Anyone using these to start seedlings? If so what are you using? Do you like them as compared to florescents?

I am seriously thinking of getting 2 or 3 fixtures

I've used them but am not convinced. I have a 125 watt tri-band whose coverage area may be equal to a 400-watt HID. But in side by side comparisons, I get better seedlings from both the MH as well as 125-watt CFL. My LED does do great on a
Dwarf Cavendish banana in a DWC hydro system, though!
