bright and small – High Power 16W 950LM LED Emitter Metal Strip (12~14V) Reviews

Pros:
Its a nice strip, *really* bright. Definitely more power than a 50W Halogen bulb in direct comparison, also brighter than a SSC P7. 950lm sounds legit. I think 3-4 should be enough to light 12m^2 room. Build quality seems good, the LEDs are sealed in the solid aluminum housing. on each side are big pads.
Cons:
The price... For 12$/piece it would instantly buy 10 of them. It was slightly bended when it arrived. Not a big problem since it is aluminum, but Im not sure how well the inner parts handle this.
Other:
The heat dissipation is a lot lower than I expected, however, you should mount it at least on some kind of metal plate.
Bottomline:
Nice high power led strip, the big advantage compared to single high power LEDs like the P7 is the lot easier cooling.
