On the Internet looking at LEDs still before I jump on ordering them.... I came across this light and looked up reviews and found mostly good can anyone say they have tried or know of anyone who has tried them
TaoTronics TT-AL01 they are really cheap priced but I want to know if they will really work for sps

Yes they will work for SPS. Even some SPS on the sandbed. They are very very powerful. Will need a foot or more of room above your tank for hanging if you don't want to fry your LPS.
