This is a preliminary review, based on out of the box function and aesthetics.

These modules are slick, sexy and BRIGHT. I can't look directly at it for very long. I briefly tested over my 10 gallon holding tank, and the colors really pop. I'm waiting on delivery of all my modules, fixture, and wall mount as well as new aquarium to write a full review, but so far I'm sure I'm going to love them. The initial investment on good LED's is more than made up on cooler tank temps, ability to swap out single modules or add more, and long lamp life.

Not sure if Ecoxotic reads these reviews but I have also heard that they have fantastic customer service. Those who are complaining of premature burnout seem to be people who are mounting these modules flush, and/or mounting them in an enclosed space with no fans. NO LED will withstand that, the heatsink needs to have ample room-temp air flow.

If Ecoxotic does see this review, I would ask for a couple more options on splitters (6 way would be fabulous) and larger transformers if possible. What is available now is fantastic, but at 5 modules so far in my build, I think cable management is going to be a tad bit irritating with two splitters and two transformers.

5 stars so far!

I bought 5 of these less than a year ago. I also bought 3 stunner strips. Over the course of about 6 months they all slowly stopped working. I contacted the reputable place I purchased them from, and was informed they did have problems with these and the stunners but unfortunately there was nothing they could do for me and told me I should contact the manufacturer (Exotic). I sent several lengthy emails detailing the problems I had and was hoping they would replace or repair the units. I was sent a return email that stated somebody would get back to me to discuss the problems and possible solution and haven't heard back from them since. That was several months ago. I replied several times asking if anybody had a minute to talk with me and nobody answers. From reading in many online reef forums, I'm not the only one who had issues with these lights. They work great and put out a good amount of light for an easy add on to your tank and add great pop. BUT the product is junk. Both these and the stunners WILL eventually stop working. There are other companies that make a similar product and are very willing to stand behind their products. I would look at those companies. These are expensive to only work for a few months! One stopped working within 6 weeks and then it was like a chain reaction with some of the units only half of the led lights will actually light up, some light but they are dim, some don't work at all. Do yourself a favor and look at the other LED light strips from other companies. Also maybe a bit of research, these have had a LOT of issues and the company will NOT stand behind their product.

I bougth this unit several months ago, and they were stunning. After a few months they become rusted and after some weeks they stopped working. There is no way to contact them from my country and obtain support. I saw that many people are having the same problem so I wanted to contribute with my experience. Don't be fooled by the great light they produce. They will last as a fallen star.

I bought these lights to retro fit my BioCube and I was floored at how great it looked with my new lights. I've had these lights for almost a year and I can't say enough good things about them.

The label on this product is misleading- it says these are 19w but they are actually the new 16w panorama pro 2.0 I am actually very happy because It wasn't until after I ordered them that I realized the old version was 19w and the new better version was 16w! Easy in install in my biocube 29 hood. Very happy with the light! I hope they last- will update after a few months to let people know if they failed or burnt out- fingers crossed!

I did not buy this module but a more expensive one. The directions didn't fit the diagram or the module, there were parts left over after I finally got it assembled with less than minimal technical help, and it died about a year later. No response to phone calls or e-mails. Ecoxotic is very user unfriendly

These led lights are so cool. It literally turned my biocube from pretty neat to insanely crisp and vivid. It now has more pop than my 47 inch Samsung hdtv. I would definitely recommend this light to any saltwater or freshwater enthusiast. One thing I would suggest is to buy the dimmer switch so you can adjust the brightness and get that color temperature you have always wanted. These do not get hot enough to make my biocube hood feel warm. So happy I decided to give these a go. I definitely don't regret this purchase..

I purchased 4 of these for my 55 gallon aquarium and wow - what a difference! The amount of shimmer they created in my tank was amazing. I wanted to add some more color, called their tech support line and ended up buying two of the blue/magenta. The colors really look great in my corals and their customer service and advice was spot-on. I'd highly recommend these to any reef aquarium hobbyist!

This strip is bright as hell!! And awesome for corals, they are growing soo much faster now, I used to have the stunners from ecoxotic, but these are way better lighting. I recommend for sure! The stunners are more for accent lighting.
