    That's cool, but there are different types of creed leds, there are the XP-E and XT's and XG, some are older and some are newer generation, which means they are better in that they also supply a better PUR (no, not PAR) which stands for useful light energy.

    On their web site they give a full description of the unit with all its specs. Its a very well priced unit and they are planning to get a dimmable unit in future. Compared to doing DIY the cost would be the same and its already finished off well. I will be getting my unit in the beginning of next year.:thumbup:

    From what I gathered with that controller it could be used with pretty much any led unit, diy or bought. Think you would just need an led unit that has a dimmable driver & then that plugs into the controller. Then for the lightening & cloud effects you would need 2 or more drivers running different sets of leds. From the pic I saw it was running 5 sets of leds, so then I would guess that it could run 5 sets of leds each on its on driver, or it could run 5 of the cheaper bought led units.

    Definitely worth the price if anyone has done a diy led build. Adds alot of features for just that little bit more cash.
