Any opinions on iQuatics T5 controllers?

And if I were to order one of their two tube kits, any advice on which of their tubes would be best for a low tech 250L tank?
Aquablue 50:50
Blue Plus
Purple

I have a 4 tube iQuatics unit connected to my PLC controller. I personally found the Tropical tubes "too pink" for my liking and now run two iQuatics tropical along with a pair of Juwel HiLite Day.

The other tubes you mention are very high Kelvin (colour temperature) and not really suitable for a planted tank, the plants will look white and washed out with colour temperatures much above 8000K.
