Hamilton Deluxe Metal Halide \ PC System


I am looking for opinions on whether or not this this a good set of lights. I have seen the same set-up online for anywhere from $5-700.00, without the 14K bulbs, and those are usually about $50.00 a piece. The auction is over, but I still would like to know about Hamilton Deluxe Lights.


I guess I am contrasting them with these


I realize these are HQI with Lunar, but they are more than 3X the price, are they that much better?

Is Hamilton generally considered a good manufacturer? I have done searches, but there is not that much out there with regards to thier canopies. ...If you have experience, or any recommendations pro or con, I would like to hear them. These will be for my 55 gallon reef.
