Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Great... if they worked right
I love the idea of these lights, but they just lack quality craftsmanship. Worked nicely for a short while, then they sporadically start to flake out. On two sets out of the three I purchased, about 4-5 bulbs in a group malfunction and flicker the wrong color pattern. I should have known an expensive product that only carries a 30 day warranty wouldn't last. Gemmy, the manufacture will not do anything for you once the 30 days is up. :( Too expensive not to last.

I purchased these after X-mas so I got 75% off. Great price so I got 2 sets. The only downside is that you have to preset the pattern on the lights before stringing them together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mikepax Worked great for first 2 years
I had bought 6 strings to go around the sides and front of my house. Looked and worked great for the first 2 years, then this year I put them up again and 2 of the 6 strings started having problems with them. About 6 to 8 bulbs on each of the 2 strings only showed white not multi colored as the the other bulbs did. Tried to change to different colors on the strings, but those 6 to 8 bulbs remained white. So as with everyone else stating the same type of issues with these, do not buy as this was a waste of 50 per string and I bought 6!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MrScott Malfunctioned New - Similar to other reviews - Will avoid ALL Gemmy Products in the future
Bought 3 sets of these lights ( over $50 per set ) to outline the house so they were plugged-in from end to end. It was difficult to change pattern once they were on house (2nd floor). Then first 3 lights on one of the strands stopped responding and broke the light pattern. I posted a comment on Gemmy's Facebook page and 10 hours later I was referred to their website. I went to their website and opened a ticket. Near the end of business that day I called their offices and was redirected back to ticketing process on their website. I asked how long should I expect to wait for ticket assignment and was told they were back down to around 48 hours from over a week wait time. I am now at 57 hours and ticket is still open and has not been assigned to anyone. If you traditionally start decorating after Thanksgiving, this is a considerable percentage of the time frame in my opinion. After reading other reviews for this product, and seeing all the combined requests and comments on their Facebook page - I will stay away from this brand.... as far as I can get. It's much more practical and logical to just return these lights vs. trying to reach a resolution with the vendor. They would be awesome if they were quality lights.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Garbage, read all reviews and don't waste your time and money
I really dislike bashing a product but this one deserves it. The quality and support are terrible. Bought 6 sets last year different lengths that didn't have a remote. I had to take 2 of them back since only 1/2 the strands worked. Also I could only power up 3 strands connected, any more and they wouldn't work. This year I found this remote set and bought it to control all my sets. Once plugged in only the remote set changed. All the other strands did their own thing. Instructions stated that each set must be pre programmed w/ any of the remotes as well as all have the same number of led bulbs in each connected strand. Turns out you need to buy multiple sets of the remote ones. Contacting their support is impossible and I have yet to hear back from last year. Stay Clear!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tripp0305 Looked Great....until I got home.
I bought two of these sets in the store yesterday and one of the two sets did not work. It had three lights in a row with a problem; 2 just would not light at all, and the one in front of them both just flicked which looked like a short like many of the other reviews here said. I figured I would just exchange it, no problem.
I purchased these without even looking online at the reviews and that was a mistake. Now after reading all the reviews I would rather not mess with this product. I did have one issue with the lights. I didn't see any directions or options in the instructions to change a bulb if one goes out prematurely. All other light sets have builds that pull out , but I guess because of the technology of the color changing that would be a problem. This product is too pricey to risk having a few laps burning out before the rated life.
Additionally, I did have something good to say about these lights. I saw a few low star reviews that said that the lights did not sync up. I can tell you that those individuals did not read the instructions. The light set have a memory of the last program they were in. You plug in each light set by itself and pick any program you want, then unplug it, and do the same thing to each additional set. now you have all sets with the same program in the memory....NOW you plug them all in series, and use the remote and all lights will cycle through the programs at the same time. It was pretty spectacular looking seeing both sets fully laid out on the floor. Sadly this is the only positive thing that I can say about this product.
