Anyone know anything about Helios T5 lighting ?

A LFS is selling this Helios T5 fixture with eight 54 watt bulbs for $300. Another LFS says there are different qualities of T5 bulbs and that these Helios do not put out as much light per watt as the other T5 bulbs out there. Is this true ?

I don't think they each have their own reflector. From what I have been able to see online, each bulb comes with its own ballast and fixture and needs to be installed in a hood. I need to find out a model number of this unit from LFS.
