Good LED, needs resistor! – 10.5mm LED Emitter (10-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
VERY good price, especially if you're buying bulk, bright LED.
Cons:
These do need a resistor at 4.5 volts. The last bunch of white LED's I bought (from a different vendor) didn't require any resistance at that voltage. Well, I plugged one of these into the device I have my other LED's rigged up to, and promptly burnt it out. No worries, though. There are plenty more where that came from.
Other:
It would be nice to have DX supply packs of cheapie resistors to go along with these.
Bottomline:
I love toying with LEDs, and this is the best price I've ever found these at.
