Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Isaac Awesome Lights!!!
I have had these lights for two years now, and yes they move slowly and are dark half of the time, but they look amazing. The lights are extremely bright (hurts to look directly at them). They are one sided to enhance the brightness just remember to face the side with the screw hole towards your house and away from the street. I have read reviews that water has leaked into the icicles and caused rust, so i drilled a small hole on the bottom of each icicle (which was over 50 holes) so if water got in, it would just drain out without damaging the electrical components. Strings are fairly short but usually 3 strings will make you house look super amazing. The cords are thick and white which is good for durability, icicles will not break if dropped or stepped on because they are thick and heavy.
NOTE: These lights need a mate.
what i mean by this is putting lights with the icicles so they aren't alone. it makes the effect look much better. for white icicles, try using blue or multi colored lights, and for multi colored sets use multi colored or blue lights.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by guitarman They look great but....
The cascading lights look great however they are too close together (about 12") to effectively display on a tree or other item. Also there is a front and back to each icicle and you can only see the lights from one side. Trying to get each icicle to display the correct side is very difficult as you have to twist the wires to have the icicle face forward. Also I'd rather the wires were green versus white. I first tried them on my Christmas tree and the white cords look terrible so I'm using them now to decorate my outside tree and they look great at night. I was pleased with the quality of the light set and I would expect it to last many seasons.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Returned - Never Worked
I bought this right before the kids arrived for the holidays - set them up, plugged them in and nada... zilch, nothing. Changed sockets, changed fuses and still nothing. Very disappointing.
But, Home Depot stood 100% behind the product and refunded my money without question and apologized for the inconvenience.

Loved these lights! They were sturdily built and hopefully will provide twinkling light for many years. I love the way they look at a distance, like the icicles are melting!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JollyElf Disappointing
These lights are very disappointing. They are mostly dark with the lights running down the icicle occasionally. Overall, 2 to 4 of the icicles are illuminated at any time and only about 1/2 the LEDs are lit at a time when the icicle is on. It is very dim. These would be better if all the lights were normally on with occasional dark dripping down the icicle, but that isn't how they work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NotHappy angry, expensive, great looking, bad quality.
I bought these lights loving them. Love the look and everything about them. This is my third season with them on my house. We put them out early December and take them down early January. 2 strands are broken. The wires going into the iciles snap and icicles break off after wind blows them around a bit. We now have 2 strands of no lights and at least 1-2 icicles per strand that look like they may do the same. I paid $250 for these lights and they should last more than 2.5 months outside. Bad quality.

These lights are just mesmerizing to watch! Just a fantastic light show effect! Right after I got mine, they went out of stock, so I plan to add to what I have next Christmas.
