New grower needing help choosing a light

Honestly I'd go with import and DIY unless a local company provides a decent enough warranty.

This isn't a stab at Master's products or company, don't get me wrong. I'd rather get more boards and bits for the same price with a shorter warranty, so I can make more lights if necessary.

If you're importing, spares are gonna be cheap anyway. I would get a board or 2 extra to keep aside just in case.

If you're ordering it locally, there's nothing bad I can say really. You'll have a nice product with a company to go to if it starts giving you shit... But no spares or extras.

Thanks for the advice.

Cheers Dr. Green. Those look decent. To make up 600W worth (I'm currently looking at units for R16K with an IP65 rating), I would need 7 of these in daisy chain. 7 x R2557 = R17 899.  The lights for R16k are nicer than 7 of these put together so I'd rather just buy the plug n play unit with a better warantee. Thanks for confirming that R16k is more or less the right price for buying local 600W LED QBs. Unless anyone can advise another LOCAL online store with better deals?

Might just go with these for my DIY fixture. Free overhaul, nice warranty.

Which ones did you get?

I got 2 of the IP62 Daisy chain.

I wont have a hose pipe near my lights so don't think I need the IP68.
