Quick Summary
The BESTVA 1000w LED Grow Light is a powerful, no-frills LED grow light.

Its popularity is down to the fact that it offers so much power and PAR output for such a small price. It’s able to do this by omitting “nice to have” features such as optimization switches for the veg and flower stages, or the ability to daisy chain.

If you are looking for a simple but powerful LED grow light with high PAR output that will take your plants from veg – bloom and supercharge your crop, then you can’t go wrong with this light.

Editors note: f you’re looking for a grow light with a little more functionality ( such as veg and bloom switches ) you can always upgrade to their higher end Reflector Series ( see below for more information )

BESTVA 1000W LED Grow Light Review

The dual-chip LEDs mean that each light provides superior energy, compared to single chips, while keeping power consumption relatively the same, eliminating the need for additional grows lights in most cases.

The LEDs manage to hit the full RGB spectrum, simulating natural sunlight, providing proper care and nourishment to a lot of different species of plants.

The BESTVA DC Series 1000W LED Grow Light features aluminum panels, something important given the nature of the machine. Aluminum is the metal of choice in the case because it manages to keep it relatively sturdy and lightweight since it’s a suspended appliance.

Furthermore, aluminum is great for dissipating heat, so using it both in the cooling system and in the casing will deliver better cooling results.

The 185 real watts that the BESTVA produces are enough for most home growing projects, a single device producing enough light for a 4×4 foot area. Because of the full-spectrum nature of the device, the IR and UV lights will allow the user to grow bacteria-free plants, making it a safe and value pick.

The product comes in three different variants: the 1000W standard, a 600W less powerful version (with 125 real wattages) and a 1000W smart purchase. The 600W isn’t much of a pick, since it’s a significant downgrade in power delivery, translating into weaker, less developed plants.

The Smart Series, on the other hand, uses a better light spectrum, 432 watts and a smartphone app which allows DIMMs and programs to be used in different stages of the plant’s development.

The Smart version comes at a reasonably higher price point but does offer quite a lot more features. This is an interesting choice for those that are willing to break the bank a bit in order to get better growth results. With that said, the lack of redundancy is a real issue, as a malfunction can ruin the whole LED board instead of just the faulty one, destroying the entire machine.

While the purchase is protected by a three-year warranty, grow lights are something essential in completing a plant’s development, so being unable to use one for an indeterminate amount of time is something to consider.

Verdict

BESTVA have managed to make a well-balanced grow light. The BESTVA DC Series 1000W LED Grow Light comes with no compromise in regards to power efficiency, with some shortcuts taken in developing utility features. The lack of a dimmer isn’t going to do much, but it is annoying. The relector series model solves this, but it costs considerably more
