We purchased the 6500K ABSOLUTE SERIES LED strips together with the realUV 365 and 395nm strip lights to provide a naturalistic spectrum for the jumping spiders in our research laboratory. Using dimmers for the UV lights, we were able to simulate a naturalistic spectrum for a large number of spiders in a compact space, which would not have been possible with any other lights I have seen on the market (and I have searched extensively). The lights have much better color rendering and are also much, much brighter than similar but cheaper lights you can purchase elsewhere. Thank you, waveformlighting, for producing such a great and unique product.
I used the product to tune and achieve different color tempertatures. The LED strip performed great in terms of acheiving different CCT, CIE xy chromaticity, CRI and luminance. Service quality and communication was great.
It would be great if size and weight of batteries and dimmers can be reduced. Two dimmers could be on same pannel to reduce circuit complexity. Thank you!
Customer service is great. Very helpful in answering questions and directing to the right product.
So far I have bought one roll of this for a test installation with waveform's dim-able transformer, a Lutron dimmer and a 3 meter Klus Lipod track and translucent cover for an artists studio. It met my expectations from the documentation on the web site and I shall be buying more.
I also had quite a few questions which were all answered promptly, informatively and helpfully.
No dots were visible, the intensity seemed the same from one end of the tape to the other, and there was no hum or flicker from one of the dim range to the other.
The customer service is impeccable. The product exceeds my expectations. One happy customer here :)
Beautiful, exceptional daylight spectrum. Absolutely necessary for proper viewing of artwork and anything involving the evaluation of color.
Very beautiful light! Technically perfect for my professional photographic purposes: evaluating professional prints and tests! I truly recommend it!
It was hard not to make that joke, but indeed those LEDs amazed me. I was looking for a replacement for very high CRI D50 fluorescent tubes, specifically tailored for photography, and I was very excited when I came across this product. I ordered 2 reels, and appart some customs problems (during which I had the full support of the waveform team), my package came in perfect shape, harm-free. I put them to the test and I wasn't disappointed, they're truly stunning.
The diode density is tight and allow a neat diffusion of light.
The 3M adhesive is top quality, pretty strong and reliable. It doesn't affect negatively the thermal dissipation, and it will hold the heat.
There were not a single diode showing any sign of weakness nor default.
The soldering job is clean and strong, and the plug system made the installation very comfortable.
The brightness is powerful, and yes, the colors are extremely detailed under the lights : even if the light appear like a neutral/cold white looking at the source, you can appreciate the high CRI when looking at your hand, which will have its nice warm color, with the full palette of tones. The color depth of the reds is just wonderful, and also the difficult violet : tested on a picture of a morning, cloudy sky, you get with high precision the subtle transition of the purple, foggy sky, to reddish blue, to deep blue sky...The kind of subtlety I was looking for, the kind you can only get at this level of quality. Thus they truly deserve the name.
Impressive product, and many thanks.
When I found out these 5000k CRI 99 lights conform to ISO 3664:2009, I was immediately interested. We ordered a 16 foot tape and a power supply. I assembled a test strip of (3) four foot strips of the LEDs on a silver reflector. When we hung it over our ink consoles in the press room, we were impressed with the light. ISO 3664 needs a specific lux level for proper viewing. We were able to achieve this level with the 3 strips of Absolute Series. Our pressmen spend a lot of time color matching press sheets to contract proofs made of many different substrates, and these lights are great for critical evaluation. Also, customer service at Waveform was top notch. I was able to change my order before it shipped without any trouble.
