Based on 1 ratings:
it has decent ambiance, but the light doesn’t penetrate anywhere even with maximum rated power applied.
Apply +12V to the + pin and ground any of the colored wires to turn the LED color on. When using with a microcontroller, you would need an n-channel mosfet https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10213 to turn it on and off. The LED strips require a lot of power (especially the 5M strips) but worked well with a variable power supply set at 12V/1A. The LED strip does get warm to the touch when using.
