bridgelux neutral white LEDs

I posted this in the lighting forum but didn't get much of a response. Has anyone put together a DIY LED fixture using the Bridgelux neutral white LEDs? What are you impressions regarding the visual color?

The price is certainly quite attractive compared to Crees, and I'm planning a low light setup with a relatively shallow tank so I don't think I need the really high power of an XM-L. I'm thinking of a fixture composed primarily of the Bridgelux neutral white with a couple of Ocean Coral Whites thrown in to provide a better spectrum for the plants.

Any thoughts?

Do you have a link to a data sheet for the Bridgelux neutral white LEDs? It is hard to guess what they will do without either having tried them, which I haven't, or having a good data sheet.

I have 12 6500k(80degree optics) over a 20g high. I run about medium light. I have them dialed down to around 70%. Those alone look pretty good.

If you are really worried put them on 2 channels.

what are their neutrals 5000k, 4?
