    Adds ambiance to your home theater setup

    I have an older 55" Panasonic TV that works pretty well so I decided to mount it to the wall. Adding the LED lights to the rear took it up a notch and its really cool to look at on the wall when using the TV. TIP: When attaching these lights to your TV, don't stick them right near the back edge of your set. Place them about 2-3" in from the edge to give off a nice glow that's not overwhelmingly bright. I also found that the 8 foot length was shorter than I would have liked but I made it work. I would recommend going up to the longer length if you TV is 55" or larger.

    I have a lot of experience with LED lighting and there isn't an incandescent light anywhere to be found in our home now. I've been using a lot of 'wired' LED light strings and this is the first 'tape' light I've used. I bought two of them. I used one on the back of our 65" 4K TV and I used one on the back of my daughter's over-sized wood headboard. The adhesive worked well on each of these different surfaces and the effects are great. The control panel is easy to use we use all of its features. I plan to purchase more.

    Not Smart, But Simple

    These are nothing fancy, or high tech. These can't connect to your phone via wifi. They are completely independent and only have three buttons to work with over 20 lighting options. They're also dimmable. I have high recommendations because theses are not that expensive, and for those that aren't invested into Phillips Hue, it's as simple as plugging these into an outlet and pressing a button. No wifi setup, and the lights are really good and bright too.

    I bought something similar from a major online retailer. The prices were the same but theirs came with a remote which is nice until you can’t find it because of your 4 year old. I like this because the mechanism to change the color is on the string and I don’t have to worry about keeping up with a remote. And it’s SUPER sticky. It hasn’t fallen off like the others. I don’t have to reinforce with hot glue or tape like I’ve had to do with the other ones I bought.

    Makes your TV and room look great

    These look great and install very easily. I wrap them around my whole TV and with no problems. I have installed these on multiple TV's. Some TV's can't provide enough power via USB to drive the lights at maximum brightness, so you can either use a wall plug or make sure you don't increase the brightness too far. These don't use a remote, which is what I wanted, but if you'd like to control from a distance then this product isn't 5 stars for you.

    I installed this LED strip hidden behind a wall mounted TV in between the 5"-6" gap between the TV and the wall. For power, I plugged it into the USB port on the back of the TV. With the LED strip lit up, it emits a nice colored glow from behind the TV :) It definitely adds some great style to the room ambiance whether the TV is on or OFF. Sometimes the smallest things make the greatest difference!

    Bought these for a bookshelf that I had bought so I could show off some statues that are on it. Lights are great, you can change the colors and intensity to your liking. The only problem I found was that these don't come with a remote so you have to physically go and change the color and intensity. The pro is it comes with an adapter to plug into the wall. Overall they look nice and really make your room look amazing.

    This 8 ft strip was enough to go around the sides and top of my 55" TV. It is powered by a USB port on the TV and turns on and off with the TV. Lots of color and brightness settings let you customize it to your liking. I thought I would miss having a remote, but I don't find myself wanting to adjust it often enough to justify the extra expense; it was a Deal of the Day and super-cheap!

    Light looks as cool as I had hoped, and I had hoped it would be cool - ha! I installed this 8ft. along the top of the cabinets in my kitchen to serve as indirect light - a soft glow just enough so one can find one's way around without needing to turn on the bright lights. I plan to pick up the 16ft version as soon as it goes on sale and install it along the peninsula in my kitchen.

    These are priced nicely as a budget option to apply bias lighting on a TV. Get rid of glare and bring out the contrast on your set while easing eyestrain. Comes with several different colors and seven levels of brightness.

    I got this on sale which was great and the light is nice, I just thought it'd be a little brighter than my previous light. Different brand but this had more LEDs. A little disappointed but... I use for my toolbox hutch for work and it lights it up nicely enough. Brighter would be better, however.

    This strip is exactly what I was looking for. Simple. Plugged into power strip with outlet adapter. Don’t go too quick through the colors if your searching for a specific one, you’ll skip it and have to cycle through again. Learned the hard way! Ha. Used under my extended monitor stand to add illumination to the main surface of the desk. Awesome product.

    I bought the lights to go around the tv, I thought 8 feet was too long it was actually too short to fit around my 65in tv. I’ll be buying some more for my entertainment system I love how it looks @ night. I use them for a night light as well for the living room, I just Change the color to a more bighter color!

    I just started using the LED lights and I like the controller is attached to the light cord. so many kits I looked at had a remote control and for me that is just one more clutter item. I installed them under my fireplace mantel for a cool look.

    Bouught this to go behind my workstation. Pleasantly surprised how easy it is to install. Sticks well to wood. The colors are bright and crisp and its simple to switch colors depending on your mood. Been using for about four months now and it’s working well with no issues experienced. Good value for money!

    I use it for my 65’ Sony 900F and it’s perfect size, it makes everything looks good, tape works good on plastic behind tv, quality is good and it also came with the usb wall plug adapter but I plugged it into the tv USB port so it turns on and off with the tv. I did not want a WiFi one and this is simple and works great!

    Great lights for the price, and just about the right length. I like the fact it comes with the tape for easier attachment to walls or windows. The only thing that didn't allow me to give 5 stars is that you can only have one color at a time and switch to whichever color you want, but don't have the option for multicolor.

    I like having the light strip on while watching movies at night. It adds a touch of light to the room and makes the screen stand out a little better. This one has many colors to choose from, I personally like the blue/purples . This adhered well and I haven’t had any issues with it.Hoghly recommend this Insignia product.

    Caught on sale - paid $20. Nice light behind tv and colors are awesome, only gripe is that is doesn’t go around 55” tv like package said it would. Only got 3 sides (top and left & right side) no bottom. Other than short length decent product for $20. Would not pay full price

    These lights look very nice and are much cheaper than the more expensive light strips. There’s no remote and there’s no app but if you’re looking for a cheaper color light strip these are great. Lots of good colors, dimmable setting, and stick well.
