  • Bright lights, nice effects, fixable remote

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    300 bright LEDs on tape strip with 3M self-adhesive. Flash effects are superior to other similar products in that you get a "moving" sequence option in addition to the fade and strobe effects. My DVD remote, old VCR remote, and current cable box remotes also control the light effects.

    Cons:

    The wiring on the light strip and in the driver is mismatched twice on the tape strip and once within the driver itself, causing the remote buttons to mix the color buttons (simple fix with some quick soldering).

    OtherThoughts:

    The item comes without an AC/DC adapter. If you're somewhat of an electronics rat pack geek like me, then you should already have some old adapter in your arsenal. I had 18 in my collection with different outputs for volts & amperes. I found one with 12Vdc and 1.2 Amps was the best to use. It lit the lights as brightly as they could get without heating them up too much.

    Bottomline:

    Once you fix the wiring in the remote and tape strip, all buttons work perfectly and as they are noted. The dancing flash effects and closely positioned LEDs make this a better deal than other similar items on DX. I'm very satisfied with the product considering its cost.
