Pricey, but awesome By jsbull on 1/2/2016

These do everything you want them to and even have a bunch of showy functions. I don't plan to use clouds or lightning storms in my house, but hey, it's part of the cool factor to say you do.
At first, I couldn't believe the price of these lights, but I bit the bullet and got them. I'm really glad I did. My Apex controls them wonderfully and before I had it, I used the EcoSmart Manager. Both work really well and do everything you want them to.
If you can handle the price tag, you can't go wrong.
Nice lights but my corals suffered By EddieKMD on 11/27/2015

The lights intergrate well with Apex Neptune controller so I did not have to purchase the ReefLink. I noticed that my corals were dying or at a standstill. I didn't have PAR meter so I didn't know how strong I should run these. I ran at 20-40% but corals were still dying. I ended switching to T5s. Corals are very happy now. They did more growth in a month then they did in 2 years!

These lights are WOW! I had cheaper LEDs, and they did fine with my SPS. But these XR30s are incredible with all the features. The color they produce is amazing! I keep the red/green channel very low, 10% max at peak lighting over my 180 reef. The only downside is the price, but if you can bite the bullet you will not be disappointed. I would definitely get the reeflink also.

This light is more then what I expected!. I ordered two of these to hang over my reef and I can't believe the dramatic impact they have. I'm having a difficult time connecting them to my apex but the echosmart live software is fantastic so I may not have too. There is plenty of light, so much so that I'm only running mine at 15%. I'll be purchasing a PAR meter soon so that I can dial in my setup to optimum levels. Don't hesitate if you're on the fence with these.
