I purchased these intending to use the “white” light setting for makeup application as I have odd lighting at home and needed decent strength from LED’s. Setting it up and connecting it all was so frustrating that I lost my cool multiple times as once connected, it lies where you leave it and nothing clicks or holds in place so make sure that once you have it where you want it, you NEVER EVER touch it or the whole thing will disconnect. Unfortunately, the “white” option is more of a blue/green and is useless for what I purchased it for. I also can’t move them to any other spot now because there is no extra adhesive so I have to leave them as is. Regardless, all the other colours and functions work perfectly but I specifically only needed the white light setting and I didn’t get anything remotely close. Great purchase if you don’t have the intended use I did!
While this is listed as a TV backlight, we bought it to stick behind our 4 yr old daughters headboard, as mood lighting/night light. Comes with three corner connectors, so can be set up easily. Adhesive is strong and applies well. It's USB powered, and is controlled with a remote control. Colours can be changed easily and can be set up as solid or gradual/sharp colour change, and the lights can be constant or set to flashing for that disco effect! She loves it, as do we, we'll be back for more!
For the price, this really is an excellent product. It does exactly what it says, although there are a couple of downsides to be aware of - however, I don't think they are deal breakers in any way and likely are going to be the same issues that similar products at this price point have.
The adhesive is quite weak, so you will need to reinforce it or add some more. The remote works fine but the light strip seems quite sensitive to other IR commands from other remotes - certain buttons on my TV remote seem to mirror the commands from the light strip remote for certain colours. To solve this, I simply hid the IR receiver behind the TV for the light strip, as I want just one standard colour to provide some backlight to the TV room.
I was planning for a while and finally bought these lights to put some mood lighting around our 64" TV in the living room. The whole family is totally in love with the lights, and especially with so many dimmer settings we can adjust and to make it different colours. We can even combine and customise any colour combination. The lights were easy to set up - just to secure it on very strong adhesive which I'm absolutely positive about. The USB power is a great feature, as we have 3 spare outputs. So now when we turn the TV on the lights automatically lights up! The amazing quality of lights and the remote control including all the features. Definitely worth it for this price. I might buy one more for TV in my kid's room.
There is a 56 inches LED in my drawing room. I pasted this strip at the back of TV and it sticks their nicely with its powerful adhesive tape. It has very bright light when I set brightness to maximum. The colors are also very sharp that I change time to time by its 44 keys remote. I connected its power wire to my TV’s USB port. This backlight creates a good environment when I turned off all room lights for watching TV.
