    Accent lighting

    I have to say I was quite impressed with this strip of accent lighting for my new garage cabinets. Easy to install as you peel back a few inches at a time and apply. Throw a piece of duct tape on the end to be sure the weight of the switch does not start pulling the light strip down. The only downside was after installing I noticed the dim/ bright buttons were opposite of what the manufacturer stated they were. I just chuckled at it and know it's reversed of what the buttons say

    Lights used for kitchen under cabinet lighting

    This inexpensive set puts light on our kitchen counter underneath the upper cabinets. The self-stick is a bit flimsy and if it happens to pull away a bit from the cabinet, it may not stick back again. That happened in a small section to me so I used one of the small 3M Command Strip Hooks to hold the lights up. Another minor complaint is that some of the dimmer positions create an annoying flicker. Since we use the strip at full brightness, there is no issue with this problem for us. Finally, we had to purchase a small USB power adapter as the lights don't come with an adapter, only a standard USB plug. Even with that additional cost, the entire project was very inexpensive compared to purchasing and wiring from a professional company.

    Have it plugged in to an Alexa smart plug and turns on when I ask Alexa to turn on Entertainment center through my Logitech harmony hub. Puts out just the right amount of light without glare since its wrapped around the back edge of 60" TV. Brightness Can be adjusted by turning a dial. Bought two, one for top and bottom, use one during during the movie and turn on the other (by voice) when we have to get up and do something. Excellent add-on for Home Theater for a great price. Highly recommended for any reason you need easy on the eyes light. Have a longer one wrapped around the back of my leather couch for mood light, for example.

    Nice for use for above cupboard lighting in the kitchen. I just had to find some USB to AC adapter to plug into the outlets. Just make sure you pick the right adapters. I had a bunch laying around the house. The 1st set I tried caused the lights the flicker with the wall switch on the off position. Very nice white light!! Very bright!! I used these to replace some yellow looking rope lighting I had up there. Would buy again!! =)

    My first purchase of tape lights and I love them. Easy to use, wonderful to have a remote. I ordered another set after I bought these... It was a cheaper set by almost $10. However as soon as they arrived I plugged them and they did not work. I totally recommend these lights.... especially if you're in an older home like I am. Great for the closets cuz none of mine have lights. And the second pair I ordered I have in my bay window for Christmas lights. I can leave them up because they really can't be seen when off. With all the colors I can turn them on for Halloween, Valentine's Day, Saint Patrick's Day.

    It does its purpose... Lazily made

    For being a "warm" white it appears to be more "cool" or a bright white than what it suggests (other reviews does well to display that). For those who are interested in the cable length, it is about 40 inches from the control box to the base of the USB. The issues that I have with the unit are that the buttons are rather stiff, and you sometimes have to long press them before they turn on/off or changing the brightness. Secondly, the "bright" and the "dim" buttons are reversed (bright is dim and vice versa). It does what it needs to do but at $25, this isn't good.

    Great LED light strip for backlighting flatscreen

    This is the 3rd one of these I've purchased for exactly this purpose and they all work beautifully. All of our UHD screens (an LG OLED and two Viizio LED/LCD) have USB connections that power up these strips when turned on. Backlighting a flatscreen display is an excellent way of adding some (adjustable) ambient light to a darkened viewing area while simultaneously providing improved contrast and color perception.

    I bought two of these lights, they are nice

    I got two of these since one went to the back of the TV, when you turn on the TV the light turns on, and of course you can manually dimm it or make it brighter as you like. And the other light I placed it behind my headboard and have the switch on one side of the bed. Sometimes we have a snack and I do not want the lamps on while watching TV so this options works great. Good product, I like that it comes with self adhesive so you do not have to play around on how to install it with anything other than the tape it came with.

    This really is an Awsome light strip!,....stick this flexible light strip just about anywhere you need it. I personally use it as a night light, just peeled off the self adhesive backing and placed it on my bed rail and boom! There it was, a 7 way adjustable night light. Used another one in the closet as a utility light, all you need is a rechargeable battery bank as the power source or a USB power block,hooked into an ac outlet and your in business. This is truly a great versatile light source.

    Great Deal of Light for Simple Strip

    When on sale, this is a handy way to provide some nice lighting in a tight space. The USB cord is lengthy, so stealth can be on your side when concealing. I installed on the inside (top) of a Kobalt tool chest top lid... provides a ton of downward light, but not directly into your face. Can be cut/trimmed to fit specific applications, but to me, if you have to cut more than 2' off... you're better off finding another option instead of wasting your money on a 4' strip.

    not worth the money

    Picked up 3 sets of these on sale for $10 a piece. They aren't warm white and I would challenge Best Buy to explain how they can sell something claiming ~5000K is warm. They also flicker when at dim settings between minimum and max (all 3 did this). Plug runs hot in the USB outlet compared to other LED strips I own so I question the power draw needs for such as short strand. Longevity questionable. Definitely not worth full price.

    This light tape provides a surprising amount of light on the high setting. Lightweight and small, they are easy to mount and conceal. The adhesive backing performs much better than I expected. The power cord is also a reasonable lenght for most locations/applications. Be aware that the controller is located next to the light strip. This means, if you are mounting them somewhere high, the controls will be more difficult to reach.

    Bright and appealing

    Lights are made up of durable material and work with practically any devise with a USB port or even a phone charging cube. Different levels of brightness give the lights the appeal they need for different aspects of use. Only downfall is that they can not be controlled with a remote or any other device you have to control them from the cable it's self.

    Dramatically eased my eyestrain and made my TV look better. A good price for the features. I use it for bias lighting. Appropriate color temperature for accurate color representation and enhancing the perception of contrast. Automatically comes on with television when plugged into USB, variable brightness for any room. Cut-to-size for any TV, but I would use two for anything larger than 50 inches.

    Great LED Strip

    Dim to bright in steps. Very bright! Clear, flexible, continuous coating over LEDs. Holds lighting status when unplugged and plugged back in (or switched). Note that some USB power modules sometimes cause light strip to strobe at certain settings. Suspect that is is due to the voltage regulation of the power module (not included) and not the LED light strip.

    I was looking for a quick and affordable solution to create some ambient lighting behind my tv. I was able to attach the lights to the back using the adhesive and plug them into my TVs USB port for power. Overall very simple process. Adhesive could be a little better, luckily had some double sided tape to keep the stripe attached to the tv.

    I tried to install this in my disabled Father's kitchen to give him more light. At first when I opened it I thought it would work great. But when I went to install it the solder where the wires attach broke free without any type of man handling. The kicker?? I bought it in early Dec and try to install now. Looks like I can't return it or have it replaced as per BestBuy.com. Thanks!!

    I caught these on sale so my opinion may be higher than average. When you unplug these lights they retain whatever state and setting you had them on, which is perfect for me because I turn them on and off remotely via a wifi plug. The brightness ranges from very bright to somewhat dim with 7 increments. Adhesive backed and very flexible, I like these lights.

    I love these little lights. Three feet was perfect for me to provide under counter lighting in my kitchen. I also use them under my TV stand. The only down side is the sticky adhesive does start to come off. I will probably be buying more. I like that they plug in with USB.
