Head To Head Comparison of “Neon” LED Strips

Only a few years ago, you were limited to buying LED strips that were flat tape and had gaps between the lights. Now, you can buy stuff that really does look like a neon bulb, but it is a flexible silicone LED packed strand. However, quality really varies and it can be hard to figure out what you need to buy.
