The seashine has a 60 by120 reflector which would be the thing to use but is a less efficient reflector and overall lamp. I really liked the idea of a full spectrum, that is something LED really don't have.
Nevertheless from what I can tell the plasma light really doesnt do much better than a t5 HO or CF fixture at the socket and those are full spectrum as well.
I am back to LED and will be giving wingoled a ring. I have to figure out exactly what I would get going with him over the upcoming AI vega or radions. That really would be the same price after all.
This might spark some diy ideas it's the Acan 600 Prism LED
. It's programmable. Here's someone doing a demo
Here's a new and better uploaded vid
I just found out this unit has a lighting mode as demoed in this vid
