Everyone comments on the light quality. Having the full spectrum is noticeable. Waveform customer support has been fantastic also.
With customer support assistance, I designed and fabricated several fixtures with Absolute Series 5000K LEDs for use in art reproduction. The quality of the light is superior to other LED sources I tested, and customer support provided detailed information to facilitate my design process. Very pleased.
The overall quality of these bulbs is tremendous. Truly unlike any other. I am a big fan of the color reproduction on these strips. They give off true natural colors without any color shifts. The 3M VHB tape on the back of the strips is also amazing. I wouldn't trust any other adhesive on the back of these strips. 11/10 would buy again! :)
I built a custom 2' x 2' light box setup by placing these lights along the sides of a plastic storage container which I lined with diamond-foil texture vinyl material. I'm running the 5000K setup off a cheap 600W modular PC power supply via SATA to 12v barrel. I used two of these LED rolls, with one roll divided in half to be the side lights with a full roll at the top side. I photograph colorful sunglasses lenses and need primo accurate and right color especially those difficult to render greens and purples. These LED offer fantastic CRI. I'm still learning about camera settings to get the optimal sharpness and color.
Enjoyed the great color rendering and the physical flexibility of the 6500K, 99CRI, strip. Can't wait to try D50 version too. Looking at the spec/test results, I may use each version for different types/styles of artworks to be photographed with.
The light output is perfect, but even better is that everything is quality all the way to the selection of a tape that actually stays! Tape also makes it very versatile.
Product is exactly as per specs. Great lumen.

Good service and quality
I WOULD LIKE TO APPRECIATE YOUR FOLLOW UP ABOUT THE ORDER THAT I PLACED.IT WAS VERY HELPFUL FOR ME.ALSO RECEIVED PRODUCTS AS PER DESCRIBED IN YOUR WEB AND RECOMMENCED FOR OTHERS TO DEAL WITH YOU.
My company does product design and development of consumer electronics. So, we need good lighting for prototyping, color matching, etc. The problem is we have partitioned office spaces inside a large warehouse with a 36' roof and dark wood rafters. Our solution was to build a pergola over the office area and install 5K Absolute Series LED strips under the beams. The light is great and provides rich detail to any task. It feels light we're working in small courtyard on a mediterranean island with diffuse light shining down.
One thing I will note, proper diffusion is very important. Otherwise, the light can look harsh. We tried a few methods, including the types of aluminum channels offered by Waveform. The best diffuser material we found was prismatic acrylic which you often see in drop down ceiling panels. It was the best at breaking up the segmented LED pattern and creating a uniform source, not to mention had the highest light transmission. Using a light meter on our work surfaces, the intensity actually increased when the bare LEDs were covered with the prismatic acrylic. We ended up making out own fixtures out of aluminum U-channel. Mounting the LED's perpendicular to the diffuser as illustrated in the attached drawing yields outstanding results.
We also found an excellent and cost effective solution for power - standard ATX computer power supplies. They're inexpensive, have very high 12V current ratings, good voltage regulation as well as a built-in cooling fan. You can easily power them on and off using the PS_ON# enable pin.
