Why on Earth would you purchase 120" of LED lightstrips for $80 (REFURBISHED!) when there are 196" sets all over Amazon for $13 (NEW). Oh, because you want to control it with your Alexa? Save some [redacted] for the rest of us Crusher.
Massively overpriced. I bought a set with two 5 meter, 300-LED-per-strip waterproof strips of RGB lights, plus power supply and Alexa-enabled controller for just over $30 on Amazon. About 3x the length for less than half the price. And when I had one bad LED on one of the strips, the company shipped a whole new strip. I already own a Hue hub, and I still wouldn’t touch this deal.
As somebody who owns one of these strips, I want to iterate that it’s not worth 80 dollars. Sure, there’s lots of cool features that come bundled in with it that aren’t typically available with other light strips, but a lot of times, you can find these on sale for about 40-50 bucks, which is a bit more reasonable (all things considered).
Also, I’m not sure why anybody would pay 80 dollars for a refurbished product, when you can get a brand new one on Amazon right now for 70. EDIT: nevermind, I see that it also comes with the extension. Still not worth it imo.
I concur. I also have this, but fortunately it was gifted to me. Yes, the color depth and features are great, and this feels like a premium product. But it still is way too overpriced.
The one niche use that may be worth the $80: ambient TV back-lighting. You can install this behind an HDTV mount, and Philips has a feature that allows you to link the lights to your TV, and the lights will automatically adjust based on the content of the screen. It’s a cool effect when set up properly.
