LOL, yes Doug I'm aware of the dimmable term.

The PacSun units are expenisive. I paid ~$2,200 for one master and two slave units. However comparerd to a new 72 inch Giesemann Moonlight Infiniti 3×250W HQI + 4×80W T5 Light Fixture at around $3500 or a 1 year old used one for $2,800, the LEDs were cheaper. The Pac Sun units also offer 400w MH equivalent though the falloff at depth brings that down.

youch! well, maybe i'll try these non dimmable ones first to see if i like them. that ecoray company has a 400 watt halide equivalent as well, so it will depend on what size tank i end up with.

ECORAY 112D Review

All I will warn you about the ecorays 112d model. I purchased two of the ecoray 112ds for a total of $1000.00 two months ago and half of the blue leds in one of the units stopped working. They do have a one year warranty however ecoray WILL charge you the shipping to them but they will ship it back to you. While it's being repaired (they do not replace with a new unit btw) if you do not have "backup lighting source" your corals will be left high and dry. I discussed my concern with ecoray (underwaterworld is the distributer you will have to contact) and they did not have any compassion for their customers with defective products from their company or their customer's corals!!! The did not appear to be concerned or cared about the fact their product was defective only after 2 months of service. After taking the unit from my canopy, paying the shipping to send it back and now waiting no telling how long to get the unit back I will NOT purchase another one. You would think at $500 a pop they would last a long time and now I wonder when the other one will defect.

Thanks for the heads up. Sorry you got stuck with a bum unit. :-( I've rad some reviews on these and apparently they aren't all they are cracked up to be. I looked at getting them last year but passed.

I hope you get your repaired light back quickly! Good luck!!

That's awful expensive at this point. back when this thread was started that was considered fairly cheap, but now you can buy non-dimmable units for $150.00 or so a piece.
