I've noticed a lot of people switching to the led because in almost every way they're better than just bulbs lights. I'm just curious if anyone is running them? I found a site thay sells them and from the research I've done they are really competitively priced. I'm thinking about buying a couple and try them out. Here's the link if y'all wanna check it out.

I find LEDs have a lot more glare than say, halogen lights do. They don't throw light downrange well. They're obnoxiously bright at relatively close distance though (which is probably what's selling a lot of them).

Big part of their problem is their color temperature (°K) is too high (making the light appear bluish). Best lights are between 3300-4500K, which I've yet to see any commercial LED offerings in that range (halogen is usually 3200-3400K)

It's all in the reflector housings with those light bars, you get what you pay for with them for sure.

For the price they had listed for them they might be worth a shot. Plus I'm looking for something that put out a lot of light but have a low profile. Plus they have an option for amber lights which I like for dust and fogs. I just like the look of them and how you pack some power in how small them suckers are.
