-- Street Glow PC-Neon Connector Kit
-- Price: ~ $19.99 USD
-- 8.16.2001
-- By: GideonX
-- Page: 1 2 3

   Over the past year and a half, there has been a huge following in the case modification scene.  From small mods to large mods, many cases have utilized one common piece of equipment, neon lights.

   With this in mind, the folks at Street Glow jumped on the idea of producing neon kits for the home PC.  Street Glow? Don't they make car neon accessories?  You got it, the same folks who first pioneered the idea of adding neon lights to automobiles back in 1991 are now introducing their line for the home PC.  The first product made available to the home user is the PC-Neon Connector Kit.

   What this unit essentially is, is a fan bus.  There are 4 sets (positive/negative) connectors on the black unit with one SPST (Single Pull, Single Throw) switch coming out of the other end.  The switch can turn on and off all the units plugged into this connector box.  You may plug any neon tube that has a 12V/Ground combination of wires.  You can also plug 12V fans into this thing, but we won't attempt that since it isn't part of the review.

   Included with each PC-Neon Connector Kit:

  • Connector Box
  • Y-Splitter Molex cable
  • Double Side Tape

   On the back of the connector box is where the molex connector should be placed.  You can use any of the connectors from your power supply, but if you are limited on connectors then use the provided Y-splitter cable.  That red cable is the wire that powers the unit through the use of the switch.  It measures in at about 15" long, not exactly as long as I would want.  This is the prototype version that we received.  Adam over Street Glow did mention that the newer models will be 25" in lenght.  Enough to string it across any case.  

   Since we will be installing it in a front plastic bezel the length is just adequate at 15".  The black unit itself measures in at 30mm X 45mm X 10mm.  With the included double sided tape, the unit can be placed just about anywhere the red wire will let you reach.

   The front of the unit is where the 4 pairs of connectors are located.  Below each connector are labels to specify whether the connector is for the positive or negative lead wire.  The connectors themselves use spring clips.  Pushing them down will open the hole enough for the wire to pass into.  The size of the push down clips are very small.  A little tight squeeze, but with some practice you shouldn't have a problem.
