Marineland LED fixtures

Does anyone have one of these and do they work well. I was looking into the 36-40 something double brights. I have a cichlid tank with no plants. Primary concerns - are the bulbs replaceable or am I SOL if the burn out, does the light look like a bunch of spotlights, and will it adequately light a 90 gal tank. Thanks.

I had a couple of them that came with some used tanks I purchased and figured I'd use them since they're free, but after a couple of days I still hated them. I've always used T5HO lighting and I could configure the bulbs to my taste but with these everything seemed harsh and yellowish. They aren't very bright compared to other similarly sized T5 fixtures but in the end I hated their spectrum. This goes for the single and double bright fixtures as both were included.
