    Excellent

    posted by boootymac on 01/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this 75 LED light strip to illuminate the trunk of my Mk4 GTI. Installation is simple as the polarity of the wires are indicated on the light strip. The light output is very bright and the angle is wide enough to light up my entire trunk. The light...
    Cons:
    The soldering is inconsistent; 3 LEDs (in a consecutive row) on my light strip have contact issues. Sometimes they won't illumi...

    Great LEDs for the price

    posted by boootymac on 10/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These LEDs are excellent! They look very well built and they are also very bright. The have no polarity so they can work in any direction. I'm using them in my glovebox and hatch with great success. They're brighter than the incandescent bulbs they replaced.
    Cons:
    None so far. Only time will tell how long these LEDs will last.

    Great LEDs

    posted by boootymac on 10/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These 39mm fuse-style LEDs are very bright. They're much brighter than their halogen counterparts. They emit a crisp white light with no hint of tacky blue. Much better built than 18737 but only time will tell how long these will last.
    Cons:
    As with other similar LEDs, these have polarity and can be troublesome when installing.

    Very bright LEDs depending on your application

    posted by boootymac on 08/14/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These LEDs are very bright. I'm using them as the dome and map lights on my VW GTI and they illuminate the interior extremely well. Contrary to what another reviewer said, they're a nice cool white that isn't offending or obnoxious.
    Cons:
    They can be quite finicky to install. The polarity is one thing, but getting proper contact with the terminals required some tr...

    Amazing for the price and quantity

    posted by boootymac on 08/14/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price and quantity is the biggest benefit. A single batter retails locally for twice the price. They were well packaged also
    Cons:
    The batteries I received were not the same as the one pictured on DX. My batteries did not have any labels on them

    Excellent battery for the price

    posted by boootymac on 08/14/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These batteries are nearly identical to the equivalent batteries available locally. One big difference is the price. A single battery retails locally for nearly twice the price of the five batteries that DX sells. The packaging looks legit and I'm not hesit...
    Cons:
    None that I am aware of right now.

    Excellent for the HTPC!

    posted by boootymac on 08/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This mini-keyboard is a great replacement for the keyboard and mouse I had for my HTPC. The trackball is amazingly easy to use and typing on the keyboard is similar to texting on a phone.
    Cons:
    Reception was a bit sketch when I had the receiver plugged into the back of my HTPC. On/off switch can be a hassle after a whil...

    Bight LEDs that might flicker.

    posted by boootymac on 08/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These LEDs are very bright. In fact, they are significantly brighter than SKU 05554, which have 9 LEDs. They look great when used in the interior or as license plate lights.
    Cons:
    Some bulbs tend to flicker. I noticed that 1 out of the 4 bulbs I purchased would flicker sporadically, while the other 3 were ...

    9-LED LED Festoon Bulb

    posted by boootymac on 08/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These LEDs are decently bright and the build quality is acceptable. No flickering or any signs that suggest a faulty bulb so far.
    Cons:
    The temperature rating of the light is a nice cool white, but doesn't quite match other LEDs from DX (SKU 05789).

    Spotlights

    posted by boootymac on 08/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These LEDs are cheap and they serve their purpose. Read below to see if they fit your application though!
    Cons:
    The light is focused forwards, making these LEDs function as "spotlights." I also had to bend the terminals for them to make co...
