ATI vs Giesemann Bulbs

I'm considering on buying some new bulbs for my 48" t5 setup. Knowing that both these bulbs are good with par and appearance, which would you prefer? Is one better than the other or are they just about the same?

I can only answer for ATI. Had them loved them and would buy them again. I had the purple plus, blue plus and the aqua blue specials. Happy with them all.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I really want to buy some but my lfs don't have them in stock. Online is pricy along with the handling you gotta pay.

Would 3 39W ATI bulbs (2 Blue plus and 1 purple plus) AND 1 39W 6700GE bulb be able to house most corals in a 42 gallon 24" height tank?

21" Height***
