I purchased this product expecting it to work like any other led strip that you could get for 40 bucks, and that’s what I received. The first thing I was really confused about was the shipping, I ordered this on June 30th or something like that and it said I would receive it between august ad September. It arrived today ( July 9th) which is really weird. Second, you should probably plan out where you are going to put these lights and be positive you are going to stick with that place because I accidentally put one strip on the wrong side or my wall and while I was peeling it off, the adhesive pulled off some paint (in the pictures). I think the instructions should be clearer for people who have never used led lights before like myself I probably spent about an hour or two setting it up. I’m not sure if it plays music or whatever because I haven’t set it up on my phone but if you can be bothered doing that, go ahead. Adhesive is great but like I said be careful where you decide to put it because there’s no going back. the brightness is pretty good, the amount of modes aren’t that many as I’ve seen for other led remotes. Another thing you might want to consider is the connector/adapter is a bit weak and will fall off if you knock something or slightly touch it, I would recommend using some tape like I have. Your lights might also duck on and off because the adapter is really fragile. Do I think it’s worth it for the money, no. You’re better off spending an extra couple of dollars for something better quality but if you want to just put it on a desk or behind a tv go for it but I wouldn’t buy it for a ceiling or something like that. Hope this helped.
