M-58 is a generic classification for 250w wire wound ballasts, it's an M-58 either way you look at it.

1) XM are the most bang for the buck and what i use.

2) Pulse, which is generated by the start-up cap

IceCap and ARO electronics, i did away with all my magnetic coil ballasts due to the heat the produce. the savings on power using the e-ballasts v/s the coil isn't overly high, I'd venture to say 10-15% but the heat difference of the ballast is a world of difference.
