Although LifeSmart’s Cololight Plus is not the brightest, because it is more for decorative, ambient lighting, its incredibly small size and modular design more than makes up for it. Each Cololight panel is able to display multiple colors simultaneously, which looks amazing when combined with preset patterns. Cololight Plus is also incredibly inexpensive, so you can buy the basic set that includes the important controller, and you can add panels as you go at an equally impressive price.
