|-- Color and Conclusion
-- Page: 1
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.
