Sorry to dredge up a slightly aged thread, but just wanted to express my own frustration over this mess. I bought the new planted+ cc on Amazon last month. Been waiting on that for a while, and I finally noticed enough LEDs going out on my much older Ray model, to justify the purchase. The Amazon listings were confusing; it kept going out of stock, and mainly I didn't want to accidentally buy the older model, and there was no mention of "V2" in the listing. So I even checked the model number on the Finnex site and confirmed the "KL-C" was the V2 I thought I wanted. I happily ordered and received it. Then I set it aside for a bit until I could make time to design and rescape my tank.
Fast forward to today, when I'm ready to get started on that rescape. I had a brief moment of doubt as I unboxed the light, so I just searched the model number, KL-C30A, to make sure I got it right. That's when I found this thread and discovered my misfortune.
Seriously, Finnex. The product listing on the website have changed. The Amazon listings have changed. A month ago, on June 2 when I ordered, I don't recall any mention of KLC and CRV options on Amazon. There was no distinction made that there was a lesser model and a "better" model available. I believed I was ordering the latest and greatest that Finnex had to offer. Granted, I wasn't expecting the greatest LED light known to man, but I did believe I was getting all of the available features that Finnex puts into their lights. I was pumped about that.
Now, even though I think I still have a great customizable light for my planted tank, I can't help but feel a little disappointed that I didn't order what I thought I ordered—and all because of confusing merchandising and a modified Amazon listing.
I haven't turned the thing on yet, and I would send it back, but I'm now a week over the 30 day return period. Oof.
Anyway, that's the end of my rant. I'm glad they have the listings corrected and more clearly distinct (with a product line comparison table) now. I just wish they had fixed their listings before I decided to order. Alas. Back to cleaning my new sand and setting up this new, slightly less red, light.
