  • An affordable piece of electronics

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - You get a wired, resistor-equipped, out-of-the-box set of 35 IR LEDS
    - It actually has an LDR-sensor to detect the correct level of darkness for the IR's to shine
    - The price, compared to individual LEDS, is good
    - The hole in the middle is convenient (for camera lenses)
    - It has mounting holes all over it
    - Seem sturdy and well-built

    Cons:

    - You can see the LEDs glow, which looks cool, but is beside the point
    - It does not come with a corresponding plug. Luckily the socket can be stripped to two bare leads
    - The board tends to heat up
    - The circuit board is bare (good for DIY projets, but inconvenient in practice)
    - High voltage is needed (12V)

    OtherThoughts:

    Provide a suitable plug for the power socket.

    Bottomline:

    If you know what you're doing, get this cheap Infra-Red circuit.
