Or you can just spend your money once and get a better quality one. Sure if the glas breaks you can do whatever but that doesnt change the fact the rest of it is lower quality.

the fact is its only $100.

just like HIDs from ebay..

theyre $30 a set and if something breaks in them its like $10 to fix for a set of bulbs or one ballast.... so why buy expensive ones when you can have 3 times the light bars for the price of 1 brand name?

Quality quality quality. Makes all the difference, speaking from experience. Just think 100$ spent on something cheap that could possibly fail sooner than the quality part lets say the good one is 50-75$ more well your already spending 100$ whats 50-75$ more on a quality part.

I have the 10" cheapo from amazon and i also have the dualies cheapos like the rigids. I have a buddy who paid for the rigid and you can literally hold them up next to each other and not tell the difference. These are all made in some Chinese factory with different manufacturer names stamped on. Get what you pay for is a croc..... you pay for the name and the customer service. Pic doesn't do it justice. Its nearly as bright as any rigid or rugged ridge 20" you'll find.

The one thing I will say between the hanma brand and mine. Other then the lens is the led liftspan. I will get another 20k hours supposedly but yours could last more then that 30k statemnet who knows.

The Chinese lights are VERY different from Rigid. Just by looking at them you can tell the difference.

I'm sorry. But no you can't. I've got a friend with a knock of 20" and a rigid 20". I'll see if I can get some pics up for you. They're identical.

Lens design is where the Chinese bars can't compete. They can come close in IP rating and in lifespan, some have the same polycarbonate cover, but they don't have the same lens which is what really matters.

other than the mounting point being in a different location these lights are identical. people keep harping on lens design. thats .02 of the full 1.00. that lens is crystal clear and polycarbonate. and more than likely off the same line as the rigid lens.

Sorry, was using "lens" when I meant "reflector". Not the PC cover, but the actual reflective surface what focuses the light.
