BioCube 32 LED vs. JBJ 28 LED

All, looking for some input on deciding between the JBJ and the BioCube nano tanks w/ LEDs.... Biocube just released the "updated" version, which seems to just have a nicer stand. I know JBJ's historically have had lighting issues, serious issues... Have they fixed this? Which would be a better "out of the box" option for a basic LPS tank? This is my segway back into the hobby, so I want to start out right...

Also, I need a "closed" lid, not open top option.... So many of the other nano tanks, unfortunately, will not work.

Thank you everyone!

I've got the BC32 LED with a Steve's LEDs upgrade and I love it, but it is my first tank so I can't compare. Happy to answer questions, though.

I too have the Biocube 32 with the Steve’s LED upgrade. I did the upgrade because I want hard corals. The LEDs the come with it are good for soft corals. I have always had large tanks in the past and this is my first experience with a Biocube but so far so good.
