Rated 4 out of 5 by Hamish19 Fantastic product.
Product wise it's great. It's quite sturdy and very easy to use doesn't require a lot of setting up and the program for customising is very simple as well. It would perhaps be nice if there was more customisable options which could create a little bit of a light show but other than that it's very reasonable. Some of the beta programs don't really work like the sound program which lights up to different aspects of the sound but that will probably get sorted.
The only thing is. It just makes your computer look nice. All the excitement is gone after half an hour because it just does the thing you set it to non stop, and once the fun is out of it, you don't really need it. Having bought it, unless you have more money than you need, I'd suggest seeing where the money might be better spent before you get this, especially if your doing a custom build as £50 could go a long way to more storage or better storage and components.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bemused fancy lights let down by hideous software
Do exactly as you expect them to do, light up your case...
Plenty bright enough, and come with a box rammed full of varying length extender wires etc. Magnetic led strips sound so insignificant but anyone who has furiously struggled with the useless M3 tape supplied on other LEDs will appreciate what a difference those little magnets make. The M3 tape is also on these (if you like struggling with useless tape) but doesnt need to be used due to the magnets.
The one complaint i have is that the CAM software that needs to be used is so bad it hurts. Constant notification spam about things that i didnt need it to monitor in the first place. I just wanted pretty lights.. And 50 quid? Really?
Once you get the software and drivers sorted out, it is very impressive, if a little distracting.. But thats what you wanted, right?
Needless to say scan service and delivery faultless as usual

Very easy to install and to get working. Then you can spend as much time as you like configuring the colors as you please, many, many options are available.
Overpriced for what it is, you can get the same type of LED strips for under £15 and that's for 5 meters, you get 4 x 30cm stips in this box. So if you want lighting this is an expensive option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CheekyChris Brilliant for dem aesthetics
Really like the HUE+, having come from having no LEDs I don't think I could go back now! The LEDs are all top notch and being able to apply them magnetically is a huge plus, as they can be used and re-used and won't fall off with time.
Customisation is top notch, with the spectrum being my favourite of all the lighting modes. The only gripe I have does arise from the customisation itself however, and that is the software required to control the HUE+; NZXT's 'CAM'. This software is among the most unstable I've ever used, and at best is very intermittent with starting. Once it's on, usually it's fine, although crashing is an occurrence which happens more than it should. Unfortunately it is rather frequent that the software will flat-out refuse to start, meaning I either have to restart or reinstall if I want to change lighting modes. It also will ask for administrator privileges EVERY time you open the program, even if you select it to start automatically on boot.
In short, the HUE+ is a triumph in aesthetical PC customisation, and I would heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to add massive visual appeal to their rig. The only downfall as far as I'm concerned is the dodgey software, which although annoying does not subtract from the product significantly enough for me to consider it a deal-breaker. Software can also be fixed through updates as well, so it can only get better!

Great led kit that's fast and easy to install.
Magnetic strips are wonderful and easy to reposition should you change your mind or case. The controller box fits into most ssd drive trays (great in the enthoo primo slots at the back of the case) and its easy to install a professional and clean looking lighting system into your rig.
Its only achilles heel is the CAM software. For the most part its great with some genuinely useful features (temperature monitoring with alerts is a nice touch) but can throw up alerts that after inspection don't appear to be true.
Mine reports from time to time that a cpu fan has stopped spinning is no longer working. After removing the top to check, the fans on my radiator are clearly spinning. This problem seems to have plagued the software for over a year now with no fix so far. While it may not seem problematic, it may lead to the "boy who cried wolf" scenario, when one day it really has stopped working but you ignore the message.
Other than that though, awesome piece of kit and if the software is fixed, a perfect led kit.

Overall an excellent piece of LED lighting kit. Build quality is great however my NZXT HUE+ did come with an LED strip with a misbehaving LED. There is a lot of customisation with the CAM software to personalise your PC, such as different modes, for example if you want a breathing effect or even a Night Rider style theme, furthermore you also have the ability to choose any colour combination witch is useful. It comes with plenty of extension cables to be able to route around your case, especially if it is quite large. I installed the HUE+ in a Corsair 760t and had no issues.
Great product can't fault it!
