I'm so ready for these. Was hoping to be in the testing list but I just missed it.

These seem a ton better than the old models. Full darkness, new legs, reds for plants. I'm sold.

Actually just checked Amazon and they had 3 available finally! I bought 2 36" models. Can't wait to get them in!

There is still one left.... but $150??? That seems like a pretty big price jump for seemingly small differences. I'm interested to see the PAR ratings but I can't imagine it will be much if any higher than the previous version.

$30 jump. My old 24/7 was 121 on Amazon. I'm willing to pay that for the updates myself?

I guess I'm just not that impressed with the new features. And for the 30", which is what I would need, it's $140 + $10 shipping. That's $60 more than the old model is currently.

Well I can say I absolutely love these lights so far. Gonna be interesting to see how well plants do with the new incorporated true reds Ala the planted plus.

Light is so much more reactive than the previous model. The sensor that tells you what mode you're in is great.

Having a 72" tank and having 2 36" models, I thought the factory legs were entirely too tall with the light not resting on any edges. In simply removed them and put some velcro furniture moving pads along the bottom and gave it just enough lift.

My discus look stunning in this light. I was planning on adding a Finnex Vivid light, but no need now!

Hi Finnex,

My thoughts are:

What is the warranty?

Is the unit fully sealed?

Amazon is out of stock but still taking orders, so I've got one backordered for a 24" at $110. Oddly the 30" is only $98.87 backordered... why is it cheaper than the 24"?

Is the warranty stated on the box? If so, what is it?

I can't remember exactly but they definitely upped the warranty from the previous model.
