Great! – Flexible 2-Mode Blue Light EL Strip (DC 12V/3M-Length) Reviews

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

Pros:
SUPER bright! I have this running along the corners of my wall and ceiling in my TV room and it throws a LOT of blue light. Perfect night light, very inexpensive for the length you get. Easy to run with any old 12V AC adapter.
Cons:
The converter is quite noisy. I've got mine tucked away in a corner inside a plastic vented box, which cuts down on a lot of the noise, but if you're close by you can still hear the buzzing. Not sure how that translates to longevity.
Other:
Use an AC adapter (like SKU 15989) and adapter plugs (like SKU 44060) to make things easier, since these come with loose wires as they're designed for car use.
Bottomline:
An excellent product. Everyone loves how I've TRON'd up the room. It looks amazing and it only cost ~$45. I might get more to run vertically, but I think that'd look too much like a holodeck...
