Still better off with T5 or Power Compacts, IMHO. The best LEDs are
similar in efficiency, but far more expensive.
Coralife fixtures are notorious, at least amongst my local club, for
failing. The ballasts were cheap, the ventillation horrible, fans prone
to failure... everyone's had much better results with AH Supply kits or
equivalent semi-open design with good air ventilation.
