Apollo Horticulture Purple Sun COB 384W LED Review

Apollo Horticulture Purple Sun COB 384W LED ReviewApollo Horticulture is a familiar name among indoor plant growing enthusiasts, as they produce a wide range of affordable yet high-powered indoor light fixtures. However, in addition to their line of traditional high pressure sodium/metal halide lights, they are actively perfecting LED grow lights. Their latest and greatest LED fixture in our opinion is the Apollo Horticulture Purple Sun COB Full Spectrum 384W LED Grow Light.

LED grow lights have been around for quite some time now. However, up till now they’ve been very expensive and hard to come by in higher wattages. In addition, the efficacy of their color spectrum has been a source of controversy among many die-hard indoor growers. But that was then.

Price and Value

Currently selling for approximately $275, we think the Purple Sun COB 384W LED provides outstanding value. Not too long ago an LED of this power and quality would have cost twice as much, and there are still many LED fixtures that are in this price range that produce only half of the light intensity, and with a less optimal color spectrum. As we said before, Apollo Horticulture is all about value these days, and it shows in this high-tech yet unusually affordable LED fixture.

We suspect that, within 5 years or so, just about all serious indoor growers will be using LED fixtures. They are simply better in every category, and are so much more efficient it’s beyond debate. Till now, their higher prices and relatively lower wattage have kept conventional HID lighting in the game, but the Apollo Horticulture Purple Sun COB 384W LED is precisely the type of lamp that is changing the game. It’s super-intense, generates optimal color values, and is affordable to the average grower. This makes it a no-brainer for the serious grower in our book!
