Opinions of Outer Orbit LED light system...

Hello I am so new to this hobby it is pathetic. BUT, I now have a 125g tank and wanna make it a salty. So, I am looking at lighting options and saw some very expensive metal halide, and other such stuff... What are your opinions of the Outer Orbit LED light system, I realize it is STUPENDOUSLY expensive... let me know whatcha think, thanks.

LED technology is coming along. It is relatively new. The main advantages are long life, low operating temperature, and flexiblity. The technology is not where it needs to be, but I believe that within the next 3-5 years LED will be the mainstay for lighting in the hobby. Right now the most progressive technology is the mini flourescents, T5 technology. T12's and T8's are on the way out.

OK, so how does that rate Outer Orbit and/or Solaris as far as LED "light bar" for an aquarium?
