One last question Guibs: does the Antec package or manual says if the led lights temperature are 6500k or the CRI (80 OR 82 OR 92).
This is what I bought: http://www.amazon.com/Antec-HDTV-51-1-Inch-BIAS-LIGHTING/dp/B007TG5EG8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361897721&sr=8-1&keywords=antec+bias+lighting
I'm only using one. The strip is pretty long, right now I do not have mine glued to the TV. I have a support for an HDTV in the back that you don'T see but I am not using it since I like the look with the stand and I can get the TV to be a little bit closer to me (about 1 foot closer).
I have the LED Biais lighting "attached" to the TV support. Since it's too long (I have a 46" TV after all), I have the strip to fold and go down along the side of the TV stand. I do not know why the light make it look like I have to sets (specifically the upper middle part of the TV). When actually watching, it's not as noticeable than it is on the picture so it doesn't botter me. Maybe if I was to place it differently I'd have different result. I'll try to remember and take a picture of how I'm attaching it tonight to give you an idea.
What I really like about this kit is that it's powered by USB. I just connect it to my TV and it automatically power on and off with the TV. It usually take a few seconds for the light to power on once the TV is on (which is expected, since sony open the TV first before loading the OS of the TV, I'm guessing the USB port only get activated once the OS is loaded). Sames goes when I close the TV, the LED stays on for a few more seconds, which I kind of like actually.
Not disapointed with the purcahase and it was cheap enough. I paid a little more since I live in Canada but still, with shipping and taxes, it was around 40$.
