Features & Working Results :- Viparspectra 1200W LED Grow Light

Well, judging a book by its cover never serves you with the moral of the story, and same way one shouldn’t make any decision just by looking at the raw figures mentioned in previous section of this Viparspectra 1200W Review.

So, now, let’s dive deep into Viparspectra 1200W where we’ve explored and researched on all the essential pointers that are going to play an essential role in your decision making process.

  • Scientific Design & Quality Build – Good Enough For Durability.

Firstly, viparspectra is a brand based out in china. So, many people might think that Chinese products are cheap. Well, here your perception has been proven wrong by viparspectra.

Yeah, Viparspectra 1200W Features a  sturdy and solid build  and the design of this entire panel has been done both performance and durability in the mind.

Body Build - Viparspectra 1200 Watt LED

So, yeah, it is strong enough to rely when it comes to long term usage.

Also, we just loved the square shaped design because according to many expert’s square or circular design of a panel is good for even spreading of produced light compared to a rectangular shape.

  • Spectrum, Bands, Wavelengths – Measuring Quality of LIGHT.

We’ve seen many people asking “Can we use white light for raising indoor plants?

Well, one could use white light but growth rate and yield won’t be as you might have expected.

And, that’s the reason why majority of indoor gardeners aim for a full spectrum light where all the vital wavelengths that are found in real sunlight are available.

Now, if we talk about spectrum in this viparspectra 1200W Review then it produces a full spectrum light.

Moreover, there are more than 12 bands are observed in its spectral graph. You can see all those band in below image.

12 Full Spectrum Band - Viparspectra Reflactor 1200 Watt LED Grow Light

And yeah, if you’re interested in knowing the available wavelengths of Viparspectra 1200W LED grow light then it includes  9 different wavelengths ranging between 440nm to 660nm for blending of Red & Blue light.

Moreover, IR at 730nm is also presend and for balancing mildness and for proper mixture white and light purple light at 3000K and 7500K respectively are present in viparspectra 1200W LED grow light.

  • PAR Potential, Density & Coverage – Grow Big.

Usually, plants need a specific amount of density in order to keep their growth process on track.

This specific amount of density could be measured using PAR or PPFD measurements.

As far as this Viparspectra 1200W LED Review is concerned, we’d like to state that this grow light is capable of  delivering 870 uMol  right in the center point of its placement.

Par Value - ViparSpestra V1200 LED Grow Light

Moreover, quality light is being spread in the diameter of around 3.5’ where plants could get decently absorbable light to keep process of photosynthesis going.

Also, this grow light comes with two separate mode switches so you won’t be required to change its height frequently.

Ideal positioning of light should be at the height of 18”-24” which further depends on the plant’s current growth and health.

So yeah, for this ideal height placement one could achieve coverage for an area of around  3.5’X3.5′  during vegetation and during blooming if you place light closer to the plants then it reduces to  3’X3’ .

Coverage - Viparspectra 1200W LED Grow Light Review

For a light priced under this price line this is not so great results, but yeah, this is ideal and acceptable results in terms of coverage for a light in this price range.

  • Power Requirements & Consumption – What We Have To Say Here?

Well, a lights initial pricing don’t help in anyway to make a beneficial choice. Yeah, if a product is available to you for just 100 bucks and it is resulting into massive figures on your power meter then that’s definitely a bad choice.

So, what we found here in Viparspectra 1200W LED grow light’s case is that it sucks on  average 520W for delivering best results when both veg and mode switches are on ON mode.

Well, this is higher than its competitors like king plus and mars hydro. But, upon testing we found that those light’s PAR outputs are disappointing compared to what you get in this panel.

Moreover, growth rate is better in viparspectra compared to its competitor brands. So, to conclude it in this Viparspectra 1200W Review, we’ll say that if you’re expecting an energy efficient light and ready for extending overall growth timing then this won’t be an ideal fit.

Moreover, plant’s compatibility is also better in viparspectra 1200W so, if you could grow one more plant in it and achieve results 2 weeks earlier than others then this one is definitely not a bad choice.

  • Safety Standards, Daisy Chain – Some Good, Some Bad.

Viparspectra is brand known for quality and their expertise in producing safe and eco friendly products.

Yeah, this product by viparspectra is certified by UL standardization and you could rely on its safety measures.

UL Certified - Viparspectra 1200 Watt LED

Moreover, it’s completely non-hazardous and eco friendly LED grow light where all environmental factors has been taken into utmost consideration.

However, if you’re expecting daisy chain port in your next grow panel then there is a bad news for you. Yeah,  it neither features a daisy chain port nor a power switch

So, one could only control this panel with help of  mode controllers available  on the product.

Also, we’d like to state it here in this Viparspectra 1200W review that as it’s a high end product with large coverage potential you might not require a daisy port as long as you’re planning to grow in a 4’X4’ grow tent.

  • Heat Management – Fabulously Cooler Stuff In Grow Space.

Cooling being an essential factor from plant’s safety point of view, we pay utmost attention on a product’s cooling abilities.

So, Viparspectra V1200 1200W Full Spectrum LED features  4 highly reliable and stunningly working cooling fans  on the backside of panel from where they dissipate the excessive heat produced inside the panel body.

Also, a scientifically designed advanced aluminium heat sink is equipped on the panel to keep heat dissipation on track.

Our experts tested this grow light for 10 hours constant usage and temperature inside grow space as well as on the panel was remarkably stable.

Yeah, a bit of heat is ideal but it just won’t your plant canopies and that’s what matters.

However, one of our connection who’ve used it in past reported that after a year’s usage its fans will start making a bit of noise and one might require to deal with it.

  • Support & Reliability – Get The Best of The Both The Worlds.

Viparspectra 1200W LED grow light comes with  3 year’s US based local warranty  and  30 days satisfaction or return  guarantee.

However, we’ve verified that their return rates are very low due to the quality of light this product delivers to its user’s plants.

Also, their support team is very friendly, humble and kind; so, you should expect quick response to your concerns from their side.

What Resists Few People From Going For Viparspectra 1200W LED Grow Light?

As we stated in the beginning of Viparspectra 1200W LED Grow Light Review, our opinion regarding this full spectrum LED grow light is going to be completely unbiased. And, that’s the reason we’re not intending on telling you the dark sides of this LED grow light in this review.

Well, there are mainly two things that we didn’t liked about this grow light.

Firstly, Viparspectra 1200W LED’s power pulling is a bit more compared to others as already stated. Well, from quality perspective this light is great but still more than 500W electricity is not just ideal and could result in higher cost in long term.

And second thing that we didn’t like about V1200 model is the report we got from our friend ken regarding noisy behaviour after a year’s working.

However, apart from these 2 facts, we liked almost everything in viparspectra 1200W model.

What Makes Viparspectra 1200 Watt LED Grow Light Worth To Have Choice?

If you’re asking for two topmost reasons to go for this light in this viparspectra 1200W review, then all we’d like to mention is its build quality and performance.

Yeah, we agree that it’s not so great in performance when it comes to power pulling but if you look at average yield results that we’ve verified among 100’s of users then that’s best among all in its competition.

Yeah, all the panels in its competition are averaging 4-6 oz. of yield while it takes that figure to almost double.

Secondly, we liked dual switching mechanism. Yeah, nowadays many panel are eliminating this feature and I personally don’t like it when I come across absence of it in an LED grow light.

It’s eases the process of phase shifting and also eliminates hassle of back and forth height changes.
