angle eye option purchase - help !!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MTEC-Ver-3-0...60491427924%26


I'm getting ready to purchase this angle eye led from eBay but not sure which brand is good.

I'm tired of buying bed one that burn after a few months. This will be my second or third pair already and lose count.

Please show where to go or what to buy-recommendation please.

Thanks,

+1

I don't know how you had so many bad ones. Did you go with the cheap $20-$30 ones?

MTEC V3's are used by close to everyone on here!

Do the Mtec bulbs give the error messages on start up? The previous LEDs i bought were cheaper and threw the errors. I love the look of the white led's but hate the extra chimes and error messages. Thanks guys
