    Great customer service when not working

    These LED lights are a great and relatively inexpensive way to make your TV setup look a lot more professional. However, make sure that ALL lights are off and curtains shut for best effect. A lot of other reviews mention issues with the adhesive, but with a quick cleaning to get rid of dust, I have had no issues at all having the lights stick to my TV. I did have an issue ~10 days after installation, which another user seemed to have. While watching TV with the strip off, they suddenly turned themselves on and were constantly flashing through red, then green, then blue colors, and were unresponsive to the remote. The only way to turn it off was by unplugging. I called their customer support and had to leave a message, but was followed up with the next day by the owner of the company. He simply asked for a picture of the box and my address, and said that he would ship a new one to me. That was great, but it turned out that the company is actually based out of the city I live in, so he came all the way to where I live to hand-deliver a new one for me. Hopefully this one works longer, but if not, I have full confidence that I would again receive excellent and quick service!

    Easy to apply, enhances experience

    I'd read about the bias lighting on a techie site, but decided not to do it due to the price. But when I saw a daily deal that had the Halo at almost 1/2 price, I jumped on it. It's very easy to apply. I recommend not immediately sticking it to the TV - start with Scotch taping it, then watch TV or a movie to make sure you like the effect and the placement. Once you've decided where to apply it, just peel off the backing and stick it. Corners are a little awkward because the tape is stiff, but they provide two options to choose from. I really like the colored bias because you can choose from about 6 colors, including white. You can also change the brightness, which is a great feature. I've only had it on my TV for a few days, so I can't comment on the durability or longevity, but it looks great and it does enhance the TV experience. Note: I applied it to a 65" TV and had plenty of tape.

    After getting this product don't understand how it is not a standard feature in a high end TV. I was pleased with my Samsung 82 inch TV, my only complaint was the light in the border of the screen, something inherent of the technology, and decided to try this backlight, and it did work like a charm! The TV watching experience is much better and the change in contrast makes unnoticeable the light of the screen. Would highly recommend to any TV enthusiast, installation was very easy, did it without removing the TV from the wall, and the power comes from the USB port of the TV, so turns on and off with the TV. Great product!

    So, we bought this, along with a soundbar and 49” tv for my sons birthday! The lights were so easy to install (5min) and looked stunning! Son loved the TV and freaked when he heard the soundbar. Final cherry on top was THE LIGHTS! He and our younger son all said “WHOAAAAAAAA!!!!” and absolutely love it. These lights are for enhancement and they do just that... AND MORE! It’s awesome and friends/family who come over are in awe of the overall effect and feeling in the room. We have thought for years about getting something like this. Had we known it was this simple and affordable we would have gotten it sooner! Thanks for a great product!

    Wow... what a difference.

    Even after reading tech blogs about the benefits of bias lights with TV watching experience, I was very skeptical if they would make any difference, especially on my OLED 65 inch TV, which already had excellent picture. The Halo lights are very easy to install and it fit my 65 LG OLED TV perfectly. To my surprise, having the bias lights actually enhanced my TV experience... especially watching a show in the evening with the lights off. The contract seems to pop out more vividly and its easier on my eyes (less strain). Having the remote to change color, depending on movie, sports, gaming, etc. also is great. Nice product and would definitely recommend.

    One of those products you dont think about but once you have it, you love it! Bought it on the deal of the day just for fun, but it really does add a cool touch to the room. Recently bought a new tv so had to buy another one for that TV as well. Wont have a TV again with out it. Just adds a nice touch to the room. Gets compliments from friends when over. Used to have white walls and it did work way better, now walls are painted so only certain colors work well but still like the product

    I bought this just recently when a friend told me about it. It was really easy to install (basically a flexible LED light strip with adhesive on the back). The remote made it really easy to pick different colors and my kids loved the "Party" mode. My favorite colors are not the white that is recommended but instead the blue or green (see photo). Those backlight options really made the colors on my screen pop. I think the backlight made it easier to enjoy movies and games while keeping the room nice and dark. Overall - highly recommended for the $$$.

    I wasn't sure of this concept, but for deal of the day I tried it, I figured if it didn't work I'd put it in an art piece. It really does provide an effect that seems to make movie viewing in the dark easier or more enjoyable. But Not sure it actually tricks the eyes into thinking TV colors are better. I prefer the white/blue/violet, and slow- low lumens. But have not tried all the options yet. Do wish it had a code for the options instead of scrolling thru the remote to find one.

    It was very easy to install. I was able to do it myself while the TV was still on the wall. I sleep with the TV on, but since I added the Halo light and set it to red, I seem to sleep better. The hubby finds that hard to beleive & thinks it’s kind of a stupid thing, but I Love it! I wish there was an option for it to go off & on automatically when the tv turned off or on a timer.

    i must start out by saying that i wasn't really sure about using this in my home theater setup. i never really saw a need for such a thing. the installer of my new television recommened this lighting from best buy and said since it was on sale for $20 bucks i should give it a try. well let me tell you what a difference this has made. not only does it enhance the picture it gives the room a nice look also. this lenght was perfect for my 75 inch tv.

    I don't typically take the time to write a review, but really think this is a cool way to enhance your TV watching experience. Installed the Halo lighting around my 55 inch TV (literally took a few minutes to do). Love how it illuminates while watching movies and gaming. My kids absolute love it and especially love the "Party mode" feature when they do Karaoke thru the TV! Cool little product. I plan on getting it for all of my TV's!

    I found this to be relatively easy to install with good directions provided. Read all directions first, do clean the surface so that it will adhere well. This worked for our 65” TV perfectly. I placed it all around top and two sides about 3” away from edge. Beautiful colors, just enough color and isn’t over the top. Multiple colors including white. I love the purple.

    This product is great to spice up your TV or room - the lighting effect is really awesome, adding a glow around the TV. I don’t know if it truly increases the image quality, but it does improve the ambiance and experience of watching your favorite show, with adjustable lighting effects. It’s just one of those cool products that you don’t really need but is just fun to have!

    This fit our 65" TV perfectly, and was pretty easy to install...just be sure to clean the back of the TV first. The various color options are very nice, there's sure to be something that works with the wall color behind it. If it's too bright, turn it down, if you're having a party, make it flash...there are lots of options on the remote!

    As advertised, this is an excellent addition to the black hole of televisions in dark rooms. It makes for a more pleasant viewing experience with the contrast and color of your TV become much more true to the eye. So glad to find this and the cool factor of the light adds to the whole experience.

    I bought these to add a little zest to my living room and absolutely love them. It's a subtle change but looks fantastic. Being a baseball fan (GO Giants) I love turning the lights green while watching a game. I recently contacted their customer service (my silly dog ate my remote) and they couldn't have been more helpful. I highly recommend this company.

    Was looking for a solution due to the light glares in my man cave TV. found out Ambien lights behind the TV work wonders. This product is amazing but unfortunately it works too well as I can't keep my family out of my man cave. We each enjoy watching TV with different colors behind it. Definitely recommend this product

    I could never stand to watch TV in the dark, but with HALO, I now can! Turns our den into a theatre. Better than a theatre in that we can change colors for fit the program or the mood. Turn down the lights, make some popcorn, and binge away! The picture never looked better with the color ambient lighting behind the TV.

    I’m really glad I bought the Halo with the multiple color selection. Our wall is blue, and instead of white light behind tv, it’s a light blue. But with the many color choices it can definitely enhance your viewing pleasure. Works great, easy to install, really does help eye strain.

    It’s a really cool effect! Simple to install and control. Comes on automatically when my tv on too! I wear glasses for eye strain and the ambient lighting actually helps my eyes when I’m watching something in a dark room, also makes the tv stand out and look really cool! Great accessory to my oled
