UCL lighting on eBay
We just remodeled our kitchen and I had some wiring put in for LV UCL. The lighting would be on UCL and also for accent lighting on the molding of the top cabinets. I'm starting to do some research for LED lighting strips and I'm amazed at the range in prices!
1. It looks like there are a bunch of sellers on eBay that sell reels for as little as $1/ft. It looks like they are available as 3528/5050s sMD, 300/600 LEDs per 5M, about 2000 lumens per reel etc. So the specs seem the same or very similar to much more expensive strip lighting such as elementalled.com? What's the catch? Anything to watch out for?
2. Regardless of whether I go eBay or not, does anyone have any pro/cons on any of the LED specs? Should I go with 3528 vs. 5050s? Doesn't seem like I need waterproofing. 300 vs 600?
3. Any issues with the backing? Some sellers seem to specifically point out that they use 3M backed adhesive.
Thanks for your help.
