We’ve all heard that watching TV in the dark can be pretty tough on the eyes, but an ambient bias lighting setup can make the experience much more palatable. This basic USB-powered kit from Antec is down to an all-time low $16 right now, and takes just a few seconds to install.

Update 2: Amazon has sold out entirely. Some third party sellers still have it available, but for higher prices.

Update: It’s now up to $20, which is still a pretty rare price.

All you have to do is plug the LED strip into the USB port on the back of your TV (or any other USB charger, as you just need it for power), stick it to the back of your set with the built-in adhesive, and then enjoy the glow. It has a small switch to turn the light on or off, but a lot of TVs will cut power to their USB port automatically when turned off, which saves you from having to flick it off manually.


This, along with the 100-pack of Velcro cable ties, is one of the most elusive deals we post. It’s never been this cheap before, it only drops below $20 on rare occasions, and it sells out within hours whenever we post it, so you’d better order quickly. [Antec Bias Lighting Kit, $16 $20]
