Pros:
pretty bright
I made a household bathroom bulb with this and it works well inside a white batroom diffuser. Drove it at 1A Vfw is 3.9V glue to a cpu heatsink. I just use old transformer with resistor in series to drive it.
Cons:
no cons other than it gets pretty warm. I'm using an old pentium M cpu heatsink to release the heat. It seems warm to the touch.
Other:
This is all connected in series so my circuit is pretty simple. Transformer is 16V hook up with a 0.5 ohm resister in series with this. Will see how long it last.
Bottomline:
Pretty cool for a household project. I would recommend to buy.
