Hey everyone. Im about to purchase some LED's for my xbox but I am concerned about one thing, the brightness of the LED's. Its obvious that the higher the MCD the brighter the LED. I just dont wanna mess up my xbox by putting LEDs that are too bright in it. They are going to be used in the controller ports. I was planning on putting two led's per port (3mm) and possibly some in the grills of my xbox. I have seen places like Hong Kong that has 2000MCD lights and HiTech which has 6000MCD lights. Which would be better for the ports, anyone have any pics of different MCD ratings in their boxes?

generally I use 5000 mcd, I only have one in each of my controller ports, and that is plenty sufficient

I also use 5000mcd on my Xboxes. 2000 is too low, you'll be like Rick James: "Darkness is spreadin'!"

"I didn't know how high he was until I heard... CHARLIE MURPHEY!"
