    I'd like to know what results you get with the Sunritek, naoki. I'd really like to switch over to LEDs, but I've been waiting for them to come down in price and go up in efficiency.

    Here are two Heli's growing under 4 of the CREE LEDs running around 5-6W total power (1.25-1.5W each) lighting an area of 7" X 12". 2 Cool White and 2 Warm white LEDs. The kit is a http://www.rapidled.com/4-led-solderless-moonlight-kit/ with a $10 heatsink (they no longer sell ), add with that 4 lenses and the entire lighting was around $37 + shipping. I generally order over $200 for free shipping so I can avoid that added cost. Oh and you would need some sort of thermal adhesive if your don't have any to "glue" the lenses to the leds (http://www.rapidled.com/arctic-alumi...rmal-adhesive/ or just hit up a DIY type local computer store and buy some for much less $$$).

    These Heli's are under a "test" environment so don't hold the health of the plants as a factor. The coloration is why I'm posting photo's. If your interested in the "test" it is located here http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...un!?highlight=

    Keep in mind this is from 4 LEDs using at a maximum of 6W of power lighting a 7" X 12" area.
