Pulse start, probe start, electronic?? What's up???

I upgraded two ballasts ($15 each) to pulse start from probe start ballasts. I was told that the pulse start is appropriate for the largest range of bulbs. Is this correct?

What's the story on different ballasts? A link to good info maybe? Thanks all!
