Who makes th best Angel Eyes?

I am new to the forum and I've been researching info on who makes the best/most reliable angel eyes. From what I can tell there is a lot of debate around the subject. Proper installation seems to be key. Not to start a war, but who makes a reliable angle eyes. I live in Ohio so it gets damn cold (6 degrees out this morning). I am slightly concerned with cost but it's second to quality/dependability. This question may have already been answered somewhere but I couldn't find it. Any info is greatly appreciated.

I live in Canada and I run the preditor chromiums and it was -28F here yesterday and the chromiums still lit up no problems just make sure you request the cold weather ballasts when you order them.

I actually just installed the Umnitza brand the other day on my car. I live in California though, so no really cold weather here, however I know they have a cold weather ballast as the post above states.

I got predator chromiums and want to go back to my ebay CCFL. 1 ring does not light up very well, and takes forever to get bright. I had to replace 2 rings, and in cold weather it takes forever to get bright. I am very disappointed with them.

I've had mine since fall 2004 and have never blown a ballast or ring, they've been very reliable. The only downside is in cold weather. The rings take a few minutes to get to their full brightness.

I've got the Pred Chromiums from Umnitza! They are the best! Never had any problems with them and within a few minutes the rings are bright, even in broad daylight you can see them clearly!

Umnitza FTW!
