Bright and white - good value – 12V LED Strip (30-LED 50cm White) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Sturdy construction which feels quite good quality.
Cons:
Not very flexible so this would be ideally used as a straight strip potentially to replace fluroescent tubes. I ordered two strips and one of the strips was faulty with 3 leds that weren't working. I notified DX but they were quick to respond and were happy to replace it.
Not ideal for automotive use out of the box. Would need to add a resistor or a zener diode in series with the strip to avoid blowing up the leds.
Other:
Would be fantastic if DX supplied this with a resistor/diode wired up in series so we can use it on cars/trucks, etc. Just another hassle to obtain the correct resistor or diode.
Bottomline:
These strips look quite nice and put out decent lighting. Would be great for caravans or interior lighting for cars.
