:. Xoxide Multi Colored Cold Cathode Light Kits (Blue-Green-Red / Blue-Red) .:
The first generation of cold cathodes had a lot of advantages to regular car neon lights and now there is one more to add to the list: multi-colored lighting
that allows even three colors in one cold cathode unit.
The thing that separates these Xoxide Cold Cathode lights from all the others is that
they have more than one color. I know that when I purchased my first Cold Cathode it was difficult to chose the right color because I wanted blue, green, and also a black light but only had enough money for one light, so I was forced to go with only one color for my case. But thanks to Xoxide,
the multi-colored lights are bright and all colors show up nicely. The only
problem I noticed that the green, blue, and red light, is that it is a bit overpowered by the green and red and it was not as
noticeable as the two other colors.
Other than having more than one color on one light, the other thing that impressed me was the very cool inverter where you can connect two cold cathode
units to it. That's very impressive because if you do have more then one light those inverters do take up some room and its great that you can only have one in your computer if you have two cold cathode lights.
When I put the green, blue,
and red cold cathode in the computer I was very impressed with the color effect that the cold cathode made in my computer comparing to a one color light the three colors blew away my other blue light.
When I was comparing the Xoxide lights to my PCmods blue cold cathode light the Xoxide lights where about the same brightness as the Pcmods light. The noticeable difference would be that the Xoxide light is a bit thicker then the Pcmods light but that's not a big problem because you should have no problems in placing the light anywhere you want it.
