I've got 3 older radions and they are a good light, and these do look better. and the EcoSmart Live makes it a lot easier to change levels and times.

I'm just waiting for the day they implement the GPS weather feature that the AI hydras have. Weather based on a real location you pick? Yes please.

I have a prebuild version of this light -- it's one of the best lights I've ever used. The new optics really do spread out the light, and the new color ratios are much improved since their previous version which was way too blue. The ecosmart live capabilities work just like the old system. The PAR is high, and well distributed. I will put together a review in the next few weeks, and add a link when done that includes more info...

Would you call it an upgrade to the existing lights? I have two of those on my 4' tank. However, there are some holes in the coverage which I need to fill. Is it worth getting these or I can just get two finnex ray 2 to cover up the gaps for less than the cost of one of these?

thanks

V

What's​ the dimming range on these (0-100%)? Or is there a lower level cut off?

At least on the old gen FW, you can dim all the way down to 0% smoothly.

Nice review.. and not fair.. A XR30 for fw..

I don't think anything you posted was surprising to me. LED fw has been "fumbling" around on spectrum for awhile now and they pretty well nailed it.
to be fair it really has more to do w/ channels than anything else though.

One nit picky point.. not sure if a XR30 is really needed for FW.. It is massive overkill of PAR in a smallish footprint..
Like sbreefs.. but only way more expensive ..sort of.. well on a basic sbreef..

Shouldn't consider this a negative, it just is..
Seeing a PAR spread chart over an area may change my mind.. instictively the 2 puck design is too close together..

Oh and if they would change green to cyan..

Will 2 of these provide full cover on a 120g fatboy tank?

Ha! I was going through this thread and was about to post your review, and you've already done that.
