First I would like to give BRS an A++ for delivery. I received my 16000k version a day earlier than expected which was awesome! The care taken by BRS in packaging the light was exceptional as well.
Now for the light: I bought the light to go over a Biocube 29 that I am in the process of setting up and so far it looks great. The build quality is top notch, the programmability is easy, and the light coverage is perfect for the Biocube.
Overall a great buy so far.
Good LED light for the money By Joseph on 12/17/13

I've put together a few DIY LED multichips lights over my DT (total of 340 W), but I thought I'd try out a commercial version over my converted 10 gal refugium with this Maxspect. While I could probably put together a 60 W DIY for $150, it wouldn't be as adjustable as this unit (and it wouldn't look quite as nice), so overall I'm pretty happy with it.
With 100% on in both channels, the 16000 K unit looks good, but it does get pretty blue when channel A drops below channel B. I'd be interested to see what the 10000 K unit would look like, but that comparison will not happen soon.

Previous on my biocube 29 HQI I had the standard 150 watt MH light. As I didn't want to shock my corals I started the light around low 30% intensity & have moved up gradually from there. Currently, I'm up to 45%. The 16K light is just a little too blue for me, even with the blue lights on channel B off. For my next tank I will go with the 10K MaxSpect.
Overall, a huge improvement from the MH light, water stays cool & my electric meter no longer looks like a UFO spinning out of control.

I got the 16000k version over my Nuvo 16g aquarium. Easy setup and the spread covers the tank perfectly. Three different programs to choose from, I went with the Auto, simple clicking of the dial to set this up. I've read about the size of the power supply being too big, but it's the size of any LED I've owned. Overall the unit is light, looks super sleek over my tank. Can't wait to get some sps corals in there.
