Twinstar II vs the Twinstar older models.

Twinstar II seems to the only models being made available now. I am referring to their eu site: https://twinstareu.com/e-line/

However some retailers seems to be keeping some older models: e.g. https://www.sagaraquarium.com/produc...60cm-aquarium/

There are some differences in the color temperature, the dimension etc. I am not able to find any references to the Twinstar 1 vs 2 pros and cons.

Are there any body who has tried both versions and can share some advice on the key changes? Would it be ok to still go ahead with the older model?

Actually your links had both answers..
Twinstar 6500K 1600 Lumens
TS II 7000k 1820 Lumens..

One needs to be careful they get the adjustable model vs fixed legs.

Thanks. Would going ahead with the Twinstar 6500K 1600 lumens be good choice for a high energy planted tank?
