  • Very bright, nice color, easy to drive

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

    Pros:

    Very Bright. Hurts your eyes if you look closely. I cannot measure if it's actually 200 lumen, but it must be very close to it.
    Color is very nice. Appears to have the same tone of warm CFL's.
    Doesn't need special drivers. Just plug on any 12V power supply and you're good to go.

    Cons:

    Gets HOT. Without additional heat sink, heats up to 67°C in 30 minutes @12V
    There's no datasheet or instructions for reliable operation.

    OtherThoughts:

    I would like to know how hot it can operate without damaging itself.

    Bottomline:

    If you plan building a desklamp, this LED strip is an excellent choice.
