Default Headlights other than Recon or Spyder?

Hey y'all I've been shoppin for some new headlights. I saw that spyder and recon lights have basically the same build, with the LED eyebrow thing. But does anybody have experience with Spec-D? or some other brands. I have been looking at them because they are cheaper, especially several I have found on eBay.
These for example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270998943996...ht_2935wt_1396

I've seen seen these lights in different brands, but they all seem to be the same physically.

here is a video of the lights I'm lookin at,
Any opinions recommendations would be appreciated.
Cheers.

I just realized I did not post this in lighting. I am sincerely sorry and embarrassed...

They do look neat. And I think they just came out with quads. Look here --> http://www.automotivelightstore.com/ramquadhalos.aspx

However i am not sure if i trust myself to do it myself, with the whole baking your lights ordeal. The ACC does look better though.

Damn those are pretty cool looking, I just cracked open my quads to do a morimoto mini projector retro fit and I might have added those if I knew about it. As far as baking them the whole process and not hard at all, You have to be a complete dumbass to melt the lens/housing.

Black Hemi do you think you could do a quick write up of how you did yours? Hope its not too much to ask. i dont know what path to take on my lights, but i really want them black. LED/Halos are my second priority.

Taking the lens off
1. Set the oven at 230
2. Throw the headlight in with the lens facing towards you (on a baking sheet)
3. Let it bake for at least 14-15 mins
4. Pull it out then slightly bend back the clear tabs that hold the lens and housing together (grille side)
5. Start at the bottom working to the top (grille side) and start to separate the lens/housing pulling up on the lens and down at the bottom. You can use either a flat head or butter knife...I went with a butter knife because it has more surface to wedge in between the lens/ housing.
6. If you can't separate them stick them back in the oven or use a heat gun to heat as you work upward on the grille side.
7 Once you got the grille side pretty much separated I would stick them back in the oven for another 5-6 mins.
8. Take them back out and then start pulling up on the lens and pushing back on housing and the rest should separate like butter.

Pretty simple... just don't force them open or try to pry it open with that butter knife. If you start to struggle opening them the glue is not hot enough....just stick them back in the oven for a bit or use a heat gun.
