Rated 4 out of 5Â by Flossie If all you want is the "shooting star", then this is for you!
The descriptive paragraph is misleading, if not an outright come on. It says that this unit can be programmed for up to 5 different effects with a remote. Okay-no remote included or mentioned anywhere in the HD website. And the unit is not otherwise programmable. The bullet points are actually accurate.
Otherwise, the unit is very pretty and the "shooting star"effect is what we were looking for.
Kudos to our favorite store in Everett MA. We ordered online with in store pickup earlier today. When we arrived only 90 minutes after placing the order, it was ready and waiting for us.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bmshaw I was a little disappointed
The lights looked pretty in the store but once I got them home I discovered a couple problems.
The first is that the lights are not bright enough. The light dropping effect is great, but the lights are not bright enough to illuminate the bulbs. You can see the lights but you cant tell what shape the bulbs are. The blue one is the dimmest. They are not bright and festive like I had hoped. They almost look better during the day because you can actually see they are shaped like giant light bulbs.
The second issue is that the cord is nowhere near long enough. The cord is about 3 inches long and the plug hangs off the side. If they had made the cord about a 6 inches longer, it could be hidden on the ground or behind a rock. But there it is, hanging off the side, 6 inches off the ground. Since that's where it plugs into the extension cord, it is ugly. I have had problems with rain shorting out my lights in the past, so I always wrap the ends and connections of my light strings in plastic bags to keep the water out. So now I have the connection of 2 cords in a bag hanging off the side. Nice.
All in all they are decent, and I did decide to keep them and not return them. If the price was lower I'd probably be happier, but $30 for a product with these 2 large flaws is a bit too much.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GR605 Love them but it was missing a piece on the stand
The shooting star lights are beautiful and something different for my yard. One of the stands was missing a piece that hooked it together. I am waiting to hear back from the company about the missing piece but I can find something to make it work if I don't hear from them. They were still worth the price.
