Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe The Worst Holiday Lights I've Ever Used
DO NOT PURCHASE THESE LIGHTS!! These lights are without a doubt the worst holiday lights that I have ever purchased and used. Do yourself a favor and scratch these off of your list. They only work at best, one time. In most instances, when you make an attempt to use them for a second season, only one half of a spool of these lights will work. I used a brand new spool in 2015, but when I took them down after the holiday, one half of the spool started flickering. In my first purchase of these lights I purchased 8 spools of these lights. I eventually received a refund for the lights, but what I had to go through to receive the refund was uncalled for. I had an unbelievable amount of proof of purchase to the distributor of the lights after being on the phone with them for at least 1 and 1/2 hours. Home Depot would not refund my purchase price right away. I had to deal with the distributor. Then, Home Depot finally got involved. After all of the hassle with the distributor I am guessing that Home Depot was finally convinced that they were selling an inferior product. But, they are still selling them. This is 9/2016 and I thought I'd try one of the spools to see if they would light up after sitting all Spring and Summer. I tried the first spool. Guess what? Only 1/2 of the spool lit up!! *I am going to have to purchase all new lights for this holiday season. Absolutely ridiculous!!

We purchased 10 sets of these for our garland along a picket fence and they're still working going into year #5. Like others, we've had some stings go out but in every instance a simple fuse replacement fixed the problem. Dec. in NH can be harsh with rain, ice, and snow so it's no surprise that moisture may be the root cause of the fuse failures. The only reason for our 4/5 star rating is that the color temp. of the lights is a bit harsh - obviously LED. Sure wish they were the color version of "warm white" LEDs you can buy now (2,700K).

I bought three strings today after refusing to pay the higher price for LED for years. A third of one of the strands went out after not even an hour. There has been no onclement weather or contact of any kins woth these lights. I will be retirning all three strands and buying higher quality ones tomorrow.

These lights are some of the worst lights I have ever owned. I thought LED lights were supposed to last longer than the standard ones. Junk product with a premium price. They started having a problem the first year after they were put up. Year 2 and more than half the lights are out. Going through and testing them, there are multiple breaks in the wires and a bunch of LED lights no longer work. These were gently put up with plastic clips, taken down and rolled back up on the spool and stored in plastic totes. I see many other people have had problems with these. Home Depot should refund the customers. This product is a lemon for sure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woody Martha Stewart Christmas lights save the season!
I bought two set's of these Martha Stewart Xmas lights to replace two - more expensive set's of lights I had purchased last year from Sam's Club. At that time a six foot section of Sam's lights went off on one string; then, this year the same happened to the second set. I then discovered that I would have to ship the faulty lights back to the manufacturer. I was assured by Home Depot that I could bring any defective lights back to the their store for an exchange. With only a week and a half till Christmas, that was good enough for me.
Result? The Martha Stewart lights never missed a beat, through rain, sleet and snow. Now they are put away till next Christmas and I am confident they will work, and if not...relief is only three blocks away; "HD Customer Service"! Season saved!

They looked really pretty......for about a week. At least 1/3 of the outer bulbs have fallen off (and will not reconnect), and now only 1/2 of them light up. Not really sure how 1/2 of the lights can be out because it is all on 1 string. And, to make you laugh even more, the last 1/2 is the part that is working. Plan to throw these away as soon as I can unhook them from the gutter. Do not waste your money on these.

The strand comes in a reusable spool which prevents tangling. The lights worked very well outside. Light dispersion from each "bulb" is fairly uniform.

We purchased 2 sets of these last year to place on a large hedge ,they were gently put up and only were on for 3 to 4 hours a night set up on a timer ,when christmas was over they were rolled back up on the spool that came with them ,put them back up on the same hedge (should have tested first) one string didnt work at all and only a few lit up on the other ,would not purchase again.
