I haven't really read up on them for at least a year now...last I heard, they were still going through testing with them. I'm sure folks have results by now.

I can also see an advantage in the fact that LEDs don't go bad...so I would think there to be a replacement cost saving on top of the electricity.

As for now, I'm still a VHO (440W) / HQI MH (2x250W - 1 400W) reefer with the chiller. Apparently, I love to argue with my wife come 'electric bill' day.
