That's really up to personal preference. I swear by FNI fixtures simply because they work great, have remote ballasts, and are cheap. I wouldn't replace a working current fixture with one though... that would be pointless. If what you've got works, why change it?

Yeah, I have two 4x24w fixtures. They work flawlessly... and the remote ballasts just make them that much better.

Sorry guys. It is my fault. I love my Current light. I meant bulbs!!!!!! I feel so stupid. I always replaced my bulbs with Current and heard like Usho, Geismman are much better... Sorry again..

Ohhhhhh, yeah, that changes things a bit. I've heard nothing but wonderful things about geissman bulbs... I just ordered two myself. they're a bit pricey, but from everything I've been told, well worth the money.
