You can see by the review of Flexfire LEDs and Maxim Lighting's LED strip lights that there are varying differenes in price, brightness, and power comsumption. Upon reviewing the data, Flexfire LEDs strip lights are between 20% and 144% brighter than Maxim lighting's brightest tape light.
Though our LED strips consume more energy, they produce a lot higher light output. If energy consumption is an issue for your project, we would recommend the UltraBright Design Series in this case. It is 20% brighter and costs anywhere between 77% and 51% less.
