Default Why not more metal halide?

Just curious as to why more people don't use these. I use a 175watt over my 80 gallon and it makes the tank look amazing, natural looking shimmer along the substrate, plants are growing like weeds, and it's super easy to move out of the way when I want to aquascape.

Is there something better I'm missing out on?
