I purchased this light over LED fixtures because of the versatility it gives me in color selection. Having the ability to change out bulbs for different spectrum's while still maintaining par levels is great! I also purchased this for my planted aquarium, and in the future if I decide to go saltwater I simply need to change the bulbs out, and not purchase a new light. I really wanted the programmable dim-able version of this light but didn't trust the life of the ballast. I think while the overall build quality is good their is room for improvement. For example adding an a additional 2 power cords for a total of 4 channels would have allowed finer control, and switching the fans to Noctua fans would have made them completely silent. Also whats up the AC/DC converter box for the fans? Couldn't we have found a more elegant solution? Still, hands down the best light for the price. I feel other brands solutions look cheap or function cheap falling apart further down the road. 4/5 stars. WB
