Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cnred Just ok
I purchased a case of these lights and when I placed batteries in them only about half worked. The problem is the plastic piece that holds the batteries in, keeps the battery from making contact with the (-)(+) contacts on the battery box. So I folded some aluminum foil and placed it on either side of the battery to fill the gap.
Using the unit on timer mode only worked for a few weeks on 6 of them. But they worked fine with (on) mode. With them being on all the time I only had to replace the batteries twice. Which isn't too bad. I used these in my Christmas displays from Thanksgiving to New Years.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rahlquist Nice product, box is inaccurate though. They do not "Flash"
Picked these up for a wreath. They work well and have some nice features like the 6/18 timer, the color shift, and the battery pack being disconnectable. The box states you have a choice of;
Flashing Warm White
Thats not what the product offers though. It offers;
Warm Whit timer
Color Change timer
While the color change shifts each bulb from white to one of 4 other colors (each bulb is white and has one other color) it does not offer flashing as the box stated. Other than that inaccuracy its a nice product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MountainHomeOwner Great alternative to extension cords
People have been telling me I should put lights on a driveway metal railing for years, but I didn't want to run extension cords down and across my driveway, and then have to worry about damaging them during snow removal. These lights have been a perfect solution. They are about 17 feet long (one is about 6 inches longer then the other), and have a control box on one end (mounted to the left post in the picture). The control box has two compartments sealed with gaskets, one for the 3 D size batteries and one for the weather proof switches. One switch controls the light color (I only used the multicolor after verifying both worked), and one is the on/off/timer switch. The timer option turns the lights on for about 6 hours, then off for 18 hours. The duration can't be changed, but 6 hours is a good fixed duration. The lights have been installed for about 3 weeks, through light rain, snow, wind, and temperatures between 10 and 50 degrees F. I would prefer using the more common rechargeable AA size batteries, but it looks like the D size alkalies will last at least one season. Changing batteries in very cold weather could be a hassle, the screws to the battery cover stay on the cover, but the small nuts can easily fall off the box. The gaskets may need to be reinstalled so they aren't twisted, and may work better with a light grease used for underwater camera cases. Overall a great product for the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JDK Product not as indicated on the box in photographs or descriptions.
My wife and I bought two strands of these lights at the Boulder, Colorado Home Depot. The box clearly indicates that the strands are "multi-color" and shows red, green, blue, yellow, and orange lights. Neither of the strands we purchased had any blue or orange bulbs, and one strand had only one yellow bulb. Both strands were almost completely red and green. This was disappointing and suggests poor quality control in the manufacturing of this product.
This now requires our returning the product and searching for another - a huge waste of time during the busy holiday season.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PETEY INCONSISTENT TIMER
I purchased 2 sets of these battery-operated lights. One worked fine but the timer on the other one worked inconsistently; it came on and off willy-nilly. Unfortunately I used them both on one shrub because I needed 100 lights but could not find a set of 100 battery-operated lights with a timer. So, all month I had to go outside when the 1 set came on and manually turn on the other one; same for turning it off. Big pain in the neck and disappointing. I could not exchange it because there were none at my local store.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nobleone The lights performed as advertised.We bright enough to be used in a parade.Although the price of the lights was fair,each used 3D size batteries,
The price was fair.Were bright enough to be used in a parade.However ea.strand required 3D size batteries that added about 25%to the price.OK for a short use time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda I liked them very much especially the fact that they are on a timer. Set and forget.
First time we ever had outdoor lights for Christmas. We don't have access to electric outside and my husband didn't want to use extension cords. I will get more next year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by c2015 Love these!
These lights are great because you can leave them on and your not using electricity or set them to timer and in 6 hrs they will automatically shut off. I don't have to run any wires and can stick them outside in the yard wherever I want. LOVE them! Way better than the solar outdoor sets I used to purchase. Will be buying many more! AND with one set you have your choice if you want them to be steady white, steady multicolor, or flashing from white to multi all in one set!
