The box arrived a bit warped and clearly thrown about by UPS. A couple of the Aluminum heat syncs was bent, but nothing worth getting upset about. None the less the light works fine and is much brighter than I expected, I adjusted the dimmer but then wondered why use such a feature... I immediately installed the light into my new space and took out the cheapy LED system I have. I had 3 plants in bloom when I switched out the lights. One plant 50%, another at 25%, and a third just 1 week into flower. I added a fourth to the space and now I have 4 in bloom. The light is much easier on the eyes and the plants really seem to be responding well. So far I am impressed but only time will tell if this light (3500 Kelvin) will replace my 1500 watts of LED's being used for bloom. Price wise they are comparable, so it's all about how I allocate the lights for usage.

So far I really like the light. It has a very nice build, I like the adjustable cobs. I have some cheap LED's and this thing really kicks out light. I have to wait another few weeks to see how the end result looks, but so far the plants are very happy. Definitely on par with my hps. I would recommend, good quality, components and performance for the price point. My only wish is that daisy chain feature be added. I plan on upgrading my room piece by piece and having that feature would help a ton with running the wires.
Received a Citizen 200 watt linear just under a week ago and my goodness the plants and me both love them. Very cool running and very very bright! The build is exceptionally clean and I'd recommend timbergrowlights to anyone looking to get into cobs
