    What type of warranty does it come with? Yes a name brand does cost more but you get support and a warranty.

    I'll let you guys know what i think of 'em (just ordered two 4-head units). I went with the standard strobe though, not the LED.

    trust me, when it comes to warning lights you get what you pay for.....the knock offs might look good to start but they never hold up worth a damn. I have yet to own any cheap chinese warning lights of any kind that can even make it 1 year and still work like new. lightbars, strobes, interior or exterior. I now only buy whelen, code 3 or federal signal and have great luck. Just my 2 cents but spend the money and do it right the first time. Not only are the whelen kits better, brighter and last longer you can find them for 200-300 on ebay for nice 90 watt kits.

    Well, the nice man in the Brown truck just dropped them off.
    I've bench powered/tested the units and they're very impressive. Very bright (even in my VERY WELL LIT shop) and the flash patterns are decent enough. I'm hoping to begin the install this weekend.

    and unfortunately in a coupe months they will do one of two things....either flash about half power half the time or just not work all together. Best of luck!!! and hope the install goes well, I know some vehicles are a real pain.

    I'm pretty confident these units will last. They look fairly well built. And of course, under those plastic cases, it's the same technology.

    They come with a 1 year warranty, the light bars have a 3 year warranty. It is a Texas company. You can buy a plan to double the warranty too. So far I hear if there is a problem with the lights, they fix and return them real quick. In fact many are returned within days. YouTube has a number of the led lights on them. Also their web site shows the lights flashing.
