They cost a bit more than incandescent or fluorescent components, but produce much more light per unit of electricity used. Alternatively, they are not as effective as LED lighting, however they cost as little as one-tenth as much for similar systems.
The two main kinds of HID lamp used for growing are:
Metal halide (MH), which produce light that is blue-ish white and are normally used during vegetative development.
High pressure sodium (HPS), which produce light that is more on the red-orange end of the spectrum and are used during the blooming stage.
In addition to bulbs, HID lighting setups require a ballast and hood/reflector for each light. Some ballasts are developed for use with either MH or HPS lamps, while many more recent designs will run both.
If you can’t manage both MH and HPS bulbs, begin with HPS as they deliver more light per watt. Magnetic ballasts are cheaper than digital ballasts, but run hotter, are less efficient, and harder on your bulbs. Digital ballasts are normally a better option, however are more pricey. Be careful of inexpensive digital ballasts, as they are often not well protected and can create electromagnetic disturbance that will affect radio and WiFi signals.
