    if money is not a problem your probably best off with a t5 ho or a 125 watt cfl but watch out for the heat they produce they can cook your plants or even start a fire if you are not careful
    led and metal halide are for people with a lot of experience that need a lot of light

    to add to the lumen note, lumens/watt is a great rate to calculate an know. most bang for the buck on electric bill
    True about the quality. Unfortunately the price difference between 4' T8 and 4' T5 is still rather large. Well it is up to the OP.

    great deal, really is only bout 20-30 bucks more. includes bulbs--->http://www.htgsupply.com/Product-HTG...T5-Fixture.asp

    10,000 lumens roughly double the output of T12 and t8 2 bulb fixtures plus t5s are the most efficient flouro light available.

    cheaper per bulb than the 4 foot 4 bulb they have. id just get one of these and get more of em when/if needed in future.

    at least now you educated OP, now the choice is all yours
