If the lights are for next year I would wait for the sales coming up after the first of the year. There are several good companies that will post here about their sales. Personally, I use CDI but htere are several good, reputable ones here. I avoid the big box stores for my LED's as I don't know the quality ofthem. The pre-sale lights are very good quality!

Both recommendations are good for LEDs but I would put my vote for CDI. I have LEDs from both, some of which are on the house year round, and the Holiday light express had a higher failure rate. The ones from CDI seemed to be sealed better. I honestly can't remember having to change out CDI lights.

That's case pricing. They don't do individual strings.

But I agree that CDI's prices are higher than probably all others.

Phew ok hahahaha didnt see that. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It would be nice and fair to CDI if you also included there are "12 strings" for that price, not to forget you can't get the 33 foot strings in big box stores.

So compare the length of light strands to what big box stores have, not CDI's 33 footers.

Also, CDI is having a big sale next month so it will be a better deal.

I guess having a heart attack as stated in your OP (purchasing big box store lights) isn't as big of a deal as paying a little more for MUCH better quality and direct customer service.

Yep, gotcha.

I was posting at the same time you made your confession.

I don't see having a heart attack a laughing matter (as you hahaha in your OP) as my father passed away "1 year ago tomorrow" of one.

Just be careful of pointing other company's products without providing ALL the details.

And I'm Santa's Helper, not Santa.

Please consider CDI's outstanding service. Last Saturday I emailed Paul regarding a failed strand (one out of 144). On Tuesday, I had a brand new strand in my possession and it didn't cost me a cent. Outstanding. I realize that everyone's budget is different, but the extra is worth it to me.
