This is an intro video to a 3 video set reviewing different types of LED Christmas lights. This intro will give a quick overview of these 3 types so you can decide which ones suit you and if you want to watch the detailed video reviews.

In the detailed videos (linked below) I do go into the electronics as well as features and performance.

    Todd, bought a set of “Chasers” from the Symphony of lights brand. These also had a Try Me Button which I tested in the store. When I got home and tried them using the provided wall wart, every third of forth light in the string failed to light during the chase sequence. Plugged the Try Me Button circuit back in and they test fine. What do you think is going on here? I took this first set back and planned to get two more sets, since they were only $6.49 each but only if I could test them in the store first. One set had the same “missing light” syndrome, and the other set wouldn’t light up at all using the AC adapter. Needless to say I gave up on their “Chaser model” right there.

    @Hank, These are made in China and as cheap as chips I’m sure. Britestar seen my video and sent me some newer sets. I was happy they didn’t flicker because they had real power conditioning this time but the construction was still horrible. I wouldn’t be surprised if most fail before you even got them home. As for it working with the “try me” button I find that very strange. I would have to investigate.
