    Yes, that's the same seller that Matt linked to in the first post and as has already been stated, that's exactly what they do. Am I missing something here. :?

    Wongdai have you seen this thread - LED Lighting Panels - where to buy? - and specifically the link in post #5 - Philips SmartBright LED Batten 11W (600mm) or 21W (1200mm). Could be a good way to go.

    The air flow capacity of a 5" SDD will be at least 150% of the 4" version. If you're only going for the 4" one I'd suggest you buy a 2HP DE, the 3HP machine will be a waste of money for a 4" system.
