Never tried the greenpower, I hear they are very good. They're also quite expensive. Phillips son t plus or osram are great. Sunmaster and Sylvania make some hps with a touch of blue. 

Basically I stick with the big names, never gone wrong with em.

The green power are the best in that category tbh but both sunmaster and sylvania arew good too. 

 

Cheaper bulbs aren't always bad, though I've heard consistently poor reviews of the lumii offerings.

Philips invented HPS and CMH. I use Green Powers.... not that I'm an authority! :D

Theres not a great deal of difference between them all mate come the end of the grow. Ive tried most of them including green power and I didn't think they were all that especially for how much they charged for them

i useally use cheapos, and find they work well enough. the lumii black and omegas are pretty crap, id move up a notch and go with sunblasters or sunmasters, to be honest. 

i couldnt force myself to pay nearly 50 sheets for a lamp, f*ck that!

If its the ordinary HPS then a Sunmaster will be fine. I used them for years but I use the 400v bulbs now

If it's standard sodiums then Osram Vialox Son T Plus have high lumen ratings and last for years.
