Any experience with revolights?

Im looking to upgrade my lights from simple LED/Halogen front and LED rear to revolights. I work twelve hour shifts so im on the road from 5:30 to 6:30 & 6:30 to 7:30, which isnt a problem during summer, but the rest of the year its quite dark during that time.

I think it's kinda pointless at the pricepoint. I've seen quite a people with them around here, the front and rear throw is at best for 'visibility' and consists of two very narrow bands with a deadspot in the middle. The side lighting is reasonable but I don't really see the benefit. If you want good side lighting as well as front/rear I recommend going with a light and motion vis360 + vis180 micro in the back, it'll be cheaper and you'll be more visible. I like the battery indicator on the light motion products a lot.
