The digitally addressable RGB LED strips provide a pleasant light overall. The adjustment possibilities for the brightness of the LEDs and the speed of the effects are more than sufficient. Whether breathing, meteorite or pulse effect, each mode brings its own mood into the gaming area. The music mode is very funny, but can get a little annoying when gambling in heated battles.
If you want more than the 15 integrated lighting effects, you can also control the whole system via the mainboard, as long as it has a 3-pin RGB connector (xx_x). But I was very happy with the amount of settings, I wouldn’t have needed more.
The right thing for everyone
evnbetter offers three starter sets for beginners: One set for each LED strip variant, with prices ranging from 30 to 46 EUR. These include the #1 LightControl and two DRGB strips with a length of 45 cm.
If you want to extend your lighting setup, you can choose between further packs with RGB strips in different lengths:
|#1 LightControl||Baseline, Slimline, Wideline|
|xcd 1 Baseline||30 cm, 45 cm, 60 cm|
|xcd 2 Slimline||30 cm, 45 cm, 60 cm, 180 cm|
|xcd 3 Wideline||30 cm, 45 cm, 60 cm, 180 cm|
I was convinced by evnbetter’s lighting system with the #1 LightControl and the LED strips xcd 1 Baseline, xcd 2 Slimline and xcd 3 Wideline.
In combination with the controller, the RGB strips deliver atmospheric effects inside and outside the housing. I think it’s particularly good that the control unit is an external device. So you can quickly select a different lighting mode or simply set a different color without annoying software.
For fans of RGB lighting, it’s a must.
