Once set up it works well, The set up can be a bit annoying as the cords need to be in an exact direction and when its behind a desk its quite hard to see the small arrow, the cords pull out easily too so that was an issue I came across in the setup. BUT once its all in place it does work well and do the job. It has most colours but is missing a nice purple, red, blue and green are the best IMO. I would buy again.
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!
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.
The light set itself is pretty good. Easy to install and get a great looking in your room. I had some problems with the remote not working sometimes. Also, sometimes, after going through a few modes, I could not change the setting (using the remote) until unplugging the lights for a while and turning then on again. Since I am not intending to change the colors that often, it is still usable, but keep this in mind.
It is very nice and vibrant! It is very easy to set up as well. My friends visited me recently in the house and saw the lights following the beat of the music. It just gets hot which I am not sure if it is something to worry about but overall, I am loving my beautiful led lights!!
I purchased this for my 65" TV to make sure I had enough lights to cover the whole border. Lights all work fine, great when watching TV Tape holding strong The music settings are just a chaos of flashing lights so don't expect any noticeable difference between songs Personally i'd stick to the fade settings for music and solid colour when watching TV Hope this helps
