This light strip retails for $89.99 and is the much brighter 2nd generation light strip.
Engadget: "With the second-generation hardware... It can now offer tunable white light between 2,000 and 6,500K, so you'll be able to use these as regular bulbs. Secondly, you can extend the strips up to 10 meters by tacking on up to eight single-meter extensions to the 2-meter base unit. In addition, Philips has boosted the output of the bulbs themselves to 1,600 lumens -- a far cry from the 120 lumens found in the original."
1-meter refurbished extension kits are also available for $19.99.
Please note that a Hue Bridge is required to use LightStrip, which is not included.
The number one complaint about these LightStrips has been the adhesive tape, which these refurbished units do not include. Reviews suggest using Gorilla tape, 3M tape, or something similar to mount them.
