Need New Light

I need to get a new light for my 75 gal tank. I stated off with a Coralife T5 2 bulb light. But now I have bought some coral and I need a better light. I would love to get a LED but I have heard good and bad about them. I did find "Coralife Lunar Aqualight HO T5 Aquarium Light". Would like some help on this one, I want a light that will be great for any kind of coral I get and looks great when the light is on.

Taotronics LEDs seem to work well and are economically priced. They are available on eBay.

What are the positives/negatives you have heard on LEDs? A lot of folks are going to them... lower energy consumption and operating temperature are great features... but there is a huge variety of LEDs out there, and most are not ideal or even capable for sustaining a reef tank.

I have the taotronics led's, they run about $150 on ebay each. The led's definitely put out ALOT of light so that shouldnt be a concern/
