The lights were exactly what I wanted. The lights on the strands that you buy in the stores are either two or three inches apart from each other and that would have been too close for the tree that I wanted to decorate. I took the advice of Christmas Light Source and started by putting lights on the trunk. I love the overall effect and the way my tree looks. I still have the lights on my artificial tree (it's January 15) and am thinking about taking my tree outside with the lights still on it in the spring. I think it will look nice all lit up at night. My tree looks too beautiful to put away, although I have taken the ornaments off. I haven't had any of the lights burn out yet. I am very pleased with my purchase, ease of ordering, and how quickly my purchase arrived. I will turn to Christmas Light Source again in the future, I am sure.
I started with the 50 light strings, same 4 inch spacing, to light my artificial tree. When I ran out of those, I reordered more and added these 100 light strings. Both seem to be excellent quality, especially at such a reasonable price. The wiring is thicker and feels sturdier than my old incandescent lights. The 4 inch spacing is perfect for lighting a tree. I'm very pleased with these lights and the fast shipping, and it feels good to order from a company that is not a giant online or big box retailer.
Love my purchase and thrilled I have so many to get creative with no matter the time of year. Having access to these lights for all occasions allows me more freedom in my creativity when planning parties, holidays, or just cozy environments for my family.
