IceCap Metal Halide Pendants 250W

I have leds right now and im thinking of going to MH.. Ive only used T5's and currently have LED's.. Ill be setting up a 60G Rimless cube and was thinking of using this pendant for it. Ill be keeping Sps and Lps in the tank.

I know a guy that is selling 2 of them for 50 bucks a piece and are in like new condition and he would sell me just 1 of them if i want it. He sent me photos and they look pretty good. From what i read is that IceCap is out of business and you cant get parts for them anymore and i don't know how long the ballasts will last.

Is it worth buying these older pendants or should i just buy newer MH lighting?

Let me know your thoughts, im sure many people here have them, or have had them in the past..
