Well looks like he decided on a Mars Hydro, but here are my additional 2 cents.
In my head when he said $50-200 range I figured he'd want the best he could afford. The Kingbrite uses components that are top of the line vs whatever the heck Marshydro uses on their budget line. Samsung 301h diodes and Meanwell driver with a dimmer. More light per watt, 90 more watts, and the components are quality all for 40ish more dollars after shipping.
Also that Yescom 225 is questionable, I'd rather someone go with a Sansi bulb than that thing.
I like my marshydro so much I got rid of the 1000 model and upgraded to the 2000 since I got a bigger grow tent.
I’m not saying your advice was bad in any way, just that it really comes down to how someone wants to use it. For example, if you’re just lighting up a few plants on a rack for a quarantine area, maybe a cheaper one would be ok, even if it is a yescom. For some folks $30 is a lot of money, for others it’s disposable...
Also, some folks like to buy something just because it’s on a storefront on Amazon, versus Ali ...
But thanks for your input, because I wouldn’t have learned about kingbrite if you didn’t reply.
