Pros Nice Clean, Bright, White Light. Good price if on sale. Cables were long enough to have completely hidden in my FULL TOWER case!
Cons Velcro stickers for tubes don't stick very well, had to use my own supply of 3M double sided tape to get a good grip.
Cables could be sleeved which I had to do myself but not taking any points away for this since it was clear they weren't when purchasing.
Summary I was able to install this into a Phanteks Enthoo Pro with everything but the cables coming from the on/off bracket switch completely hidden so I sleeved them far enough to get behind the MB tray. This is a Full Tower case! So not sure what some are complaining about the length of the cables for unless poor planning. Lights up the whole case beautifully even with the PSU shroud removed and doesn't interfere with removing the side panel or other components.
I ended up using some 3M double sided tape instead of the included velcro stickers for the tubes as the velcro wasn't sticking very well. The velcro stickers do work fine for the converter though. Must be a minimum surface area thing...
Summary Not much to say about these really. They're great lighting for your PC case, or they can also be used for backlighting for monitors / bookshelves, you name it. Low power consumption, great light output. I've never have a stick burn out on me in my 6+ years of purchasing Logisys Cold Cathodes, so they really do last!
Cons Inverter, which is taking some place Non-sleeved wires :(
Summary I bought a kit to light my case guts and it worked great. It's also very inexpensive so it's a big bonusHowever, I wish the inverter box isn't that obstructive and wires should be easier to be disassembled for sleeving but beside them, it's fine.
Summary These cathodes are quite bright and with both of them put in the right place should have no problem keeping a case nice and bright. The cables on them are a little short, but can easily be extended with minimal soldering skills (which will void the warranty).
Cons Runs a tiny bit warm, but I guess that's how the light is made.
Summary This is a very good buy. I was initially going to install it into my system but in the end gave up. I have witnessed the light it produces though and it's a very white light, slight tint of purple. It's very bright as well and 2 of these will light your windowed case fairly well..
