OverRuled said: I have used this but not exactly the same (without the remote). Mine is intalled under the upper cabinets around the kitchen. It looks awesome and bright whenever I turn it on. This is what I plan on doing in my kitchen, I'm in the middle of the remodel now. Which ones did you buy, link?
dbphillips said: So, does anyone know if these connectors are compatible? The original seller doesn't seem to have a full product line to allow creating a light free length to cross basis in kitchen cabinets, etc.

I bought mine about 2 years ago from a listing in aliexpress and it looks every similar. By the way, the sticky tape at the back was not strong enough to hold the strip so I reinforced with few extra pieces of strong clear tapes along the way. An example to find one can be from this link: http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=12v+5050+led+strips+with+power with all kinds of options...
scrouds said: Anyone use these? All the Amazon reviews are fake I have this same thing purchased from eBay from china, not Amazon. Works as advertised, fun little light string. I have them above my entertainment center for some ambient lighting.
Prngr44 said: How many of these things can you string together off a single power module?
Typically one. Buy you can get higher wattage power modules of course. There's a limit to how many strands you can connect too - usually 2-3 end-to-end. You just connect your power in the middle of course. Put too many and you can overheat things and also the furthest LEDs will be noticeably dimmer.
Basically this is great if you want one strand to add some funky lighting. Quality is going to be...mediocre based on my experience with a few similar sets. The waterproof coating SMELLS for a while until the chemicals evaporate out. I wouldn't use these for anything or anywhere important. My 2c
Can't beat the price though. I might pick up a few just because.
I have these strips all over my house in both white and RGB. I typically just buy from the cheapest reseller and they are all the same thing. The connectors do work with these and definitely make life easier. However in an environment where it needs to be waterproof I always solder, caulk, and heat shrink. Mine tend to be on for 4-5 hours per day and I have some that have been in use for three years... no issues as of yet.
But shipping should take longer. I'm seeing $21.16 and maybe a $2 additional discount if you sell your soul ( spam mail etc ). And a month for shipping ish Yes ? You are right. RGB pumps it up to $21.16.
Thanks a bunch for the comments and suggestions. I was thinking about using it for above cabinet lighting in the kitchen but I have a LOT of cabinets so I think I'll give that 10M set from eBay a whirl.
I picked up one of each, and they both arrived today. I don't know if it was a fluke, but the big difference is that the non-waterproof only has 150 LEDs on it vs. 300 on the waterproof, and I perceive a corresponding difference in brightness. The same LED module appears to be used on both--at least in terms of LED width and height, because it's hard to measure thickness given the plastic coating on the waterproof version. The maylar bags that both strips came in were labeled 1.5watts/foot. However, the power supply on the waterproof version is labeled 12V/5A vs. 12V/4A on the non-waterproof. Remote was non-functional on the non-waterproof version, so I definitely think it's going back.
Mine arrived -- all in good order. Two observations: 1: The "white" light is not really white. It's greenish, and I can't seem to find a setting for warm white light. Any suggestions?
2) The remote is infrared, not RF, so there must be line-of-sight access between the remote and the receiver. If either the receiver or remote goes bad or gets lost, I don't think it's possible to use the light strip?
