Product on Review: CORSAIR iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Kit
Street Price: GBP £79.99 / $119.99
CORSAIR, keen to illuminate your battlestation like something you’d find in a theme park, are back with yet another RGB-laden product. Today we’re looking at the CORSAIR iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Kit which includes everything you need to get you up and running.
The LS100 Lighting Kit is designed to be mounted on the back of your monitor, around the edge of your desk, or frankly wherever you fancy, to provide radiating diffused ambient lighting that can be synchronised with your system, games or media.
Included within the LS100 kit is a pair of 450mm strips, housing 27 LEDs in each, and a pair of 250mm strips with 15 LEDs per strip. There’s also four 300mm RGB extension strips to give more versatility to your placement options. A two-channel controller is also included so you can drive the lighting via CORSAIR’s iCUE software with a USB connection.
The included RGB strips are, from our experience with another similar kit, about right for a 27” monitor, but if you need more, CORSAIR are happy to oblige. £34.99/$39.99 will get you another two 450mm strips, or for £24.99/$29.99 you can grab another couple of 250mm.
We’ve seen similar kits from Razer and NZXT at roughly the same price with give or take the same length strips and total LED count, so is the CORSAIR LS100 more of the same or does it do enough to set itself apart? Let’s find out.
