So far they are pretty nice. I like the clean look, and the coverage with 2 of them is decent for a 60P. They give med-high light for a 24"x9" section of the tank. The one drawback is that the 60P is 24"x12". For me, this is ok, because the background grows too fast anyway and those rotalas don't really need high light. So, I aimed them at the front 9" of the tank and they have pretty good coverage. The temperature is 10K though, so they are a little white for my taste. Not blue though, but my sakura cherry shrimp lost some of their red coloring with the new light.
