Brand of MH lighting--does it matter?

I'm looking for a light setup for my new 90 gallon tank. I've found this on ebay: 48" 4ft Metal Halide Aquarium Reef Light 716W T5 T-5 HO - eBay (item 120415565491 end time May-13-09 19:34:07 PDT)

Its 2-3 times cheaper than the coralife, current usa models. Anyone ever heard of ADV+ lights? I did some research and found that its made by a company called ZX Aurora. ZS Aurora

Any input?

That's an Odyssea brand fixture. Some ppl have had issues with Odyssea fixtures, including them catching fire.
As far as the brand bulb, it doesn't say what kind of ballast or bulb is included, but there is a huge difference in performance between MH bulbs.

Ugh, figured as much, but not what I was hoping to hear. Guess I'll have to shell out the thousand bucks for the 48" Current USA model for my new tank. I have a Current USA fixture for my old hex, and it works great and reliably. Thanks
