    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Bright and powerful. Pretty straightforward replacement for CREE XR-E, with small challenges to focusing and power supply. Cons:2nd set of boards I received were serial, not parallel. Had to scratch trace routes on board and solder together leads on each side of... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Super bright, great white tint, much easier to focus then P7. Cons:Leads of emitter not all soldered together on receipt, but very easy to fix. Thermal management definitely an issue. Must make sure that whatever you put this in is well heatsinked. My first on... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Very white, very bright, very nice upgrade from single die emitter, especially CREE. Easy to swap a 20mm CREE XR-E star with this MC-E star (if you can solder). Star is aluminum for good thermal transfer. (Hopefully, emitter slug is soldered directly to aluminum... Read more
