    I've had 2 Kessil a350w over my tank for about a year. I love them. I'm going to get 2 360w but don't know if I should get the 360we. Anyone have them and have a recommendation?

    PS I'll be selling my 350s soon...

    The "E" version is supposed to be 30% stronger / brighter. If you think more light would be a good thing, then I would definately get the "E's." ;)

    I'm enjoying my "E"s. Then are newer, brighter and the same price. Can't go wrong with the E.

    Are they selling them as a different light, or have they simply replaced the regular wide with the "E" version?

    I would assume they would be the production replacement for the a360n/w.

    Maybe someone from Kessil or an authorized retailer can chime in and verify?

    The a360WE is up to 15% more efficient than the original A360. Kessil had the opportunity to use a new led chip they manufactured (e series)and by doing so was able to get better performance. They also switched from a larger 48v power supply down to a 19v power supply. The light overall is a great buy and cant wait to see what your tank looks like before and after the swap.
