Still think the white in a RGB is too blue

Agreed.

John,
This kit was from Costco. I will dig up the exact call-out and specifications when I get home tonight. And with these you would need the four strips from the kit and more if the transformer can handle it. They are too weak for my tastes.

Martin,
I have on order a few optional strips to test this with warm-white, cool-white, ...etc. I think the issue is power and lumens per foot. I paid 20 dollars and did not expect much. Searching online and other forums, it seems its all down to LED type, spacing and power. The better you get, the more you spend. We should start a practical LED guide post and collet what we have individually tried and learned (failures also). Also we need to get rid of the common text descriptions as what passes as warm-white, and cool-white are as varied as the earth we live on.

Maybe we can get a vendor to send a complete sample set to someone who can test and report objectivly. I will see if MRH has anything on the go with anyone. Maybe they can pull the trigger and get something in the works.

Hi Brad, would be a great one, special topic 'bout LED lighting. Use this stuff for 6 years in the kitchens I build and there's only one real bright SMD. If you order take notice it is a 5050. The 60 LED / meter will provide 14,4W. Enough for layout lighting when 2 strips are used. Personaly I only use the warmwhite. With a depth of 70cm wich my modules are I use one in front one in the back and the RGB with 5050 SMD for light effects like day / night sunrise and so on in the middle. Friend of mine is working on a module for control based on Arduino and controls it by computer. After that it works as stand alone in a sequence..
