Rated 1 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by 123abc poor function/very short life span
My home looked great until 2 out of the 6 strands started to malfunction after the first week of purchase. All hung and plugged in properly along the roof line. There is no fix or maintenance like changing a bulb. Once the receiver and or a LED fails, unfortunately they are garbage. On both strands the first 6 functioned perfectly but the rest never changed or turned off but randomly flickered like a candle. If this manufacturer can fix these issues many are having, I think they would have a great looking product worth buying and hanging up in or around your home.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Winterland15 Unreliable
Purchased 3 strings of these in early November 2014, strung them, they worked OK in all patterns until it got cold (-10 C), then they started to flash sporadically, flicker and finally die out. When it warmed up again, they seemed to work OK but again didn't last for long (few hours). By my experience, these don't seem to be designed for winters in Canada. Took them all back to Home Depot before the 'decorative' clause on the return policy expired. Was refunded in full. Wouldn't buy them again, or recommend unless you're stinging them indoors.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jeremy Barely lasted a year
I purchased 2 packs and ran them on the roof. The first year 2 bulbs went out. The next year I put them up they were malfunctioning terribly, some lights on one pattern others on another pattern. Checked BBB and the company has awful reviews. Too expensive for such a short life.

Rated 1 out of 5Â 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.
