Tech Cold Cathode Kit Review
by David, 25 July 2002
is becoming mainstream, as more and more computer users cut up their cases in
an effort to keep things cooler, or simply to spice up the looks of their machines.
One accessory to casemodding equipment includes the usage of lights inside the
cases, usually through the use of neon lights, LEDs, or cold cathode tubes.
ago, I had reviewed the Dual Neon Light
Kits from Below Zero, which has long since been phased out of Below Zero's
product line, and replaced with cold cathdes. That was my first brush with an
actual casemodding project.
few weeks ago, a company I had never heard of previously, Sunbeam
Tech, contacted me and offered to send me one of their cold cathode kits to
review. I jumped at the chance, as this was to be my first actual hands on contact
with a cold cathode kit. I'd never actually seen a cold cathode before, as the
only times i've seen any of them are through pictures of modded cases and from
was founded in 1998 as a buying office for computer and mobile phone peripherals
for US customers. In 2001 the company started to specialize in the design and
assembly of various products for their customers. Their current product line includes
cold cathodes, EL cables as well as EL strips. As Sunbeam are relatively new to
the market, it will be interesting to see how their products turn out.
are some product pictures taken from the Sunbeam Tech website.
take a look at the package Sunbeam sent over, shall we?
