LED shop light grow light

We decided to add another shop light to our new seed growing station.

This new one is LED. It was 35 dollars at Lowes and should last longer while using less juice compared to fluorescent.

I've found that keeping the grow lights very close to the plants seem to make the plants grow thicker and stronger and not so leggy. Have you experimented with different distances of lights on plants?

Would you be willing to share the brand of light or a link. I have searched Lowes site and have not found an LED shop light in that price area.
