Nano Cube Led Hood or Nano Tuners 3.6?

Would it better better to go with the JBJ Led hood or the Nano Tuners 3.6 retro? They are both relatively in the same price range. The Led hood includes three separate cords (daylight, dawn/dusk, moonlight).

It looks like you get an extra 50 watts of lighting out of the nano tuners, so i would go with that.

Nanotuners came out with a Duo 700 LED driver and it looks pretty awesome, but I don't see it under the drop down menu for the LED drivers. I will have to give them a call or something about it

I might go with either 3-50/50 leds, or 2-50/50 and 1-daylight. 14k look or 20k look?
