Just trying to help him out by letting him know thngs that I learned from reading. He can do what ever he wants like I said I seriously considered these lights for my tank until I found other solutions and I was just sharing those with him. The low quality comment was pointed to the fact that they are a low quality led
it has nothing to do with the fact they are from china truly but there's no arguing they are low quality or else they wouldn't be 175$ and I'm not suggesting the Cree fixtures are high quality but they will be higher quality. The thing that concerned me the most is that I read the fixture is daisy chained and if one bulb goes out the whole panel goes out.
I don't know if all of this was directed towards me, but I assure you, I wasn't being defensive, just stating my first hand experience.
What is it that constitutes "low end"? the price? The bells and whistles?
I think that most LED
fixtures are way overpriced. These seem to be the only ones priced reasonably. By seeing them in person and running them over my tank, I wouldn't consider them low end.
I know multiple people who have AI SOL blues and they are bleaching everything too. The efficiency of the LED
is now a bad thing? People were just raving about halides, and now we find something stronger and it's a fault. what's the point of having something powerful if you can only run it at 30%?
I have a 25" deep tank. a 55 is 21" tall. Are you saying that the extra 4" is a deal breaker for these? In my opinion (and I say this because I don't have a shallow tank like a 21" deep 55) I think you'll be fine.
