I think many of you have heard or read about the recent release of the new Ecotech Radion Generation 3. I got my hands on one and wanted to share some information and photos with you.

From what I have heard the G3 is more of a face lift to the G1/G2. The buttons are now illuminated soft touch push buttons from capacitive touch sensitive. The fan cover is molded into the fixture and IP-rated waterproof.

Apparently yellow LEDs have been removed and replaced with indigo and ultraviolet LEDs to expand the spectrum. I believe this LED cluster is similar to the G2 Pro. There are 38 energy efficient LEDs

so really, its a pro for more money?
No. Before generation 3s were released the generation 2 Pros cost more. With the release of the G3, I found G2 Pros to come down in price and almost match the G3 but not cheaper (depends on vendor). This is typical for vendors to do for stock movement.

Eventually, all G2/G2Pros will be sold out so it's a good time to buy if you like the G2s.

(Vendors are welcome to correct me if I'm wrong)
