Personally I would stay away from cheap or eBay LEDs. Check out ecoxotic panorama pro modules. Good quality LEDs and reflectors and a great warranty.

I have 4 of these and IME they are not good at all. The connectors are junk, the lights change colours randomly on their own and the lights are not water resistant. They require too many jumpers and wires etc if you plan on running more than two of them.

Strange, mine have a simple plug in and work great. Maybe a newer generation.
