Light Mi Neo Sync Box & TV Backlight Kit - Better than Philips Hue?

The Light Mi Neo Sync Box & TV Backlight Kit can sync one HDMI source with the colors on your TV, and it does it really great! The Philips Hue Sync Box can do it with more sources and supports higher FPS and HDR, but it costs a lot more money and you need to my Philips Hue lights and a hub too. With Light Mi Neo you get two excellent full LED light strips in the box that are ready to plug in to the sync box. All for just 119 US dollar. Watch video below.
