Be careful when looking at the "mcd" (millicandella) number - many of these are greatly inflated because no consumer really knows what they're getting. They know "dim," "bright," and "really bright" but that's about it. I've found the only you really know is to compare two LEDs side-by-side. I've done this with LEDs "rated" at 5000 and 10,000 mcd, and yes, the 10,000 mcd is brighter, but *just barely*. Buyer beware!

Also, $2.00 is way overpriced for a high-brightness LED. You can get about the same thing for $.60
