ELS said:vertex = overpriced garbage.
get real strobes, still the most cost effective by far and have been getting the job done effectively for the past god knows how many years.
6 head strobe = $200 6 head vertex = $400 Strobes are brighter.

ELS said:Maybe you should not shut the rest of the car down and leave only the strobes on... if you have all your lights running this should be no issue.

Jared @ 911Lights said:I'm surprised to see no discussion of the any of the Nova Hide-A-LED products. They were the first to market with a "universal" Hide-A-Way LED and now have 7 different products in their Hide-A-LED line. Their prices are not as ultra-competitive as the Whelen Vertex, but they are in the ball park of the higher end Hide-A-Way LEDs from Code-3 and Juluen (Axixtech, Sho-me, and FedSig Branded). Their tier pricing (charging more for Blue, Green and White) does seem to alienate some customers, and I am not a huge fan of the heat-sink fins that they use on their higher-end Hide-A-LEDs, but overall a very solid product. I believe that they are the only company making Pop-In Hide-A-Way LEDs as well as the only one making them in Purple.
Jared @ 911Lights said:Do you care to elaborate? If you are talking about the product quality, the light output, etc...
The N500s, their first generation Hide-A-LEDs were directional, and are similar to the Sound-Off Undercovers. The Newer W600s, X1100s and Z1000s are all non-directional and actually fill the light housing rather than looking like an LED lighthead mounted in a housing.
