@matthewdllh, individual addressable LED strips usually do not respond to connecting power at all (or in limited form). It is when you drive the data line that the LEDs will react. Also that is a very expensive strip, because it is normally $35 for a 300 LED 5 meter strip, and I paid $20 for 150 LED 5 meter strip myself. On a 65" TV that resulted in 130 LEDs in the end after I cut off the excess, and I'm quite pleased with the sector responsiveness at 4K resolution and was able to get away with a small PSU to power everything.
