HitLights Warm White LED Strip Light Plug-To-Use Kit, 5M or 16.4Ft, SMD3528, 300 LEDs, With 12 Volt Transformer And Dimmer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A good value, a little over $20 to add a warm glow to your project. The thin LED strip is adhesive-backed and can be wrapped around corners, or cut as small as 5 cm / 2 in / 3 LEDs. Cut pieces can be joined with clip-on connectors, or soldered using jumper wire if you're patient and careful. The "warm white" LEDs have an attractive color and appear to have good color rendering. The dimmer control provides a good range of adjustment.

Cons: The power supply originally sent (Model SAW24-120-2000) made a buzzing noise and would cause the lights to strobe when turned up to full brightness. I complained to HitLights, who promptly sent me a different power supply (Model JY30-120-200-UD) which appears to be the supply pictured. This supply gives decent brightness, a full range of adjustment with the dimmer supplied and silent operation. Both power supplies are tagged as 12V 2000mA, but read on...

Other Thoughts: Checking with my kill-a-watt tester, the replacement power supply draws only 14-15 watts. The original (buzzing faulty) power supply could be coaxed up to about 18 watts before it started flashing. Since you can't get something for nothing, I'd bet that a better power supply that could drive a full 20-plus watts would produce better brightness.

The strip is rated for 24 watts, and at that power would probably produce about the same light level as a 2-tube 4' fluorescent fixture, which draws about 75 watts. But this kit is more for decoration than illumination, and for that is a good value.

LG 27MP33HQ Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: A nice sized panel to use with a media player in a not-overly-bright room. Has a headphone / audio out jack, which is good because it does not have speakers. Slim design fits nicely on a wall mount in the corner.

Cons: No speakers, as I mentioned. Only has VGA and HDMI, no DVI connection. The brightness spec (200 cd) is less than most competitors. Wall-wart power block with a rather short cord.

Other Thoughts: I'm got this for 180 to use as a media player in a basement rec-room; add a pair of speakers and it makes a nice upgrade from the 23" monitor it replaces.

Rosewill RHTB-11003 - 26
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sturdy, well made, nicely finished. Comes with a generous selection of hardware for a variety of wall applications and monitor configurations. Even a spirit level to help you hang the wall rail straight.

The wall rail is 21.25" wide, so you can certainly span two standard 16" wall studs, if you feel the need to. For most applications, one stud and one wall anchor should be more than adequate.

Cons: The monitor rails are 17.6" tall, so they will stick out both above and below the 32" monitor I had intended to use it with. Not at all the invisible, low-profile look I intend to achieve.

Other Thoughts: This mount is well sized for my 42" monitor, but again, is unacceptably large for my 32" monitor. I hope the dimensions I provided will help others avoid my mistake.
