Generally, I've heard that blue (>6000K or metal halide) light is best for vegetative growth, and red (<3000K or high pressure sodium) light is best for flowering/fruiting. LED's usually have blue and/or red lights. Reading Amazon reviews, it seems like you get what you pay for. Some are less that $30, but the reviews say that they're completely worthless, while some are over $1000, but the reviews are phenomenal. I've talked a lot about this with the owner of my local hydroponics store (Home). He said he bought a Kessil, but after testing it under a light meter, decided not to sell it. He said that some brands he tested put out lots of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) at one specific distance, but much less at other distances. Others were more stable across different distances. In practical terms, this means that the top of your plant might do really well, but the rest of it won't, unless you get an LED whose PAR remains stable across distances. PAR is really what plants use. Lumens are just what humans see. More lumens usually means more PAR, but not always.
