Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice kit These kits have now come down in price, I bought one last week and I'm really pleased with it. It has a remote control and a great choice of colours and four patterns. The only slight downside is although it's self adhesive it doesn't stick very well, I had to use some PVA glue to keep it up, which is not really a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for conservatory lighting. Recommened use of double-sided tape to ensure adhesion to plastic surfaces. Otherwise a great product

Hi there can this product be extended ?....

Asked by: k40duf
Not with additional lighting, the controller and power supply are rated for the specifics of this unit so you would be unable to add additional light strips to the end. You would be able to cut the strip at the marked points and create break point extensions however, if a continuous strip is not required.

Hi, I have had these lights for a while now - over a year - every time I try to turn them on they only go into flashing mode then turn themselves off. is this a feature or do I need a new set?

Asked by: Damio
This sounds like a faulty item and would have to be replaced.
