Between LED and HID? HID, hands down, no question.

A standard 55w H7 halogen bulb puts out about 1500 lumens, +/- 100-200 lumens or so depending on brand of bulb, age of bulb, etc.

The HID's in your link say 3000 lumens, and the LED's say 1200 lumens.

If you're ok with getting less light output from your headlights then I guess LED would be fine. Personally I would go HID or stay with your halogen bulbs, I wouldn't go LED yet until theres a better product out there.
