  10. Quiz Night Boys And Girls

    can cortana search for me ? lol
  11. it depends on how u view the lighting for me it was mostly running costs. for £500 i spent worked out cheapest over the life span of the leds vs MH, t5 (factoring in bulbs as well) . me i love gadgets as well so got led unit that can dim so i can have sunset and sunrise look. from my research before i got my unit, LED as basically took over from metal halides ,very hard to find them new now. but much cheaper to run but also limited lifespan. (replacing whole led units every 3-5 years) personally for me LED was way i wanted to go. in the end its both a personal choice and budget . if u can afford it go LED :) gavin
