is Bava,
on sale 480w - https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...ml?spm=a2700.icbuShop.41413.15.ef28db13sX8Rbm
720w - https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...ml?spm=a2700.icbuShop.41413.25.5b903419Asd5LR

Similar from Kingbrite (BONUS only need to buy 1)992 pcs Samsung 301B+128pcs Epistar 660nm+ 16pcs Epistar UV + 16pcs Epistar IR
Heatsink size: 500*660*4mm
bigger heatsink with more spread
V2 version without UV $70 cheaper https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...m=a2700.wholesale.maylikehoz.5.5a52283dD3qLzf

Option 2: Fluence style from Origlite
Samsung White LEDs 301B V2, CRI90(Luminous Efficacy: 223 lm/W, 3500K and 6500K) + CREE Red LEDs 351H-C(PPF: 2.32 μmol/s @ 350mA, Efficacy: 2.32 μmol/J)
It has overall dimming, 3-route spectral tuning by PWM, Wifi (with LoRa) or wired Ethernet.
I like it's flexibility as each bar adds ~80W hence the 490w - 660w range although you can go as small as 170W up to 1000W.
The specs look pretty good and I really dig the ability to create a custom spectrum on my PC or PWM.
Definitely more expensive, not sure if the extra cost is worth it. I would probably go with 660w. I am a bit skeptical on this though, aside from their questionable alibaba listing practices (have yet to find a company on there that doesn't do this tbh) I noticed little discrepancies like on their official document they sent me that lists the CRI at both 80 and 90. (see pdf) Link: https://www.alibaba.com/product-det....galleryofferlist.normalList.1.257178eccRuxyC

I do like the light bars style for coverage and canopy penetration, was thinking of adding one or two if going with the hlg 480 style, most likely something like https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...tml?spm=a2700.icbuShop.41413.9.35e0db13cP21vQ

Thanks for looking.

After typing this up, I feel like I have come close to convince myself to go with the kingbrite, waiting to hear back from company now.
