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.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE IT!!!

Pros: + Makes the Corsair big window look great with the new rig and it's cool looking components.

+ I love that I can set it for any color I want, or cycle through colors slowly. (though I'd like the speed to go even 2x slower)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I see people complain that the glue backing is weak. I made VERY sure to remove any oils from fingerprints off the case before I stuck the lights in. I've been running for about 3 weeks without any issues.

NZXT are you listening?....

I would add a feature to drive this via software. I would like to pick the colors it cycles through cause some colors clash with the board/ram/other lights in the system.

I would also like to see a version of this with smaller segements of lights and a short 2" wire connector between them. This way I can stick it in the case without bending that thick rubberized strip. If you had a number of 5" and 10" strips that could be purchased they'd make it much easier to place in the case. As it is, it look like users could just cut the length shorter with a scissors if needed. (I'm not going to test this theory LOL). the strips of wire would make it easier to bend across corners, and run branches where other strips are needed.

5 out of 5 eggsNice lights

Pros: Works exactly as it's supposed to, looks nice, easy to install.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure you clean you case with Windex or alcohol wherever you plan to stick these lights.

Some small zip ties aren't a bad Idea where you can use them either.

2 out of 5 eggsEhh

Pros: Beautiful lighting with a near infinite amount of colors to choose from.
Quite bright compared to the old single colored led lights.

Cons: How long have we have 3M sticky tape? A long time. Still this thing won't stick longer for a day or two then comes crashing down.

Other Thoughts: Cleaned the inside of my case. Let it dry. And 2 hours later, the led strip comes crashing down. Rewire it so that there was less pressure on the top strip and still wouldn't stay up. I find it extremely annoying as my old cold cathode never came down and was much much brighter. You don't understand though, this 3M sticking film is utterly terrible and idk why NZXT insists on using cheap mounting solutions. I had their old LED lighting system and even then, the tacky and lightweight holding clips would fall every day until I used tape to hold it up. So bottom line, the thing it's supposed to do most basically, is stay on the case...it doesn't do that. It doesn't do that at all. I put one in my computer case, nope fell off. Put one in my brother's computer, and the tape peeled off the strip then wouldn't stay on it. Then a day later, it fell off his case as well. It is without a doubt the single most disappointing piece of hardware I've ever bought for any computer and I have bought many. Stay away unless you mean to super glue it to your case. But I feel like that shouldn't be necessary.

4 out of 5 eggsOther options

Pros: NZXT products are awesome and thats a fact.

Cons: For about half the price I went and bought a 150 roll of 5050 RGB leds and controller which comes with a IR remote. Unlimited colors and tons of fade/strobe/flash options. It does require soldering skills, heat shrinking, male molex housing, male molex pins and wiring. Simple if you have the equipment and are familiar with soldering/wiring. Theres just a lot more options and custom ability.

Other Thoughts: They did not make this two years ago. They had LED strips on 3bay which connected through a 4 wire to a very small led controller which was 12v powered (by barrel jack at controller and male molex psu) You also got a 48 key remote which was controlled by a IR sensor. Its cheaper to go this route and the possibilities are endless. It was and still is a DIY. Now I see products like this and exactly the way I made mine coming out on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Lights

Pros: Fully adjustable!
Different levels of brightness, and the brightest is pretty bright.
Red to Violet and anything in between!
You can also get white (turning all R,G,B, to max), though you need to fine-tune things a bit and have a good eye for the color.
Nice and long

Cons: Sticky tape cover was kind of hard to peel off. Some tabs would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Vibrant colors, great "modes" with flashing, varying brightness, and varying colors. Cannot think of anything missing from this controller.

Great product.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite nice, really

Pros: The lights look great. The different color modes are fun. I really like the slow fade; it's nice to watch the inside of the PC colored by different colors of light as it slowly moves from one hue to the next. The head unit feels relatively solid for the price point. Installation was a snap, with no rude surprises. I put this guy in a budget (~$50) gaming case.

Cons: The adhesive could be better, but there's something to be said for ease of removal, as well. For a super-solid setup, I'd use little plastic clips that attach to the case better than the light strip does. That said (only a month in), I haven't had any come unattached.

Other Thoughts: I was somewhat skeptical, but impressed. Figuring out how to change modes and what pushing vs. turning all the knobs went was a bit cumbersome (since the "manual" is kind of brief), but technically it is all in there. If you have a spare 5.25 bay, this is a fun and affordable mod to use it for.
