Gavita Pro 1700e LED Grow Light Review

Gavita Pro 1700e LED left a very deep impression on us, but we do not recommend it very much, we will talk about it later.

Gavita LED

Great commercial grow light

Gavita Pro 1700e LED Grow Light is very shining and can be used in commercial warehouses (vertical or horizontal), greenhouses and home planting.
This is a high-intensity spectrum LED light, so it can be applied to the entire growth cycle of plants.
Reduce cooling and power consumption
Reason 1: The open 8bars design can be passively cooled to reduce heat accumulation on the top.
Reason 2: LED grow lights have a higher conversion rate than HPS grow lights, and efficiently convert electrical energy into light energy. 645W LED grow lights can be equivalent to 1000WHPS grow lights

Made for multi-tier rack systems, but works in grow tents too

This light is perfect for multi-tier rack systems, as it produces no heat. However, it works just as well in grow tents of 4′ x 4′ or larger.

Reasons not to recommend

1. The price is very expensive. It usually costs US$1,200 to buy one. Other brands, such as the Helenor Compact series, have the same performance at almost half the price.
2. The power cord and controller need to be purchased separately, you have to spend more money
3. Amazon shows out of stock, buying from other platforms requires additional risk

Comparing the two, Helenor Compaact 640W has the performance not inferior to Gavita Pro 1700e, but the price is only half. This is the reason I recommend, because most people don’t want to pay for the brand premium.
