This is my first year doing LOR and I love it! Me and the wife are already planning out next years add ons

Heres my main questions im wanting to buy 6 more controllers and womdering if I need to wait and buy during a sale being said I know lor only has a few sales per year....

And also Im going to tri color leds setup on my windows doors and roof

Do I wait and spend the money from a quality vendor or just buy from target when they go on sale like the rest of my lights?

Just wanting some experienced feedback I dont want to keep buying from big box stores and then in a few years have crapped out leds and wish id spent my money on a more commercial setup

Thanks guys

I would personally recommend purchasing from a quality vendor. I've got nothing against the big-box stores, and people here on the forums have had very good experiences with the LEDs purchased from said stores.

Wait for the April sale for your controllers and buy lights from one of the top 2 or 3 on-line vendors. It cost a little more, but the quality is much better they dim much better they are just plain very much worth the added cost.

Spring Sale = Large Discounts, Limited Quantities. (Some items sell out in 60 seconds or less.)

Summer Sale = Not as large of a discount as the Spring sale, but unlimited inventory.

The Target RGB ribbon is IP68, which is the better ribbon.  Menards carries it also.  If the after Christmas sales are good, snag up on it.  Price on ebay for the IP68 weather proofing to see what price you need to get the ribbons locally.  The Ip65 ribbon you find cheap on ebay you have to lay it in a bead of low odor silicon.

Wait for sales on controllers.

I'd definitely wait for the sales, the savings will add up if you're getting 6 controllers.

I've bought a lot of lights from Lowes, GE brand, and they've worked well, can't complain at all.  But if I compare them to other quality vendors I've bought from, I believe there's a big difference is performance and overall color.  I've picked up quite a bit from vendors like Holiday Light Express and they have some nice lights.  Much better quality, color and performance in my opinion.  And they are priced relatively the same as some of the other LED lighting at big box stores.  Good sales too in the spring/summer months to watch out for, can pick up a ton of lights at great prices.

All the popular LED vendors will start their pre-sale advertising around Christmas, with the pre-sales being in January. Substantial savings. I have been extremely pleased with HLE's quality, prices, customer service, and warranty.
