Which LED Light Fixture is Better for Live Plants?

Which of these two fixtures would be better for a live planted tank?

Beamswork DA FSPEC LED Aquarium Light Pent Freshwater 0.50W (120cm - 48") https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LFF07XS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_K6X6Bb19GGTQM

OR...

Thanks in advance!

I looked at Beamswork when I set up my last tank. I decided to go with Finnex FugeRay Planted+ and I couldn't be happier. The plants are beautiful and the root systems, after three months, are phenomenal.

I know this brand isn't one of your above options, but I recently picked one of these up to replace a ' way too bright Finnex Ray2' on my tank. It's the same thing as a Finnex Planted + 24/7, at a much cheaper price. Works great, and plants are growing fine. It's crazy I bought a $40 light to replace a $100 light ! The other benefit is the Vivagrow has a row of red leds, which made a difference in fish and plant coloration, where the Ray2 just washed everything out in white light. Just another option to look into. So far, So good. There are lots of led options nowadays, and if you no longer have to pay big $$ for them. Sorry to babble

Good Luck !
