Not familiar with the brand, or if I even saw one. Generic-style LED though. Needs to be mounted to a heatsink and the specs are generally well-exaggerated.
I'd love to see your ideas/build though.

Not familiar with that brand or vendor but that looks like it's a much better led. Grab a meanwell driver and you'll be set. Also check out Rapidled.com for more stuff. Lots of LEDers seem to source their stuff from there.

The cart will only show on your computer.
