  • Remote fails after a few button presses

    Stuck the 5m strip to my son's bedroom's cabinet and all lights worked fine; remote changed the colours well ... for about a dozen times then it froze.

    Pressing any button on the remote failed after that. Swapped the battery in the remote for a known good one and it still didn't work. Tried unplugging the power and reapplying it. Still the remote didn't change the colour.

    I bought a similar product for half the price and it had the same problem - hence buying this one from Maplin figuring they would have tested their products much better than some online only retailer.

    Very disappointed.

  • Great lights

    I have a few of these sets of 5m LED lights and they give a great effect when used with a white background, it's a real shame that these are over £20 more expensive (at the reduced price of £39.99)

  • What a bad design

    Bought this... which has a mind of it's own. Switches itself on and off randomly. You keep it set on a colour, changes colouler on it's own. The software freezes up and needs to be switched off and on again to function again.

  • Bad experience

    Bought a set from the Carlisle store. Got them home and when plugged in, everything worked except when I pressed the "off" button on the remote the whole light set went red instead of turning off. Phoned the Carlisle store I bought them from. The assistant said they had sold lots of these without problem but it was to be expected that every now and then one would be faulty! I now have 70 mile round trip to return them back to the store or send the faulty set back to Head Office. As you can imagine I am not best pleased.
    I can't recommend this product

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • another simple but brilliant product at maplins works really well was concerned how bright it would be but can be altered and very bright indeed would of been a 5 star however only issue i found was the adhesive back doesnt hold very well suggest buying your own adhesive for it. i do strongly suggest this product for under cupboard lighting! needs a socket outlet or alternativly a 12vdc 2amp inline psu will work just as good! also if trying to fit it hidden cable with black end coming from controller needs to be showing as this is how the remote talks to the unit :-)

  • 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
