I was pleasantly surprised at the number of cables that Sunbeam included with this package.







Here we have cables that convert the 3 prong fan headers into plugs for molex and standard CCFL box ports.

This cable runs out the back of the case and plugs into your sound card for sound activation.  It's a Y adaptor so you can plug in your speakers and the Light Bus at the same time.  A cable to run to the motherboard's hard drive header is included as well.

Here is the front of the Light Bus.  There are four knobs that act like rheostats to adjust the amount of power and each knob is surrounded by four buttons that select the pattern that goes to each channel.  Pressing the left button causes the channel to remain constantly on, the bottom button causes the channel to activate with sound, the top button causes the channel to power on with hard drive activity, and the right button causes the channel to fade in and out.  In addition to this there are two buttons on the right side that activate a predefined sequence, and there is a knob to adjust the sensitivity to sound.  All 4 are completely independent of one another and can all be set to different voltages and programs.

The overall design is nice, but the buttons are kind of hard to hit and I had trouble with the knobs.  The knobs have no grip to them and sometimes hard to turn.  The one and two channel was easy to turn, but the third one sticks in certain places and the fourth one is very hard to turn at all times.  At one point I even had to break out a pair of pliers to turn the fourth channel.  The knobs need to be bigger, and have grooves on their sides.
