I use them with good results. I have a 25" deep tank and sps grows nicely on the sand bed.

I ended up getting the taotronics 120 watt dimables. How long do you run your lights every day (whites and blues) and on what intensity? Also what do you have in your tank (as far as corals)? Sorry for the 100 questions but I'm kinda in the dark about this. Thanks

I always say no 2 tanks are alike
what I suggest is raise them up little by little and watch how your corals respond
they will let you know if there happy or not

Mine are mostly the non-dimmable units. The dimmables weren't available when I bought most of mine. Over the main tank I have 3 non-dimmables and 1 dimmable, which is naturally at 100% intensity to match the others. In the frag tank I have a dimmable model running at about 80% blue and the whites at about 30%. in that tank I have some LPS that was having a hard time acclimating, and a LTA that was the same. they are doing quite well now, and I also have various montipora doing well at that level too.
In the main tank I have mostly sps. Some LPS that was able to adjust, as well as a pair of rose bubble anemones.
You can view pictures in my build thread-
