There are lots of sites mentioning and testing LED bulbs why should I trust that site more than any other?
I wouldn't call Morimotos or the Diode Dynamic bulbs inferior but I would call cheap bulbs with exaggerated claims to be less trustworthy.

If you like them fine. I'm sticking with the higher quality stuff.
Lol because bulbfacts is about the most renowned testing site there is. They actually measure the lumens/lux rather than taking manufacturer claims to heart. They also test the longevity of the bulbs. You're not sticking with higher quality, you're sticking with name brand. The two are not synonymous. But ignorance is bliss lol. Young pups I swear.

Thanks for calling me young, I'm sure my grand kids would get a kick out of it and it does make me feel good.

I don't make money off either brands, not sure if you do but if you like them more power to you. I've never heard of that site but I won't argue you with you, I'm going to stick to buying the more quality ones that don't tend to exaggerate facts. You buy what you want.

Weren't you the guy who always talks about not spreading bogus information but here you are spreading bogus info that's purely anecdotal lol? That's cute. Again, you're not buying higher quality, you're buying a name brand. Learn the difference kid

Also, please tell us the equipment you used to test your product to measure the quality standards in order to support your claim and refute the findings of bulbfacts.com? What was your testing criteria, because they documented theirs. Just curious how you tested yours? 😁😁

What is the exact lumen reading/hot spot lux level that you measured from your bulbs? What equipment did you use to test it?

I used the same equipment you used to test bulbs, my eyes.
The only bogus info is you thinking I'm a kid which with your track record, bogus info is nothing new and neither is being butthurt.

I said I'm not going to argue with you. Buy what you want and I will buy what I want. No idea why you keep getting so butthurt over my posts. Take it to PM if you want to argue.

So in other words, your word is bulls*** and you have no way of refuting the claims of someone who actually bought and tested these products. Good to know 😁😁😁 I guess with that much of your stupid showing I shouldn't bother trying to fix you. At least do everyone else a favor and don't point them in the wrong direction because you've invested your ego in your $130 purchase and don't want to admit that there's a better product for less that you missed.

Damn you are childish. You get so angry that someone else doesn't like the same things you do so you act like a little boy.
I won't buy the cheap crap LEDs on Amazon, no matter how much you whine and cry about it.

Take it to PM so you don't further embarrass yourself, crybaby.

Oh I'm sorry you misunderstood me. I'm not mad that you like yours better. I just don't like hypocrites who spread bogus information. The hikaris a better with documented proof. Btw, your LEDs are sold on Amazon, you own Amazon LEDs. Congrats lol

Yes a lot of things I buy are on Amazon. What I won't buy are the cheap crap LEDs from them, just like I said.

Haha so your rationale is that because it's more expensive it's higher quality? That cute and naive lol. Again, you are the perfect sucker for a salesman.

For God's sake little boy must I break it down to you?

I like the name brand ones and feel they are higher quality and would be easier to get help with warranties. I don't trust the exaggerated cheaper bulbs from amazon.
Kudos to you for finding a website that likes the bulbs you picked. I can find sites that like the bulbs I picked. Big deal.

Is that explanation ok with you or are you going to talk like a little baby again and get frustrated? Let it go. I like something other than what you do, big deal. People can buy what they want.
