We have now purchased 3 sets of the lighting. Two of the three have failed; not holding a charge and the glass solar panels have fallen out. Taking the product back again and going to try one more time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great Solar Rope Lights
I put them down both sides of our deck stairs and across the bottom landing. They are very nice and bright. The pictures I included don't show the brightness because of the camera flash. they really light up the steps nicely, a great safety factor. Especially good if a person has low vision. I am a 78 year old female and I installed them myself.

Very poor output. Not bright at all and does not last very long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLo1 Nice accent light.
I got this to light a set of stairs. I ran this straight up the side wall, and it fit perfectly, the whole length. It provides just enough light to see each tread. It was perfect for my needs. The charge lasts long enough for our night time use.

Plastic clips included broke very easily when trying to install. I have bought three of these, two will be returned as one would not light during dark after a full day of sunshine. Of the other two which are still up, one works pretty well while the second one works off and on.

Love those rope lights. First one we bought little over a year ago, it still worked. It just took a beating from the rain and sun.

Small problem with the LED string- sometimes half of the lights would not light; just manipulated where the unlit section started, and it worked. Perhaps better quality control is needed - but I did get it to work. This is excellent for lighting along a sidewalk - just enough light to show the way, but not so much as to distract.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Red Bought 2 sets 2 weeks ago
I picked up two sets of these lights two weeks ago. They were easy to install and we're working great. First problem I had was one was white and look nice and the other has a yellow tint to it even though it's the supposed to be white like the other. Second problem is the white one that looked good now no longer works. Both lights purchased at same location at the same time and installed same day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SirLikesAlott Wow this is the Kittens' Toe
I took the Chance at about $ 30.00 and got Exactly what I wanted; after attaching the solar panel to the roof edge the batteries get more than 8 hours and the lights stay on until 5 AM (only wish there was an on and off stitch. But lately I have been working all night and have noticed that the other solar lights play out around 8 AM >>> Wish they all came with an On / Off switch.
One unit is large enough for the average full bath but need 3 units for the kitchen, I intend to put this solar LED rope through out the house and all around the roof line so strangers and Thieves can see me coming and RUN !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrampyTom Works Well.
I bought two strings for use as "Runway lights" on a retaining wall next to my driveway. It stays lit well past my bedtime after charging on a sunny day. When installing, it is important to make sure that the wire doesn't get pulled out of the thick and heavy outer tube from the panel end. It is hard to get it back in. The panel is hardwired to the led string which makes installation more difficult than if there was a detatchable connector. All in all, the even spacing of the leds, the litium batteries and the pure white light make this an excellent value as a marker system. It is not a good choice for area illumination.

I bought 4 sets, had to return one since it throws a yellowish light not bright white, the replacement had the same problem. The other two sets are fine and glow white. On Both defective units I swapped out the lights with the sets that are bright and still they glowed yellow. A bit frustrated as I like them however I cant get that final set to match my yard.

I used these in my vendor tent to be able to see my products I was selling. When not using them then, we put them on the camper awning for light when camping. We normally dry camp, which means we don't have hook ups. Will purchase again if need arises.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GlenA Nice while they lasted.
I purchased 2 sets, one in California and one in Colorado.
Both sets performed as expected for about a year, then both sets stopped working.
New batteries did not bring them back to life.

Solar rope light just works straight out of the packaging. I am using for a nontraditional reason, lighting quail cages during winter months and it was zero effort for it to work correctly.

The light role was easy to install and went up quickly. Illuminates my deck just enough for the added light I wanted. And it looks beautiful. I put up three of these light ropes with ease.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Talltenn Excellent product
I purchased two of the solar rope lights to add to my new deck. I was totally amazed at how much light these give off.
I have attached them to the railings and then down the edge of the steps. Everyone has loved the way the lights light up the steps and gives off a soft light to the deck. No other lights are needed unless we are having a dining party. These give off a great light for the pool parties so people can easily see but are not bothered by bright light like so many other pools and deck.
These are the best solar lights that I have purchased. I'll be getting a few more for the next portion of the deck which is being built now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bekki Pleasantly surprised!
Followed directions to let charge first, and my strings worked beautifully. Used while camping for 2 weeks and got great light for the first 2 days, but due to very little sun at my site, much dimmer and shorter lighting the rest of the time, which I expected. I'm concerned the wiring where it connects to the control/solar panel might not last, but for now is holding up. And the ground stakes for the solar panel/controller shouldn't be moved repeatedly. Very flimsy plastic spikes break rather easily. Overall, pleased with these strings. I just hope they last through storage until next summer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RockCrusher 3 years installed & still going strong
Two of these lights have been installed on our pergola for almost four years now. They work great, but the installation clips that came with them had to be replaced fairly early on. This didn't affect the light's function, but the screws were too short to get a large enough bite in the wood.
The lights give off a great glow for summertime sitting in the yard (when other lights would attract flies), and I am pleased at the durability we've gotten out of our 2 sets.
Three years of use at this price definitely gets my five stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trev Great Illumination Product
Have used three of these units and all are reliable. Shortcoming is the mounting hardware. You need to purchase 3/8" cable tiedowns for either end and any bends in mounting surfaces. Protective plastic tubing is rather stiff and the clips are not very good for other than straight, flush mounting. The LED provide great illumination for walkways. Just make sure you select a place to mount the solar collector first before laying out the lamps. You need good sun exposure to ensure all night illumination.

I have purchased many solar lights before usually disappointed, this rope light is the exception. Used two of them for backlighting on my spa/gazebo & they work excellent. Leave them on Ll day/night & still working great after a month. Would purchase again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by aaron Complete Garbage. Terrible Quality. Going back for refund.
Hung the light up, waited until night. Was pleased to see it light up. After 60 seconds, mysteriously died. Fiddled with it, but never came back on.
Obviously major quality control issues. HD should find a better quality supplier. Major disappointment. I wish I could give ZERO stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Septmorne Love these lights
I purchased these lights to put around the edge of a pergola that extends out over our driveway slightly. We glued edging pavers to the driveway and filled in the area with river stones. I wanted to make sure the edge was visible at night but couldn't use any lights that had a stake. This product worked perfectly! We epoxy glued the mounting clips-and a few extras we purchased-to the top of the pavers, let them dry for 24 hours, and then clipped the strand in place. They are holding well, are bright and illuminate the edge well, and stay lit most of the night. I made sure to place the solar panel where it gets sun most of the day, but even on cloudy days I don't notice much of a decrease in the amount of light.

Normally I am not one to write reviews, but if it will help you decide whether this product is worth buying I will take a few moments to give you my opinion. My wife and I built a redwood deck for our hot tub. I used the lights along a bamboo fence that is four feet off the deck. I was skeptacle that solar would work but since the rope light has a long lead to the panel it was easy to position to get maximum sunlight. We were enjoying a summer night and right at dusk the built in sensor turned them on. We were amazed how bright but quaint the lights were.Great buy

We have a bright solar light above each garage door which work beautifully every night no matter how cloudy the day so I didn't even think about our rope lights we ordered from Home Depot not working when we have a cloudy day. Unfortunately, these ropes lights appear to need a lot of sun in order to illuminate. They don't light up our patio on a good day but will illuminate. The illumination is almost still to dark, but truthfully they don't even do that most of the time. We've had to many cloudy days I guess. This tells me what to expect this winter when there's a lot of cloud cover. They also won't stay illuminated at length. They are out by morning before the sun comes up which still defeats their purpose. Again, our lights above the garage door are still bright in the morning so it wasn't expected.
