Well I can report they are well sealed. Spent the day driving around in a constant rain shower and no condensation.

They could do so much better!
Personally, I would never drive with them. See below. Here is an output shot someone posted up from these headlights with some quick, quick illustrations inlayed.
As seen in the OP's wall shots, right in the center of the cutoff there is a nice big dark spot. This doesn't look to be too much a problem on the wall.....but when you get out there on the road this is a HUGE safety concern. This spot should be the brightest, not the dimmest as this is the part of the beam pattern shooting down the road. Think about it like this.....road kill, live deer, tree, person, whatever in the middle of the road at 80 feet is simply not visible because of the terrible performance of the lights. You get 20 feet away from the subject and can finally clearly see it. Well.......you were already going 70mph on the interstate and that 60 feet was the difference between you being able to avoid collision with the subject vs plowing right through it. Getting some headlights because they look cool is one thing but sacrificing the safety of you, your passengers, and other drivers is another. My professional opinion is to stay away from these lights for now.
I say for now because I have purchased a set for some R&D. I will be ripping them apart and developing a drop-in upgrade for these terrible projectors. Still a little ways out on making this happen but it is on the schedule. Output of the planned projectors can be seen below.......light right where you need it!

I'd love a better projector! Enough to tear these open and replace em. They are fine to drive with, I see no worse with these than my stock ones but the hot spots are anoying as hell and honestly, kind of distracting. They remind me of the H11 vs. H11b issue.
They look cool but more importantly, saved me money on a stock pair of lights to repair my bumper clips.
