Hi, I'm wanting to add an LED strip with different colours behind my desk.
Any recommendations? I only need 1m. Thanks.

The LEDBERG from Ikea



2nd that also, mine been going strong 5-6 years now maybe.
3rd that! Stay away from those cheap Chinese ones mine didn’t last long. Also apparently the Ledberg are getting a driver for their smart light range
I got mine from amazon
Aura glow ones are a good cheap led strip. Recommend buying some velcro squares too the stick on the back of any strips including Philips hue are cack. The velcro strips are perfect and enable you to take them off without worrying you won't be able to stick them again afterwards.

Sorry - just to add, the auraglow appears to be for the back of tv's, but I want one for my desk.
Auraglow strip - I used these with my desk. There isn't a difference between the strips. Just place them wherever you like. So long as you get ones long enough etc. 100cm is the longest they do

Velcro patches - these have been a god send for me. Use them for all sorts. But they look really well for the strips. Just cut them in half horizontally.

Thanks. There's no power button on them though, so how do you turn them off when you've finished at your desk?
They have a remote control built into the end of them. One side has the USB and the other side has a few buttons for power and changing colour/speed.

That's right. If I remember right their is about 3 of them. One for power. The others pet you cycle between colour and wether or not you want them flashing or not. They are good quality for the cost.

Although I have ordered from amazon at £8.99 as I want them for this week.

Delivery only at Maplins. And no warranty as they've gone bust!
