I got these lights to fit in a specific place in a wall unit. They were packed in a plain cardboard box with the LED strip on a reel, the adhesive backing on the strip seems good and they have not started to peel off yet. The connection between the control box cable and the LED strip and between the plug from the mains and the control box are both good and tight. The lights can also be cut every 3 LEDs if the strip is too long and this is easily done with a normal pair of scissors.
The remote controller feels solid and allows the lights to be turned on or off, change the colours to static versions of each colour, dim or brighten them or to have them fading and chasing. There is also the added feature of an on/off switch in the mains cable. The kit also contains extra connectors so you can extend the length by adding another strip to it.
