    Hi @tyson , what I can safely say is that all my customers that bought our units are happy. Even so that when they upgrade they get the same unit but the upgraded bigger units. The only units I know that has been sold is tanks being shut down or upgraded.

    The Kelvin on the whites are 9k and the blues are 460nm. I normally order them 60 blue/40 white split. Gives a crisp blue tinge.

    These contain the XP Range, 3W each, 9k white, 460nm blues, 80deg optics, passively cooled, unit runs extremely cool when at 100% intensity.

    I didn’t fully open he link,my mobile broadband is so slow, it got to 17 meg down loaded and that took ages, but it sounds like a good fitting.
    Heaps more efficient then my old xr-e diodes,80 percent to be precise.

    I have spoken to some guys that have carried out some testing on sps and they say the best results for red colouration came from true green diodes combined with the white and the blue diodes.
    I am going to get a few for my old fitting to try along side my blue and white diodes and see how it goes.

    I get near reds in acans easily, but sps,the closest I can get to red is pink and orange.
    This is an acans near red from my tank; I will add four greens soon to see where my sps can get.

    I just checked our email and there is nothing there?
    Just reply notifications and other regular stuff.
    No matter, the xp range are cool and 80 degree optics are what most of our guys use as well.
