Cheaper on amazon with a much better controller. No power supply, but those are cheap. Much better deal that way.

@illiteratebeef: but you still pay shipping at amazon.

This is an odd set of lights, led strips normally have 300 led's I'd be wary of this one.
And if you don't have a spare 12v wall wart at home...and you want the 44 key remote This is $15.78

hmmm, I have a beem across my back porch where we sometimes host shindigs. Curious if this would give the cool "ambient party light" effect I'm imagining in my head.

Controller on amazon is much better, but these include the power adapter, If you add that on amazon the price bumps to $30 and $4 shipping without a filler. This is a good deal.

I got a pair of 5050 type 300 count LED strip with the better 44-key remote for a lot cheaper on Ebay, something like $16 each with true free shipping. No power supply but I already had a 12v wall wart one laying around that worked so no big deal.

Edit: I forgot to say mine is also waterproof, which is nice just in case water get on them. And I suggest getting the better 5050 as all 3 colors are one LED instead of 3 separate ones on the 3528 units. The 5050 are brighter with the colors blending better.

johnt: I put the amazon one's under our upper kitchen cabinets and it made a really nice effect. I also put a stained glass picture on our wall and cut a hole in the wall and used these for edge lighting and they worked great. I used the 5050 LEDs to allow color changes.

@johnt007871: There are tons of videos on YouTube showing these kinds of LED strips but I suspect the lights will give you the effect you are looking.

@rasnaig:
All your "pros" about the 5050 lights are correct, but there is one thing the 3528 version is good at..."jumping". Since there are 3 separate lights for each color, they look like they "chase" better since they are actually switching LEDs.

@jzmacdaddy: @jzmacdaddy: For something like that, I'll go with computer controled strips. Their effects are amazing though the products are still emerging and a bit cutting edge. I am waiting a little longer for the technology to mature some more before jumping headfirst into it. Here is one of the many projects out there https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/740956622/blinkytape-the-led-strip-reinvented . BTW, I am not a pro in LEDS though I am an electrical engineer and I do find these kinds of stuff fascinating. I am doing basic lighting in the kitchen and hallways right now but would like to get into the fancy stuff later, hopefully soon.
