EXCELLENT QUALITY AND EFFECT + RELIABLE
on 9 December 2012
Having been disappointed with similar purchases in the past, I was not expecting much. However, the items arrived quickly from the supplier and I was immediately impressed with the quality. They came well packaged and ready to go. Once hung, they shone with an intense white light (not with a blue or off-white tinge as many do) and the controller was easy to use. It also reverted to the last setting on switching back on, something that others don't always do. I did have a problem with another 5m string (the cable) but it was resolved immediately by the company - thanks to Shaun - and all was well. The acid test will be whether they work OK next year but I would certainly recommend these lights and Brightlightz; the company is well named!
Update: The lights have now been up for over a month during some of the wettest, coldest and general awful weather on record and they are still working and, as importantly, haven't deteriorated or discoloured in any way. Very impressed with the quality and thoroughly recommended.
Update 2: After 37 days and in the region of 340 hours of use, the lights remained clear and bright to the end and are now safely stored until next Christmas. a few of the light units did show signs of rusting inside their sleeves but the effect was minimal and visually acceptable. Well worth paying the extra money for and I intend to get another set.
Update 3 - a year on: Having used the two sets of lights for two seasons (the 2013 period being for a whole month for 8-hours a day), the controllers started to play up, with one ceasing to work completely. Without much optimism, I contacted the company late on 2 Jan to have an almost instant response saying, 'no problem', I'll send new ones'! Shaun once again came to the rescue. Awaiting the items now but I have every faith they will arrive quickly. Quite outstanding service from the company and, I will add, the lights look virtually as good as new; no rusting of the metal parts. Most impressed and if I could give 6 stars, I would. (Note: The new sets arrived on 4 Jan - outstanding service!!!!)
