LED 5630 (30 Lumens) is brighter than the 5050 (16 Lumens).

Somehow just me, never like windows LED wrap around. look outstanding to impact people eye, may be one line on the top, may be more than enough. Again just me only. So do whatever you think it the best for your business.

Listen to the Godfather. And save $$$$$$$$


its a fad. In the dfw as soon as it came out all the mom n pop got into the craze. Over doing it all over the windows.

Its like you at a carnival.

Soon the leds fail. Then again you have extra work and cost to replace individual pieces.

Most bang for your buck. Install additional lighting in the front back and side of your mat and inside front entrance.

I agree with both Phu & Godfather,

i too find find those window LEDs, while they attract attention, are kind of annoying to look at.
At least to me.

Whats more, the lights framing your windows make it harder to see inside the store by sheer contrast.

Like Godfather says, there are better ways to brighten your mat. Just my opinion.

It's annoying driving by the local Metro PCS store on the corner as the white LED's are so bright and distracting.

In a mat, I can picture kids trying to tear them off the window.  They tear up everything.
