7.5inch led bar install?

Ok, so i tried a 18watt china special flood light. didn't work for me, not bright enough, not enough throw. I'm looking at something a bit more powerful. So i was wondering, if anyone tried this one:
http://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/7-5Inch-...item5d4e4ab349

now before you all go jumping about buy made in the USA stuff and all that, i'm in Belgium. Shipping + vat + import duties would eliminate any more expensive options, as it would cost me about double what it costs you guys ;).
So, has anyone tried this particular unit? It looks better made than most of the stuff i see on the bay, but i do know that often doesn't mean much...
It would be awesome to mount something like that just below my headlight.

Looks like a copy of the Rigid SR 6"...

I have a similar Rigid mounted below my headlight, and it works well. Mine is the Rigid SR2. I can't speak to the China version, though.

thanks but like i said, that would be too expensive for me, after import taxes, VAT, and shipping.

I went a cheap option and so far so good.
9 inch, 54W, $45. Pretty happy with the result.

So I say, go for it!
