I spent $7 on a light with 56 LEDs and I feel a bit guilty about the brightness.

The high power LEDs in good quality lights are a whole different kettle of fish. The LED alone can cost $5-$10 in bulk direct from the LED manufacturer. A cree xm-l will safely handle 10 watts of input, the 56 little leds in that light are very low power leds. They will probably be very blue in tint. And one will stop working every few minutes
Reminds me of the razor blade wars. "You need the new mach 16 razor with 16 blades, 15 just doesn't cut it any more..."
