Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Extremely bright. Fairly soft light because there are no lenses over each individual LED element. Comes with adhesive, and "universal" adapters.
Cons:
Connectors are somewhat flimsy. Solder points look low quality. Wire is somewhat fragile. Festoon adapter barely fits in my car (slightly short).
Other:
Testing this on a bench, I put 14V into it (typical max seen in a car) and it pulled 258mA. This puts it at around 3.5W at 14V. The panel is easily 3-4x brighter than the stock bulb in my Honda Civic.
Bottomline:
This is a very bright, universal LED panel that can be used in many different applications.
