Bright, daylight colour temperature, halogen replacement. Fills my desk with a nice light that is easy on the eyes. Bought this to replace a similar LED panel that had 9 larger SMD LEDs and consumed 2W. The previous one had 6 of the 9 SMD LEDs burn out in less than a week.
Also, suprisingly cheap. I the LEDs start failing, it wouldn't be a catastrophe.
Too bad there is a marked +/- side: some diodes to avoid switching wires, or even allowing AC 12V, would be far better.
Removing "energy vampires" in the office and house has become a bit of an obsession to me. You need to combine this LED panel with a *switching* power supply as a replacement for that 24h/day 2W consuming wall wart, or your energy savings will be rather pointless.
Happy with the purchase and the price. Just hope the SMD LEDs don't start failing one after the other. Time will tell, but you can't fault it at this price.
