I've been looking for LEDs to put around my pool enclosure/patio and thought these might look good. But the picture and description on the website were not even close to what I received. The ad says the dimensions are 4x4x14. In reality, they are 3x3 and only 5 1/2 inches tall. Actually, I am glad to see they weren't really tall. Also, the picture in the ad makes you think the entire lantern lights up. But in reality, only the bulb lights up and they end up looking like Christmas lights. I fixed this by disassembling each lantern and spraying the insides of the plastic sides with window frosting. When I reassembled them, I had to put some glue on the top of the sides so they wouldn't fall apart in the wind. The small plastic tabs that are supposed to hold them together are terrible. But after my mods, I will say I'm very pleased with them. I can't recommend them "as is" to anyone, but if you don't mind doing some work to them, you might be happy with them. I also thought they were too close together (about 12 inches). I have about 80 feet of rail to do, so I would have needed to buy 11 sets. I didn't really want to spend nearly $400, so I cut the wires in between each light and soldered in an additional 16 inches of lamp cord between each one so each string is now about 16 feet long. Now I can do the entire area with 5 sets instead of 11. One other disappointment is that they do NOT provide any extra bulbs. I realize LEDs are supposed to last a long time, but I've had other LEDs that didn't live up to that. And if one does go out, it appears I'll have to buy another full set of lights just to have extra bulbs. Each bulb flashes independently so it's hard to get a good picture, but I'm attaching a picture of one set "as received" and another set I've modified. I also have a link to a YouTube video showing them in action.

The string is only 60 inches. It is fragile; globes fall off easy. One bulb stopped working within 72 hours. Product value to price is terrible.

Nice lights used on camper awning. Covers fell off when taking out of box. Easy fix with some glue, but expected more
