Found this led on premium aquatics. Built in sunset/sunrise timer, thunderstorms. Can dim the different colors. And best part only 200 a light!

Anyone ever heard or use a Micmol light?

I think the AI Prime does the same thing for the same price.

Personally I would pick the prime over this light although I do have to say this light is pretty cool. It uses high quality LEDS which is a big change from most chinese fixtures and has cool features. I would say you cannot go wrong really either way but I have never heard of that company and AI is pretty well trusted in the led light community.

I personally have no experience with either one of those lights but I did stay at a Motel 6 once.

no one asked about Motel 6 so I am compelled to ask how the stay was? I have never stayed at a hotel 6 but am capable of using google to look at reviews and based on the reviews the one here in the springs only got a 3.5 stars out of 5. I probably wouldnt stay here based on the reviews of others that have stayed.

Where is everyone buying these diy kits? I've been searching rapidled.com and all the kits are nearly the same price as a manufactured light

You can get LEDs and ldd-h drivers at satisleds.com. but the controller is something I would diy and program with sunrise/sunset effects as well as weather patterns and lightning.

Okay so I checked them out and I see a 100w led multichip for 60$

Can you make a kessil like light with same controls for 200$ a piece?

I really want two lights for my 90 that produce the dramatic shimmer that kessil offers but I can't afford 900$

If you get the LEDs and drivers I can use the diy controller to control the lighting signal on all of them.....I can do 6-channel cheap and a 16-channel as well but for about $35 more in parts

So the 5-channel 100w chips you would need 2, ldd-h drivers 10x and a 48v power supply over 200w....as well as 2 heatsinks....cheaper to get at heatsinksusa.com

the laptop power cord is the power supply, the driver is how it converts the power to run the channel of leds, so you would technically have both the tiny drivers Martin was talking about AND the laptop power supply. The cool thing with these leds is you can get a wireless controller that does sunrise/sunset, lunar cycles, **** you can even do storms and clouds and whatever.

Humor is lost apparently, seems others found the humor in my post and responded accordingly, not sure you read down that far before posting.

Humor was taken as humor just so you didn't think I meant it to come across as me being butt hurt by Roy's comments.

Humor huh wikipedia has it as: Humour or humor (see spelling differences) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours (Latin: humor, "body fluid"), controlled human health and emotion.

People of all ages and cultures respond to humour. Most people are able to experience humour—i.e., to be amused, to smile or laugh at something funny—and thus are considered to have a sense of humour. The hypothetical person lacking a sense of humour would likely find the behaviour induced by humour to be inexplicable, strange, or even irrational. Though ultimately decided by personal taste, the extent to which a person finds something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, intelligence and context. For example, young children may favour slapstick such as Punch and Judy puppet shows or cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, whose purely physical nature makes it more accessible to them. By contrast, more sophisticated forms of humour such as satire require an understanding of its social meaning and context, and thus tend to appeal to more mature audiences.

Huh don't see it. I figured it was the typical "your opinion" based on someone else’s review comment on everything post. Oh yeah please let me know when my response is "accordingly". I can't wait for the reply (meant sarcastic as hell).
