In my opinion it totally depends on the application and what you prefer. The Kessil lacks some of the new cooler app based control including integrated ramp timing and individual color diode control. The AI has all of this and also has 7 color channels which allow for a customized spectrum to fit what suits your tank best. Although the kessil is basically just blues and whites, the color is spectacular and makes your tank appear almost "ultra HD" in my opinion. Kessils are also known for their incredible shimmer effect they give to a tank due to the fact that they are a single point lensed LED
. If I had the choice, I would do the AI, however, the Kessil has its merits and I could see why someone would choose that as well. I have owned an AI prime for several years now and love it and have gotten to play around with all of AI's product line and really am a big fan of theirs. I have also had the opportunity to get some hands on experience with Kessil's products as well and don't have much bad to say about them either. If I were you I would try and go to a LFS
that has both running and have them show you the features in person.
