I have sat at my computer for hours at night and after a while my eyes get strained and I will get a headache. This is because I don’t have any lights on. This can get very annoying especially if you are gaming or working on a project.
I have been using the Bias Halo 6 lighting kit for almost 2 weeks now and I am able to work longer with less eye strain and headaches. I am using a 24-inch monitor and I have a white wall behind my display so the kit works really great. Also the ambient light is more than bright enough for the workplace so I don’t have to get up and turn on the lights for things in most cases.
The only thing I did not like about this kit was that there was no on / off switch. You obviously do not want the LED’s on during the day and many cases and displays have USB ports that stay powered all of the time for charging cell phones and other devices. The only way to turn the LED’s off is to unplug the USB cable.
Obviously this kit is marketed for ambient light behind your display but all it is, is 6 USB-powered LED’s with double-sided tape. This makes the possibilities of what you can do with them endless. Some ideas would be installing them under your desk for some cool ambient lighting, installing them inside of your case, or even installing them under your case for a cool effect.
The kit can be found for about $10 online, which is a great price. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Antec Soundscience Bias Halo 6 LED Lighting Kit a 9 out of 10 score.
– Provides great ambient lighting
