This is my first real grow light and I'm loving it so far. My seedlings are only a week old so I cant yet know how it performs through the entire grow. One bank of Cubs didn't work at first but after some testing I discovered it was just a loose wire on one cob. Working great now. My master grower friend that's strictly HID was even impressed. He's guiding me through the grow so I should be able to eliminate most grower errors and see what the light can do. Maybe it will convince him to switch:)
600 Watt LED grow light fixture featuring Citizen CLU048 COB LEDs. Ideal for growing indoors in a greenhouse, tent or over a farming table. Using best-of-breed components the Redwood TS is a full spectrum COB LED light designed for close canopy operation over a 4'x4' area. The unit comes fully assembled (as shown) and ready to hang.
Please note, reflectors as shown are no longer available. Recent integrated sphere testing has shown a loss of almost 8-10% in PAR wattage using the reflectors vs not. Additionally, the light is able to be operated closer to the canopy with even PAR spread.

I went from a 1000w hps for flowering ( that I ran at 60% due to heat issues so say 600w) to the redwood ts which runs just over 600w. First the heat, it does let off some heat I mean it is drawing 600w's it's to be expected but it's way less that the HPS I was using. The HPS ballast alone was hotter than these LED lights. Growth has been right on par with the HPS, bud density seems great so far, light coverage reaches every corner of my 4x4 grow tent and penetration of the canopy seems to be similar to the HPS. I've grown the exact same strains for a couple years now under HPS so this is a comparison with the same strains same nutrients just different lights and I'm really happy with the Redwood TS. No doubt it's a big investment but if you can you will not regret it from what I've seen. If harvest is for some reason crap I will amend this review but it I have no reason to think it will be!
When I purchased this light from Timber Grow Lights in 2017 I was a little hesitant about switching to COB LEDs from your standard run of the mill LED lights you can purchase online. However, after owning one for the last year I was confident enough in these lights I purchased a second one in June to replace a failed 1000w metal halide setup I was using. The build quality on these is top notch. The wiring is routed cleanly along the aluminum frame, they use quality Mean Well drivers, there is a single knob to adjust the output on all channels, and they come with reflectors for the COBs and hanging ropes. You won't find any sloppy or second-rate assembly with these lights. The way these lights are shipped also speaks to the quality. The COBs are all covered with protective plastic, and the entire light is encased in bubble wrap before being placed inside a 4x4 box. Most of the accessories come in separate boxes so they aren't flopping around inside the box which keeps them from causing any damage during shipping. Customer service is also prompt and helpful whenever I have questions about the lights. All of my questions were answered before I even purchased a light in 2017, and when I needed a longer cable this year the owner was kind enough to send me an extension cable at no charge. If you're looking for a high-quality grow light I would highly recommend you look at these. You will be hard-pressed to find a better-built light that also comes with customer service you can count on for the price.
This light is AMAZING! Its the best one out there hands down!
