  • Great cost/performance ration

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * Cheap!

    * Nice layout (kind of standard, though), which can be separated into tiles 3 LEDs each with individual solder pads.

    * Decent light output.

    Cons:

    * The colors aren't properly balanced, red is much to weak. I get a White color around rgb(255,190,160), which obviously reduces luminosity a lot. Keep this in mind if you need to create somewhat accurate colors.

    * Not all solder pads are labeled, and some of them don't contain solder, while others do (lead-free, it seems. Keep this in mind if you only do lead-based soldering at lower temperatures.)

    OtherThoughts:

    Like previous comments said, the packaging is somewhat sparse, but all the LEDs I've tested so far survived the trip :)

    Each unit comes with a cable properly soldered onto one end, and a plug attached. So if you buy 3 of them, you won't get one 3m strip.

    Bottomline:

    Nice product, especially considering the price. Pretty decent for a mood light; due to bad color balance, it might not be the best solution for a LED display though (or similar).

    Anyway, I'm definitely going to buy more of those ;)
