Did you notice that it costs extra to be controllable? That makes those lights 600$ vs 250$ and they will perform the same if you don't have an apex controllable.

What name brand are you refering to? Choose whichever one that works for you, but these are actually the name brands of the cheap chinese LEDs. These don't compare to ecotechs or AIs.
