Pros:
Brilliant white light. Not as powerful as a lightbulb by any means, but anyone buying this product should expect that. Easy to distinguish between positive and negative legs, so no problems there. Packaged in red bubble wrap bag; I still use the bag as a holder, the leads have yet to puncture it or break. Legs can withstand some bending, but I would avoid trying to shape them multiple times.
Cons:
Absolutely none.
Other:
Longer leg is "positive" (anode)
Shorter leg is "negative" (cathode)
Bottomline:
Buy this. This set of 25 costs as much as 1 led from local electronics retailers. This is an exceptional deal.
