Anyone use this light

Has anyone here tried one of these lights?
500 W Light

I am just wondering how well they do for sps and if they really do put off the light they claim they do.

I wouldn't go near that product, and I don't believe its claims in the least. Looks like a con job to me. 65 W of power will not equal the output of a 400 W MH bulb. MH is not that inefficient.

I use it over my fuge and it grow cheato very well, the one I got I bought from HD. It is bright but I would not use it for a reef tank way to yellow for me.

I looked threw some pics they had over tanks and as far as I can tell they don't even like they can penitrate to the bottom of a 20gal. There claim is they put out the same light as a 500W but use 65W. From the pics I don't see it!
