I'm starting a new 30g cube and hope to have some soft corals and LPS. Does anyone have any experience with this LED system?

I'm trying to spend around $200 and would like a built-in timer that adjusts day/night settings

Check out reef breeders LEDs, you can get something much better for similar money. Check
Out the "best bang for your buck" lighting thread in this forum for more info.

All of their systems that have controllers are over $320

True but my experience has been that you start with softies and lps and in no time your dying to have sps and an anemone, and then you end up spending more on a newer light.

+1 don't waste your time on the marineland lights! You will be much happier with the reef breeder's. plus $320 for LED's is a great price.

IMO I would check out the Kessil A150 for your tank. You can use a ten dollar timer from the hardware store. IME the more bells and whistles the more that can fail. Especially with electronics.
