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, and improve your TV’s perceived contrast levels to boot. And so it makes sense that this basic USB-powered kit from Antec is one of the most popular items we’ve ever listed, and you can get your own for $19 right now
(after you clip the 20% off coupon), if you hurry.
Update: That was quick! It looks like the 20% coupon is gone for now, but you can still order the kit for $24, which isn’t horrible.
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 bask in its glow. The power cord includes a small switch, 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 dips below $20 every once in awhile, but sells out within minutes or hours every time we post it. Even if you already got one for yourself, this would make a great gift. [Antec Bias Lighting Kit, $19. Clip the 20% off coupon.]
