Finally got around to wiring up the spotties will go for a drive tonight and set them up and see how they go, I had light force genisus 50w hid on my last ute absolutely loved them hopefully these over priced things go as good.

What are they? Arb LEDs? TBH I've thought they wouldn't be very good. Most light sources need a reflector

Unfortunately, most ARB stuff is overpriced and overrated.

The spotties from SA LED Lighting get good feedback, but they are more than twice the wattage and a lot cheaper. They have a full 2 year replacement warranty too.

At the end of the day, watts are watts.

Personally, I've found halogen are the way to go as you get natural colour return which LED and HID do not get. I find driving for any extended period with LED or HID to be tiring on my eyes.

They are the ARB intensity's first led spotties I've had

I disagree with your first statement but agree with you second.

E.g compare cheap LED down lights to high end.
The high end LEDs will have a more concentrated beam in a colour closely matching that of halogen.
The cheap ones are just patches of glare on stuck to the ceiling.

I concur and I should have been more specific. If the offering from both manufacturers both have 3W or 5W Cree LED's and drivers, then the one with more LED's is going to produce more light.

There are plenty of crap clone Chinese LED's out there.

Ben.
