    Hi Pectinia, while I've not had any experience with the various types of T5's maybe some of our members can discuss their opinions on them. Bob

      I've used some of the various makes. However bear in mind other than the lousy AB/AM T5 hood, the rest of the Euro makes aren't really here in the US. I like the SLS tek light and reflectors. I've got one over the top of my office 55. very nice. runs cool. Certainly zoos and shrooms and softies seem happy under it. I don't want to worry about CA so no hard stuff.

      I used SLS tek and IC retrofits on a 180g previously. The IC is slightly better in terms of reflective performance and easier to clean, but it is also a bit wider which can be a concern. The ATI reflectors are also available and are comparable to the IC in performance but are even a bit wider.

      Bulb wise, the vast majority of the European bulbs are all out of the same factory with different labels anyways. The Asian import bulbs still to date haven't "wowed" me except the Helios superblue or something like that. However longevity is still a concern

          They perform ok. They don't last all that long IME.
