I thought the same as you do, why not try the best and have no regrets but I actually kinda regret buying them now. :-( Not that they wont do a great job with coral just visually they arent as great as you would think.
I;d save the extra money and spend it on some corals or fish instead.
I agree with Carey... I have two units one with full spectrum and one with just blue & white now I wish I would have them change the leds for all blue & white in the full spectrum unit.
