  • Very good, but not exactly RGB LEDs

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    It does it's job well
    The remote works from quite a long range

    Cons:

    Not true RGB LEDs - I was hoping for a strip containing RGB LEDs. This strip uses separate red, green and blue LEDs to create colors, so it can't properly mix them if there's a surface close to the strip - you will see separate colors

    OtherThoughts:

    Should be written in the description, that it uses separate red, green and blue LEDs, not RGB LEDs.
    At 18W/5m these aren't very bright and won't be much of a use to light up a whole room.

    Bottomline:

    If this strip will be visible from short distances (less than ~5 meters), then you might want to think about using a true RGB LED strip. If it's going to be hidden behind an edge somewhere, then you might get away seeing mixed colors, not red, green and blue dots.
