After I cut the Light Strip to length and and installed it in the fan, I powered it up and was very happy with the color.  I took the picture in a pretty dark room to see what the full effect was going to be and it turned out nicely.  Having a lighted fan as a blowhole or mounted in a window would could be a great look, especially if it matches up to your CCFL's or however you light your case.

Time for some comparisons to BeingSeen's FlatLite. Both products are blue so this should be pretty interesting.

Well this comparison was put together it was quitea shock.  BeingSeen's product is several times brighter than EL Custom Shop's Light Strip. BeingSeen's blue Flat Lite takes on an aqua blue-green and when compared to the very blue Light Strip there is no competition if a solid rich color is what you are looking for.  As far as the width of the light stripe, both brands are just a hair over a 1/4" wide with the total width of the laminate being just over a 1/2".  Additionally, EL Custom Shop also offers a larger inverter that increases the brightness of Light Strip by %30, and is available here.

Thanks to Michael Elansky from EL Custom Shop for sending us a sample of their Light Strip and providing a lot of support and an education in EL Tape. Its nice to see several companies competing in the EL business with a focus on computer modding and great customer service.  I hope this second review of EL products has helped expand your understanding and triggered your creativity.



Pros:

  • Very quiet inverter
  • Light Strip doesn't get warm
  • Consistent color options instead of just EL phosphorous white
  • Solid easy to use connectors
  • Comes with Self-Adhesive strip


Cons:

  • Price may be a bit high
