I ended up using 2 of these to decorate around some shelving and a fireplace only because I had an outlet on either side. I originally bought these to string together outside but was disapointed to find that they could not be connected. This should have been stated on the packaging.The option of three different settings is nice. The quality is average because whenever I touch the wiring near the dial to change the setting the lights blink on and off before I even touch it. Not normal. At least for right now all the lights work and it looks nice around my fireplace. My non-led lights decide on their own which lights work and when. Some lights on the non-led don't work then another time they do and others are off. I had returned them and bought different ones but the same thing happened.I don't understand why it seems so hard to offer a product like this that works the way it should. I'd be willing to pay a little more for that.
Cannot connect to each other

I think they look ok, but the fact that they can't connect end to end is a deal breaker.needs to specified on the package

Purchased three 18' strings for wrapping our lamp posts. The fact that each string needs to be connected to an outlet was not an issue in this application, but if using to decorate a long length of a railing or fence, this would present an unusual predicament. My biggest concern is that while these products are primarily meant for outdoor use, the sockets and other openings are not sealed to keep moisture out. Before I put up the garland, I used silicon sealant to plug the back of each socket where the wires enter. I also sealed around each lamp base. I did not remove each plastic C6 lens to seal that opening. I hope these pressed-in fittings are self-sealing. I also felt I needed to seal the connector at the power supply and the dial to select the mode of operation.The dial to switch the modes does not make a positive connection causing the lights to sometimes turn off, resulting in having to jiggle the dial to bring the lights back on.While I have discovered that blue and purple are accepted colors for the Christian advent season (the reason for the season), there are WAY TOO MANY PURPLE AND BLUE LIGHTS. There are not enough green and red lights which to me better represent the secular holiday season. I have yet to decide to use the white only mode.With only two spare LED lamps, I don't know which color light they emit. I could not find a source to by replacement LEDs on the Home Depot website listed on the package or in Home Depot store. If these LED strings are expected to last virtually "forever" I will surely need more that two spare LED'sI was also surprised to see the specific link to Home Depot. Are these products packaged specifically for HD, or are there other sources for spare LEDs?I recommend not using these out of doors.Okay for indoor use.Color scheme cannot be determined in the store from the packaging.At $30 each they are much more expensive than professional grade LED strings to be used out of doors.Not enough spare lamps.

For the price, I thought this garland was very cheaply made and looked cheap. The green is such a pale color that it looks very faded. The LED lights do not shine very brightly; and there is too much purple in it and not enough red. The garland is not very thick.
Beautiful garland, super white and multi colored lights, well. Made, great price

I would recommend this garland to decorate for Christmas.Well made, very bright lights, great price!
Can't be strung together...whats the point?

The light strings/garland cannot be strung together...each string requires it's own plug. NOWHERE on the package is this specified! Waste of time and have returned them all.
Garland for over the door

No problems so far, works great and looks great. I like how I can switch between three settings, constant white, constant color, and alternating color and white.Purchased this about 1 wk ago and is still going strong.
Not pleased at all

We bought 8 strings of these to garland all the way across the front of our log cabin but the strings do not connect together. It is not what I was wanting at all. Without stringing 8 extension cords across the porch and no one wants that. I wish they would have made it clear in the description these garlands cannot be connected together. We will be returning them.
