    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - It functions
    - Plenty of LEDs
    - Luminosity is ok
    - Longer wire length than expected
    - Control box gives plenty of display modes

    Cons:

    - LEDs can break loose (but repairable)
    - Still lights up if a LED fails
    - Materials used are not top of the bill

    OtherThoughts:

    Purchased this item to use for Christmas lighting. Came in a clear plastic bag twirled up like pic #8. I was however amazed at the length when untwisted (I do not know if its 18m, but its long). The LEDs runs over a single wire, so no loop back.
    The connector is by European standards flimsy. I have used this discontinually, so hard to say how it would perform in stress conditions.
    After a year, it had just the following issues:
    - 1 LED failed
    - 1 LED had wire partially broken off
    I was able to repair the latter issue by resoldering the wire to the LED

    Bottomline:

    Value for money, compared to the traditional Christmas lighting.
