Pros:
+ Good, bright light + White is actually white + Comes with PSU + Cheap + Waterproof
Cons:
- Options of the controller are not that good. One of the options just cycles through red green and blue at an irregular pace. Speed of it is not managable. - I have ordered 5 of these, 1 of these controllers was defective. Have yet to open it up, but looks like a bad connection on the Red line. Not that important for me as I've ordered a different controller for the bunch.
Other:
I have ordered 5x5 meters. The order was split up between one envelope with 2 and one envelope with 3 rolls. Unfortunately the latter one got picked out by customs and cost me an additional 25 euros. I had expected worse. As I'll be using these for my ceiling, I have ordered one separate controller at a local shop, because I don't yet fully trust the buildquality :-) I have also not had one of the controllers on for a prolonged period, so I cannot judge about the heat the controllers give off.
Bottomline:
Excellent price/quality rating. Controller appears to be the only weak point. You just have to hope it is not a 'monday morning' model or you're handy with a soldering iron or electronics in general.
