Radio Shack Leds Are Crap
Posted 03 January 2004 - 07:42 AM
We never sodered before but it turned out very easy and I just want to thanks to Ben999
for his awesome tut.. the packages said ultra intensive or something to the effect of being extra bright. Well we do the yellow leds first in my friends box and they look ORANGE!! and isn't very bright.. So then we do my box and the red is DIM.. Dimmer then the "yellow" leds.
I'm disappointed but yet happy because we both learned something and we've joined the elite group of xbox modders. yes everyone and there grandama her have there xbox jewl lit but it's a start.. Do you recommend anything else to make it much brighter? we'd both prefeer not to use BLUE or GREEN!! preferd yellow and Red. Thanks and I hope to start doing a design and stuff on top of my xbox.

5mm Blue 2600 mcd LED's. They are great for the eject button....but I just finished putting them in behind my jewel and i'm pretty disappointed. I only put 6 in though so I might buy a couple more and stick 'em in there. Maybe I used too strong of a resistor.

so the moral of this rant is: STAY AWAY FROM RADIO SHACK!
