QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I would like to use this light with remote sensor behind a 27in iMac. I also have a 27 BenQ monitor beside it and may eventually add lights to it as well. Will I be able to control 2 different strips of lights with 1 infrared remote?
You could, but it's potentially a double-edged sword. You might want to be able to set the brightness for each light differently, depending on the task. As long as both receivers have line-of-sight with the remote, they will both respond. You could also connect both to a single dimmer with a 2.1mm x 5.5mm DC barrel adapter Y-connector. (1 female to 2 male). We have some on hand that we will be offering soon, but they are available from your favorite online retailers too.
Installation was easy thanks to straight forward directions. The song playing on the calibration video was a highlight. I’ll be using LX1 bias lighting for all my monitors and TVs.
These lights were exactly what I expected. The remote (optional add on purchase) provides various brightness levels to choose from that are all noticeably different. This allows some nice customization options. In addition, the lights themselves are very easy to setup and use. No complaints here.
Okay look I rarely ever write a review. I only ever right one if the product + the customer service is exceptional. I bought this light after reading many reviews on what the best bias light is (which for the record is Medialight). But seeing as this was for a bedroom TV and not my dedicated TV room, I wanted something lower cost. I have tried out Luminoodle in the past. I was about to go back to them when I came across the LX1 by the same company and people that make the Medialight. Shipping was quick. After install there was a noticeable upgrade in light compared to the Luminoodle. Its hard to put your finger on it but the light just seemed more balanced and vibrant. The experience just looked better. The particular shade of white also seemed different even though both are technically related at 6500K. I also ordered the dimmer and IR remote. My dimmer ended up being bad. Jason, was so awesome, he had a new one shipped out within hours of me reporting the issue to him. I got it and installed it. Working perfectly. Thanks Jason and team. Will definitely be ordering one soon for my TV downstairs
I searched the usual suspects, Ebay, Amazon etc, for a Bias lighting setup that would work with my 65” Sony and my Harmony Elite remote. Low and behold, I found the LX1. The light is brighter than I will ever need and almost perfect specs. But the best part is because it’s IR not RF and that is is registered with Logitech, I can us it as a part my TV remote activity. All cheaper than any of the so called 64k led kits on those on line market places. I very happy!!
New to bias lighting and had a few questions which were answered promptly and thoroughly. I purchased 1 XS light plus an in-line switcher each for a 27' iMac and accompanying grading monitor of the same size. Everything works and after only a couple days of use I can say that my eyes seem less fatigued at the end of the day and I have more trust in the color representation of my monitor. After having recently installed some lesser quality strip leds in my daughter's bedroom, I can attest to the significantly higher quality and accuracy of light that these leds produce.
Been looking at bias lighting for a while, but was honestly skeptical of the many (ie chinese knockoff) brands online. When I saw the team behind MediaLight had a more affordable option, I jumped on it right away, and haven't looked back.

The LX1 is fire. I attached it to my Sony X950H with ease. The 5 meter length was perfect for my 75" TV. The color accuracy looks spot on. I'm comparing it to a gray screen on my TV, which was professionally-calibrated by Geek Squad. I just bought 2 more LX1, one for my PC and one for my smaller 55" TV. If you put it side by side with the luminoodle the luminoodle looks very blue. The LX1 looks like pure white.
Purchased a couple of these for a 43" TVs, four-sided installations. Perfect length for this application, with the ability to mount the strip approximately 2" from the edges with length to spare. The strip comes to neatly rolled with 3M double-sided tape affixed to the back and packaged in a nice bag. I used blue painter's tape for the initial test mount (I recommend doing so to get angles and distance perfectly), but as long as the surface is cleaned beforehand (dust/oil), foresee no issues with the 3M adhesive sticking. I connected the 3m strip via USB 2.0, which powered it with no issues. Upon turning them on, I was very pleased with not only the look, but feel of the LX1 strip. The high CRI and 6500K color are not only pleasing to the eyes, but very soothing as well. I found 10% to be the most pleasant for viewing, but will definitely utilize higher percentages when in need of a bit more ambient light and less focused on a cinematic experience. It creates a very nice ambiance overall. The Infrared Remote Control & Dimmer is very nice, a must-have for adjusting the strips. I am sure the In-Line Dimmer is adequate too, potentially less convenient depending on your TV setup though. Just ensure the infrared control has a clear line of sight for the remote to work properly. The LX1 strip powered on/off with the TV itself (via TV remote). However, it did increase the brightness to 100% before powering down and remained at 100% when powering back on. When powering off the strip via LX1 remote control dimmer, prior to turning off the TV, the lights remained at my desired brightness upon powering them back on (via LX1 remote). When I powered on/off the TV and LX1 separately, the LX1 strip remained off even when turning my TV on, so you will need to power on the LX1 strip separately if you care about brightness level memory. If not, powering the strips on/off with the TV remote is convenient and even found the 100% brightness to be dramatic when turning the TV on. One push of the 10% preset button on the LX1 remote and good to go. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and strongly recommend giving it a shot. Jason was very prompt and thorough with any inquiries regarding his products and LEDs in general. He goes above and beyond and definitely takes a lot of pride in his work and customer service. I contemplated bias lighting for a few years before pulling the trigger. When I initially discovered bias lighting, I was a bit skeptical and wondered if it was a gimmick. The overabundance of cheap low-quality LED strips on Amazon did not instill confidence either. However, I came across the MediaLight Mk2 (remember seeing the original MediaLight a few years back) and it led me to their budget-oriented LX1 line. This allowed me to justify sampling the concept/product without breaking the bank. After looking through the website and corresponding with Jason, I can see the amount of research and quality control he goes through. I can assure you his products truly are an asset to any setup. The LX1 line allowed me to keep my budget reasonable without a sacrifice in quality or experience. If I had a larger budget and more practical application for even higher CRI LEDs (professional photo/video editing or full-scale home theater), I would have given the MediaLight Mk2 a shot. All in all, if you are like me and anticipate using these for modest setups, or just prefer to keep costs down without sacrificing quality, give the LX1 strips a shot.
Sounds like a potentially defective dimmer. It should retain its brightness level when the TV turns off. Can you check again and let us know? It can appear brighter when it turns back on because it slowly fades on.
I'm not sure why this is so much cheaper than MediaLight but it's frickin' amazing. The white point is spot-on. Truly impressive, guys. Installation was a breeze. The optional remote dimmer works as it should. Bravo.
