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.
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.
-Double side tape
-6 decently bright LED's nicely spaced.
-USB plug and play NO drivers needed!
-Can be plugged into a monitor with USB capabilities for power.
-no on/off controls.
-some may say to dark/bright no way to adjust brightness.
-They stay on if you have them plugged into your PC's USB even with the PC powered (due to the constant power being supplied to a MOB by the PSU).
A little Tip. For those who had not noticed like i did, there is a protective thin plastic strip that covers the entire LED strip. it is thin like cellophane. Once removed the lights seem to be exceptionally brighter and clearer just a little FYI if you guys hadn't noticed.
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.
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.Read more ›
