backstory??? do tell. I know they used to be called something else, BML or something.
Agree on the LED's, I converted to expensive P.L. Light Hortileds and I love them so far. Of course it cost an arm and a leg, but I feel like it was worth it. They use pretty much the same spectrum as NeoSol, it definitely works, the light doesn't look as bright as HPS to our eyes, but it's loaded with red and blue, to the plants it's 2-3 times as bright as HPS.
I usually tell friends that want to improve their lighting to just try a Hortilux bulb. It's much cheaper than converting to CMH or LED and it's got enough extra blue to work really well on cannabis.
