Have not seen the Orion lamp up close, so can not help you there.
However, I have the MM and the leds are blueish and has really bad color rendering! I replaced the leds with 3pc High quality 4 watt Hitachi leds.
Much better, but the leds where more expensive than the lamp

Unless you want a Blue or Purple lamp I would get the Orion one.

How do U mean? U replaced only 3 LED's or replaced them all with 3 piece LED's. I'd take the black one but I want carbon end plates which U can't seem to place on the Orion 1. Also the Orion 1 doesn't seem to be able to stand up.

I removed the Led pcb completely and glued three leds directly to the aluminium.
My leds runs at arround 10.0V so I put a small current limiting pcb inn there as well with a dimming function so the leds wont burn up.
I limited them down to 350mAh pr led, so it's now arround 10 watts in total.
It put out twice as much light as an ott-lite.

It was a lot of work and allot of research, but worth it.

My lamp is at work, so I will uppload some pictures for you tomorrow.

Looks like the Orion lamp is easier to mod for high quality leds....
Just let me know when you have a lamp and I will guide you thru it.
