I purchased two Satellite plus pro's a few months ago. One for my ten gallon, and one for my parents' 20L. While their tank was under construction, I kept the one on my 30gallon tall tank, in place of my duel t5 to test it out.... I am absolutely amazed at the intensity and PAR values. I don't have a PAR meter though I have several plants that give a good idea. Their claim as having high PAR is accurate. You can adjust the different colors for the visual effect you desire, but I think looks great with equal lighting spectrums. Much better than fluorescent lighting.

The plus pro on my 10 gal. Has to be reduced to 50%...and I may go lower, my plants are still growing sideways away from the light and fighting algae.

Not sure if you can link them together...I don't think so, but maybe if you're handy with electrical stuff?

Another downside is that you can't have a siesta period, but is still highly programmable in every other way.

If you can't link them, i think it would add to the already present ramping effect. It would be nice but IMO I think linking them would be somewhat pointless and maybe even decrease the performance of the two units given that it would be plugged into one outlet, but I'm no electrical engineer by far. Others with experience building their own LEDs would have some advice.
Overall, I can't be happier with the satellite plus pro, and I did ALOT of research. Boone has any bad reviews of the product. If anything, it's Too bright....it also hangs very low, too close to the surface in my opinion.
