Wave-Point LED

So, I went ahead and bought them. Very nice light. My first LED. Using it on my 12 gallon planted rimless.
This light is very bright. I love the shimmering affect. And it brings out the colors of my fish and plants. One week now and no complaints. One thing tho, I wish Wave-point would have gave the lights parameters.

Cheers,

There are various reflector styles out there, some with 2 clusters of LED's, Most with SMD led, some with CREE(more $$). every 10 watts yields about 800-900 lumens.
cool, thanks a bunch,

Kind of expensive for what your getting, I'd just get a RAY II if I'm spending that kind of money. It doesn't tell you the output, but it should be around 1000 lumens, which you can get for $12 on ebay (just not in a sleek clamp on format).
