  • A great buy!

    My friend keeps some of these still on a reel under his desk, figuring these look pretty good i bought some for my new office. Simple to set up and come with their own sticky backing, i have set these up around the top of my room on the wall just before the roof. one thing i will say ... if youre sticking them on washable wall paper and expecting them to go around corners, they will... but dont expect them to fit into every corner perfectly, they arent THAT bendable (although ill conceed i have managed to get it so that an LED is on the corner) i would reccomend if placed on an uneven object (like my corners) that the glue on the backs just wont hold it.... i found a small amount of white-tac to level off the corners worked great though. I havnt tried connecting two parts, but regardless of the connector concerns on a review here... im looking forward to trying. At highest level i would argue these are as good as energy saver blubs for lighting a room (my room is about 3m by 3m) one of these will easily light my room to what i want of a nighttime on while or blue... potentially not as good as mains lights, but with them up high reflecting the white roof i cant tell the difference except that most people have more yellowish lightbulbs so you might recongise a more familiar hue from the lightest orange which is not as bright.. All in all, for the price i think these are great!

  • Great

    all great, nice effect, I plan to purchase another small information for JAMES end others If I understand correct the first what you purchase after connecting they just constantly illuminating red. It happens like that when you connect power ( "-"with"+" end "+" with"-" = constant red light ) when shoot be ("-" with"-" end "+"with"+"). The simplest solution is to disconnect end rotate led strip at the point where its connecting with cable by 180 degrees

    This kit is good if you do not want to cut and connect, the push connectors just do not work, I tried for 3 hous to get them working and ended up using a soldering iron to connect, and because the contacts are small it can be difficult.

  • Very pleased

    Just received a pack of these in the post having ordered yesterday. Tried them straight away and they work fine, no bad LED's and they scroll through the various colours with no problem. The kit comes with 4 short (100mm) extension cables which let you cut and join the 5m strip around corners. The only down side is there are no long cables, so you can't have one strip above some units and the other below. I guess you can buy these but the only one I saw on the Maplin website was cheap so I will cut one of the short ones and solder in some extra lengths of wire. Not a big issue, just a niggle. Not sure about a couple of comments saying you don't need extra room lighting when set to the "white" mode. Yes they are bright but still only really mood lighting. Ok to keep on at night in the kitchen when going for snacks! Overall I'm very pleased.

  • Could be a great item but....

    Brought one of these after Christmas to light up a internal wall in our house (mood lighting), wanted this version as its very bright and has a great range of colours including brilliant white (does all this on each led not like the cheaper internet auction ones that use separate red |green | blue which causes a rainbow rather than white light) I went to install them but when I laid the reel out one LED 1metre in from the start was faulty, it was constantly illuminating red, this had the effect of ruining the whole effect I wanted when selecting white for example. I returned this unit and got a replacement, on reflection I wish I had kept the first unit, the second unit had 50 % of the red leds faulty, again I returned it and tried two others while in the store, these where the same as the second. I settled for a refund and put it down to a bad batch. I will be returning in the near future to try these again as I think they could be brilliant if fully working.

  • Excellent

    Contains everything you need to get up an running and is very simple to use. The remote control is a nice touch. A very effective lighting strip with great colour control. At the price it represents excellent value.

  • I bought 2 of these.... one for downlighting the work surface under the kitchen wall cupboards, the other on top to illuminate the ceiling. Sadly, one failed due to a poor connection from the transformer but once replaced by the most helpful people in Maplins I have ever come across, the end result was spectacular..!! The kitchen is transformed with a vast array of colours but, most importantly, the white is so bright, I don't need to have the main overhead lights on. Previous comment referred to the self-adhesive fixing tape supplied - I got around this by fixing it to the back of the pelmet of the cupboard, not to the underside of the shelf. Works brilliantly and I'd have great delight in recommending these.

  • It lights up, changes colour, has a remote control, and is literally brilliant. What's not to love? I got it for my 8-year-old's bedroom and it's a lot of fun playing with the colours. So much so, that my son said "Daddy, how much does it cost? Why don't you get your own?" I'd second the comments about the lack of glue but it sort of works where I have it - and I would say it looks best when reflecting off a wall, so the lights blend together, rather than seeing the lights directly. The white is quite a cold white but there's at least one colour that's quite a nice warm light. The single colours (R, G, B) are amazing. You can also control on/off, brightness, continuous automatic dim-bright-dim, and an automatic continuous colour-change cycle. These automatic cycles can be speeded up or slowed down using the "brightness" buttons. The power adaptor runs with no warmth, and the lights get slightly warm but that's all. The remote comes with a batttery. This thing is great fun!

  • Excellent for conservatory lighting. Recommened use of double-sided tape to ensure adhesion to plastic surfaces. Otherwise a great product

  • this product is very cheaply made and when you cut the strip the part that you cut does not work and when i brought this i had very poor customer service from the crawley store and i consider my self to be quite confident with technology as i have built my own pc and my own server do not buy

    Is the LED strip in this kit Common Anode or Common Cathode? I'm interested in eventually replacing the controller with a LightwaveRF controller which requires a Common Anode strip. Many thanks
