EXTREME!! LOL! Bright! *(See: Other thoughts)*
Pros: Bright! Did I mention BRIGHT!?!? Solid construction, good adhesive, quality connector and packaging. Flexible and stays put. Added case accent lighting and tucks out of the way. Built like a tank for hardcore enthusiasts who do not want diffuse lighting, but want to spotlight components TO THE EXTREME!!!! Seriously people, they took this thing to the limit of what they could legally ship in terms or lumen output and then CRANKED IT UP A NOTCH TO ELEVEN!!!
Cons: Price, but you get what you pay for. Maybe too bright for some. Took awhile to lose the "memory" of being curled up inside the package, had to lay flat under books for a week until it was straight. Smelled highly of VOCs as if plastic had just been made when opened, but dissipated quickly. No included switch / controller, but has the capability to dim significantly. I cannot imagine a backplane / rheostat combination would have added to the already high price too much.
Other Thoughts: It has a few, very bright LEDs. If this is what you want, it works. If you want a string of many, dimmer LEDs, this is not what you want. I was going for a more subtle case illumination that I wanted to light indirectly in a glowing fashion, but whatever, I have insane blue spotlights inside my case that light up my room and halfway down the hallway at night instead. No biggie as I bought this to sell, but I wouldn't keep it for myself= too distracting. If you think ground effects on cars are cool and really need everyone at the LAN party to see your tricked out rig, this is a product for you! You will marvel at the ability of these tiny LEDs to down aircraft with their laser-like intensity! Overall, a bit pricey, but I'm not the target consumer for this product, so I can't knock the build quality, just the price. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I did writing it; I think my wife is calling me, but I can't see due to my burned retinas... all I can see is BLUE!

Awesome LED strip
Pros: Nice shade of blue, matched my cooler master haf 932 advanced blue led fan perfectly. Very bright LED's.
Cons: Sticky backing was coming off slughtly on one end, but managed to get it in my case in a very nice spot and hold.
Other Thoughts: Getting another one soon for the top side to make the whole case look nicer. If you have a larger case like mine, I recommend buying 2 strips at once, (top and bottom)
