Our Advanced Platinum LED P600 review left us with a “best of” feeling after our harvesting with this LED grow light. After purchasing and setting up our grow tent complete with the easy to install Advanced Platinum P600, we had a feeling that this light would be an instant reviewer’s choice.
Advanced Platinum LED Review
The Platinum LED P600 uses quality LED light chipsets made by Bridgelux and Cree with a coverage area of around 22.5 feet at 18 inches. We averaged the plants at about a square foot per plant, but see the potential for lighting much closer to the plant when starting out with your infant plants with the ability to raise them as they begin to sprout upwards. With the Advanced Platinum easy ability to raise and lowered with the provided hangers this should not be to difficult. We, however, decided to play it safe and keep the LED’s at the recommended specifications for an accurate review inside our grow tent.
According to Platinum LED’s grow light specifications, the max range is supposed to be at 3.75 by 6 feet. Keep in mind, that the growth of your plants will be better if you don’t spread the light out. Rather, concentrate your lighting at around a 4×2 area and your results will blossom. Using 2 to 3 of these P600 in a grow space of that size seemed to do the trick for our grow review of the Advanced Platinum Series P600 LED grow lights, but this might be overkill in certain situations. Full spectrum lighting is always better when you have more and not less lighting involved.
The lighting provides an even spread along with decent penetration throughout the grow tent. We did have to make some minor adjustments, but again, the ease of elevating the pulleys made this task simple in set up through the full maturity of our plants.
- When switching between intensities, keep a close eye on your plants as to not “shock” them.
- If “light shock” occurs raise your lights a couple of inches to avoid “burn”
Best Full Spectrum Light On The Market
The LED’s on this solid and well built full spectrum grow light can take your growing through all stages of plant cycles from veg to bloom. A simple toggle of the bloom/veg switch makes the job very simple. That way you can worry more about your plant’s soil, watering, and humidity.
The full spectrum, 12 band LED grow lights are capable of rich UV lighting to high-intensity IR. The Platinum Series keeps a high output efficient light on your plants continuously for growing plants that yield excellent crop production. A light that can sustain efficient lighting and that stays relatively cool while growing is important. Another reason to love the Advanced Platinum P600!
With intense lighting, it is important to have a simple way to raise the lighting in case light “shock” affects your growing. This way it makes it easy to lift your LED’s up as to not hurt your crop.
Light Intensity With Advanced Platinum P600
This specific LED grow light is very intense but runs cool.
Typically running about 3 times the intensity of generic LED grow lighting, the penetration is much stronger than ordinary LED’s on the market. You can actually see the light moving though the plant canopy down to the smaller buds below. Of course, you always want a good pair of UV protecting glasses rated for indoor growing with full spectrum lighting. We recommend the Apollo Horticulture UV400 LED Grow Light Room Glasses for Intense LED. They look cool and protect your eyes from the harsh UV’s of this full spectrum LED light.
The great trade-off incorporated into this intense LED light, is the whisper-quiet fans that keep the system cool while consuming a fraction of the electricity that comes with indoor growing. Although this light is a bit more pricey upfront than generic LED’s, it will save you money through the growing life span of your plants, keeping your costs down is important as most growers know that prices can add up with the many items you need when growing indoors.
Combing the fans with the intensity of light output is what makes the Advanced Platinum P600 atop contender for the best LED grow light available on the market. You won’t need to purchase any fancy inline fans on top of this light, in order to cool down your grow tent, unless you live in a warmer climate of course. The overall cost of your complete grow room kit will be substantially lower by omitting items you will not need in this case.
Along with great light output, easy setup, and veg/bloom selection, this light also comes with a very good customer service channel as well as being backed by a 5 year limited warranty. Compare this with standard HPS bulbs, the savings pile up.
The Advanced Platinum P600 is designed to replace the natural sunlight that plants have evolved with over thousands of years. By bringing your grow operation inside, you eliminate many factors that can harm your plants such as insect infestations and bad outdoor weather not suitable for growing.
The Best Of LED Lighting – The Platinum P600 Advanced Series LED Grow Light
The only thing I would imagine holding people back is this LED grow light is a bit more pricey on the front end, but do keep in mind the savings you get from low energy bills and time-saving features as we previously discussed. We did purchase this LED from Amazon at a great discount at the time of publishing this article so keep an eye out for sales on the Advanced Platinum LED’s.
The overall reason to purchase this LED grow light is simply the results we achieved with it. Like most growers, it is all about great results after harvest and if that means using an affordable light like this combined with its easy to use interface then there is no convincing we have to do. The result speaks for themselves. Plus, backed by its industry-best warranty, you don’t have to fear the worst if your LED’s malfunction in any way. Just pick up the phone and contact Advanced Platinum customer service. They are always pleasant to talk to and can answer a multitude of LED questions even if there is nothing wrong with your LED’s
