Which MH Bulb is better?

I am looking to replace my Coral View 175Watt 20k MH bulbs with 14K bulbs. Which one is better, The Hamilton 14ks or the Coral View 14Ks?

I am currently using CV 14ks and they are great. They have not burned in yet but right now I might add some more actinic if it looks the same after.

I know people that like the Hamiltons but I went with CV since I have CV ballasts and they were cheaper

I like the 14K CV as well. I think it's a nice happy medium.
