The Fluence Spydr 2 series LED Grow Light
Over the past 5 or so days I've been going over grow lights like it was a college research project. I've landed on the conclusion that Fluence is the industry leader in LED grow lights, and really, grow lights period. From what I have heard about this companies lights is that they stand above the competition in terms of product quality to a level that clearly separates them from the pack.

Testimonials are where it's at, and this is a strong one here. I think it's good to see what people who use the products think about them.
I can't find anyone saying anything bad about these lights. Highly efficient, better yield, better quality, what more could you really ask for?
The problem is the price tag. I have heard from a lot of people you want a PPFD between 700-1000 µmol/m2/s to product really high quality cannabis. Their hobbyist model starts at $880 and only gets you an average of 550 µmol/m2/s. The 2p Model gets you an average nearly double that, roughly around 1000 µmol/m2/s. The 2p is a $1400 light.
Alibaba knock off
Someone found me an Alibaba knock off of the Spydr 2p light. With shipping this would run just a bit under $700, which would be half the price of the Fluence model of the light. What would you go with? Is it a risk to buy from a Chinese manufacturer? Is it worth saving $700? Let me know what you think.
