T5 lights on ebay...from aquatic mart

I'm thinking about a DIY lighting options vs. getting a canopy. This T5 lighting kit, on eBay, seems like a very reasonable price:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Comes with bulbs your choice 10k/Actinic for a total of 324 watts, for roughly $290 inc'd shipping. Seems like a fine deal, I've emailed the seller some questions and he was very responsive. I have a canopy that I believe restricts me from using MH (about 6" total clearance only in the canopy above the water), so have been looking at vho, pc and t5 options. Seems like t5 is the way to go, or perhaps I might go for a diy pc or vho kit. Oh btw I will have a 90g tank (24" depth), plan on some corals, anemones. Probably not sps.

Just wondering what questions you would ask the seller? Maybe I'll be a guinea pig for the group, buy these and let you know how it works out. Petmeister.com also has similar lights at a similar price on ebay.
