I've promoted T5 lighting as long as I've been in the hobby. I am here today to announce... I still do. I haven't jumped onto the LED wagon, and until they can equal what T5's can do, at an affordable price, I'll continue to use T5's. Turns out I'm not the only one who thinks so. Ryan from BRS does a pretty good job of explaining the differences between Metal Halide, T5, and LED... and why T5 is the better option. On behalf of the LED lovers, he does admit that T5/LED hybrids are pretty cool.
