Some of the other ACL members have been buying cheap 12V RGB 5 metre strip kits on eBay. They seem to end up at the $15 - $20 mark most of the time. Here's what you get (after waiting 2-3 weeks) in the package: The strip seems to be a little thinner (more fragile?) than the Ray Wu version I got without controllers a while ago. Overall the quality looks not too bad, although the insulation under the backing tape seems quite thin. I don't think I'd use this for a commercial job, but for hobby use it's probably just fine. There are 30 RGB LEDs per metre (150 total) and you can cut it every 100mm. It doesn't come with a power supply, but you can hook it up to a 12V source via the 2.5mm (?) DC connector. I haven't measured the actual current draw yet as I only had a 1 Amp PSU handy when I gave it a quick test earlier today. EDIT: Oh, this particular kit was from eBay seller e-whsle. I have another similar one to come from eBay seller pop1318 so will post about that one once it arrives.
