Please note you must purchase other items to make the lights work (that's the only reason I gave it 4 stars). So it took me a while before I can get them to work. They are waterproof, you can stick them to various items and you can cut them to size you want. A very versatile product plus you get 12 feet so also very cost-effective.

woah baby these are bright!!
By Megan Johnson
First let me say you will either need to hard wire these into a power source or buy one, they are like 5 bucks.
Anyways!!! These bad boys are BRIGHT! Stretched out they light up my entire livingroom and dining room and then some!!! These also work well with the remote controls that turn them up or down for like a kids room or for watching movies.
I personally put them in my sons room, since we found a celing fan we love for in there that doesnt have a light =(
These absolutely do the trick! They work great in the mornings for playtime, at night for a night light, they dont get hot and stick well to the wall.
My husband is already got the wheels turning for all the things he can use these for! They have 2 sides that you can power, so if you need to cut them in half, that works great too!!
** i received these at a discounted price to give my honest opinion and review **

A learning experience for me - Wondering if there are quality control issues.
By John Ripley
There are wire leads soldered on each end. Nice. Except....
I had attached a DC power adapter plug (the kind where you insert the wire and screw down the terminal) and was mounting these to a railing outside. I started the tape down on one end and when I got to the enter end the positive power lead had broken off the strip. Because it would have ruined the tape backing to pull the entire strip off the railing I had to do my repair job outside. I had to cut off some of the LEDs and solder tap new wires onto the end.
On the 2nd set I had purchased I notice two issues. First, there's at least one led that seems to be VERY dim - not sure what that's about but it's not a deal breaker. I had tested the entire strip while it was still on the reel. But during deployment (removing the tape as I'm putting it up on the railing) I noticed that the last 5 feet of the strip kept flickering off. Looking closely to where it was going on and off, I noticed what looked like a damaged area. So I had to cut a segment out and splice it together. Not a terribly big deal but it did shorten the run a bit and was a bit annoying.
This is my first led strip project so maybe these types of things are normal. I'm not sure.
