I posted this in the Show us your game room thread and wanted to move it here so this discussion wouldn't clutter up their thread.
I've been thinking about starting a new thread on game room lightning, specifically RGB LED strips that come on a roll and has a controller. Prices, and quality seem to range a lot.
I am in the market for two 20 foot long strips of RGB LED's with a controller to light my game room. All in one kits appeal to me more then the hardcore DIY'ers shopping list but also want to avoid the places selling them to high end customers to light up their yacht's at a 10x increase in price. I just want a good well thought out system/kit because they are all most likely coming over from China and it would be nice to know which ones are studs and which ones are duds, and which ones to avoid. Christmas is coming up and I'd like to wow my family coming over.
I have heard from some members that have installed a similar kits that had dimming issues where the end of the strip was much dimmer then the start near the "beefy" power supply. They said forget about daisy chaining using that particular kit as the dimming would be even worse and I dont want that.
I'm not really looking for one that does "crazy light shows" I just one that can hold one color or cycle through the whole RGB spectrum at various speeds and what not using a controller. Similar to what I have seem used in pinball back boxes or speakers.
I had quite a few replies on that thread and wouldn't mind quoting them here to improve the thread if thats ok with you members.
