Some guys at reefcentral were saying this would be better suited then the marine orbits and is within my price range.

that is the same unit I have had for about a year now.
No complaints whatsoever

works great, full spectrum, dual channels, dimmable, runs very cool.
If I had one "complaint" though trivial, the optics are a little narrow and I do get a slight "spotlight" effect from the red and green LEDs, but I also acknowledge part of that is because my lights are only 10" above the water, a few inches higher and I suspect the spotlight would disappear.
my tank is 20" deep, so it will definitely work for you.
I run it at about 60% white, 100% blue.
I lose a bit of intensity on the sides, mines a 50 gallon, but in your 29 it should be just the right coverage.
overall a good light, I think you would be satisfied with it.
It will easily grow any type of coral you wish to keep.
