RGB Lighting for the Entire Gaming Area: evnbetter’s Lighting Solutions Tested

Control of the controller

The external control unit #1 with four switches allows an uncomplicated control of all lighting effects. This makes it easy to switch between 15 lighting modes and their five speed levels. The five brightness levels of the LEDs as well as the 12 colour modes can also be switched through via separate push-buttons. It is even possible to directly control the entire setup via compatible mainboards with 5VDG RGB connector (xx_x) and synchronize the entire setup inside as well as outside the PC.
evnbetter has additionally integrated a HighSensitivity microphone into the controller, which picks up ambient noise and converts music into light effects, for example.

Since the entire lighting system is supplied by a SATA power connector, a PC is absolutely necessary. For console or notebook players or anyone who wants to have an area far away from a computer shine in RGB colours, a controller with e.g. USB power supply would be more helpful. Hopefully evnbetter will launch such a version of their #1 LightControl in the future. I would wish for it anyway.

RGB LED Strip – Premium indoor and outdoor lighting

evnbetter currently offers three different RGB strips:

The xcd 1 baseline RGB strips are mainly intended for the interior of a PC case. Equipped with individually addressable LEDs, the RGB strips are particularly flexible and feature magnets for easy attachment to metallic substrates. Self-adhesive metal plates are included to attach the strips to non-metallic surfaces.

With the xcd 2 Slimline, evnbetter creates point-free lighting thanks to its own evnLight technology and thus ensures a homogeneous distribution of light in the room. This means that the flexible RGB strips, which are only 6 mm wide, no longer have to be hidden and can even be used as a decorative element, e.g. on a wall. This allows you to give your creativity free rein and create chic lighting designs with glare-free effects.

The highlight of the RGB lighting series are the almost 10 mm wide xcd 3 Wideline Strips. Like the xcd 2 Slimlines, they also offer homogeneous light distribution for glare-free effects. They are also ideal for decorating walls or furniture, such as a gaming table.

The Slimline and Wideline LED strips are attached with aluminium clips. These can be glued or screwed to the desired location.
