This unit has the potential to really set the BAR in regards to LED fixtures on the market today!!

Hopefully in the next 2 weeks we'll get coverage, specs and pricing so we'll know where these fall in place compared to some of the others in the game. I'm pretty sure I'll see one of these in my future soon!!

Man that looks like a full P3 control panel integrated into the side there ...

I am anxious to see some of the details of this system to see if it would work well for me as well!

But it's OK, I am patient

I hope it also comes as cheaper slave model without the on board controller so you can just let the profilux control it. No point paying twice for something!

ok, no offense, but someones gotta say it.
The picture looks awful. Seriously, badly Photoshopped and jagged lines as though the resolution would be missing.

Again, please take this the right way, it just does not look as serious as the product will be in real life.. surely..

Any idea if the slave unit will be compatible to run with the new Vertex Cerebra controller that is being released at the end of the month?

The light spectrum looks very promising. I'm hoping these don't break the bank...

I hope also! as I would like to try one out to compare them against my Radions. Hopefully with a cheaper slave combined with a Vertex Cerebra controller but not holding my breath on that one.

I would be surprised if GHL (Being an aquarium controller manufacturer) were to make it that easy for a new competitor to come and control their product. Honestly I can see both arguments but I would be surprised to see it being opened up to that market.

Not sure where it has been posted anywhere by Vertex the celebrex is coming out, but I cant imagine when vertex have an LED system they would make it compatible.

I would also be edgy to be the first to buy any new controller from a non controller dedicated company, maybe look at what is already there such as Profilux that is proven and has more funtionality than any other controller on the market today with further huge advances coming this year too.

+1, I bought the Reefkeeper when it first came out. I had nothing but problems. Switched to Profilux and its been smooth sailing ever since

That is great to hear, I am looking at one of their systems for my new design.
