    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    + High quality RGB LEDs with high output.
    + Small controller with 12V standard jack power connector.
    + Transformer (110~240V / EU plug)
    + Waterproof SMD LEDs
    +Cuttable every 3 LEDs about 6cm per segment.
    + Remote with 10 brightness levels (white) and effects
    + On/Off via remote.
    + Remembers last state over power loss.

    Cons:

    Controller overheats.

    OtherThoughts:

    The previously ordered Colorful Light Flexible Strip (SKU 41522) came with much better controller which didn't shut itself down after 30-45 minutes due to overheating of the driver transistors. I opened it up and replaced the driver transistors with TIP120 med-power darlingtons with small heat sinks and it's been fine since.

    Bottomline:

    The controller is really just a bonus considering the great price on these LEDs. And with a little effort it can be made to work properly.
