    Pros: Easy to install and use. 100% reflective due to its optical properties. Cons: 5 pack will make some scratches on the smooth surface. Cracks if you use powerful LEDs due to heat. 5W LED maximum. Other thoughts: Not sure if this review goes through as I have already reviewed it last time I I... Read more

    Pros: Cheap, highly reflective, easy to use, easy to mount. Cons: Came scratchy in 5 pack bags without protection. High power LED's will cause the optics to crack due to heat. So don't put more than 5W LED in them. I used 10W LED that resulted in cracked optics. Other thoughts: Adding a small in... Read more

    More than 99% of the light that comes in , comes out. The throw can be influenced and even can be made very narrow, like a good reflector does, but without the same spill, so more energy can be put in the throw.

    Individually packed so they arrived unscratched. They fit on CREE perfectly. The beam is very tight, the spot of maximum brightness is about 8 degrees from the main axis then there is some dimming out to some 12 degrees and thereafter rapid dimming. There is not much spill beam at all. Efficiency... Read more

    This is an good, low cost plastic TIR optic. The counterbored hole allows for the Cree's metal rim to align perfectly with the optic. Unlike the previous reviewer, none of my optics arrived scratched. DX packed each one individually in a small ziplock bag, then rebagged all five in a larger bag,... Read more

    Shallow, space-saving Large diameter with wide lip that can be trimmed Cavity too deep for many types of LEDs All 5 optics were scratched because they were packed without padding in a small zip lock bag Large flat bottom that is only good for revealing the type of LED installed Sides at wrong not...
