With LED growlights the wattage will indicate the relative power in comparison with other LED lights, regardless of what marketing text you read. I've used LED Grow-Master, Sunshine Systems GlowPanel 45, Sunblaster T5 4-foot fluorescents (from webhydro.com), and HydroGrowLED arrays.
My favorite so far are the HydroGrowLED growlights. The T5 fluorescent growlights are also good, but produce quite a lot of heat, much more than the LED lights. However, some LED light arrays require a higher distance from the plants to gain coverage area or not to overpower the plants with too much light.
One LED unit I plan to try is the new fanless (quiet) LED growlight from HydroGrowLED, the ECO or ECO+ models, here--
I plan to use 3 of them for a 2-foot by 4-foot rack shelf. Pretty expensive, however, especially in comparison with fluorescent lights.
