yea... Just ordered..
ended up w

3 ATI Blue +
1 ATI Blue Special
1 GE 6500K (maybe the MOST underrated daylight lamp out there)
1 KZ 14k New Gen Coral Light

These with my 24 Cree LED built into the fixture should give off a romantic glow :)

Did some research a while back and yes, ATI was one of the best. But, for about 1/2 the price, the ones I got from Jenn seemed to match up pretty close in a study I saw on another forum. The guy ran a six month test side by side with a par meter. I would check with Jenn at Image Ocean if you get a chance. She has a decent stock of them as well.

What brand bulbs are you referring to?
