I have just about finished my first flowering with this light and couldn’t be happier with what I am seeing. I used to use hps lights and tried some led’s, but was always disappointed with the outcome the led’s provided. I took a few years off and decided to start with an all new set up. American made is important so I researched and became convinced that the Solar Extreme with a UVB setup would be the way to go. I was right! This light maintains a 5x5 tent and the results have been undeniable. I highly recommend it over the cheaper foreign junk. I also received a 250 version from my kids for Father’s Day and find it equally as impressive in the 2x4 veg tent.
Great light, better then I hoped for, leaves a big foot print for a small light. Very bright.
Simple to use, hang it at the right height plug it in, and the plants love it. What more can a beginner want.
very impressed and satisfied ,makes growing more easy and produces great results
Great product, great price, made in county so no problems with delivery. Thanks
Gotta wait until my plants enter the flowering stage before I try these lights! they are ultra violet lights so i'll wait.
Negligible heat awesome productivity in a 4x4, using a 6 inch exhaust fan has proven to be a perfect combo. Small places aren't a problem anymore. After using 3 of your 250s for a year now I decided to try your Solar Extreme 500. I really like what I am seeing. No probs at all production wise. Another update at 6 mos Thank You for your products, California Lightworks
Added a 1000 to the already existing 500 and a 250 at onset of flower and couldn't be more pleased. 4th week in and buds are fat and getting fatter. Everything about this company seems A-1, from speedy shipping to customer support. I HIGHLY recommend these light for beginners and pros!
After hanging and setting the timer for two 30 minute periods I went to work. When I returned the aroma was intense. Because the lights come on when I’m gone I couldn’t see that they we working until two days later but each day the flowers were bigger and completely different in smell. Upon confirmation of the lights coming on a big smile came on my face because I knew it was the lights that made the difference. I purchased two of these in order to hang on either side of my SolarXtreme 500, 36 inches above the canopy. The 500 is still at 18”. I recommend buying the kit but ditching the adapter for mounting to the 500. I didn’t do that and could have saved a few bucks if I did. Also the big question after I bought one was where do you put just one UVB without creating a shadow from the main light?
Side note : this light is not made in America and it made me sad because I thought it was made in California.
I’m extremely happy with my choice to get these 550’s! Coupled with the UVB’s, the density was very nice. Stop reading reviews, & BUY IT!!
I have this next to a brand new Kind XL1000 WiFi. The SS1100 makes the Kind look dim. I also bought the UVB bulbs and, a SS275. Nice products.
Totally together customer service delivery and so far lights are very right can’t wait to see finish product. Ordering two more now
I have 6 extreme 500s, self daisy chained 3× 3, on 2 separate circuits with timers, 220 v. Saves money on electric and performs great.
First grow, just hung to dry... didn't use to full potential, and still quite dense! stop thinking and get 1 for every 4x4 u have.
No doubt about the effectiveness of UVB awesome results
