Yeah, these HID lights kind of seem like novelty to me.  I have to wonder how they caught on though as they were originally used for industrial lighting in warehouses; there are always some on the ground outside of a hotel.  I've always thought they seemed pretty cool but kind of clamorous.  For instance, they require a seperate (expensive) "ballast" to run as well as a special socket.  They get extremely extremely hot and seem to vary in "quality".  I do think they are a must have for any large sclae grow though.  CFLs are just really energy efficient and LEDs are space ship tail lights compared to a nice 600W MH.  What seperates HID lamps from others is their lumen output, they suck up a whole lot of energy, but put out a lot of growable light at the same time.

I've never grown with HID lamps, but I do have 2 chinese made LED panels.  They work very well, but I don't think their output can be put in the same category as HID lamps.  They are also a lot more expensive.  I think their benefits include their broad spectrums and energy efficiency.  I'd like to see them replace HIDs one day =) It might save some old men their scalps. 

They are really fun to grow with; LEDs.

I do the MH for veg and HPS for flower thing.

Want a little excitement just let one of those bulbs heat up and put one drop of cold water on it.

I'm assuming there will be some sort of explosion perhaps?  Something tells me Coaster might actually try this.
