Led lighting question

Hey I found this on Craigslist wondering if its worth it...http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/for/2850396362.html

What you guys think? Asked the guy for brand and he said there wasn't because he ordered them to put his business name on there? But never really looked at LEDs wondering if this price is good and watts etc for my 55 gl I'm thinking one would be fine or would I need both?

I'd wanna know who made them.... That's just me though. He doesn't have a name but he put his name on them?

"Can't give out that info , I have my own supplier and will be labeling them under my business name" this is what he told me when I asked who made them...kind of not interested anymore but then again if they are good it could be a great deal? Or is it high price?

A company called taotronics makes a fixture that looks very similar to the light your looking at. don't know how good they are but the reviews people wrote gave them a good write up and there not expensive at 189.99 hope this is of some help to you.

Only thing I would add with my Blueline led system that I paid $350 for and is very similar.. Has 2 plugins.. One controls the blues and one for the whites so I can have each on a different timer. This unit looks like it does not have that option and is running you more in cost.. GL

Just so you are not alone I too have been looking at LED fixtures. I can't find one that reasonably priced that has the same features or options my T5HO has. I have come to the conclusion I will order 6 new T5's from BRS on Friday for my 55g
