Does anyone have a reef capable for light for a 30 gallon tank?

I bought the odyssea 30 inch 4 bulb t5ho and have been very happy with it on my 29 gallon. It was about $70 in e-bay.

Those "reef capable" LED's aren't quite "reef capable". they are mainly just for looks. I'd be willing to bet that 4 lamp T5HO fixture spoonman mentioned would be more potent.
I'm getting good results from these-

Someone linked a dimmable version of this also.
