The proliferation of inexpensive HDTV bias lights has been the only good thing to happen in 2016, but even by our standards, $12-$14 for RGB models is cheap.
If you haven’t seen these before, they’re basically LED light strips that plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.
