I commented on the other thread, but I didn't mention that I believe one company to be making all of these, then resellers branding them with their own names for sale.
Doesn't anyone notice that the bulk of these units are EXACTLY alike except for the names?

The case is the only thing different. The Tao has a gloss black finish and chrome grating to cover the fans. The off brands are a dull black with the fan grate built it the cover. Inside they are identical

I have white ones and black ones, some with chrome grating, and others with the fan venting punched into the metal. Also, different knobs, and different switches, but they are all really the same units. Anywhere else in the world this would be a patent issue...no?

Have you taken a decent look at chinas economy . If they could build an entire economy solely on copyright infringement, theyd name it China

Lighting your reef...Best bang for your buck.

Well I finally bought my light TaoTronics - 120 degree lenses but I am still getting the spot light effect I thought the 120's was not suppose to do that...
Any thoughts?????
Sorry for such a cruddy picture.

Looks pretty good in the pic, the only spot that looks a little bright is the rock peak on the left but since that is closer to the light I think it would be expected

From the picture it looks like you mounted the lights under the canopy...if so then that's your problem.also are the taotronics dimmable?
