I'm probably gonna go with the 14K to start and see what it looks like after burn in, I like the look of the 12K, makes taking ics a pain, but I like the look.

My setup is . Just a regular 250 watt coralvue 12k bulb. The reflector is mounted in my canopy about 12 inches off the water. There is no glass between the bulb and the water. I have a montipora capricornis frag about 5 inches from the water line that is already showing signs of growth. Also i have a finger leather about 5 inches as well and it is growing very rapidly. I dunno what to say. I think this is a case of bad bubls.

sumphead- What colony bleached?

so overall would you all encourage some one to buy these bulbs or discourage them from buying them?

They have begun using a new glass manufacturer and from what David has posted at RC, they will filter more UV than any other bulb glass, at the moment. If this is true, then yes I would recommend them. After putting a 1/8" glass splash guard back in my pendant all my corals have recovered and are showing good growth. The color on these bulbs is very nice, however, on the 10K the Ushio was more intense (looking) probably because it is much more yellow.
