    I was hoping that it would be more respondant to the ambient colors; however, you're able to select colors of many varieties as well as different patterns of color. I have mine set so that it cycles through all the colors slowly which seems to reduce eye strain. The wireless remote is RF so there's no need to point the remote anywhere specific. With the ability to cycle patterns and/or a multitude of colors I'm sure that it would be beneficial for gamers or those with televisions that produce more strain on the eyes. In which case, you can choose all the colors/patterns/speed of transitions or leave it solid so that it works with the imbalance of your television color. I like it, I got it on sale and would recommend it. It's an intermediary between a smart home device and individually controlled device. It plugs right into my Samsung 4K Curve so it turns right on whenever I turn on the TV.

    I totally thought this was going to be a gimmick and something I would only use while listening to music on my TV. I use it all the time because I like watching TV in the dark and the HALO formed around the TV is a great contrast and keeps you focused on the screen. It turns on and off with the power of the TV and is plugged in via USB so it doesn’t require a dedicated outlet which is a plus. It took me about 10-15 minutes to determine which set up I wanted on the back of my TV and get it installed and glowing. Love it!

    I had been wanting to buy these lights for some time now. I kept buying the Insignia brand whenever they would be on special, and finally got these on Deal of the Day real cheap. They are pretty cool the remote lets you change the color, intensity and even change from one color to another. The only thing I really didn't like is that the highest brightness is real dim. When you compare them to the Insignia brand, Insignia is a lot brighter than these lights. The nice thing is they come with everything you need to set them up right away. In the future I am going to stick to the Insignia brand as they are brighter.

    I got this on a daily deal and was glad I didn't pay full price. Its basic functionality is there: remote, variety of colors, and usb connection. My main reason for not five stars is the lack of adhesion to the back of my tv. I ended up supporting the strip with small strips of duct tape. It's not pretty, but holds the strip in place. It also didn't seem to get as bright as other lighting I have used. I definitely would not pay full price for this item.

    The color range is decent, brightness is decent as well. It seems to be missing white though, which is odd since most other “color” light strips have a white option...it’s a great starting point for bias lighting for those unsure if they’ll like it. My Sony TV provinces power over USB, even when the TV is in “sleep” mode, which causes the lights to flash occasionally. I ended up using a USB cable extension and plugging it into an outlet instead.

    This was very easy to install on my 65 inch flat screen. It has quite a few different color setting ranging from solid to a slow change through all the colors. You can change the speed at which it cycles through but obviously the slower the better. Definitely looks cool and thats about all you get from it. The novelty of it wears out quick.

    Excellent addition to the living room. The Halo lighting adds just the right amount of ambience to a dark room. Makes movie viewing at home easier. Would not recommend for a TV fixed right up against a wall. White light looks great! I got this for a great price at Best Buy.

    Good for 55" TV or smaller

    Using it on my 55" TV is barely fits around the TV close enough to make the light bright enough. Only other complaint, I have a texture on the back of the TV and the 3M tape doesn't stick too well. Could use more color choices, but like that it remembers the last setting upon turning the TV on.

    Installation was super easy and straight forward. The colors aren’t exactly correct. The purple is blue. The yellow is more green. The blue is a light blue. White isn’t really white. However, I do enjoy the look it brings to the display. Overall, I like the product.

    I bought it on sale for 20$. And it really does change you experience with TV. It turns on automatically when turning on my TV and it connects to the USB port on the back of the TV. The only downfall is the adhesive on the strip, it’s not the greatest

    The best part was the easy installation to my 52" LG 4k TV. Makes a big difference in my master bedroom, where we watch TV more in the dark. The blue ambiance is our favorite.

    I love the idea of this product and love the product itself. My only complaint is that I wish it was brighter. The only time its really practical is when all of the lights are off. It adds a cool feature to your tv.

    Based on what we read from other reviewers, we bough 2 of these to have enough to go around our 75" tv. Easy to install, and no issues with its function. Looks good when the lights are off.

    Bought as a deal of day, so didn't pay much. Item works as described. Many reviews said it enhanced picture. Not so sure about that, but again for the price I figured it was worth a shot.

    The colors are off, for instance blue is more purple but i have seen other products from amazon have the same tints so it is normal. I love using this for watching movies in the dark.

    It actually does help viewing the screen distractingly the surroundings interference. The only reason it’s not a five star is actually towards most TVs only have one usb port.

    Very cool feature added to my TV. It was very easy to install and instantly made viewing more pleasurable. The colors aren’t very true, but there’s enough variety to find something you’ll like.

    The light are amazing when watching tv, picture really stands out, but the color white doesn’t really look white. Other than that great for watching movies and other things on it!

    These lights are really cool around the TV. I have a “65 inch and they go around most of the sides and the top! Different color and mode options. Got them on sale!
