Does anyone have any feedback or experience with any of these fixtures? They are a manufacturer in china using cree & bridgelux LEDs and making dirt cheap fixtures.
Their 60w dimmable cree fixture is list priced for $185 but a US distributor has an agreement and is now reselling them on ebay for $400. A few people are using them rebranded under dif names and saying they work well.
---------------copied from reefcentral--------------
I got 7 PDFs sent to me with the specs on the dif products & prices.
Apparently the Aqua washer lights are dimmable, but unfortunately they are super long strips of LEDs. The Aqua Master would be really nice because it is ~20" long, uses 2 rows of 20 3w LEDs (40 total, 20 455nm blue 20 14k white) + a middle strip of 33 moon lights + 2 10w T5s..all for $230!? Is there any kind of stupid high tax for shipping/buying from china?
Overall everything is dirt cheap here are the prices..

the 60w cree classic
Ivy : 10:23:34
Ivy : 10:24:02
price is in the full price list of our 3G aqua
Ivy : 10:24:23
the 25x3w LED aquarium light that is priced at $80 is not the same as the 60w cree classic
did not see a price for it
Ivy : 10:27:55
it is the ES-60W-CA, price is USD 185/pc
Okay, I did not see that in the email
Oh I am sorry
I missed that pdf
Ivy : 10:28:43
Did you see the 3G LED aquarium prices?
Ivy : 10:28:48
Yeah I missed it
How are these ordered? is there a supplier in the united states?
Ivy : 10:29:26
yes, too many files :-)
Ivy : 10:29:51
Ivy : 10:30:24
they are our sales agent for this unit in USA
Ah okay so to buy one you have to pay $409.99 to go through them
Ivy : 10:31:17
and we do not sell directly to USA any more
Ivy : 10:31:27
no, you need talk with them for price
their price is $409.99
That is too bad, thank you for the information
Ivy : 10:34:00
yes, you need contact them for this unit
Ivy : 10:34:11
or you can choose other units from us
What units do you sell directly
Ivy : 10:34:44
all besides the 60w cree
ah, that is the only one that has lights that can be dimmed though
Ivy : 10:37:52
then you did not read the specs of aqua washer...
Ivy : 10:38:24
it can be dimmable too with the same dimmer
Ivy : 10:38:38
check the quote?
Yea it is too long though
Tank is ~500MM long
Ivy : 10:40:58
and the Master can work well without dimmer, it has moonlight, main light source can be controlled with digital timers
Ivy : 10:42:12
So you can have some white/blue on morning, and all the rest on at noon, then some off, and only keep the moonlight on at night...
Ivy : 10:43:04
And the last thing I want to tell you is we have a programmable controller for our 50X3W and 100X3W
Ivy : 10:43:38
the programmable controller is an Auto dimming and timming controller
Ivy : 10:44:05
You can set the time and lighting intensity
okay, because being able to dim is important to control the colors
Ivy : 10:44:53
it is our new item, I am now, making up the specs and instruction, and will put it on our website soon
Ivy : 10:45:43
OK, please let me know when you make your decision
Ivy : 10:46:00
