    Indeed. But that is still 1/4 of the price of similar units we have seen in the USA. :eek:

    Yep. That is the source. I clicked the link below, found that and spit out my coffee. :)


    Babelfish is sucking at translating Japanese though. :p

    EDIT - I wonder why?

    I hit up a Japanese friend to give us the skinny here. (Edit - He is not happy with me. :) )

    Until then I found some more interesting pics on the Maxspect LED. See attached.

    Isn't Aquatic Illumination the company that sued PFO over the Solaris due to patent infrigement??? Are we sure that the numbers listed aren't US or even Euro for that matter? We positive its Yen?

    I have blogged these: and it's not Japanese, this product is from Mainland China now available for pre order in Hongkong. The prices is not Yen either it's chinese YUAN.

    hope'll be clearer for the price conversion.
