I have a 48X24, 120g display. I'm seeing the SuperLux on sale for $194.99. Why not just go with 2 SuperLux rather than the Photon 48 and save $110?

Seems 6 LEDs are the main difference?
What am I missing?

ETA - Title is a typo - Photon 48............

Is there a timer vs. controller difference?

I'm mostly interested in the actual spread/coverage/PAR differences. Seems like the dimensions of 2 SuperLux fixture might better suit my tank....better front to back coverage?

SuperLux only has a timer, ie. On at 2pm and Off at 11pm for each channel. LED wise they have a different layout and the 6 LEDs possibly give it that much more PAR. I'm pretty happy with my SuperLux but then again it's my first LED unit and my tank is still only 8 months old.
