  • Good price, So-so packaging

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

    Pros:

    Good price, nice and bright LEDs with good colour purity. Comes with connector and built-in current limiting resistors so you can hook straight to 12V.

    Can be cut in to 3LED segments for smaller applications.

    Cons:

    Packaging could be better- Comes in a plastic baggie, and while it arrived in good shape, I can see a potential for transit damage if you have odd-shaped items in your order or if the mailman is having a bad day. Feels sturdy though, so not as fragile as you might think.

    OtherThoughts:

    Great for low-level or small area lighting... but look at brighter options if you want to do a larger area. Sticky tape on back is a nice feature and makes mounting a bit easier.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you need RGB LEDs for cheap/experimenting.
