Solid piece of LED strip – 36-LED 612-Lumen String Light with Aluminum Alloy Shell - White Light (12V) Reviews

Pros:
Price on these is fantastic. They work well and they are built pretty good. Light output is perfect for display cases or under counter lighting. Would work as cove lighting in a room too.
Cons:
You need to have some soldering skills to make these work. The leads to and from the strips can be a bit awkward to sold especially if you break them after you install them under something.
Other:
I run 2 of these in series off of a 12 volt wall power supply. I think it is maybe 300mw or 500mw. Runs great with no heat issues. Had to solder and heat shrink them to make them reliable.
Bottomline:
Perfect for display stuff in a store. Not so great for task lighting or lighting up a room. If you want to light a room very dim than these would work. Might need 4 of them for a room that is 15 ft x 15ft. Again though only accent lighting.
