I bought both 5000K and 6500K modules to try out. These modules are very bright at the maximum and can run very hot at the highest brightness. Consider sufficient cooling to these babies.
The color quality is excellent!
Beautiful depth of color detail on these lights.
The color quality in these absolute series are phenomenal
just arrived, connect to adapter and tried as camera lighting, take photo using iphone. no diffuser, no setup, no edit. ...love the amazing smooth shadow...will buy again 1 or 2 more.
I purchased a 5-pack of these (5000K) to construct a lighting "array" for my daughter's oil painting station, along with the FilmGrade DC supply, flicker-free dimmer, and assorted connectors, etc. for assembly. I was a little apprehensive when I discovered the 5 modules were still connected together along the edge. So I emailed support and Josh replied within a day or two with excellent instructions and advice how to separate the modules without damaging the emitters or WAGO connectors. Using his instructions I was able to separate the modules, and then proceed to mount the lights, connect them, and had a working system on the first try. Four modules provide more than enough light for her work surface. So much so that she typically needs to turn them down a bit. And the color rendition is fantastic. Definitely 5 stars for the product and the customer support.
Bright, color correct, and easy to assemble with one very important caution: the WAGO connectors are a little flimsy and very easy to dislodge. Use the tool, and make sure you only exert pressure DIRECTLY DOWNWARD when opening the little grabber clips to connect the strips. The connectors are very easy to break off if you exert any sideways force at all. Also, they are not all properly mounted: you may wish to squeeze them gently onto the board (place the strip on a hard surface and push straight down with a finger) to properly seat. You will sometimes hear a click, indicating that your intervention was needed and successful. Five stars for the LEDs, three stars for the connectors. (Hence my four star rating.)
I installed five of these as lighting for photography work, I checked the spectral output on a spectrum analyzer and saw pretty much exactly what was advertised. The connectors are a little strange, I personally would have preferred solder pads. But I am sure many would not. These are by far the best LEDs I have seen to date.
The true sun-like color spectrum is fantastic. Would love to also see these available in differently shaped arrangements in addition to the strip modules so that they could work in a variety of situations and lamp housings
