Rock solid – 3W 3-LED 270-Lumen Waterproof Flood Light/Projection Warm White Lamp (12V) Reviews

Pros:
VERY VERY high quality of build and materials used. Absolutely no overheating possible with this thing. On top , for a 3x1 watt it produces a LOT of light/lumen. Probably because of the lenses on top of the leds. Colour is really warm white ... should buy a decent lightmeter but i guess it's closer to 3K or less.
Cons:
Well, not really, except maybe for the price.
Other:
because of MY OWN stupidity I blow the driver by hooking it up to a 220V AC source instead of 12V DC...grrrrrr. So , no protection there...be warned. To make it worse I hooked it directly to a 220V-AC-12V-DC .... on the wrong side of it. So i also blew that power supply to heaven (LOL).
Bottomline:
Absolutely decent product, but if you need a lot of them ... it will become rather expensive. Local shops sell a likes for +30% where as strips are sold locally for at least 50 to 100% more of the DX price.
