Adding LEDs to your grow room can be a very wise decision and the results will be very rewarding if you get a high performance light and go with a company who can provide top notch service whenever needed. We researched countless number of LED grow light companies and provided our results here. Each of these companies have several different products. We chose the medium sized lights from each company and tried to pick lights that are similar to each other in terms of coverage area and performance to give you an apple to apple comparison.

  1. California Lightworks –

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.

  1. G8LED –

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 –

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:
