    Pricely!!! Well worth the money , Easy to install and configure with the Wifi ,The App is straight forward and easy to use. Good Spectrum, The only issue i have is the registration ,I couldn't register more than one device under my email, contact the service support and web staff is looking into the problem. I was told that registration would not affect any warranty related issues (Posted on 6/29/2016)

  3. Awesome product that has the POTENTIAL to be Epic. Review by Cldormer
    Product Rating:

    So I dove back into the hobby after a 5 year hiatus. My last tank was a 12G AquaPod with a 150 watt MH HQI. I know, I know overkill is my specialty. So Long story short craigslist.com led me to my latest tank a 28G JBJ LED Professional-fully stocked with a Chiller for $450....Merry Christmas to me from me! After 2 weeks of 3 power cords and a flickering ballast on it's last leg. I decided to spring for the AI 26 Hydra HD. A Buy It Now auction on eBay ensured all my lighting worries would be solved shortly. After an initial shipping hiccup from Aquacave was remedied by them UPS Overnighting my light I was happy. I retro fitted it into my hood no problem and then the disappoinments started. I watched every single video on the internet and read every bit of information I could find on the light before I ordered it. The controllability and the actual app for both iOS and Android is where this product is lacking. In fact the very video that led me to pull the trigger on ordering the light is this one:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-XMVFrrHLo

    After watching this video and then comparing the actual app that is downloadable for customers to use -they were nothing alike. I get constant app crashes and all updates are current on my iPad and Android. I shoot off emails to AI and I get the explanation of there are bugs/issues with the app but a "huge update to the controller and app that is to be released after Jan.1 2016" I was under the initial impression that this light would come with all the features that the Director gave -cool things like using Google Maps to select the actual location of your Reef. Actual weather-cloud cover...not just lightning storms. I know again that goes back to my overkill mindset but for $350 bucks I was expecting more. Don't get me wrong it's still the best bang for the buck but- So many dreams and so much potential for this light but software is where this light is being held back in my honest opinion. Overall it's worth the money but hopefully the light will gain more tweaks and options with future app updates. (Posted on 12/31/2015)
