headlights

I have been looking around for some new headlights. I am looking to go the black and white route with my truck. (I know, a lot of people go that route, but i like it). Anyway, I was looking at some black, Halo HID lights on Ebay. Does anyone know anything about these? are they a decent light, or are the mainly for looks as in they dont produce much light at night. any help is appreciated.

I think the ebay lights are pretty crappy as far as light output goes.
I cant speak specifically on the 6.4 lights, but I have seen many of the "ebay" lights on different vehicles, and they all suck.
HID Projectors are not supposed to have plastic lenses
If your looking for improved light output, your best bet may be retro fitting some real projectors into a set of headlights
