I’d like to see some par readings for the Maxspect RSX RS-150.

You all did a video a while back where you gave data on T5 lighting and also had a spectrometer to show how the diffuse light of the T5 reaches more parts of a coral (see video link below- 8 minute to 10 minute mark).

I would love to see an update done to see if diffusers (like the radion diffusers) gives similar results as the T5 or if T5s still do a much better job than the LEDs (in regards to fully illuminating all the surface area of a structure). My thought is the diffusers will help some in this regards but the nature of led lenses is still going to be more limiting than parabolic type reflectors that t5s typically use. But an investigation could answer that definitively. Par values are always great but I really felt like that part of the video was very informative.

Also vote for Orphek OR series.
The usual measurements in a tank with a single bar and with a group of three or four bars.

Maxspect Razor... the 4 foot one. I've seen the short one in videos for the "best budget" option, but BRS has never tested it for PAR???

Come on BRS
