I find it hard to believe that they are all the same units and they are just rebranded.

They are all the exact same cases, fans, diodes, splash screens, knobs, switches, and hanging hardware. I don't know what else to say.

I understand what you Meant by the statement, and im saying that its hard for me to believe that out of all the prob 1000's of generic led fixtures available that they are all the same. Sure they may share some parts or the casing, but i highly doubt they are all the same. Even if the parts look similar, how are we to know if the company doesnt manufacture their own parts? Id still do my research and talk to previous owners of a fixture before buying it, regardless of how similar it looks to another unit

I have 4 different units from 4 different vendors, and they are all the same. One has the colored LEDs, but other than that, no differences. Same PAR numbers from all also.

I believe he means at what percentage do you run them.
