a larger reflector will almost always produce better output (assuming the same quality components), so the traditional Daylighter is better. That said, the difference isn't really noticeable because of all the math and stuff involved in light output, lumens, candlepower, inverse square, mumbo jumbo. The slimlites are more flexible for mounting due to the smaller size, but cost a bit more. If that extra cost isn't a problem... go for it. They both have an amazing warranty (assuming you buy from an authorized retailer) and use quality components. I had the long range slim lites on my roof (XJ) until I switched to HIDs.

Slimlites

I have them mounted on the bottom of my windshield and really like them. I'm afraid they would be a little much on any kind of nightride with friends though. With them on you would keep anyone in front of you blinded. That said, I still like them.
