Like has been stated, comparing LEDs and MH
is like comparing old school muscle cars and todays turbo charged rice burners. They are both cars and both can do some incredible things, just a different way of going about it. LEDs do what MH
does without the heat. The tech is still advancing, but is doing so quickly with how cheap the price of pieces and equipment has been. MH
will probably never go away and many will still continue to use them into the future even as LED
tech continues to advance. Same as taking a 68 mustang out for a spin on warm summer days. It would be really neat to see some hybrid action out of these two technologies though to see if there can be a meeting for the best of both worlds. A lower watt MH
to keep heat down backed up by some LEDs would def be an interesting trial for somewhere down the road.
