I'm comparing how it grows plants and what it looks like to the eye, not that it's RGB. There have been many comparisons with the onf flat and the ada/twinstar. Who cares what the tech is, only what it can do. Your saying lack of color channel is a problem but you praising ada/twinstar and you can't adjust anything. On the onf flat you can adjust color temp and intensity.

Does the app on this light really suck as bad as Iíve read from other reviews? I stumbled on Chihiros facebook page and saw a good amount of comments regarding the app flat out not working and some other comments about the green leds not staying lit. Part of the selling point for me about this light is the price difference and the tech and power when comparing it to the twinstar s series. They seem like similar aluminum builds now but the Chihiros has more power still and for less $$.

But is there really an advantage to having the app if it is so incredibly buggy though? I feel like once I dial in a setting that worked, I wouldnít change it. Does my fish tank really need all that control with my phone though? Iím currently using a Fluval 3.0 and while I like not having to jam an extra timer on my power strip, I donít actually use the app as much as I thought, but the light has been near bulletproof reliable, I just donít love the colors as much.

Donít think Iíll ever be able to make my mind up. The warranty on the WRGBII and the Twinstars suck too IMHO. When you pay north of $200 on any light you want to at least have the confidence that it is going to work.

Have any of the twinstar s series owners had any performance issues with their light? I know the wrgb II is more powerful but Iím not going to run it full power over my 60p.

Awesome!! Thatís great to hear. I ended up ordering one. I reached out to greenaqua in Budapest and asked them about the light specifically because they carry them and if they have had any issues with them. They highly recommend this light and are very pleased with them. Iím looking forward to getting mine. I ordered the shade attachment just in case and found a great price for both the light and shade from a business in Colorado that carries them. Should out to AquaRocks Colorado. Found them doing a facebook marketplace search. Iím waiting for their shipping container to be released from customs here in the US.
