When I last looked into them they were quite good but to expensive, but that was a few years ago.

What's great about them is that they don't get too hot so you can get them really close to your ladies.

Be very careful which LED lights you buy. Do your research some are $300.00 and perfect for your application others are $1500.00 and not worth the steel cable holding them up.
Skunk magazines grow guy is the Rev and he did a side by side comparison and saw very little difference in quality and growth, both did very well. He also said the LED light market is full of useless overpriced lights. I don't remember which brand he got for the article I think they were in the neighborhood of $1500.00 though.
Some of the pros are:
Less heat
Can be placed close to plants
Can use only the right spectrum
Great supplemental lighting (ie. dark corners of the grow room)

Difficult too gauge quality.
May need more fixtures than HPS

Just some thoughts off the top of my head.
