Maxspect G2 170W or Key K3 LED

I am having a tough time deciding between these two LED light fixtures. Anyone have any idea which is better?

Maxspect G2 170W
New Generation Maxspect Programmable Aquarium LED lighting, G1, G2, Maxspect, Maxspect G2, Maxspect G1,

or the Key K3 LED
Key Aquarium LED Lighting

I haved a mixed reef including SPS corals.

Not everyone is a DIYer. Some have no skills, others are too busy with other priorities, and some prefer the convienience of buying COTS products with warranties, and hopefully more capability than a typical DIY would bring you. Compare the typical DIY, or most COTS to the PacSun units. I have the earlier model of the BT-EX using 120 - 1w leds.
