Section already out
I have only had these lights up for a week & already a section of them out! Frustrating!!!
I purchased 4 new sets of the clear icicle lights. This was to be the first year I had outside lights on my home. I am a single, new homeowner. I was very excited to have the money and home to actually decorate for the holidays. I hired someone to put my lights up for me. I used the clear icicle lights (purchased at Wal-Mart) with larger red led lights on the top (these were a different brand, purchased elsewhere). They looked fabulous! It was wonderful. Until.... I plugged them in on the second night. There was a space about 1 1/2 foot area in one of the sets that was not working. I got the ladder out. Spent 30 minutes in the freezing cold replacing every bulb in the unlit area. Still nothing! 2 days later there was another section out in a different strand. I tried changing bulbs in this area with the same results! By the time Christmas was here there were a total of 5 areas out (1 in 3 strands, 2 in 1 strand)! I was embarassed to turn my lights on!
They're good and cheap
They're good lights make sure you check them before you hango them up there's always a chance you get a bad batch. But to the person who hooked 10 boxes of lights together that's the reason they don't work read the box, you overloaded the circuit and blew the fuse that's why the first strand in the circuit wouldn't work you can only hook three up in a row. They're good for what they are even better if you use them the correct way
I have purchased Christmas lights 3 times this year just to replace them 3 times this year. 2 of those times the lights weren't even on the house, yet. I have an 20' + extension ladder that is heavy and difficult to man handle.. Having to deal with cheap made lights isn't worth the repeat. Also, this has happened over last previous 2 years. Not going to walmart for Christmas lights EVER again.
I bought 6 boxes of these lights and took them out to check them and so far 3 boxes have a foot or better of the lights out. I'm not even bothering to check the other ones these junk things are all going back to the store and I will not ever purchase this brand again!!!
