1 out of 5 eggsExtremely Disappointed

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: None

Cons: Didn't work at all out of the box. Used my phone camera to check that the remote is firing and, sure enough, it is. Just doesn't respond to any button presses. I'm guessing the IR receiver is faulty. Was really looking forward to these too. Now I have to spend almost half the amount I originally paid to return it and hopefully get the same thing I should have gotten in the first place.

4 out of 5 eggsflexible and bright

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: Weather proofing looks sound.
Lights are bright and you can get lower brightness with DYI colors.

Cons: Doublesided tape seems sticky enough, but as I'd expect with any rolled product, the covering on the tape (that you remove when applying) is not connected in several places. I dont use the tape, so this becomes a negative.
The unit I received had the last 12 LED lacking 'red' so I had to cut them off. This was cheaper than returning it, as shipping cost was almost have the price of the unit itself!

Other Thoughts: non-weather proof units are a bit more rigid, making straight lines easier when not using the tape.

5 out of 5 eggsI love them

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: Love these lights, I have had them for a couple years, and am surprised to just now see them on newegg. My father took an overseas assignment so I picked up six strands of these while visiting in China (I only payed 5-6 USD per strand so I figured I had nothing to lose, amazing what happens when you cut out the overseas importation and middlemen) but honestly if I needed one multipurpose LED strand I would probably shell out the 26 bucks to pick these up again. (current sale price) I have a glass desk in my room and these illuminate the bottom of it leaving an amazing effect when the lights are off and I'm gaming. I also used two strands to illuminate my little sisters homecoming float. The coolest thing about these strands is that you can mix the colors and have them strobe at different speeds making for a large variety of very cool effects.

The strand is modular so if you wish to make it shorter and know enough about electronics to know where to cut, you can snip the strand and have it still function properly.

Cons: Don't bother trying to use the sticky tape on the back, it was absolute trash so I used hot glue or double sided foam tape from the craft shop depending on which project i was doing.

Do not try to bend the strand sharply, make all turns gradual and if you must make a right angle you should make a small loop to be able to make the turn.

Other Thoughts: I actually converted a few of the strands I acquired to use a 9 volt battery, which ran strong for a full day and did not drain the battery. It was very simple to do, I just opened up the white receiver for the controller and soldered on a 9v battery holder where the power was attached to the board. It has the leads printed as +/- on the board so its very simple.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a great product

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: Amazing amount of light, and in just about every color imaginable. Have had no trouble with them and now they are up for Christmas, fun to change the colors. This 16 foot string lights up the whole front of my house. They are dimmable too. They can flash, fade, while they cycle through all the colors.

Cons: they cannot turn a sharp angle, so all your bends have to be gradual arcs.

2 out of 5 eggsDied within 30 days.

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: A ton of ways to customize the color. The 5 meter strip was only using 6.5 watts at the color and brightness settings that I wanted.

Cons: I used these lights four times and on the fifth use they will do nothing. Installation was messy with the sticky tape and time consuming; especially now that I have to take them down after such a short time of use. I hope the RMA process is quick.

Other Thoughts: Poor quality "flimsy" remote.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: 1. Pretty!
2. Lots of settings
3. Pleasing colors

Cons: 1. The sticky backside is worthless
2. I have mine stuck on using super glue and adhesive Velcro
3. The cut sections need to be wider. If you're not extremely careful when cutting the strips you'll damage the connectors and break all or some of the color channels.

Other Thoughts: You'll almost certainly want to buy some of the other products from HitLights that actually make these usable. For example, I bought some of the connects that allow you to cut the strips up and then reconnect them so you can have them at right angles. I'm not sure why they didn't just include a few in with these and put the price up 5 dollars.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: Bright.
Cheap
Color changing feature is cool.
They still work after being outside for a month (LED strip only, we take the box and power supply inside every time)
Power supply and controller powers 10 meters of lights with no problem.

Cons: Remote functions are hit or miss, still haven't managed to get custom color cycles to work.
Connectors are essentially useless, we soldered everything together.

Other Thoughts: Buy the lights, skip the controller and use an arduino or raspberry pi instead.

1 out of 5 eggsRemote DOA

This review is from: HitLights Weatherproof RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Rol, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot, IP65

Pros: LEDs lit up with a cool red.

Cons: The remote doesn't work which means I can't control any of the colors. Just solid red. I have to also unplug it when i want to turn them off because of the DOA remote. $#@% it.

Other Thoughts: It sucks when you shell out $35+ for something expecting to work and it doesn't.
