LEDs depend on the optics to control coverage and PAR, so it is a bit hard to make a direct comparison.
I am very conservative, so take that into mind, but I think the taotronic Chinese panels are about
: 212 watt LED
= 400 watts MH
More efficient LEDs can be up to 3-1 in efficiency. I can't speak to the t5's but my guess it is about the same as MH
