It is a good LED, whitout having a proper datasheet from the manufacturer (!) and I burned few colours by mistake. Finally, I made some measurements of the resistors to limit the current to usual values 5/10/20[mA] applying usual voltages 5-12[V]. Brightness is pretty big even for 5[mA] current. The attached diagram can help to find the nearest normalized values for the resistors to each colour.

Excellent brightness - great for indicators bordering on dark room illumination. Found the green to be brightest according to my eye sensitivity, then the blue.
However on activating the white, all three colours, I needed to supply the red through a 23 (then 19) ohm resistor.
Noticed the Description gives power output at 3W. I have pasted MY PRE-BURNOUT notes, I do not have variable equipment so they are a rough guide. Can't imagine the diode working with 6 times more continuous power. The current has gone from 38mA to 39.9mA in the last 2 hours.

With 4 LEDs in series across a 11.89V supply Voltage across Blue, Green, Red and White LEDs are 3.48V, 3.58V, 2.11V and 2.72V across the White LED set (including the 19 ohm resistor in series with the Red LED). 38mA flowing through the lot. So the Green LED is 94.2 ohm, etc. The set of LEDs seem to take an overall power of 0.45 Watts

After not understanding why my circuit did not work, and as I had bought 50 pieces, I thought: "What the hell! I'll just burn these 6" and switched the polarity. And the circuit started working.

I quadrupled checked the circuit and so far all 16 LED's I tested /used were common anode and not common cathode.

They work as expected. Was not expecting a super bright, room lighting thing, but they seem to behave well.

Secondly, they are diffused (not clear-headed), which, for me, turned out better.

I rated 5 stars because for the price you get neat 50 LEDs.

Very bright. Common negative pin, and R, G, B positives. Red is fainter than blue and green, so I use smaller resistor to get higher current.
Great for arduino and especially PWM.

These work well with reasonable brightness for the price. Unlike the experience of some reviewers, all 50 of mine were common cathode. I was hoping some might be common anode so that I had a selection to play with, but I can't downgrade a review for the product being exactly what was advertised.

Met my requirements admirably. Nice and bright, but to match the light levels I had to increase the current through the green led by more than 3 times to 10 mA whereas the red LED only needed 3mA

Excellent LEDs. Very bright - (inevitably?) all three colours aren't the same brightness to the human eye.
My only concern is that I wonder how much current they draw since I'm planning on using them with my Raspberry Pi. Hardly the manufacturer's problem :)

personal feedback on these until recently I found the 5mm leds not a patch on readily available 3mm but when I tested these I was sold and bought a 100 to keep and the packaging was superb they took care to see they reached the buyer intact

Do what they're supposed to do, 49 out the 50 worked as they should have done one did not work on blue.
