Hello all, I'm hoping this is the right place to advertise this item.  First, some background.  As a side job I do firmware/hardware development for a small US-based coral LED lighting company called AcroOptics (acrooptics.com).   From our first generation product,  I have a large area LED lighting fixture (the 48'' Crave Reef Flats, see https://acrooptics.com/product/fixtures/) that I had been using for testing/development purposes.  The fixture has 5 LED colors (uv, white, amber, blue, red) that can be independently controlled in various ways using either the LCD/pushbutton interface or a Windows/OSX-based GUI, either by connecting over USB or over WiFi.  Instead of just letting it sit around unused, I was hoping I could find a good home for it here in the UK.  It's in mostly good shape, though one of the end panels is slightly bent out of shape from subpar handling by FedEx, see included photos.  Free to a good home, but I don't really want to deal with shipping (it's 33 kg), so I would require you to pick it up (I'm based in Kingston upon Thames).  I'm more than willing to provide more details for anyone interested.

The lenses are really what make this unit special.  They are custom injected molded and designed for TIR (total internal reflection), which gives very good color blending and uniform coverage (>~6 inches) below the light.  There really aren't any "hot" spots where one color dominates others etc.
