  • Bright light, but doesn't last that long

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Yes, the brightness from this bulbs are as bright as advertised. I've tried some other LEDs (not from DealExtreme), and they are not as bright as this.

    + Bright light

    + Cool white

    + Cheap!

    Cons:

    I've bought 8 LEDs in total, 2 of them do not longer work (after a month or so) and 1 is flickering. I use them as parking bulbs in my car, so it could be due to the variation in the voltage.

    - Build quality could be better: The soldering on the pins are easily destroyed if bent (sometimes necessary to make contact in the socket)

    - One of my 8 LEDs are flickering

    OtherThoughts:

    Mind that the beam is consentrated in a forward beam and not spread. This could be both an advantage or a disadvantage, whatever your use would be.

    Remember they are polar sensitive (as all LEDs), so you might turn them around in the socket to make them work the first time.

    Bottomline:

    They are cheap, they are bright and the white color is very white – but you should be prepared that they don't last that long.

    But to this price, you should buy some spares to swap the faulty ones.
