    Just a little info - according to Ikea in Bristol they have discontinued this line so if you want some get them quick while they are in stock

    Yeah get some, at first i did'nt think it enhanced viewing. Then i was playing xbox with some friends and did'nt realise they where on and switched them off, everyone wondered what had happened.

    Good stuff these lights :thumbsup:

    Blimey, it says "new" on the website! Just proves things are obsolete these days before they hit the shelves :rotfl:
    I agree RHCP, a big improvement and significant 'cool' factor for very little outlay. Snap them up while they're still available!

    Depending on what colour you go for. I went with the white, which is very white compared to anything the ambilight produces, but it's not too bright so I think it enhances viewing. Also, completely silent whereas ambilight is quite noisy depending on which colour it's producing. Obviously, ambilight is dynamic as well.

    How do you power it? Does it connect to the mains or to your light switch somehow?

    In the box you get 4 led strips along with 4 wires (one for each strip) which plug into a small connection box which in turn is on a bog standard mains wire with an inline switch along with a normal plug. Nothing to do but put them together..

    Try this link

    http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stor...Id=10101&storeId=7&langId=-20&productId=11158

    They are around a foot in length, 1/2 inch wide and probably less than 1/4 inch thick. Comes with double sided tape and I've just stuck 2 strips either side of the wall bracket. They don't produce any heat though, so they would go on the back of the panel or the wall no prob. Cables plenty long enough for a decent run as well.

    If anyone is interested although I haven't got the Ikea lights mentioned in this thread I do have the ones that w3dal mentioned on the get your plasma out for the lads thread.
    They come from Habitat in 3 colours (blue/red/white) for £20, I chose the white.....see attached photos, sorry about the quality.....they do not do the lights or the screen image for that matter any justice.
    Really do improve the perception of contrast IMO they work really well & do not get hot even after being on all evening.

    Also Dozer, which ones are the same as the ikea ones in the website you posted? I am thinking about going for the white ones - should I be considering the:

    SD Super-thin LED Ribbon Strip - White

    It says the dont go over 50 degrees Celsius - surely thats far too hot?!

    What about these?

    http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/product_...d=798&osCsid=64f9fbb5668f21df8779b262bba6193c

    Or should I just try to source the Ikea ones?

    I am actually not that keen on the green ones and tend to just have the blue ones behind the speakers on all the time.

    They look really good with the projector screen down :smashin:

    Must admit the blue ones look really cool.............might have to invest in those as well :(
    Not sure how good they will look in my room though, as the room is fairly neutral. Thats why the missus prefered the white ones I recall.
