The second is dimmable, the first is not.

Just seen a set of lights at a fish store. Tgey were programmed for cloud cover and lightning.. Lighting wasn't going when I was there. But it was pretty sweet watching it dim out to look like the clouds were rolling over the reef

It's completely silly IMO. Corals don't benefit from lightening. It's mans input on what reef lighting should be. The truth is, corals don't care about lightening storms, and they care less about cloud cover...lol. Corals are much like plants that they need a certain amount of light for a certain amount of time....AND THAT'S IT.
Fish are freaked out by flashes of light.

Your response made me laugh,. ,...we used to have a supermarket over here that had flashing lights and the sound of thunder whenever the sprinkler came on to wash the fresh vegetables on display.,..scared the crap outa me the first time I heard it.
tank wise,. I suppose to some the simulated lightning storm and cloud cover may look kinda cool but as stated above by mr x ,.i'm sure you'd enjoy the effect much more that your fishes would.

If I had that enviable bottomless budget, my dream 2000 gallon reef might have a cloud cover LED routine....to please me. But all the other bases would be covered before the bling was added.

I would not pay those prices for those lights and their gimmicks. One friend bought like 5 or 7 spent $3, 500.00 on them.
