  • Good replacement for desk lamp

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Bright, daylight colour temperature, halogen replacement. Fills my desk with a nice light that is easy on the eyes. Bought this to replace a similar LED panel that had 9 larger SMD LEDs and consumed 2W. The previous one had 6 of the 9 SMD LEDs burn out in less than a week.
    Also, suprisingly cheap. I the LEDs start failing, it wouldn't be a catastrophe.

    Cons:

    Too bad there is a marked +/- side: some diodes to avoid switching wires, or even allowing AC 12V, would be far better.

    OtherThoughts:

    Removing "energy vampires" in the office and house has become a bit of an obsession to me. You need to combine this LED panel with a *switching* power supply as a replacement for that 24h/day 2W consuming wall wart, or your energy savings will be rather pointless.

    Bottomline:

    Happy with the purchase and the price. Just hope the SMD LEDs don't start failing one after the other. Time will tell, but you can't fault it at this price.
