low cost HMI equivalent LED lights?

Hey guys!
I'm in the market for LED lights that are equal or better than a 1200w HMI.
Currently, the Nila Boxer at 200w and $3400 for a kit looks like the best deal for high quality, but I'm starting to see a lot of other companies like Ikan putting out 200w LEDs at a much lower price.

Just wondering if anyone has found something HMI-esque in output in an LED for under the price of a Boxer.

Cheers!

Have you seen the Alzo 3000 series? The 3300 draws 300 watts and claims 25000 Lux at 1m. At $835, it's going to be really hard to beat.

I use the low-noise version of the 3200 (200 watt) light. It's got a lot of punch for it's size and draw. Having a Bowens S-mount is very convenient.

Interesting! Never heard of them. How is the build quality? The CRI is pretty low, but so is the price so I guess you can't complain much about that. :)
