    Gah of course after I buy 2 360w for my upcoming build (which this form factor would probably be perfect for)

    That looks really nice! I bet build quality is top notch. I'm having a hard time gathering from the pictures, but is this basically 2 A360W's encased in a panel?

    Without learning more about it, and what other benefits it has aside from the USB and access to an app, I would still opt for 2 A360's so the top of my tank remains much more viewable.

    Edit: Of course this is just my preference, but I think it would be slick if they put knobs on it instead of the reactive buttons. ;)

    Yeah I'm wondering if it's 2 lights in a panel, or if there's more to it than that. If it's two lights in a panel how does the price compare to 2 lights. The novel thing about the "cans" is that you can place them where you want and configure them as you wish. Although I could see how this is more for those who want a more traditional "hood" look over their tank.

    Also looking at the reefbuilder's site looks like there could be same fancy integration with colors and tablets/phones.

    Any hint on when Kessil would launch this? I'm planning on a second light and would wait if this is coming out soon...

    Built-in controller is pretty robust. It has true WIFI built in also unlike Radion and AI that use RF. Make integration to iPad/iPhone/Droids more seamless.

    I was able to played with it for a little bit and I was very very impressed. My only gripe was that Dave didn't leave one behind for me to play with a little longer...lol.

    Kessil will be bringing it to our grand opening for showing!
