Nice warm light. Good spread from standard height ceiling (7' stud). Lumens Out/Watt DC input is comparable to high intensity LED units. simple construction, no switching converters to worry about. Easily dimmable.
All LED's mounted on a single PC board which isn't held in to the aluminium shell by much, may pop out, but not a biggy, a little silicon sealant around the rim holds it in just fine.
Lamp is polarity dependant, wrong way around in socket = no go! Adding a small bridge rectifier behind the PCB will cure that if you're paranoid, plenty of room behind the board. Will overheat if you try to run on more than 12v
Good product, well worth the price, will be buying more...
