And on both TVs I fitted in the evening and they'd fallen off by the next day.
The unit remembers the pattern/colour/brightness when turned off, and these can be altered with the very tiny remote control. This has 3 buttons which can be a little confusing when first setting it up (although once you find a suitable one, you normally leave it). The strip has decent glue on the back that sticks securely to the back of your TV, but it's worth using a bit of windex or detergent on a cloth to remove any grease before fitting. I cut my strip in two (easily done, you can see where to do this) to fit on either side of the TV (the strip was plenty big enough for my 48" TV) but it did require a length of wire the length of the TV (old USB cable) to be soldered between one end of each strip so that I could place them on either side. This was an easy job, but does require very basic soldering skills. I am unsure if these connected wires can be bought separately (there are connectors at each end of the strip for extending, and extending pins are included) but they would probably prove far less cost effective than a bit of solder and an old USB cable!
Worth the effort though, cause it looks great when on and does prevent eye strain at night.
Nice gimmick which adds a bit of depth to the tv corner but it's a shame it falls off on a regular basis. It's now covered in duct tape and sellotape in the hope it'll stay attached.
Would I buy it again? Probably not. It's a fun gimmick but not the one if you're looking to get the effect of a back-lit TV. If you are I'd track down something of better quality.
There are little double ended 4 pin connectors that connect the power lead to the LED strip. You put one end in the strip, and join the other to the power lead. Hey presto, the strip should light up. If it doesn't you press and hold the speed button on the power lead for 3 seconds, and that'll be it. It took about 5 mins to set up. The strip has adhesive to hold it in place and this sticks on to the tv quite well once the backing paper is removed. Looks lovely.
There are different light modes and colours, or you can choose a mode that alternates through them all or at different speeds.
Gives a lovely glow and backlight. Great when the main light is off.
The strip does not stick to the back of the TV and kept falling off, I bought adhesive strip to re-stick.
Once you get over it falling off and can only run a straight line, it actually puts out a nice light with various modes and colours. Gives a good effect but you need to mount it somewhere where you can see the glow on the wall but not see the strip itself. Along the back of a glass TV base looks awful and the LEDs are more visible than the glow.
