At first I was skeptical about buying the LED lights. I wanted a small light that could easily mount above the center console in my RAM Tradesman. It was difficult to see the cupholder or anything in the console at night. I didn't want anything super bright or as dim as a match stick, either. It's a little brighter than I wanted, but it is not so bright that it reflects off of the windshield. It definitely makes it easy to see a pack of gum or mints at night. I ordered a second one to mount in the back of the van to make it easier to find things in the back. I haven't installed it yet, but I will edit my post when I do.
