New solution for failing ITC lights

Just wanted to let everybody know that there is now an alternative to paying $20+ to replace your dead or dieing ITC lights. It's from M4 LED, here
http://www.m4products.com/search.php?search_query=%22retrofit-12-5630%22&x=0&y=0
I recently replaced one of mine, and the light is so much better, that I think I will replace all of them, even the ones that haven't failed.
I have no affinity with this company, just wanted people to know there is now an alternative.
In the picture, the new M4 product is on the left

We replaced all of our 12v lights in our old ACE with M4 led lights. I'll definitely use them if the lights in my 16 DS ever fail.

Did you try getting replacements from ITC first. Word is that ITC has been very good at providing no cost replacements. Their current LED circuit board is much different than the originals that had a high failure rate.

The light on the left is the M4 light, it is bright, but the camera makes it glare.
After Newmar wouldn't help me out I decided to look for an alternative, and decided that since the originals are China made, I wouldn't waste my time with that manufacturer. Anyway, I couldn't see them shipping me 40 or so replacements for free, as basically every light I have, other than the ones in the bedroom, has either failed completely, or is on it's way out having started to dim

I believe the question Canuk 53 is asking is your light "Natural White of "Warm White"

Sorry gents, I misunderstood. It's the natural white, and compares favorably with the ITC lights that haven't failed (yet)
