Buy from SNM. I have no experience with any of the items you listed, but I have seen the responder on various vehicles, and they work great.
I have an axxixtech mini bar, not the tiny one on SNM but the bigger one, and it works great too. Not a bad price either. Then I stuck two mini falcons behind my rear seats headrests against my rear window and they give great light output towards the rear. I didnt see the sense in getting a 4-6 strobe kit and having two in the front if people wont see them.

I'm a big fan of Star products since they're right down the road from me and generally make pretty good stuff. Quite honestly though, that Halo mini bar is pretty weak - as are most of the "round" LED lights I've seen. (The NYSDOT has converted most of their plow trucks from rotators to round LEDs and they're absolutely pathetic.) There are strobe and rotator versions of that same mini bar that are both significantly less expensive and significantly brighter.
So of the mini bars you've noted, I'd have to recommend either of the Whelen products over the Star.
Siren net is perfectly fine to purchase stuff from. I have used them many times before. As well as snm. A lot of the "siren net brand lights" are actually made from sound off so you know its not a Chinese knock off.
i just installed a 16" Whelen Mini-Century, and all i can say is that for the money it is extremely bright. I havent used it in the snow, but i used it in my shop with the overhead lights on and it still flashed off the walls and ceiling. plus it was a great price from strobes n more $60 cheaper than siren for the model i got, and free shipping with plowsite code
I would go with the responder with the linear 500 modules as its twice as bright as the CON3 model and better off axis output. Of the other lights I'd go with the E4s or Whelen TIR3 both are much brighter than the ones you noted and good lights.
