That's a loaded question IMHO. There are ALOT of LEDs out there. Depends on of you want all the bells and whistles etc...

I have the AI SOL BLUE LED fixture with the controller.

+1 there are a lot of variations in LED's, I have run AI Sols, did fine went back to T5s on my 150 and they have better growth than the AI. That's just my 2 cents.

That's a pretty poor endorsement of those AI fixtures.

Hey they work great! But as I stated I did not receive any greater growth than with t5s, but it was also a lot cheaper to install t5s instead of LEDs. I will say the LEDs are nice because of cooler temps, and lower energy costs, but I am not sure if they are all worth the hype IMO.

Wow never heard anything bad about the AI's before. Interesting. What did you have them set at? Ramp up? Ramp down? What were your blue, whites and royals set at? I'm having nothing but success.
