Quick help with DX and quality

My dinky little LED light no longer cuts it, and I don't really want to jump into the magicshine, so a DX flashlight seems to be my best bet. On the website they have a bunch of different models (MTE, aurora, ultrafire...) and my question is, is there one that's better than the rest? One that's more durable?

2 mode is fine for me, as I've heard the strobe is too fast and can be seizure inducing...

Lots of websites in US now carrying P7 flashlights.. If you are looking for quality DX is not the place.. It can be very hit and miss with quality.. 7/10 lights I have bought from them have been good over the years, but sometimes you get a dud and getting a refund is next to impossible.. Pay a little extra and get one from a US seller.. Candlepower website also has a lot of people selling there used lights for a good price..
