The quality of the LED strip is great. It is designed for indoor usage( not waterproof). Also, the 3M double sided tape makes it strong to put on almost any surface. Since the LED does not has any defuser, it is mainly used as backlights, under the object lighting, not for direct illumination.
It comes with 3 connecting sets, which allow the LED strip to be cut into 4 sessions. This is perfect for my 3D printer inner printer area, which brings colourful lights during printing. It would be nice if we can have the remote control protocol, which I can control it with the firmware and turn the LED strip off after printing is done.
I'm using a couple of these strips to light up some Ikea display cabinets. Lighting from the top wouldn't work due to shelving, so I'm using these strips to provide light from the front. The length of each strip is perfect for the STUVA or BESTA cabinets, and they are flat enough to fit behind the door hinges. The connections between the strips are a bit fragile so you need to be careful how you position them, but the strips work great, produce really good light, and have even kept working after a cat chewed one.
The remote works pretty well, although it misses a few presses sometimes. I'm running a couple of these strips in the same room using the one remote, and that works great. Works even better with an IR extender so you can hide the IR inputs of the two strips behind the cabinet and using the extender to make sure they both react at the same time. The DIY settings are very handy as the default white is too blue for my liking. Turning the blue and green channels down a bit has allowed me to get the colour I want.
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 bought this as it runs of usb and to add mood lighting to our room while using our 4k tv. Needless to say it works a charm. plug into the tv and stick it at the back. come with 5 strips. one for spare i assume. The remote works well. I love it.
I stick this Led strip light on stairs skirting, it light up floor all the way from downstairs to upstairs bathroom. We leave it on whole night ,so kids can see the way to bathroom in night time . The low voltage don’t use much electricity so we has less worry about bill. Very durable and useful products .
Worked well for 1 week then remote control started to malfunction, buttons are all mismatched now also the led strip is sensitive to tv remotes as my tv remote changes its colours when changing channels, this can be very annoying
Other than that the Colours are great , it can also do warm white
Ordered 2 packs of these LEDs. Nicely packaged and delivered quickly. Both packs were missing the female connectors so you could not join the 4 strips together. 2 strips would not work when joined with the corner connectors. Unacceptable that both packs were defective.
Works as described, fast shipment, made a second order. Used as a Christmas tree light outside in my porch flashing with carols. Would recommend, repeat order. Contact with seller was positive and quick to respond.
