Have you read the reviews on it? It's not so promising. Have you looked at some good 4 or 6 bulb t5 HO fixtures or metal halides?

The choice is yours. Just like with anything else. Like I'm going back and forth about the iPhone 5 or the Galaxy s3 lol

It looks good to me. It had T5's also? So it's metal halide and T5? Best if both worlds IMO. I

Which one would be getting? I see various ones for the same size. I see the 400 watt metal halide with I think it said 4 65 watts power compacts and LED moonlights.
