One thing you could compare is the ballast. The Tek's use a Triad made by Universal Lighting and they are a very high quality programmed start ballast. Also, the endcaps on my Tek are higher quality than say my Current USA Nova Extreme 4x39 watt T5. The Teks are very heavy duty in construction... Even the on off switches are backlit with water resistant covers.

I don't have any info on the AM, but you could start with components to help make a decision.

I don't have an opinion, but I've heard good things and they make a T5 2 bulb version at a reasonable price compared to Teks, just seem harder to find that's why I asked.
