I have it and for the money its a steal relatively speaking. Colors are great and I keep mostly sps. Its only been 2 weeks but things seem to be holding color or getting better. If you have any questions just ask. Its on a 110g.

Here is a video. Close in white balance but not as blue. Left half of tank is lit with Par 38's from my old tank. Right side is the superlux. Currently at 65% white channel and 65% blue channel. I tried to match the intensity and color of the par 38's and this is the closest. This also limits how high I can fill the tank as the par 38's cant penetrate that deep of water. If all goes well I will get a second one this fall.. Hope this was useful...enjoy

This fixture is the next step up from the "value series" lights. I think it has 4 less LED's though and are more space out. It doesn't have a green LED. So not sure how that affects colors, but stuff in my tank looks to be the right colors.

I purchased this light for my 29 gallon and I can't for the life of me
figure out how to set up the clock. What would you recommend the
channel's be set on. Planning on growing torches hammers zoas frogspawn and duncans

It looks a lot, an awful lot, like the OceanRevive T247 which has been around for a couple of years. Since both RB and OR have their fixtures made by EverGrow, I guess that shouldn't be a surprise.
