Decided to upgrade my light. The beamsworks was still decent after 3+ years but the first row of 5 LEDs recently started to flicker and I wanted something more intense since I plan on using bromeliads again.
At work I've been using these agroled t5 replacements for every one of the t5ho bulbs that go out. I noticed the spectrum is 5500k and prefer the sleek design. They are also very bright and have longer life than regular t5hos.
The fixture is the cheapest single t5 I could find. I've had good luck with SunBlaze.
41W 4900lumens 5500k
SUNBLAZE t5ho bulb
54w 5000lumens 6500k
100 more lumens but +13watts, more heat, blue color and shorter life
Pros: much brighter than the beamsworks. Penetrates a lot farther. Color spectrum is very much like bright sun. Looks better IMO than 6500k. Clean wiring, no longer need a bulky power supply like the beamsworks. Very affordable
Cons: should have gotten a fixture with a reflector since there's a lot of scattered light (easy fix). Wish the cord and fixture were black to match my set up lol
I work with a lot of grow LEDs for different purposes and situations. I feel this is the best bang for your buck solution for a compact, rack style set up
