Default Catalina T5 + LED for Planted Aquariums

Has anyone had any experience with this light?

It looks like it will run T5 or T5HO with individual switches. In other words, the sky is the limit on lighting intensity and duration. With some fancy timer work, a nearly dawn to dusk cycle would be possible, extending the amount of time that my aquarium would be lit.

I'm also wondering if a simmer effect would be washed out by the T5 lights. Obviously, T5HO+LED would be a little much, but I'm thinking T5NO+LED would be okay with adequate ferts and C02.
