i haven't seen folks saving tons of money building fixtures either. not if you use the right components. you might save a hundred bucks on a roughly 800 dollar purchase. you are going to want something with 3 watt LEDs and also something that's dimmable. then you eventually want to be able to sell it when you are done with it. imO
Thanks. I'm leaning back towards the 6 bulb t5 HO
fixture my LFS
has. Independant blue and white control, 1 cord lol, and I know its a good lighting system. I've also read that when comparing LED
's to t5's, the savings on your electricity bill isn't all that noticable.
