Which lighting fixture type do you use?

Out of all of the endless different options that are available for lighting a saltwater tank, which one do you use and why?

With the high popularity that LED light fixtures are getting, many are making the jump fully over, or have a hybrid setup (partial LEDs, half T5/other type of lighting bulb), with many still using the T5 lighting fixtures that were a staple back in the day to allowing for a bright enough color spectrum needed for corals. Pricing used to be a big issue with LEDs, but now they are slowly getting lower in price while also proving to be exactly what can fit the bill color spectrum.
