No experience with it. We recently ordered the fixture below based on recommendations here and elsewhere. We haven't received it yet (should be today or tomorrow), but it may be worth a look.

Understood. For a reef, I'd recommend T5HO over just about any PCs.

+1 on T5s. I have T5s and I love how there's many combinations you can add to make your corals 'pop'.

Remember, you gotta be careful what you order. Sometimes you get what you pay for in the SW hobby.
