Marineland Halfmoon 10 gal, 5gal, 3gal with LEDS?

Does anyone have any experience with Marinelands Halfmoon 10 gallon tanks with the LED lighting? I like that it is glass and not acrylic but I am wondering if the 24 LEDs isn't nearly enough light for a planted tank?
Right now at Petsmart, you can get this tank with heater, crappy filter, etc for like $60. There are also smaller acrylic versions in 5 and 3 gallons with fewer LEDs but I have had nothing but bad luck with acrylic tanks in the past (cracks and leaks).
I had an eclipse tank in the past and absolutely hated it.
Are there other good options for interesting looking tanks that are a much lower price than the new Fluvals?

I will have to check again, but Aquarium International magazine had a review of them, and he had some plants growing in the 8-10g version. I think it was java fern and a couple lotus'.
