Which is a better light.. U80 XM-L or KD C8 or should I buy the Ultrafire UF-980L

Let me know what you think, I have already ordered the U80 XM-L T6 1000 Lumen 1-Mode for $27.49 and the KD C8 CREE XM-L T6 1000 Lumen 3-Mode ....

I have not received them yet but I keep seeing the UltraFire UF-980L 980-Lumen T6 for $42.75 and reading good things. Do you think what I have ordered is 

Just as good and as bright? Thank you, for your replies..

Yes they will all be similar brightness depending on how hard they are driven, XML can be driven up to 3amps max. Some will go above this depending on battery and driver combination. Some driver go Direct Drive, which can be high as 5Amps. This is Bad for the Led.

If you have a U80 coming and a KD C8 then a Trustfire X9 makes more sense than a 980L.
