5 out of 5 eggsOverall a good product

Pros: Great colors and options, just like stated.

Cons: After 1 year and 8 months I have noticed that at 3 locations I have had only the blue LED go out.

Not a biggie, but I figured the LED would have lasted longer.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent lighting

Pros: -Lots of different settings
-Good long cable (enough to go all the way around an NZXT Source 210 with a little to spare)
-Good color range
-Brightness and toggle are useful for use in a dark room

Cons: The knobs stick out about a half-inch from the panel, so if your 5.25 bays are covered by a door or something you may have to mount this a little pushed in.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people I build PCs for ask if it's possible to do something "like Alienware, where the lights can be any color." Up until I found this, I always had to tell them no. Since then I've used this in a couple of builds, and to much success. It's simple and doesn't take up much space at all.

2 out of 5 eggsNZXT Hue RGB LED Controller

Pros: Ease of use.
Simple operations.
Various brightness levels.
SATA powered

Cons: Strip fall off often.
No change in color when rotating the knobs.
Difficult installation particularly around the corners of the case.

Other Thoughts: NZXT Hue is good product with hassle free operations. It has 2 meter LED strip with 24 RGB LEDs on it. Hue is provided in the form 5.25" bay drive. Installation of controller is easy though pasting of led strip can be painful.

My controller is not changing the Blue color no matter what knob I rotate, however pressed functions of knobs are working as they should.

I've contacted NZXT support service but so far there is no response from them.

2 out of 5 eggsNZXT Hue RGB Controller

Pros: All in one, hassle free, great lighting solution for the PC Case. Hue case utilize 5.25" bay drive to fit into. It comes with 2 meter LED strip with 24 RGB LEDs on it.

Strip can be mounted using 3M adhesive tape. Tape is very sticky on feel but you have to be lucky to get it pasted in the case.

Controller itself has two cables, one is to connect LED strip with the controller. Make sure to match led strip + symbol with arrow or triangle symbol on the power cable to match the polarity.
Second is the SATA connector for powering the Hue. This connector can be connected on any standard SATA power connector from PSU.


There are three knobs on the controller through which this lighting effects and color combination can be manipulated namely Red, Green, Blue. One can rotate the knobs to get the desire color.

Also each knob can be pressed to get more functionality:

Red knob can be pressed to change the 5 brightness levels.

Green knob can be pressed to power on/off the controller.

Blue knob can be pressed to get lighting effects: Normal, Fading, Flashing, Pulsating.

To sum it up:

Very easy installation.
Very easy operation.
RGB means customization in LED lighting.
Multiple effects with color changing options.

Cons: Cable fall off too often.

Can't change the color from blue to any other with knob rotation (So far support service is silent) Very bad NZXT. I've ended up paying canadian 110 dollars to get this product in my country. You can understand the level of frustration.

LED strip can't be cut off from anywhere else it will become useless.

Due to above mentioned reason, it is tricky matter to paste the LED strip inside the case, particularly at the corners of the case.

One needs to know that pasting the strip inside can have effect on light's brightness level. In one configuration, it lits up my complete case, even to the fact that lighting could be seen on the near wall outside the case but in the second configuration, it hardly lits up the complete case.

Other Thoughts: It would have been better if the strip can be little more flexible to bend and mount in the corners of the case. Product should work in its entirety right out of the box.

Packaging from NewEgg was good but I've just given two Eggs because product is not working properly and NZXT's customer support service is silent despite my complaint and emails.

4 out of 5 eggsAdd some light to your case

Pros: bright LEDs
Tons of color options
Several modes that you can switch between.

Cons: adhesive tape is not very sticky.

Other Thoughts: I have an Alienware laptop, and I wanted to be able to add a bit of lighting to my desktop build. I found this light controller and added it to my build. The LEDs are very bright, and the brightness can be adjusted. The strip of LEDs has adhesive tape on the back of it, but the tape failed after the first day. I just used a little bit of super glue in the corners of the case to keep it up.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really shows of my Corsair 540 case. Install into the drive bay was a snap and led strips are easy to apply.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The front panel design is a little bland, but lighting effects make up for this in a big way.

5 out of 5 eggsThey're just lights...

Pros: Lengthy LED strips
Easy to install
Terrific LED adjustments

Cons: I wish NZXT would include one extra tape strip for the LED strip.

Other Thoughts: There's really nothing wrong with this product, but I honestly expected to be wowed. Before buying this, I first thought that they're just lights, and it was almost just a waste of money to buy this. However, I became adventurous and decided that maybe if I had it, it'll change my opinion-I was wrong. IMO, they are JUST lights, and I just can't believe I spent $32 on this. I guess I wouldn't have known unless I gave this hue a try, but at the end of the day, I do regret buying this.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome product

Pros: This thing really is great. It is incredibly easy to install, looks amazing, and does everything that it claims to do. Many other reviews talk about the adhesive not being great, but I haven't had any issues with it; it adhered strongly, even around corners.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The only thing that could make this better would be if you could control it from your computer, either with something like NZXT CAM or even with a script (so you could vary color based on CPU usage, etc.)

4 out of 5 eggsNot so sticky

Pros: Nice color variation

Cons: A little cheap in quality but still not bad. The adhesive sucks, but you can just buy adhesive clips for a few dollars. Not a huge deal.
