Corsair iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers
Mordor RGB Towers?
Today we’re presenting the Corsair iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers. We must admit that Corsair has a true passion for RGB LEDs. RAM modules have them, as well as AIOs, chassis, headphones, and other accessories, like the iCUE LS100 Monitor Backlighting Kit led strips. All of this can be controlled and synchronized through iCUE software. The LS100 (installed behind the monitor) was the first step, followed by the iCUE LT100 kits designed as ‘lighthouses’ that can be set up flexibly to raise ambient lighting to a new level, with an option to synchronize the lights with what is happening in games, films, and videos, or use them as visualization for music playback.
There’s also the option to illuminate your space immediately at the push of a button, with 11 profiles available out of the box. If you prefer, you can move the tower backward for more subtle illumination of your space. Each of the towers (you can find two in the starter kit) has 46 integrated RGB LEDs and can be placed flexibly to expand the radius of your lighting system. It’s worth mentioning that a similar solution is already available on the market – Philips Hue Play. The Corsair iCUE LT100 is available in the form of two kits:
- the LT 100 Starter Kit contains two 42 cm-high towers, with 46 individually addressable RGB LEDs each, a power supply, and a removable headphone holder
- the Expansion Kit includes a single tower. You can use it to expand your system or to completely replace the secondary tower (but not the base one) from the starter kit if it breaks.
The starter is priced at $129.99/€139.99, with expansion kits available for $59.99/€69.99, and up to four towers supported in a single system. This is not a cheap solution for sure. But is it worth the price?
