Good price, So-so packaging – RGB Multicolored 1-Meter 30-LED 6W Light Strip (DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
Good price, nice and bright LEDs with good colour purity. Comes with connector and built-in current limiting resistors so you can hook straight to 12V.
Can be cut in to 3LED segments for smaller applications.
Cons:
Packaging could be better- Comes in a plastic baggie, and while it arrived in good shape, I can see a potential for transit damage if you have odd-shaped items in your order or if the mailman is having a bad day. Feels sturdy though, so not as fragile as you might think.
Other:
Great for low-level or small area lighting... but look at brighter options if you want to do a larger area. Sticky tape on back is a nice feature and makes mounting a bit easier.
Bottomline:
Buy it if you need RGB LEDs for cheap/experimenting.
