LED Question..... Is this a good light?

I'm wondering if I can use this over a 10 gallon tank. Will it support corals? Even SPS? Check it out:

225 LED's totaling 33w = aprox 0.15w per LED. They don't have the "punch" to penetrate water. I doubt they are powerful enough for corals and definitely not SPS corals, IMO.

Just when I thought lighting for a 10 gallon would be cheap! Any suggestions for LED for a 10 gal? Maybe I'll go T5?
