Best PC lighting for the money?

I'm looking to light my 55gal to about 275 watts and was wondering what you folks think is the best way to go. I mean, most bang for the buck.

JEBO seems to make decent PC's for a reasonable price? Any comments/suggestions are greatly appreciated. TIA

go with a coralife aqualight. They have much better ballasts and bulbs then the jebo's. Plus they have a company who will stand behind there product. I sold 2 bad ones last year out of over 200. They are very reliable!
