Works with Cree or Seoul – 3.15cm Aluminum Connection Board for 3*Cree LED Emitters (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
This works great with both Cree or Seoul LEDs. The copper pads are compatible with both! I am using it with the tri-LED optic SKU 1911 and three Seoul LED's. It aligns well with some care in LED placement. Heat transfer seems good. I am using the central hole to bolt the board to the heatsink, so almost all excess heatsink compound is squeezed out. This helps heat transfer greatly.
Cons:
I only received one board! This is supposed to be a 2-pack. I hope DX support ships me my second board soon.
Other:
The LEDs are wired in series. I wanted them individually wired, but that's no big deal. It is easy to cut the traces, then shave off some insulation to expose some copper for a connection pad.
Bottomline:
Good for all your tri-LED projects using the tri-LED optics which DX sells.
