I am going to be shopping for new lights soon and I wanted the opinion of the reef central community. My price range will be from 1250-1750, they gotta be easy to put on a timer because my schedule varies so often, I seen a light that you can program from your phone which i thought was awesome. I am open to all opinions though.

2 of AURORA Chinese timer led lights would be perfect,I used 2 of these,remote control and built in LCD screen with 3 channels timer,14k whites full spectrum on channel one,no warm whites,450nm blues on channel two,465nm moonlights on channel three,great spectrum and cool features,it works great,I am happy with that.

OceanRevive/EverGrow IT2081 or ReefBreeders Photon 32 or 48. Enough light to keep and grow anything, built-in timers for 2 channel sunrise/midday/sunset/moonlights. And why low in your budget, like $425 to $500.
I have 2 IT2080's that have run over my 180g reef since Dec 2012 and they haven't missed a beat running 24/7/365. You don't need to worry about your schedule, these just run and run and run. We go away often and I never worry about the lights.

Be careful. I've seen some bad customer service reviews on these Aurora fixtures at Amazon.

Love the cheap Chinese 165 watt full spectrum lights... have them on our frag tank :)

Using Kessil A360WEs on our big tank though. A lot more things you can do with them naturally, and my wife likes the look a lot more than the black boxes.
