That's why I ordered 6 sets as well! :lol::)

I'm glad I posted a question asking about these lights and caused so many people to spend money! :lol:

I'm glad you asked as well. :) 

I might have ordered a few more strands because I'm a bigger sucker for free shipping than Mega Arch. :D:lol::ph34r:

Not sure yet JR. Have to start thinking about that. If so, I'll have a "special" hotel setup for you. :D:ph34r:

Just ordered 20 sets of the 50ct. Considering the fail rate of the xenon strobes I've been using I think these will be a good investment in the long haul!

I received my sets from Christmas Light emporium a week ago.  I have not plugged them into a controller, but into a wall outlet, they work fine.  They start firing almost immediately.  At first, all 25 lights fire at pretty much the same time, but within a couple seconds, they are fairly random.

Thanks Jim, that's nice to know.

Hopefully I'll get mine soon.

I got mine(4 strings)  a few days ago and plugged them into the wall outlet. All flashed nicely, then after 10 min.  1 bulb started flashing slower (longer ON and OFF), then it went out.

No spare bulbs included.  No biggie, but DO plug them in for more than a few seconds it takes to see if they 'just work'

Happy to report that I'm now at 37 minutes and all strobes operating properly plugged into a wall outlet.

Tony, and others, how many strands do you use and how do you use them?  Example- Mega Tree, how big is your tree, how many strands of strobes and did you string them with the mega tree strands or just random.  Thanks to this thread I now have to spend more money.

Yes, Only on and off. Fades will destroy them.

anyone have video, can see this adding some "pop" to our shows and not as huge as the xeon strobes we use.
