Aftermarket head lights/ HID

Has anyone seen or used these headlights? I replaced the stock headlight bulbs with HID bulbs in a 2004 F-150 I once had but the light glared bad and was blinding to oncoming drivers. I was tired of people flashing their high beams. These look like a more "directed" beam. Not sure I like the halo affects though. These are the closest to stock look they have. Opinions?

yes, i had a set. They would blink and every 5 minutes or so, the drivers side would turn off. They were just horrible but look great! I had so many problems with them

Did customer service take care of you? When they were functional were they pretty bright? Thats ashame. Just sounds like they are poor quality. Which grade HID did you get. I know they have a cheap one, a moderate one, and a pricey one. Thanks for the info.

customer service was pretty good, they offered me a refund and emailed me a shipping label. The return took a couple weeks. They were like 6000k brightness, they look outstanding but the low beam hids were just terrible. I know a couple guys that have had problems also. It really is too bad because they are the best aftermarket headlights IMO.
