TaoTronics LED 5050 RGB Light Strip Review (TT-SL007)

Bright and cool looking; lots of colors to choose from and decent animations. Amazon Affiliate Product Link:  remote has 20 preset solid colors, but these lights can display almost any color in the RGB color space by creating custom colors that you can save. There’s over 90,000 different colors to choose from.These light are waterproof and can be used outdoors. However, it cannot be immersed in water (like a fountain or pond) and the electrical components should be kept in a dry location. The waterproof covering has a strong plastic vinyl smell, but that dissipates over time. Since this uses an infrared sensor, you need to have a clear line of sight from the remote to the receiver, so placement is also something to consider. At 16 and a half feet, it’s not very long, but you can chain multiple units together according to the instructions. If you need a shorter length or non-continuous length, the strip can be cut and reassembled using jumpers.There are brightness controls for the 20 preset colors with 8 levels of brightness. Then there are 6 custom color buttons labeled DIY1 through 6 where you can select from any of the 90k plus colors by setting their RGB values (45 intervals per color). Once you get the color you want, click the same DIY button and it will be saved to the remote for you to use later. Note that for a custom color you cannot change its brightness using the brightness buttons.There are also several animation options. Jump3 will cycle through the 3 RGB colors red green and blue. Jump 7 adds 4 more colors to that mix. The fade buttons do the same thing but with smoother transitions (fade in and out) and you can modify the speed of any animation using the quick and slow buttons. The play/pause button enables you to pause any animation at any time. The flash button is a white strobe light and oddly, the Auto button is the same as Jump3. You cannot change the brightness of the animations.Make sure you have the lights strung out completely and not coiled up, otherwise they could run hot. I found that when properly installed, they remain cool during operation even after long periods of time. In general, these lights are bright, cool looking, and easy to install. The adhesive on this model seems stronger and longer lasting than on previous versions but we’ll see how long it lasts.Amazon Affiliate Product Link:
