Don't get me wrong, these are very good LEDs, I'm a photographer but more of an aquarist. I have very rare fish from Tanganyika, and to bring out their natural beauty you need outstanding lighting. First of all, I bought a led absolutes series about 6500K, Unfortunately it turned out that it shines in the color of 5600 (sunlight). I thought that they sent me the wrong leds, but the led says 6500k, Definitely is not a 6500k (the light of the cloudy sky) is too warm !!! The colors are rendering beautifully but incorrectly reflect blue (too violet) without the depth of that color. the manufacturer states that Ra is 98-99, which is confusing, this LED shines in the same way as the LED of the Yuji, with Ra 95. Nothing, however, compares with the Yuji led from the VTC series with Ra 98 . There the 6500k color temperature is perfectly rendered (cloudy but blue sky) with a brilliant deep blue. although this led is described as Ra98 - that's why I wanted to buy something even better. And I suggested the RA 99 from the Absolute ... series and that's why I was disappointed , I really need 6500 k to get that specific blue color of the head iof my rare Tropheus Duboisi
Ordered the set of five LED modules as a test for a product and both the color and brightness are great. These are one of only two products I could even find on the market that closely matched the spectrum of actual sunlight (and the other company both only produces lightbulbs and only responded to my emails after calling them out on Amazon).
Waveform on the other hand responded incredibly quickly and even pointed me in a better direction (to these modules) after I was looking at something else, but explaining what I was building.
All in all amazing customer service and great product, even having never really wired anything together - with their power supply and some wire and wire cutters I had these connected and lit up in maybe 15 minutes.
About to place my second order already.
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.)
