Pros:
Cheapest RGB led strip I could find. Build quality is good. Flexible silicone tubing covers the strip and has (propably) water proof caps in both ends. Easy to cut to length. Has a cutting point every 10cm. Easy to solder back together or to a wire. Has markings every 50cm that what line is what (+12, R, G, B) If you have multiple controllers they can be controlled by same remote at once. This can be a pro or a con.
Cons:
Some colors are too close to each other, especially differend shades of yellow/orange. White is a little pinkish. I would have liked to have a controller that has freely adjustable colors instead of 15 fixed ones (+white) If you have multiple controllers they can be controlled by same remote at once. This can be a pro or a con.
Other:
I haven't measured the current this draws but 12V 2A power supply that I had seems to be enough for the whole 5 meters even in white mode.
Bottomline:
Great product. I'm definately going to order more of these.
