If it used white LEDs, as do every LED ringlight I've seen, it'll be very blue, beyond daylight, around 10,000K, with a tendency to go purple as the emitters age. The spectrum is reasonable, though, and filters well - although I haven't ever had to match it to anything for film.

The new lumileds out of silicon valey are great. They come as tungsten or daylight and are very very bright.
the spectral graphs and the like are here.

The gekko ringlight is very different smaller and more compact. The http://litepanels.com/ is a lot larger. It s not flexible and all over the place like the arri LED ringlight is it?

An engineer stopped by where I work and saw the ad for the ledlight and then he told me that you could "quite" easily build your own ledlight for a fraction of the official ledlight's cost. Of course it's not the same thing but it sounded intresting.

Looking at the photometrics, the 5600K KISSlite outputs 42FC @ six feet. That's comparable to a Diva200, which is 45FC @ six feet. The Kamio ring lite is much, much less. They don't even publish the photometrics beyond 4 feet, because it is so little.
What's the main difference between Ledlight and kinoflow? Is the ledlight faster to use?
Still, 8 Grand? Not for me.
