    Last night I picked up a tank and some equipment and there was a radion xr30 included and an mp10 we had a bit of trouble gettin the radion connected to eco smart live via usb the computer registered that the light was connected but the software didn't...... we eventually got it working after about 2n half hours haha.

    i have one and love it now that my wifi router has been replaced
    worthwhile investment in my opinion
    and much easier to use as compared to comparable controllers that are available

    Yes a reeflink can be handy at times though I pretty much set up my radions on the website then upload to the lights then that is it, leave them be......

    I have one and 5 Radions above my tank - I find it really useful and pretty much do as Jasandjules do, set them and forget them.
    What I have found is that (maybe as mine are Gen2 Pro's?) the individual LED brightness can drift a bit and the ReefLink is invaluable here as I can re-calibrate them to get them back to being more accurate (once a year) with my PC, this has been more important since I started downloading/using the EcoTech Coral Lab templates for the lights as these do work as suggested; worth a look if you have a Reef Link as I would imagine programming the templates to each light individually could be a pain.
