I was able to easily grow anubias and java fern with the stock lighting. Unfortunately, after only 6 months, the diodes starting burning out one by one and I had to switch to a desk lamp with a daylight CFL.

I have the Evolve 4.

I have grown Argentine swords, water sprite, wysteria, rotala roundtifolia, various bacopa. All with the stock light.

Mine has lasted a year, although I recently lost 4 of the LEDs.

I agree with the people above. The evolve 8 is OK as a tank with its sump. But the stock led isn't great. Mine burnt out within two months of buying it. Got a wave point clip on 6500k. But you could probably grow some basic stuff as mentioned above np.
