I've purchased 6 spools of these lights, and not a single have been tangled up as the previous reviewer posted. They have easily unwound from the spool. I had one set of lights where part of the string wouldn't light up, and I easily exchanged it for another set at the store. Overall, these are great lights. I shopped around quite a bit, including at Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, Ace/Best Value hardware stores, and found these commercial grade lights to be priced the best. Great lights, great value, reputable manufacturer, and ready to go off the spool! I would definitely purchase them again.
I thought the lights on the spool would make it easier. However, the lights were not put on properly and in fact were incredibly tangled. We therefore had to untangle it, and one of the lights broke in the process. Once we got the lights up, we were pleased overall. However, I don't think I would buy more of these lights again because of how tangled they were initially.
The light color and brightness were fine...but,
- single bulbs burned out which are supposed to be longlasting
- complete sections of lights went out due to wiring?
- finding replacement bulbs is difficult and there are two styles per string.
Very aggravating. I think it is just lousy quality.
Love this product... only issue is I had purchased them to add to existing bulbs purchased in store, and didn't realize that what I previously had were the 'warm white' led faceted sphere bulbs - and the new ones I purchased are a 'cool white' bulb. Therefore I have a mix of yellow tinted bulbs, and blue-tinted bulbs. I have went ahead and purchased more of the cool white bulbs to switch out w/ my previous sets, which I have no idea what I'm gonna do w/, as the cool white are much 'cleaner' and brighter looking.
I ordered these lights for my husband who is deployed in Iraq. He uses them to put on his bunk for lighting. The electricity is really bad there so he needed something that did not use a lot of power but would do the job. He says that they are great and plans to hand them down to his replacement in October. Thanks!
