CORSAIR Debuts iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strips for Desktop Ambient Lighting

CORSAIR, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced the launch of the new CORSAIR iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strips, the first in a new ecosystem of iCUE-powered ambient RGB lighting products that vastly expand the possibilities of synchronized RGB lighting. CORSAIR iCUE software has been at the forefront of some of the world's most ambitious and spectacular-looking system builds, and now extends beyond the PC with lighting that illuminates your entire environment. Available in a comprehensive Starter Kit and two sizes of Expansion Kits, LS100 Smart Lighting Strips transform your room with vivid customizable lighting profiles, game and media integration, and audio visualization.

Experience an unprecedented level of immersion with real-time media integration - CORSAIR iCUE software analyzes your video signal and outputs matching colors from the LS100 Smart Lighting Strips on your screen's edges to the surrounding area, taking the action beyond your screen whether you're leading your team to victory on the battlefield or watching your favorite movie. Your ambient lighting setup can also turn your room into a full-scale audio visualizer that brings every beat of your music to life in real-time.
Connect LS100 Smart Lighting Strips to the included lighting controller for vibrant visuals and near-unlimited lighting customization via iCUE software. iCUE unites all of your compatible components and devices through a single interface, giving you full control and personalization of your entire setup. iCUE makes it easy to synchronize your new external ambient lighting effects with your system's iCUE-compatible RGB devices such as fans, DRAM, keyboards, and more, setting your entire gaming setup apart from the rest with more personalization than ever before. When playing iCUE-compatible PC titles, iCUE even turns your system into an extension of the game by dynamically reacting to in-game events for the most immersive experience possible.

The CORSAIR iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strip Starter Kit includes 2x 450 mm strips with 27 LEDs each and 2x 250 mm strips with 15 LEDs each for a total of 84 individually addressable RGB LEDs. The Starter Kit also includes a two-channel external USB lighting controller and an external power source, able to light up to 192 total RGB LEDs to illuminate even the most ambitious of gaming setups. Each light strip provides an array of vivid color, with a built-in light-diffusing casing that softens and blends light for continuous and smooth illumination. LS100 Smart Lighting Strips are easy to securely install with mounts that use heavy-duty magnetic fasteners with an adhesive backing.

To further enhance your setup with even more ambient lighting, the iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strip Expansion Kits are available in two sizes: 450 mm and 250 mm, each containing two Smart Lighting Strips.

Whether you're in the middle of an intense gaming session, binge watching the latest show, or listening to your favorite album, iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strips enable you to do what you love and surround yourself with a symphony of color.

It's only €38... Edit: Right, that's just for an extension :confused: o_O :kookoo:

Although, for whatever reason, Newegg wants $120!!!

And Microcenter even more at $135..!

Starter Kit is €86.90 at multitronic, so around $96.80.

Still... for 2x 450mm and 2x 250mm RGB strips it is indeed very expensive and the extensions more so. At this point you might as well just DIY an Arduino Ambilight.

As a side note, mate of mine made this for shits and giggles... Because who doesn't want an extra 430 LEDs on the back of their monitor?

It doesn't hurt to have another ambilight variant... but again, as always, the software will decide if this will sink or swim. If it turns out it supports DX9 to 12 without a hefty performance penalty, there will be people to put down money for it.
