Holy crap, I paid $10.99 for one of these on Amazon thinking I got a steal - some Dollarama flipper got me good.

I ended up returning it because while the light worked well, the default "on" state when powered on is to go the coolest, almost blue light - there's no memory or "last colour temp state" to set it to, so if I wanted a warm glow I'd have to use the remote every single time. That in itself was enough to return.

Nah. It doesn't worth 4 bucks. The remote control barely work, the 2 sided tape also doesn't stick to clean and flat surfaces such as the back of my TV.... u can pay the same for RGB ones with better quality on Internet.

Did you plug it into the TV usb port? I have mine plugged into a powerbar so it has power constantly, and it has a memory/last state when it turns on. Some TV usb ports are not always on if the TV is off.

Edit: nm, just reread it and the one you got may not have been identical to this unit.

At $4 a pop they get the job done. Previous posts on these leds suggest that one should buy the red double sided tape for it to adhere properly.

Someone mentioned for anything 55"(TV) and over its best to get 2 lights. But be creative, they're plugged in via usb and they work fine for me.
