Pauly, yours are CCFL. They don't look like the Orion V2 Opaque.

So one of the reasons I've been hesitant to pull the trigger on these angel eyes is whenever I see them in person I am bothered when you can see all the individual LEDs up close. Will the opaque get rid of this slightly? Make the ring look more uniform?

Without a doubt. I loved my opaques. I got the Orion Lites and even those were bright enough

Its not necessarily brightness that I am worried about. I just don't really like when you can see all the individual leds up close.

I know. The opaque option will get rid if that. I'm just saying I'd recommend the Orion lites. For the money you pay the brightness is incredible

Just get the Orion V2 in 4300k like mine. The individual LEDs are only really
noticeable in pics you see, because of the flash, in person they're not that
noticeable.
