I know it's in the past so not a helpful comment, but I'm sure I spent less than this for my gen 2 strips. Yep just checked on Amazon, I paid £42 for the 2m strip and £13 for a 1m extension. I do want another but I'll be waiting to get a gen 2 at a similar price.
Gen 1 lightstrip is 120 lumens vs 1600 lumens in Gen 2. Also can't do white.
Cold from me I'm afraid, I'd want this to be under £50 before it was of interest personally.
I thought this was expensive?

How much do they usually sell for
£91 for a 2 metre strip
This is seriously expensive! Hope you didn't pay this OP. Normal price on Amazon is £65 for one strip but you get get them on offer from time to time even cheaper. Bridges too.

Freezing. Gen 2 is cheaper.

To be fair it's 2 x 2m strips. But still expensive imo.
How much is Xiaomi's equivalent product? I know I've just got 2 Yeelight rgb colour LED Bulbs for about 23 delivered total
from China
It's way easier to modify the GEN 1 strips than the GEN 2. All other 4 channel 5050 SMD strips (from eBay etc.) can be soldered into the GEN 1 easily, not so easy to do with GEN 2 as they changed the format to 5 channels... That said, this still is expensive and would love for it to be cheaper considering I payed £45 a unit.
I got the same back in January for about £30. Not sure why anyone would pay more than that for gen1. (it is not extendable and produces white from RGB)
