I was very pleasantly surprised with how well it lights up the back of my TV. Really adds to the experience. Especially when playing video games!
Very awesome, it's ambient brightness is amazing, really lights up mood of whatever you enjoy viewing, I have this sync with the dream view product and it takes viewing too a whole other level, just amazing...
Used the RGBIC neon tv backlight to light up the back of 48" tv. The line is longer (better suited for 55"TVs ) so I had to wrap the excess portion around again, makes no difference in the light reflection to do so, and turned out very nice and bright. These lights are very smooth, you won't see the spots like with led strip lights. These rope lights can be customized to reflect different colors and can sync with your devices to play with music and be controlled with your voice. All extra cool stuff... I recommend.
So I do not use these how they are expected to be (attached to the back of the TV), I use these for a variety of things. I also love the DYI programming feature as the out of the box styles are okay to bad. But I programmed several cool flowing rainbow ones or even some good Halloween flows.
* I use them to decorate and light up my office/gaming area. It really helps with my ADD to have something pretty to stare at while the wheels in my brain grind on a work task. Especially the flowing rainbow colors I find calming and hypnotizing.
* I use them to light up my backyard during bonfires. Helps add some great colors to my backyard, especially with a fence or a tree to bounce the colors off of.
* I definitely dont think Govee expected this, but I also use them for camping. I tent camp at RV sites at state parks, so I still have access to electricity. And then I'll use them to light up my shelters or the campsite. Mix a few glasses of wine, a good bonfire, and these lights can be a super relaxing evening.
For the price tag of between 40-60(depending on sales), these items are amazing. I think they are a great value for that price. They brighten up anywhere I use/bring them. The colors are vibrant, and the DYI functions are cool (if a bit obtuse to figure out).
I do wish the DYI had a bit more functionality with dimming or brightness levels, along with syncing multiple of these ropes to transfer the colors from one to another.
BUT, I highly recommend them. I'm not exactly gently on alot of my gear, but so far everything has held up really well.
Govee, I'm really hoping you'll make a longer version and one more designed for outdoors (rain proofing the power controls, having a 180% arch design rather then the current 90% design, and add attachment points for hanging or adjusting hanging on tree's/fences/walls ect ect).
