Samsung Horticulture L2 Linear - Good DIY Option?

I have been researching Linear LED strips for a 125g High tank. While researching, I went down a rabbit whole in the "Herb Grow" community and they all seem love the current Samsung LED's. This particular product seems to be too Cool for their liking, but it seems to look good for planted aquarium use. These aren't cheap (~$45 for 24" strip) but the coverage benefit and simplicity (both wiring and cooling) seems to make it a feasible option.

This may be a good alternative, but my original question remains. Has anyone had experience with this Samsungs Offering. LM301H (the white LED on this board) looks like the defacto standard in Grow Lights right now, and adding a Red LED (6 to 1 Ratio) all on one board is attractive.

you'd be lucky if 1% of planted tank people even heard of them..


Orig Finnex Fuge-ray R had 7000k whites and 660nm reds..
Color combo is really good..


Buildmy led had a discus pattern that was 6500k/660nm red diodes.

There is precedent from the past, enough to sort of answer most of your questions..
From their spectrum plot their whites are nothing too special but do seem to have some blue/green supplementation..
