Since this has been hashed over the past few days... I would say check out this Thread to see the thoughts.

i agree...look around at the other threads about it. This topic has been completely mauled over.

For now tho, unless you've got the money, T5's and MH are the way to go. Each one has its benefit and whatnot.

But the solaris stuff is so new its not really been tested out a whole ton imo.

They are so insanely expensive at this point - new technology. Give it a couple years to work out the kinks and drive the price down and then they will have something.
