I did do a google search but most of the sites that it pulled up were uninformative.

thanks you guys for your help

I'm thinking of using them ona laptop mod. Im gonna light up my translucent smoke keyboard

those in that ebay sale are only 30mcd. That seems pretty dimdoesnt it or are surface mounts rated differently from regular led's?

The two websites dont work I dont htink
one says it is offline and the other is just a store directory

SMT LED's are rated in the same way as normal LED's

others to try are
www.digikey.com

www.alltronics.com

and maybe a general search for electronic components sale or something

seeming as you have trouble with URL's that work here, ebay is your best bet, nice and simple and quick

Check some cell phone sites, a lot of people change the color of their lcd lighting and use smts.
