Yes, leds are newer, AND they are a lot more adaptable than t5's for sunrise/sunset and even color control (dimmers rather than changing out t5 bulbs). Oh, and they run cooler if they are designed properly (mine run very close to room temperature).

But all light sources (MH, t5, led and combo) are just making light. Newer fixtures don't make better light.
