Selene, I got the Beamswork 6500K, also. You are right about the lights shining in your eyes. But that doesn't bother me since I intend to build a hood once I have all of my hardware figured out... Mine came with clear plastic stands, not the black wire type.
I also bought the timer because I wanted to leave the blue lights on in the evening for moonlight effect (you set the white and blue LEDs seperately, on the timer) . It has bad reviews because it doesn't come with instructions. Sheesh, it only has two buttons, not hard to figure out. I gave it 5 stars.
Unfortunately, the blue lights are UV. So my high-tannin water glows under them (as do the dogs when they get on the couch, nearby lol). I'll try moonlight again when the water clears.
