Pros:
This is a cheap and bright IR illuminator. There are a lot of LEDs packed in there. It would take a lot of time to build one by hand.
Cons:
I ordered two, and one came with a cracked lens. I don't know if it still works because I don't have a power supply here.
Other:
I wish DX sold a power supply for this too. I'll have to find one.
We are using it for infrared illumination of the internet's oldest fishcam, http://www.fishcam.com
Bottomline:
They do not package these well. That said, IR illuminators are kind of a niche product, and it's hard to find them so economical.
