Educate me.
Umm even I didnt research much on the commercially available units.
If yo talk about ray2, it would cost around $100. People have had good results with it.
But as you'll go in the advance world of LEDs, the prices will be $300 +. A unit like this, with sunset/ sunrise controller and 3 different series of lights, (1 white, 1 Royal Blue, and 1 for OCW), it'd definitely cost more than $500.
