Default Ocean LED, What do you think?

I have a 27' center console, and will be installing u/w lights in the next week. I can get a good deal on the 1520 series in blue, I am just wondering if they are worth the cash. The only other lights that I am considering is the abyss lights and coastalnightlights.com. I appreciate any oppinions/experience with these lights. Thanx!

Not sure if you are interested but look in the "for sale section" under misc items and a THT member ScarabChris has designed some LED's that seem to be a very good deal
and many of the THT members have purchased them. Pictures are there as along with a link to his web site

Very nice but very expensive. A friend had them and has had alot of problems but I will say up front that it could be a multitude of things that caused the problems and might not have been the lights themselves. Either way, lights inside the housing have gone out within a month or so of installation. And yes, I know of other boats with no problems at all. I decided on Abyss because I simply was not going to pay the higher price and I am satisfied with the light output but just installed so I cannot say anything about reliability or longevity yet. Good luck whichever direction you go.

I have the abyss under water Blue LED lights installed by my dealer last year. To date no problems, I love them. There new more powerful leds compare well with Ocean Led but for less money. Contact Jim at BOE marine a sponsor on this site. He sells both.

Just received my green underwater LED from coastalnightlights.com, just could not beat the price. Just installed on the back of the transom. Leaving for the Keys this week, can't wait to try the new light out.
