    Pros:

    pretty bright

    I made a household bathroom bulb with this and it works well inside a white batroom diffuser. Drove it at 1A Vfw is 3.9V glue to a cpu heatsink. I just use old transformer with resistor in series to drive it.

    Cons:

    no cons other than it gets pretty warm. I'm using an old pentium M cpu heatsink to release the heat. It seems warm to the touch.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is all connected in series so my circuit is pretty simple. Transformer is 16V hook up with a 0.5 ohm resister in series with this. Will see how long it last.

    Bottomline:

    Pretty cool for a household project. I would recommend to buy.
