Thinking about LED's..

Soo I've been thinking about what lights I'll get when I upgrade. I'm thinking about going the LED route. They are however my weak area and would like to know what someone who knows about them thought. My LFS has a few fixtures. They have the ecoray 112 and the aquaufo( I believe 90watts?). Both fixtures look nice, although the 2 cords of the ecoray fixture is offputting as I'd have to buy another timer if I wanted to run the whites and blues seperate. Or maybe they're both sub-par fixtures and I should look at something else. Thanks for any input.

I use ecoray 60D. I've had no problems with them but others have that I know. However, they are covered under a warranty. IMO the two chords are better cause you can simulate sunrise/sunset. The ecorays have a great par rating

Yea I'd like the sunrise/sunset, however the timer I have now only has 2 daytime 2 nighttime and 4 constant power outlets..so if I wanted to simulate the sunrise sunset I'd need another timer. Also the ecorays are almost twice as much, which won't sit well with my wife but that's nothing new haha.
