PIAA 580 vs IPF 900xs vs Lightforce 170

So, I am ready to mount my N-Fab light bar and add some lights. I have owned PIAA 580s in the past and they are great lights; however, I don't know a whole bunch about the IPFs or Lightforce. I have done plenty of research; however, I am looking for those with personal opinions/experience.

Thanks for the help.

Had ipfs and swapped them to 55 watt hids
Had 4 240 light force and are good if u like the lightweight and easy lense change
Piaa in my opinion is better of the three
I bought the O'Reillys auto zone etc 7" hids and they blow them away distance wise and brightness. 130 ea. But parts aren't replacsble.
Now I run all Vision X led bars and 4 9" 70watt hids on my truck. Can't touch it
Hope this helps

Appreciate your input. Already picked up two sets of 580s and will install them after the big guy puts them under the tree. Thanks!
