I thought this might not be what we were looking for, which was real neon. After receiving this in the mail, I was blown away. The fact that it not only looks like neon- but that it is much safer than real neon, and it is fully dimmable with an amazing remote control - I mean, WOW! It is game-changer and really pushes our office aesthetic to the next level. Thanks a lot team for an amazing product.
