Default Router bits - Lee Valley vs CMT

I usually use CMT router bits which are absolute top notch. I've been looking at the bits from Lee Valley as their prices are attractive and I've heard their name mentioned a few times.

Can anybody comment on the quality of Lee Valley bits, particularly the 45 degree chamfer bit? Any feedback from users of both Lee Valley and CMT would be good.

From what I've heard, Whiteside bits are by far the best.

In my experience, Lee Valley is very good re: replacing anything defective.
I use mostly Freud bits, but CMT are certainly highly regarded (and priced!)

I like Whiteside and amana. For 45s on a couple of speaker boxes I'm sure the lee vally bits would do fine.
