I looked for a few hours at different sites to find a decent deal because 7' of lights doesnt come cheap when you need 10 or more strands. I decided to order these. No hassles, received in 4 days I think. All lit well, they are not cheaply made by any means. Have fuses in strand and come with extra fuses. They are bright, not the Big Lots brand for sure! They twinkle well and its not obnoxious or seizure disclaimer worthy, its smooth. First season but they look great. I need a few more strands to make my house officially awesome in my neighborhood but maybe next year. I would absolutely recommend these and i plan to buy more or maybe try the soft twinkle as well. 5* in my book.
