    UP new Z-series Pro LED lighting

    Anyone seen this? UP has this new LED light.

    Although this new Z-series still uses normal 56mW (not high powered) LED, it has almost 3 times as much LEDs on the fixture than the normal ones, so should be much brighter & uniform.










    Model: PRO-LED-Z-20
    Power: 56mW/1pcs
    LED Lamp: 180pcs
    Luminous intensity: 1400mcd/1pcs
    Colour temperature: 8000k
    Input power: AC 100V-240V
    Output power: DC 12V

    A review here:
    http://www.shrimpscape.com.au/viewto...p?t=715&p=3944

    The price is much higher than normal 2ft LED
    http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/22-8-LED-...ht_6815wt_1152


    From the specs, do you think this can be used to grow moderate to high light plants?

    I'm thinking of replacing my bulky & hot T5HO with LED, but can't afford Aquasky or other high powered LEDs

    Have you considered the beamswork super bright range?

    I believe they are value for money.

    UP new Z-series Pro LED lighting

    $200 vs higher end models that are beyond $400 mark.

    Hmmmm... :P

    I know user Howie is using the higher model. Seems promising. Go have a look at his jungle disco! He made a thread.

    I'd love to, but no space. Else i'd have started out with much bigger tank.

    Hmmm, maybe i'll just get 2x of those Beamswork 9 x 1W Light.

    The UP PRO-LED-Z-20 costs around S$95 based on ebay site provided above, while I understand that Beamswork 1600 is in the $160 range ? instead of 1 Beamswork, buy 2 UP PRO instead ?

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    But I will probably have to see the item itself to decide. I've checked the latest from high power LED from Beamswork and indeed they are quite value for money.

    Re: UP new Z-series Pro LED lighting

    is this sold in Singapore yet? if yes then where can I find it? I have a 40cm planted tank and I am currently using a 2 x 15W aquazonic light fixture which I think is overkill but it does light up my tank nicely and supports plant (and a lot of algae if I'm not careful) growth. I am interested to see how bright this LED fixture is for myself...pretty reasonable price as well seeing that the Z-15 for 40cm++ tanks is about $80 on eBay..

    Re: UP new Z-series Pro LED lighting

    Ok, some updates.

    Saw this UP Z-series LED in store yesterday. It wasn't very bright at all despite their claim of being plant light. Low light plants maybe.

    Anyway, I bought this Beamswork with 6 x 3W LED with 6500K bulb. Total 18W to replace my 36W T5HO.



    The LED is super bright, but not so much inside the tank. Maybe because its much higher position than my previous T5HO which just 2cm from the water surface. But despite not as bright visually, the fish are very vibrant, everything sparkles & shiny. We'll see by today if my plants are pearling. On my T5HO everything pearls like mad

    Is the Beamswork Power LED 600 good enough for low thriving plants?
