I like the Ray 2 because it's cool and new. It will be cheaper to run and I won't have to replace bulbs. Also getting questions answered on this forum with Finnex on here.

I like the Solar T5 because I can change bulbs and with the third bulb I can run a afternoon blast more like nature does.

I don't think I could go wrong with either fixture, but I guess I'm just looking for opinions?

If you are buying new today, I would definitely go with LED.
I just stumbled upon http://www.buildmyled.com/

Also look at Kessil A150W Amazon Sun and AquaRay Grow Lights.
