after having a metal halid light for several years much nicer to have a high end led light systm. the timers were a mess with all the cords and now all that has been cleaned up. worth the price. the fish seem more lively too. possibly because of better light spectrum.
Unlucky By BabyStatham on 11/17/2014

Starting off with the good. The 300w 16k Maxspect was bright, and looks rather sleek. Great coverage on a 48" aquarium with very little disco effect.
Now for the bad. After a couple days the screen turned black, was unreadable, and one of the pads was flickering/lighting incorrect leds. BRS quickly sent out a replacement (+1 for BRS support!) and the replacement's screen was displaying only gibberish. Coralvue sent out a replacement screen and I switched it out and that did not work as well. Needless to say I am going with a different brand this time around. By reading the above reviews I must have received the only two bad Maxspects ever made.
Upgrade from previous LED system, worth every penny. By Kevin C on 11/5/2014

When I built my tank I put entry-level equipment in. One year later I'm going through and replacing all of my pumps, power-heads, lighting, etc.
This lighting unit was the one I had my eye on it and it has been worth the price. The functionality is awesome and has great features. To finally get rid of plug-in timers and be able to mix the colors is a blast. Once I settled in on my cycles and colors it has been a lot more fun to watch my corals bloom and grow.
This is an expensive hobby, but this is a reasonable, full-function device that is worth the investment.

Fantastic LED By Chad on 10/4/2014

This LED light has amazing power and features. I am not sure I will ever use it at full power. I plan on having corals and currently max this light out at about 70%. It is insanely bright and the flexibility to mix the blues and whites are great along with the automated timer that is built in. I was torn between the 16K and 10lk and am very glad I went with the 16K. All around awesome light and well worth the price, although it does cost a lot you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
Very well put together By Richard on 9/15/2014

I've installed 2 of these over my 180 gallon reef tank and it gives good coverage everything in it. The pre-program function is great as it let me operate it free from my computer system (freeing up more programmable plugs). It's well designed and doesn't look cheap like some of the units I've seen. The programming function is really great and easy. The booklet that came with it was very comprehensive.
Love this fixture By Christopher on 5/12/2014

I have 2 razors on my 75 and love them. Havent had any issues, the programming is a little bit complicated at first if you do manual program modes but its not too bad. I love being able to have half of my tank bright for high light corals and dark like deepwater for low light corals.

I got some of these for my 180g 4 days ago. so far I am very pleased with them.
They are very easy to set up and the directions were easy to use. The construction is very solid. The only downside is the programming screen is pretty small but, that is expected due to the thinness of the unit.
Perfect light By Nick on 4/13/2014

I bought the 48" 300w version the first week they came out. I kicked around 16k vs 10k for weeks. All of the pictures online make the 16k look so much more blue and purple than it really is. I took a long drive to a store with a 160w on display to actually look at the color and play with some settings.
No doubt 16k is the right call.
SImple to use controllable LED By RiffeShooter on 1/17/2014

I purchased two of the 160w 16K lights to go on top my 280 gallon. I have nothing but good things to say about them so far. They have worked flawlessly, they are easy to program, and they have not missed a beat. There are six different time settings on the light and you can fine tune your whites and blues in 1% increments. Great light for the money! And the looks, I have not seen another light as aesthetically pleasing as the Maxspect. I almost don't want to build a canopy… My tank is 72"x30"x30" so the spread is just on the verge of not being quite enough so I am thinking of ordering two more.

I use two of the 120w R420R lights over my 90 gallon reef. They've been running for almost a year and I've had no issues. These lights are very sleek and easy to program. The 16000K spectrum looks really good and I've had good coral growth in my tank. I run them at less than 100% power during the peak time of the day. They transition very smooth during the ramp up and ramp down for a very natural shift in light throughout the day.
I would highly recommend these lights for anyone looking for a polished LED fixture at a good price.
Great light at super price By Navydad on 7/29/2013

Great light at super price controls to learn. Great coverage , I have the 160 watt three pad light and my corals are loving this system. Very easy out of the box start up and no eight year college degree needed to try and understand the instructions. Set start points and percent of output and sit back and watch. This light comes on slowly and goes off the same way. The system allows you to play with % of colors and for those of you who like your deep blues or day light whites this light will give you what you are looking for. As for the price it is more than worth the price, a great entry point light for newbies. And also has the bells and such of higher priced units. I love that this light weighs in at just over 5 lbs and I used the leg set to mount to my tank direct, no holes up in the ceiling for me. And like I already said, the price here nobody could turn away from... Try getting a light with this many LEDs in one unit worth three fans and nice looking too. Just love this light and so does my tank...
