I tried plugging it into the monitor's USB port.

My complaint is with the adhesive that is supposed to hold the strip to the back of the monitor.

Having done so, my room became really dark, and staring the monitor was causing eye strain.

I wanted to avoid the glare from the bedroom window, and so I installed a screen. Having done so, my room became really dark, and staring the monitor was causing eye strain.

I did some research and I found this product. I considered this and the Cyborg amBX(tm) Gaming Lights for PC (not available on Amazon, just search on google for these).

I eventually decided to get these instead because they were cheap.

Now are these any good? Well, they are not going to completely get rid of eye strain, that's for sure, however, they do help. They are certainly not bad for the price, but I would have preferred them a little brighter.

Here are somethings you should know before buying these:

1. There is no way to turn these lights ON or OFF. They have to be manually unplugged from the USB

2. There is no way to alter the brightness. I wanted the lights to be a little brighter, but I couldn't find a way to do this. If I missed something, then kindly inform me by leaving a comment.

3. The strip has decent glue and it is possible to remove and attach it several times till you get the position just right.

4. Of course, there are no drivers or anything.

Overall, I am pleased with the product. However, I am going to give it 4 stars because I would have preferred them a little brighter. There is nothing wrong with the product as such, and I would recommend it.

Check out the pictures I am attaching. They give you an idea on how the setup looks.

I am not sure what I expected, but this lighting kit falls short for me.

It works in the sense that you plug it in and it creates a decently bright light, but it is not bright enough to achieve any reasonable results with my 24' HP LCD monitor, even after modifying contrast and brightness on the display.

More importantly, the reusable adhesive strip used to attach the kit failed a few days in and now I have find it behind my PC and and reattach it every two days.

Short: Not for me, by YMMV

This is a simple product at a reasonable price. It is a strip of small LED lights that plug into a USB port. In my case, it plugs into the USB port of my monitor, so it turns on when the monitor has power. (My Samsung turns off the USB when it goes to sleep.)

It creates a soft glow behind the monitor that reduces the contrast around the screen. It actually makes it possible for me to work longer with less fatigue.

I consider it to be a small investment for a very large value.

I bought these to light the back of an LCD TV I have on a adjustable wall mount (see customer attached images). They are light and not too bright, I bought 4 of them but only ended up useing 3. You can't really tell they are on during the day, but by dusk they produce the intended effect.

As far as installation, I have the section where the strip meets the USB cable supported with a small strip of duct tape to relieve some strain on the ahesive of the light strip itself. Some additional zip ties keep the cables routed to a Belkin USB 2.0 4-Port Ultra-Mini Hub. Hub is then connected to a USB port on the TV to power up and down with the TV. Doesn't look pretty on the back, but I'm not really looking at the back of my TV too much.

I purchased a pair of these to place on the back of my two monitors in an effort to ease eye fatigue from long coding sessions. The lighting itself is excellent, creating a soft white light reflecting off the wall that certainly helps with they eye strain. My issues are with the design of the kit itself. The adhesive seems to be holding well after weeks of use on both monitors, one with a matte finish and the other being very glossy. The problem is the adhesive near the end that has failed to hold up to the weight of the USB cable after the first few minutes of installation. I have been forced to place a bit of tape on both units to hold the end of the lighting strip down. Antec needs to address this issue in future versions of the product.

The second problem is with the length of the USB cable itself. On one monitor I have built-in USB ports and the cord is more than long enough. On the other monitor however, the cable is not long enough to reach a USB port and I had to use a USB extension cable in order to get it to length. It seems that Antec has designed this product solely for monitors with USB ports. The lack of an off switch is evidence of this. On my Dell UltraSharp, it is not problematic since the ports lose power after turning the monitor off and the light goes out accordingly. On my other monitor, the lights stay on when plugged into an always on port and have to be manually unplugged. I have instead had to run my second monitors cable to my UltraSharp in order to not have to plug and unplug constantly.

Overall, the lighting performance of this kit is more than adequate. However, Antec needs to redesign this kit to address a pair of glaring deficiencies in their design.
