Great Pixel Lights! April 5, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Bellevue, NE United States  
We actually ended up using these in a stage environment and have created for us an awesome new element! We arranged them in a grid and now have a low-res pixel wall.

Brilliant Bulb / Customer Service February 8, 2018
Reviewer: R Weiland from Silverdale, WA United States  
Very quick response, received order on time, all items checked out 100%. These bulbs are bright with excellent color! I use another vendor's controller and run them at 40% brightness and  I am able to easily run lengths of 150 pixels with out power injection with NO issues. These bulb save me time and money by avoiding power injection!
