Totally agreed, for average hobbyists, one of the biggest advantages of leds is controll. Not everyone will have the space ( or tank depth) to move a bunch of corals around to aid in the acculmation to undimmable leds. For example - my girlfriend is in the process of setting up a 29 gal biocube, and is going to be running one of the fixtures made from Matt at reeftechpro, there would be no way to run that fixture on her tank, if it was not dimmable
