    I've had the Techmax in for 6 months or so and have yet to have a single person flash me which is funny because with the stock halogens that wasn't the case. I'm certain I aimed them too low but it's right in that spot where they're still fully functional but not high enough to be a problem. Given the intensity of LEDs I'd rather it be in this spot

    I hear you, no matter what bulb we use in those housings, there is distortion involved with simply how the reflective mirrors are by nature, it's just that a weak halogen isn't likely to bright enough to bring that out. When it's from the bulbs being clearly too bright that the distortions are at very sharp angles, I call that the "kaleidoscope effect", but so far TechMax are the brightest ones with the least amount of distortion, still waiting to see how the Nineo look.

    anybody run this one or is running hid not led just for a comparison.
    its on sale and was wondering if anybody has pulled the trigger I was contemplating trying their led instead but wanted to see if there is a good difference between the two

    one of the reasons also I am considering is that I can get the 5k pure white light over the bluish one I currently have.

    The only HID set that's made for reflectors is the DeAuto LED, it is the only one that is the proper length/filament spot as halogen and is also 5000k. I had ordered it but had problems getting them installed properly and returned them, but another review shows they work well but do have a bit of rainbow effect along the cutoff.

    How about their Led version from that same company it also appears to be one of the few selections in the 5k ranged just curious if you or anybody else has personal experience with them. a few pics would be even sweeter.

    Yes, Xenon Depot are definitely among those that I'd like to try, but after looking closer I wouldn't be surprised if they perform very similar to the Morimoto 2.0, very similar design, same LED's used and power consumption, but in a passive cooled package... I'm running the Morimoto's, as they were gifted to me, but honestly, for $35 TechMax actually works slightly better but at a more bluish color temp. It all comes back to our housing only handling so much light output properly... But also, if the claimed actual output of 1900 Lumen per side with the Xenon Depot is accurate and is 3800 per pair, that would be slightly lower output of the TechMax at 4100, although Lux and Lumens are different measurements so really can't compare exactly... They should perform well, again, likely very close to the Morimoto but would still love to test them personally, of course. :)

    Thank you to @Flaco and @danbfree, I ended up ordering the TechMax and using the Sealights for fog light duty and the light output now is phenomenal! The cutoff is much better than the Sealights as @Flaco mentioned with the Techmax. I'll have to do some more back-road driving to really see how they do, but so far I'm impressed with the capability of these bulbs to match the cutoff and glare of the stock halogens while providing much more light.
