4 out of 5 eggsThe Perfect Color MOD

Pros: It's an unlimited RGB color combination.
No need for cathode light bars or neon light bars, etc.
This one does it all.
Very bright.
Five brightness settings.
Cool Fade effect.

Cons: Only con which I took off one egg for was the adhesive.
The adhesive SUCKS!
I tried to put this on the CM Storm Stryker but it would not stick in all places.
It held itself up somehow, but some places it came loose.
I even followed instructions to clean surface with alcohol and then put it on. Still it came off.

Other Thoughts: Besides the adhesive issue, probably the only case color mod you'll need.
I'd still buy it again no doubt.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty but heavy on the blues

Pros: Nice features (color changing fade, color changing flashing, custom color fading (breathing), custom color flashing (strobe), and custom color display (a solid light); you can adjust the brightness of the LEDs and the speed of any special effect), the control panel looks like a quality piece on my tower, it covers the full spectrum of colors when picking a custom color, the black strip of LEDs blends into cases with black interiors well, fits all the way around the inside of my case (Corsair 760t).

Cons: Adhesive on the back of the strip is ok but not great. They stick fine to the walls and floor of my case, but the part of the strip that was adhered to the top of the case keeps falling down. I will need to figure out a different way to attach them there.

When set to "color changing fade", the light strip is very heavy on the blues. While you can change the speed that the fade takes, the ratio of time spent in each color is always skewed. Around the mid-range of speed, it takes about 23 seconds for the strip to cycle through the rainbow, and about 10 of those seconds are spent on blue, with green and purple being the next longest (they about equal to one another). The amount of time spent on red, orange, and yellow TOTAL is extremely brief with literally three seconds of fade time to cycle through all three of those colors (I timed it twice). On the fastest setting, it takes less than a second to pass through red, orange, and yellow. I wish they had balanced the fade better so the time spent on each color was about equal.

Additionally, the light strip seems to stutter a little when in the green/teal/light blue range. It seems to go straight from green to teal without fading between the colors. It's not super noticeable since the colors aren't hugely different but I'm a real stickler for colors so I notice.

Other Thoughts: It's still a very cool piece of equipment and it makes my case look nice, but I really wanted a true rainbow in my case with all the colors represented equally. I'm still happy to have it in my case but I am disappointed with those issues.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: The colors are brilliant and you can make almost any shade of any color you want.

The control panel feels like a quality piece.

It has a connector on the end, if you should need to add another strip to the control panel.

I think you can cut it to size without destroying it, but double check that!

At about 6ft long, it is exactly the right length for my full tower Cooler Master Haf X

You'll find yourself admiring your hardware.

Cons: Dials have no detents or stops and can be turned in either direction indefinitely. (Just a nitpick)

I mounted it with cable ties, because the adhesive looks pretty weaksauce. (Also not a big deal)

Other Thoughts: I wish it could store a few of your most frequently used colors.

I wish it had stops at min/max for each dial, but I could see this causing durability issues if one were to force it past the stops.

2 out of 5 eggsIt was great... for a few uses...

Pros: The color range and mode settings are phenomenal
The unit is very user friendly
Cable management is beautifully done in a 5.25" form factor

Cons: •Cheap plastic — you can see marks from where it came out of the injection mold
•Flexes easily in Drive Bay
I must have tested the unit 6 or 7 times, and then I had to unplug the LED strip for a few days to test certain parts of the system. Well, when I plugged it back in, I only got Yellow-Red, and the strip was in the correct orientation. I decided to scrap it when I started smelling smoke. it damaged some wires I'd routed with the included cable management clips (in the 5.25" bracket), and I had to replace the cables. Not sure what caused the smoke, but it didn't lead to any happiness here.

Other Thoughts: If this didn't happen to you, then great—enjoy the beautiful colors. It looks wonderful when it works. If it DOES happen to you, I recommend you do what I did, and place it gently into the waste bin and wait for it to be out of your hair. I don't have time to deal with it. It's neither something so expensive that I can be bothered to RMA it, nor something so cheap that I can justify buying another one. I will continue to buy NZXT products in the future, just not this.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far Appears To Be Moderate To Good Quality

Pros: Seems to be well built....the body of it is made with durable plastic and wasn't flimsy like a lot of china, taiwan, and hong kong junk.

Manufacture must have listen to past complaints of there not being long enough cables since manufacture made the SATA input power cable to approx. 18" long starting from the very back end of body on this RGB controller. The 4-pin output cable going to the led lights is approx. 32" long starting from the very back end of the body. This should give plenty of ability to meet the needs of all types of pc case designs and individual preferences of how/where to run the cables.

The 3 knobs fit snuggly without much play in them and they rotate with a firm but smooth feel.

Cons: About the only complaint I have with this item is that they opted to give you 4 very chintzy and short mounting screws...Even when having applied very little torque and having the mounting holes lined up perfectly, the screws strip easily. Upon checking the distance at which the screw threads actually thread into the embedded nut on the body of this item, only about 3 threads were actually getting threaded into the nut and so not much support/stability.

Other Thoughts: I bought this exact item from Newegg's store on E bay for approx. 33.00 and free shipping, and although I need to put this led controller to more use in order to see if the quality is long term, I feel up to this point that I made a pretty good investment!

5 out of 5 eggsController BOSS

Pros: This is a very good product. I had an initial concern that the cable might not be long enough to fit the case. On installation, this was immediately dispelled. Actually. It ended up being too long and I had to hide some of it away. (I guess I could have cut it too).

Cons: There really needs to be more than one cable power connection that you can position alternate cables in your case. This would make this the perfect lighting accessory. Not enough of an issues to loose an egg. It is that good a product.

Other Thoughts: Very good product. I would recommend to any case modder.

4 out of 5 eggsExactly what I expected.

Pros: Adjustable colors, SATA power connection, long enough LED strip, easy to install. Fits in with HAF case styling.

Cons: As others have noted, the adhesive is abysmal. I installed it in a brand new case, with no fingerprints or oils anywhere, and a few days after I installed it, the strip started falling down. Fortunately, a couple drops of superglue solved the problem areas.

Other Thoughts: Makes customizing glow super easy, looks very nice, does what the box says. Better adhesive would be a good idea for any hardware revisions.

1 out of 5 eggsSeems hit or miss

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap

Other Thoughts: I really wanted this to work because it really seems like a great solution for computer case lighting. I bought this a few months back while I was putting together my new pc. It was the last item I actually installed and I tested it before doing so. My mistake was not testing all the functions or colors. When I finally got it in I began messing around with it and to my dismay I could only get the red and green lights to work. No white, Blue, etc. When I changed the function to fading it faded between green and red. Then black for a couple of beats then red and green again. I really don't feel like going through the hassle of an RMA and ripping this out of my system. I'll just deal with just the red and green lights only. If you decide to buy this test everything, and I mean everything, out before you install it. Well I learned my lesson with NZXT products.
