Installation is very easy, takes about 2 steps to get everything set. Plug the Glowire into the driver and connect the molex. Turn the driver on and your all set. For our demonstration, we're going to be slappig it into a regular box and our Lan Box.
Here's a plain jane box we had around, no window kits at all. So to spruce things up a bit, we added the Glowire around the front.
The picture is kind of dark, but that's the best way to do it to show off the lighting on this mod. To attach the wire, you can use tape, blue poster sticky gunk thing, etc. The wires are very versatile and pliable. They curve and bend like no neon we've seen before.
Nice, the light brings out the best in that window kit on our LAN Box. You can mix and match different colors to find the right combination. Crazy PC carries red, blue, aqua, and purple. Enough colors to get things going on your box.
One thing I did notice is that the wire connecting the Glowire to the driver gets a little hot to the touch. For all you temperature freaks out there, this may be something to look out for. Normal neon tubes give off virtually no heat, this unit may not be what you are looking for if temperatures are a major factor. Then again, it may not be enough to cause any type of concern in most cases.
There is also a high pitch whining that comes from the driver. I may have received a bum driver, but I did notice the high pitch noise. Overall, the product delivers. A simple and easy to use neon alternative.
Thanks to Nick at Crazy PC for sending us a fun new item to play with. Give them a look over and find the right color for yourself.
