LED Cabinet Striplight Kit w/Remote Control Red / Green / Blue
Affected by LG tv remote
I agree with other reviews that these are great value for money and easy to install, unfortunately after installation I thought they had developed a fault as the lights would change colour and switch on/off randomly (or so I thought)...turns out that the remote control for our LG tv also operates the lights with different buttons applying different effects.
I now will be replacing the controller unit with a wireless one purchased elsewhere.
Easy to install
Very reasonably priced for 5metres
No white light option
Control unit is infra red and needs to be placed somewhere with line of sight with the remote control.
Control unit is also operated by our LG tv remote

Strip (light) Show
Easy to install and look great....Remote needs a holder and there should be a white light option.....apart from that ....Great value, looks good, bright... and the wife is happy...

Good feature light solution
I tried this as a solution to a feature lighting issue I had in a drop down MF ceiling and it worked a treat, the client is especially happy with the remote function to change the lighting effects, hope it has longevity!

Great value for money
These LED lights from Screwfix are really good value. Couldn't find any other colour changing ones for close to the price - and these are 5m long.
The strip can be cut, although the cut lines are not clearly marked for a novice. I had to hunt youtube to have any confidence where I should cut them. I cut through the solder joint (which occurs at regular intervals) to the length I needed and they are working great. Most strips online had clearly marked scissor cut lines. I believe I could use the remainder off-cut if I brought another transformer and control - however these seem to be almost as much as another 5m set from Screwfix!
The colour options are good, although there isn't a nice white light option. However, the yellows give a natural light colour.
Overall - great fun & good quality light - all my kids now want one in their bedrooms!
