Looks good! ...Can't wait to get my hands on one!. Hope I didn't let the cat out of the bag to early in the other thread...

If you need a video review of one over a nice tropical vivarium, I work for free or deeply discounted lighting

I wonder how these will compare to BML led fixtures

Can you explain how to dim this light? Is it ok to run it at 40% every day?

looks impressive! I guess this light is one to compete with BML rather than Finnex with the pricing scale.

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.

Marineland Depot had 10% off yesterday so I purchased one of these. Looking forward to the light!

Dang... I want this light too.. I love my Sat+'s and all, but this will drastically expand my possibilities for a rescape in my 60p!

Me too! I been waiting for reason to rescape and I think these lights are hitting all the sweet spot in an LED fixture.

The light has a pretty high PAR considering it's size. I'm pumped about this!
