I have to say this light puzzled me at first. I own Ecotech R.PROs two on my 100gallon. I own Kessil's 360we on my 30 gallon shallow reef frag tank. Also own these lights Vertex SR360 on my 65 gallon cube tank. The only way I can explain these lights are as follows. Ecotechs are like porsche they look nice they have a lot of bells and whistles, and everybody wants one and they dont know why. They are hot looking and cost a lot to repair. Kessils are like Chevy trucks basic dependable,they do exactly what you need them to do great looking and a light that grows your corals so fast. Shimmer matched by none, Even better than metal halide. But Vertex SR360's..... I would have to call this light a Bentley it does everything. If you want thunderstorms ok done. if you want cloudy days done! if you want a sunrise that starts on one side of the aquarium and reaches to the other in real time done! What about full coral growth any depth of the tank done! No need to buy a controller no need for a apex, this bad boy has it built in and easy to use. If you want to be more techy just put in the usb drive and full online control for you done! If you can Afford this light just buy it. you will thank me for it.
Vertex Illumina SR360 LED Light Fixture By james on 3/26/2014

This a a high end reef tank lighting system. I will do more then what most people really need it to do. If you like the little special things like thunder storms then you will love this light. as far as programing there is nothing you cant make it do. just make sure you don't over power your tank as it is easy to over light and burn up your corals. IMHO it is a lot of money to spend on a light but you will have it forever. I have the 5 foot unit on a 6 foot long 300gal tank and i am very happy with it. i can keep sps even on the bottom with no problems if i want. you can mix the colors any way you want to make for what you like. i really like the moonlight feature that changes with the stages of the moon in my area. over all a great light
Best overall LED out there By Michael on 1/8/2014

If you want the best quality / ease of use, this is the light you should buy, I own 4 of them in total, 3 are 260 (72", 60", 24"), and 1 is 360 (60"). The 360 keep the coral grow and probably the strongest LED I had seen out there for reefers. The 260 I use them on LPS and fish tanks, program is easy as you can download them from Vertex, no other light has an all in one package like Vertex does. Never had an issue with these lights, I basically set them up initially, and it will just do the job by it self, no more turning on/off the lights.
As of right now, I don't think anyone else has come close to a overall match with Vertex right now.
