I have not used HIDs and do not see much point to it for the home grower - LEDs make more sense I feel.

if electricity and heat were of no concern, would you still go for LED over HID?

I think a combo of CMH and LED would be killer. Personally the heat would be a plus. Been lucky to get over 20c in my tent this winter running qbs (even cranked up)

HID can be nice in winter, in summer though - different story with all the heat waves.

I’m using HID at the moment (400w hps) , the only reason I opted for it was because it was a lot cheaper than going the LED way , I’m planning on switching to a COB setup but that would be quite a stiff investment for a hobby
