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!
