Does bias lighting make a big difference in picture quality? I have never used it before?
Most brands of bias lights from all the major companies (Antec, Vlasky, etc.) are unfortunately almost always too "cool"/"blue". Even when they claim
to be ~6500K (which is what you want), they are usually always cooler. Also, it doesn't help that the "silicone" coating on some of those light strips is of a bluish tint.
This is one of the main reasons that I now recommend the ones from www.biaslighting.com
>> The MediaLight 6500K Bias Lighting System
Correlated Colour Temperature (CCT)
- Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 90+ (actually ~94)
- Plug into any USB port (5V) but also include an AC Adapter
- Attach with peel and stick 3M adhesive (also include wire routing clips)
- Are fully dimmable and even come with a small RF remote
- Have a 5 Year Limited Warranty
- And they come highly recommended by people in the industry
- You can choose between a single 140cm strip, ideal for TV's on stands, or twin 61cm strips, ideal for wall mounting

, I do not work for this company or have any affiliations with them whatsoever. Nor am I being paid to recommend their lights (I wish
would be nice). However, I have had conversations with the Director of MediaLight (Jason Rosenfeld).
