Well Belfast-biker, I actually like the looks of the Nebula. To each his own I guess.

I've noticed that with more LED lights. I think they've done that to maintain a reasonable battery life as five white LED's powered by 2 AA batteries would mean a shorter runtime then some other white LED lights on the market (with 3 LED's, 4 AA's, etc.). But that's just guessing. At least they leave holes so you can put LED's in there yourself. Three white LED's are way brighter then 5 of those green ones anyway.
As for durability, I don't have too much experience with them but I bought some Nebula VL-300's on clearance and put one on one of my friend's fork crown (with a bracket). A couple of days ago, we where riding and passed a small park where some kids where playing football. One of the kids accidentally kicked the ball over the (short) fence, it went in the direction of my friend and hit the right side of the Nebula. Other then a slightly bent bracket the light was fine. Nothing broke or came apart. Could be good luck but that ball went pretty hard.
