Can't wait! I will be doing a YT review on the E-series here in the next week or so, stay tuned. BML show 286 PAR at 6" with a 90 degree lens angle. Ecoxotic show 255 PAR at 6" with 120 degree lens angle. Larger angle matters more than a little extra PAR in this context. Considering 255 at 6" is way more than enough light for any plant. If you were to stretch the Eco angle to 90 it would give off more PAR than 286.
Plus you have programmable memory built right in with no extra controllers or network boxes like other big name brands- ends with Marine. It's more economical, reliable and convenient to have just one remote and an enclosed programmable fixture than it is to hook it up to the cloud and your ipad. Not everyone in the world has smart phones or good internet access, most of us do. I like the trade off, there is way less equipment and overall cheaper than the high end brand I am referring to. Plus I am pretty sure their weather patterns and lighting color combinations beat the competitors... Either way this is without a doubt the best and most innovative planted aquarium capable fixture on the market. Great for Cichlid and Marine tanks as well. I will be using the E-series on my 40 breeder nature aquarium.
