5 out of 5 eggsGreat effect

Pros: amazing brightness and colors, remote works from across my room unlike most light strips i have used which you would have had to have been right next to the receiver for the remote to work. did i mention this thing is BRIGHT. i definitely recommend for any dorm room or home entertainment set up.

Cons: the 'smooth' button does the same thing as the 'flash' button and the sticky strip on the back of the lights was cheap and fell off or didnt even stick at all.

Other Thoughts: well worth it for accent lighting.

4 out of 5 eggsFinal Thoughts

Pros: 1: Water proof RGB LED Strip sealed in clear Silicone.

2: Remote

3: Low Price.

4: Replacement remotes/controllers are cheap & available everywhere.

5: Strip can be cut every 3rd LED.

6: Strips can be joined together to create a super long strip, but may require a more powerful power adapter.

Cons: 1: Overpowering industrial silicone smell when opening.May require a well ventilated area when opening Silver Bag.

2: Controller & Remote feels cheap.

3: Controller not water proof.

4: Connections not water proof.

5: Short wire. Had to buy RGB extension cable.

6: Adhesive is weak & may require other means to get it to stick & stay where you put it.

7: Does not support "Chase", & the strip can only be one color at a time.

8: Manual is not informative & doesn't explain the buttons on the remote properly.

Other Thoughts: After installing these in the terrace, I had an extra piece left over. So I purchased another controller & remote, & wired the controller with a Molex plug so it could run off the power supply in the PC. Now my PC has mood lighting! I need t find a controller that can change the color depending on Load or Temp! That would be winsauce!

Other Thoughts:

Shame they don't have a more attractive wall mounted controller.

Also, when set to White, light has a slightly blueish hue to it. Not a problem.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this RGB LED strip set. For the price. It has not failed, exploded or burst into flames after 5 days of running it non stop. I plan on getting another set for under the cabinet kitchen lighting.

1 egg deducted for that overpowering chemical smell.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth the chance- poor quality control

Pros: When working, it works as advertised. Nice lighting and effects.

Cons: Bought two of these and now they both don't work. The first one worked for about 15 presses in 2 weeks time. The last light setting comes on when plugged in, but the remote doesn't do anything. The 2nd one only worked for 10 minutes and now that remote controller doesn't do anything either.

Other Thoughts: When the first one stopped working, I thought it was the remote or its battery. I unpacked the 2nd one and that remote didn't work either. But, when I switched out the receiver/controller, then it worked again (with both remotes). That is, for only 5 presses. Now that one doesn't work anymore either. Very cheaply made receiver/controller and very poor Quality Control_2 out of 2 bad :(

Pros: *LED strip itself looks to be great quality
*Very bright & colorful
*Annoys my wife

Cons: *Flimsy connectors -- typically have to tape them together to hold
*Remote barely functions -- might need a new battery

Other Thoughts: These are great for under-cabinet lighting and behind the TV.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly.

Pros: Works exactly as expected. Bright!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these as part of a Shell Shocker without reading the reviews (which may have scared me off). The two I've installed work perfectly (remotes and receivers). 3 third is destined for a project but I haven't decided which yet... ambient tv lighting, stair tread lights... something.

4 out of 5 eggsvery nice

Pros: Works well so far, the controller is an IR controller so ot has to have line of site to work, you have to hide the lights creatively to allow the remote to work but work great overall.

Cons: The adhesive back is a bit lacking, low quality for good quality lights. I have them on a bar under my glass desk and had to zip tie them the the bar.

Other Thoughts: Great for the price as a small project or hobby lights in an office or house. Definitely recommend if you just want so cheap lights to play with.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Poorly & Cheaply Constructed

Pros: Cool as hell when it actually works.

Cons: Prepare to button mash the remote & repeatedly unplug hoping to regain control of the lights. Terribly cheap remote is the only means of controlling this almost uncontrollable light strip.

Other Thoughts: I bought white LED tape lights for under cabinet lighting in my kitchen (from HD). Those lights are fantastic & probably clouded my judgement about making this purchase from an unknown manufacturer. Admittedly, I paid a lot more for those, plus I had to buy the volt converter & dimmer on top of it. My daughter was so excited for this b/c it was an Xmas present for her bedroom. I bought it over a month ago & didn't test it out til we returned from vacation. Turns out it's almost completely unresponsive to 95% of button presses on the remote. Sometimes unplugging helps, mostly it does not. I missed the return window & now I'm stuck with this very cheaply, nigh unusable product that wasted my money & disappointed my daughter.

4 out of 5 eggsLights work well w/ good support

Pros: Great ambiance lighting. I'm sure others would use the lights in many other ways but I just strung them around my computer room.

Cons: Power supply failed from the start. Lights would light on but controller/keypad only worked for a few seconds before locking into whatever setting I'd just made. Email to support was promptly answered, problem assessed, new power supply speedily received and problem solved. Love the way it works now.

Other Thoughts: Email to support was promptly answered next day and new part sent out via Priority Mail.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective controller

Pros: The LED string can be salvaged by purchase of and use with another brand's controller & remote.

Cons: As others have also found/reported the TaoTronics control box is defective; mine worked briefly for some basic functions, and then failed completely. The IR remote, though inferior to other brands with respect to features/modes, does work, at least in a limited fashion, with the controller box I have from a different brand of LEDs.

Other Thoughts: My best advice-- avoid TaoTronics products; unfortunately NewEgg has no provision to assign zero stars. .My experience with the other, similarly priced LED string brand they carry has been much better.
