Do you personally have any experience with it? Especially the new one? I dont really care about the programming function
No basing it on it's flexibility and higher lumens..
Only "advantage" of the Nicrew is the 660nm diodes but boils down to a "typical" white/red/blue unit w/ manual dimming.
Oddball 20V DC power supply meaning not as easily replaced .
Power supplies are generally a weak point in any cheap-ish LED .
NOT sure of what voltage the Hygger runs at atm so it may be a wash.
Found it.. 15v..also "odd"..a wash.
Well Meanwell have fairly easy to find 15V power supplies .. 20V out of the box..Not so easy.
I look at a light and ask myself which one would I build.
Both have enough photons to grow plants.
The Hygger has enough programmable "points" (need 8 points) to do a siesta period..Not my cup of tea but
like I said.. flexible.
Hygger add cyan which hits the carotenoid absorption band a bit and adds a missing or short supply visual brightener..
I'll do a deeper look but see the Nicrew as nothing really special..
Is the Hygger worth more $'s?
no whites.. 6500k whites in most low level lights are usually awful in color, either greenish or yellowish.
W/out seeing the light though??
Going on odds here.
As an example Finnex usess 7000k whites that are pretty free of toning (yes I've used them) and red/blue
Beamsworks run 6500k only in some fixtures. Most find them too yellow.
Runs sort of standard RGBA to create "white" w/ cyan to boost color rendering index to 89.
No inv. channel control except for night light.
IF you want a moonlight choice of color is really an advantage.
Personally IF I ran one cyan or very pale white would be preferred.
Confusing programming which is customary to most Chinese software.
That you need to decide really.
People are sensitive to some colors both positively and negatively so you would actually have to see the, no matter what anyone says.
You asked between the 2 and that's my take..
