  1. California Lightworks - http://californialightworks.com/

A Company out of Southern California that sells top-tier lights which feature a combination of diodes and UVB fluorescent tubes. Performance of their lights are in line with their advertised specifications. Their line of Solar Storm lights can be found on several different sites.

Another California company that sells the G8LED brand and is know for very high customer service and their Optimal 8-Band technology. Their lights produce large yields and have a very efficient design. They offer very competitive pricing and high customer and product feedback ratings.

  1. Advanced LED - http://www.advancedledlights.com/

One of the original LED grow light companies sells their popular Diamond Series grow light which feature optical lenses to concentrate light to a narrower space. The Diamond Series lights have been one of the favorites in the LED market and continue to be a top tier grow light.

Although there are several other companies with good products, our research narrowed the search to these top tier companies. We have been following LED grow lights for several years and find that many companies are only around for just a few years and then disappear. This adds a layer of risk for the consumer so it is important to go with a company that will be around to provide service if and when needed. We have summarized our top picks below:
