    Pros:
    I Love this LED! It's really bright! All my friends like "-Wow, did you just pay 7.95$ for that!?" It lights up my whole basement without any lenses.. I have it in my DIY bike light.. (thats made out of plastic) and it works just fine! Now I'm po...
    Cons:
    No cons, but if you use the recommended voltage and amps it will get a bit hot! Even if you hold your hand in front of it you c...

    Killer light

    posted by Creulsomegeorge on 06/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a killer LED, it produces according to the data sheet a powerful 910 lumen at 3.0A. The 975 is according to the best product series. But none the less this one comes close.
    Cons:
    There aren't any cons, just the possible difficulty of cooling them, 10W of raw power.

    Awesome Light

    posted by nevik on 08/19/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I have bought this LED light before so it was a no brainer to buy it again. Very very bright and white - I drive it at the rated 3A and fit it into a special machined mount that I made for it. See below for further info.
    Cons:
    Puts out a lot of heat but this can be handled OK if you have sufficient metal to draw the heat away and dissipate it. Even so ...

    Bright!!

    posted by Ruki319 on 08/15/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Really Bright. May be same or more than P7 c bin LED. Ues 3.3V / 3A driver. That will give you a good life span for this LED. The colour temperature about 6000 - 7000k it is very white. When drive Max. You see a hint of blue.
    Cons:
    This cree LED is not really reliable as I thought. If you order this for your project, get 1 or 2 extra. Becouse the LED is ver...

    When in doubt, choose Cree.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is probably the best led currently in the world considering the cost and wattage. It's insanely bright. I use two of these with a Husqvarna Rider as headlamps and the light output is absolutely amazing. The solder pads are great, the star is provid...
    Cons:
    No cons really, just make sure these arent TOO bright for your application ;)

    XMLAWT 1000-Lumen LED Emitter White Light Bulb

    posted by manutxy on 04/05/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is the fourth LED I have bought. It is very easily assembled and has excellent light output. I changed the original bulb on a scuba flash light for this LED emitter and the difference in the light output was amazing!
    Cons:
    I don't like the colour temperature because the inner rim of the light has quite a lot of green. As a result, under sea water y...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It has all been said before and it is true. These are just the best. I have made a variety of lights for caving and kayaking and they put out so much light it is great. I have reordered several time as I come up with more uses for them
    Cons:
    The colour temperature. Meaning they are very white. Some people don't like this especially if you want to use it as a house l...

    Excellent LED

    posted by Andrej86 on 01/01/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    What can I say. One of the best LEDs in the world if not the best. The chip itself is very small an has excellent light output. The color temperature is nice too. I'm driving it with around 2.2 amps to be more reliable but it still outputs plenty of light a...
    Cons:
    No cons!
