    Color & Brightness

    Sadly, Logisys Red CCFL is not truly a Red CCFL, it is an orange CCFL. Yet, the brightness of the CCFL is remarkable. After comparing this to a similar red CCFL, the Logisys CCFL was vastly brighter.

    Conclusion

    Logisys Red CCFL is a remarkably bright CCFL, yet, it is not truly red. If you are not concerned by the off-color and you are looking for a cheap way to brighten up your case, this is surely the CCFL to buy.
