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

Pros:
--> Price. I looked for some IR reflectors at a local store with security equipment and similar devices are there like 10 and more times more expensive! -->Very bright - it can easily light up entire room even with my hand semi-covered. -->Good build quality - the glass is really glass (at least it looks like) - so it won't degrade over time -->Standard power connector and standard voltage (12V) -->Works only when it is dark - it has photosensor.
Cons:
--> I'm bit worried about lifetime, only time will tell... -->Gets little warm during use but no problem.
Other:
It has photocell - it works only at dark - this is why you may think it is faluty when you unbox it and test in lighted room.
Bottomline:
Good powerful IR light. Recommended! You have to have camera WITHOUT IR filter!!!! Otherwise you see only that is it on but you can't light up even a objects 50cm away!
