Just the right size for limited space
August 20, 2017
Got this tree at a discount for our beach house where we will spend the holidays. So pleased about the quality and look of this tree. Comes in four easy to assemble pieces, to include the stand; a bottom and mid section; and topper. Takes a little time to shape the tree ( meaning bending the branches into place) but afterward, looks really nice and realistic. Highly recommend!
Delighted with this tree
January 12, 2017
We've never had an artificial tree so I was skeptical about getting one, but I love this tree. It is easy to put up and take down, and once up and all the branches are arranged, it simply looks fabulous. Visiting family members who have seen it have all commented about how great it looks. The size is perfect for a condo living room. Amazon's price was super. The top section (1 of 3) wobbles a teeny bit when inserted in the "trunk" section, but that did not affect anything as the tree stood straight when decorated. A small, slim piece of cardboard would probably solve that. As for the very top of the tree, it is as pictured. We have an angel that goes on top and we simply insert the top of the tree into the glass tube on which the angel rests. Our angel is very lightweight. I imagine if you have something heavy to go on top, that could be a problem. So that is my only caution.
Couldn't be more pleased!
November 19, 2016
Couldn't be more pleased! We needed a thin tree to fit in the corner of our living room, and this one is perfect. We loaded it with lights and ornaments and it is perfect! The base fits in a 2 ft x 2 ft space but still feels like a full tree. Branches are sturdy and we had almost no shedding.
February 9, 2016
I put up 4 big trees this year! This one was so easy! I made it the grandkids tree with tons of old and new kids ornaments! The adults said,"WOW!" Tall and easy to put in place!
Spent 3 years looking for the perfect artificial tree for our apartment
December 9, 2014
Spent 3 years looking for the perfect artificial tree for our apartment. This was the year and this was the tree that did the job! It fits our space perfectly and we are VERY pleased with the fullness of the branches. Although it is not pre-lit, that allowed us to choose our own speciality lights. We used 3 strands of LED lights; since the tree disassembles into 3 sections, we anticipate being able to leave the lights on it for storage. The attached photographs show the tree as we assembled and fluffed the branches; then against the wall; and finally after it was decorated and light.
Even if you don't "overdecorate" your tree like ours, you'll find that this tree is amply full compared to most we examined in the big box stores.
The space from the bookcase to the door frame is just under 32-inches. Our ceiling height is 8-feet. This tree is PERFECT for our space.
I love this tree
November 17, 2014
I love this tree!!! My live Christmas trees for the past two years stopped drinking water, and by the end of the season, I was vacuuming up pounds of brown needles. So messy! So this year I was determined to have less of a mess and began my fake tree search in earnest.
I could have bought a slim tree from Balsam Hill, but I was balking at the price. I was so glad I found this tree on Amazon, and for less than a hundred dollars.
What you should know: this tree takes a bit of fluffing, but if you put some Christmas tunes on and grab some hot chocolate (or a hot toddy!) to get into the spirit, you will barely notice. It took me about 35 minutes to get my tree looking just the way I like it. It took my husband longer just putting on the lights (6 strands!). We are really serious about our trees!
Decorated, we both agreed that it was our best tree ever! We lit up our pine and fir scented candles and stared into the tree.
beer pong balls and these lights will take your outdoor space to a whole new level!
October 17, 2015
I used the lights along with beer-pong balls to make my diy outdoor lights. It looks beautiful and adds so much warmth! I really like how cozy my porch looks like. Check out the pictures! I hope it helps!
Great lights. Durable. Bright.
December 17, 2014
I bought these lights and they cover my 7-ft Christmas tree perfectly. There really isn't anything fancy about these. They're bright, easy to install, the light is a zig-zag patteron and the last couple feet don't have any lights (that part runs to your outlet). They seem pretty durable as we dropped them a couple times while decorating our tree and none of the bulbs broke or blew out. I'm anxious to see how well they'll hold up until next year after we take them out of storage.

July 15, 2014
Although I was especially disappointed when 1/3 of my string of lights would not illuminate I was shocked at receiving a full replacement expeditiously from the merchant even though I did not contact him. I did not want to go through all the hassles of a return but simply responded to the Amazon e mail, This is a person who knows how important customer service is !
Warm, natural looking lights
February 16, 2014
I have fond memories of coming down the stairs as a child to see the warm glow of these inefficient and hazardous Christmas lights on the tree, shining down on a heap of presents. Since we moved into our house in 2009, we've been using the awful LED lights on our Christmas tree both to save energy and to prevent living room tree fires. Honestly, I can say that LED lights were the worst decision we ever made as a couple. Christmas just isn't the same when you're looking at tree with blue-tinged lights all over it. This year, four days before Christmas, I broke down and found boxes of these mini lights on Amazon.com and had them shipped to our house. I took down the old LED lights and replaced them with these clear mini lights. The tree looked so much better and Christmas felt warm and cozy again.I highly recommend these lights to anyone who doesn't want to ruin the holiday!
Lots of light.
January 8, 2014
This is a bit of trick as is it actually three sets of 100 not one set of 300. That means to get three hundred in one place you are plugging them into each other which leaves big plugs in the middle of my display. Still they look lovely in the window, and even more impressive--they last a long, long time. I like to put clear lights in my windows all winter to fight the darkness. I put these up around Thanksgiving; it is now january 8 and not one set has quit. I leave them on 24 hours (two sets of of them are outside on a tree). They worked both inside and outside nonstop. I'm very happy with this purchase. I can't believe that are still going strong. I hope they last until Valentine's Day which is when I usually remove my "winter" lights.
We had good luck with these
December 8, 2012
Our area had a very warm weekend right before Thanksgiving and apparently everyone in town was outside putting up their Christmas lights because the following week, it was impossible to find them in the local stores. As per my usual experience, I came home and found them available on Amazon. A click and a couple days later, these showed up on my doorstep.There are 2, 150-light strands which we have never had before. I usually buy 100 or 200 light strands but these were really nice they are right in between those two lengths. We put them on the outside tree and they have worked just fine.There really isn't much to say about holiday lights other than they work or they don't --- in this case, they are working out great.
October 24, 2016
Awesome lights :) just the right amount of length! Would buy again!

June 10, 2016
My husband and I love hanging white Christmas lights around our house to give it a warm and homey feeling. We went to every store around our area and search for lights (out of season) and could never find any, and if we did they were pricey. We have been so happy with these light and have ordered multiple times. We hang them up and connect up to three strands together, and we leave them on 24/7. They last such a long time. We only have to change or fix light bulbs or a whole strand maybe every six months - for the price, it's perfect.

April 2, 2016
Came fast and they look great! I usually double up on my light strands for my cubbies but these were bright enough that just one did the trick.
December 2, 2015
They work and look just as expected! Nice and cheap lights for my tree. This was enough to cover my 3 foot tree. You would probably need multiple strands for a bigger tree. You will also need an extension chord if you want to run them away from an outlet because the lights go right up to the plug.
September 20, 2013
I love these lights to death. I bought my first box last year for my college dorm room, and have used them ever since. I have found that they make great lighting at night--they make the room dim enough for your roommate to go to bed but are still bright enough to give you more than enough lighting to stay up and get your homework done. They lasted me the entire year, and probably would have lasted all this year as well. Sadly, I left them in a storage unit over the summer and didn't pack them up well enough, causing several lights to shatter. That, however, was my own fault. I'm buying two new boxes for this year to replace the ones I used last year. :-)
length of strands
March 2, 2012
Great lights! Wish the description included the length of the strands (24.75 feet). Looking to line the backyard fence for a summer party....had to order one just to see what the length of the starnd actually is.Now can order more.
October 8, 2017
This is a well made quality product. Much nicer than I was expecting.
Just what I was looking for
June 17, 2017
Star is of good quality and larger than I expected. I got an Amazon warehouse deal so it was an awesome price. Only issue is that there was an empty slim jim wrapper in the box with the star. Seriously, Amazon?
May 31, 2017

February 26, 2017
I like the product however it was a little to heavy for the top of my Christmas tree i had to play around with it in order to get it to stay. This is by no means the fault of the products but mine for not taking in consideration that it is all metal. But i still love the product none the less.
I wasn't sure I'd like a topper that didn't light up
December 30, 2015
I wasn't sure I'd like a topper that didn't light up. Turns out, it's not as bad as I thought. I put this on my 7.5 fake tree and it looks great. I had to buy a new topper because my floors aren't level and depending on where I put my tree the 12" topper I current have doesn't fit. This one just fit in the spot I choose this year. If I shifted it any further towards the window not so much. That's OK, I bought a different 8" backup just in case for another year.

Very sturdy tree
December 21, 2016
The tree is exactly as described and people who wrote that it doesn't shed while working with it are correct. The quality is much, much better than what most hobby type stores carry. Easy to work with. Only drawback is that it's more narrow than I'd like and kind of hard to decorate because the branches are so close and its very full. However, I'm used to a large and full tree so this one takes some getting used to. This tree is definitely as advertised and does fit very nicely into a small space. Next year I'll do a different type of decoration on it and I think it might work out much better than using a lot of bulbs and ornaments.
Perfect apartment tree
December 19, 2016
Was so excited to get my new tree!!! My old one was years old and just too short for my apartment ceiling height. But this one fills the space but isn't so wide that it takes up too much room In the corner. Perfect apartment tree! Only issue is that even when it's fully fluffed, it's easy to see thru the branches to the center pole. I ended up having to get bunches of holly and pine to fill in spaces. That aside, I fully recommend this product.
Love this skinny tree!!!
November 30, 2016
We downsized and gave away our traditional huge tree. With our new smaller hone we need a smaller tree. This tree is perfect. It is very full once you fluff all the branches. I only have two complaints:
1) The top portion is a little loose and can lean a little.
2) The way you tighten the stand, it tends to make the whole tree lean a little and is tricky to get just right.
Beautiful tree, brings out your Christmas cheer!
November 19, 2016
Beautiful tree, not as full as my large trees in the past but maybe my fluffing could be better, lol. Love it...you will not be dissappear. I have a small living room with 8 foot ceilings and it fits perfect.
Perfect apartment/small space tree
November 30, 2015
Exactly as pictured. You have to really work the branches to get the tree to look full. But I think this is a perfect tree for a small space. The size and shape is great. Its easy to put together. It says it comes with a storage bag but it doesn't. Very happy with it once lights were on and was decorated.
There are better available.
May 17, 2016
These are slightly expensive when compared to their quality. In three short weeks I've had more than a few bulbs burn out on my set. I'm not sure where the short-circuit is coming from, but it hasn't stopped. I went by Walgreens and they had similarly styled lights for half the price. Worked as advertised for the most part, but might not be worth the money.
Mini Lights That Get The Job DONE
January 18, 2016
Great value. I used these lights to add to my artificial Christmas tree that already had lights attached. All bulbs worked without any adjustments and they didn't tangle easily which was very helpful.Pros:Price: Very good bargain for what you're getting. These lights would have been much more expensive at a Target or Walmart and I didn't have to leave my house to get them.Quality: Very high quality especially for the price. No bulb or plug in issues. Worked great right out of the box.Overall these bulbs were a great addition to my already lit artificial Christmas tree. They really added some good POP to our holiday season.
They all work.
November 29, 2015
I worried a little about buying lights online. However, I checked them right out of the box and they all worked. It seems to me that they aren't as bright as the clear lights that I had on my tree before. They seem to me to have a softer glow.
One strand didn't work
April 5, 2014
I needed several lights for a backyard engagement party. It wasn't my backyard so I didn't have an exact length. This was one event and I didn't have time to go through each light to make sure the strands would work. It was a surprise and we only had an hour to decorate. I bought 2 packs after reading the reviews realizing a few strands would be out. This worked perfectly. One third of a strand didn't work, but the other 2 sets were fine. I ended up leaving the last set that I had and it really covered the whole backyard. I would only buy these for that kind of purpose. If you are looking for Christmas or something pass these up. For our purpose they were perfect.
Have survived the outdoors for 6 months
August 19, 2013
I ordered 4 boxes of these lights to hang outside around my patio. They come in strands of 150 lights, so with two strands per box, I had a total of 8. One strand didn't work upon arrival, but I found some damaged bulbs and replaced them and got it to work. Another strand I couldn't (and still can't) get the end plug to work, but I just used that one last in the line and can't plug anything into it.I've had all the strands hung outside around my patio and around the trees and they still work 6 months later. A few bulbs have broken during some wind storms and getting knocked around, but that's to be expected and it's easy to replace the bulbs with the included extras. For cheap Christmas lights, these are the best/cheapest I've been able to find and they've lasted for 6 months. I plan on buying some more to continue lighting my yard.
Nice deck addition
March 3, 2013
I have a very large deck and I need some extra lighting. I always would string Christmas lights to add light and decor. It was hard to find lights after the holiday season, so I was glad to find these lights. They were all working and they are outdoors in the cold climate and are still illuminated after weeks of use. I was happy to have this as an option. The green background is nice and blends into the deck versus the white you typically see with these lights.
December 24, 2016
have these to help light up my room cause its dark af in here. one of my strings died so i bought these to replace them. have had them for 4 months and there's only 2 dead bulbs. keep in mind i have these lights on a lot because im an extreme night owl and i never leave my room.edit: so i got these in sept of 2016, its now feb 20th 2017 and half the lights just went out, so they lasted almost 6 months, not bad but im going to buy a different brand now to see if they do any better. my room is very dark now while i wait for my new lights lol
December 1, 2016
Easy to apply. It's a 2*50 lights. Got it for one week. So far so good.
A good quality light system.
September 15, 2015
These lights are perfect for routing along the top of my backyard fence. I only power them up once in a while during parties or when we have company in the evenings, but they do work well and I have not had a problem with them. I bought the brown color wire so they would blend with the fence and background.
August 6, 2015
I got these lights for my bedroom and I pinned them on the walls for decoration and extra light. I have had them for almost a year now and haven't had any problems yet. I have had to change out two light bulbs that stopped working but they probably were damaged from when I moved. My only complaint is that if the glass breaks off, it is really hard to pull out the rest of the bulb in order to change it out. I just left it in because I ended up cutting myself from the wire that goes inside the glass but you can't even tell one bulb is out unless you are really staring at the lights. They also do get a little warm after being on for awhile. It is fine for me, since I use them on my walls, but I'm not sure if I would be too comfortable putting them on any fabric or even a tree.
Brightens up my stair case w/ out a glare
June 19, 2014
I use them as night lights on my stair case for my mom and dog who can't see well in the dark. They are just enough to gently eluminate the 13 steps but wouldn't replace a 40 watt bulb (I'll guess half that bright). The string went down the steps once and up once with a little left over to make a touch brighter at the top. All the lights worked in both boxes I purchased.Why only 4 stars? 'cause they were too expensive at over $8 a box.They also have a standard plug at the end to plug in aother set of lights.
Great Product Unreasonably Price
August 15, 2013
We ordered this item in June because it has always been a dream of mine to cover our huge Mimosa trees in white lights to create a spectacular and romantic backyard escape. We had been collecting these lights for over two years to finally get the over 4000 we needed to cover our trees. Once applying the lights we found we were several boxes short and wanting this beautiful scene in time for my birthday we ordered the remaining boxes needed from this company. The lights were beautiful and arrived in a timely manner but I think charging $9.99 per box is a bit much and takes advantage of the consumer who may need mini lights at out-of-season times of the year.
March 17, 2017
Too heavy for artificial trees. The weight or base need adjusting.
March 2, 2017
Pretty glittery star that is difficult to place on top branch of my tree I had to nestle it in between the branches
January 11, 2017
This is a glitter bomb of a tree topper!! I had glitter everywhere after we finally got it on the tree.You get what you pay for. It gets the job done but is nothing spectacular.
Light and Pretty
February 25, 2016
This is just your run of the mill, simple tree top. Nothing crazy, it's nice and sparkly silver with a kind of scrolling design. It doesn't light up - but it is elegant looking. Not too heavy either, it does just fine on the top of a fake tree.
December 22, 2015
This star is really pretty. My one complaint is that it won't sit straight upright without a lot of maneuvering, and then, heaven forbid, if you bump the tree it moves. However, once it is in place it looks great. Also, for smaller trees, it may not fit well or look quite right. My tree is 4.5' tall, and this looks good but it could be a little smaller. It would look much better (and possibly fit better) on a larger tree.
Pretty Design (could use minor improvements)
December 22, 2014
It's bigger than I expected (I know the dimension are right there, and I'm sure they're accurate, but I didn't quite visualize how big this would be!), but it works OK on my 7' tree. Would definitely be more fitting on a larger tree though! Scrollwork is beautiful, glitter could be a bit more holographic/reflective/sparkly - it's more of a matte silver glitter. The drawback there is that it's unlit and not particularly light reflecting - so unless you take a lot of time on a ladder getting lights up to and around this thing, it's a bit dark on top of the tree.

The price is great and shipping was lightening fast
November 13, 2017
The price is great and shipping was lightening fast. But you get what you pay for. Do not let the picture deceive you because the tree isn't the color on the picture. It's more of a hunter green. It's not as filled out either.The end of the "branches" you can see where they have cute them and the metal is exposed. I like it for the most part and it will have to do.
I was disappointed after I fluffed the branches
September 17, 2017
I was so excited to get this artificial tree. Honestly, I was disappointed after I fluffed the branches. The tree is more sparse in reality. Maybe a bunch of lights and decorations will make it look better.
March 18, 2017
Easy to put together but not as full as pictured
Great size but a bit skimpy
February 16, 2017
I have always had a super full large tree and wanted something smaller to fit next to my new front door. I like that it was a perfect size but I was a bit disappointed at the fact that it was a bit skimpy. Even will all the ornaments we have and ribbon running all down it there were sizable holes that I couldn't seem to fill no matter how I moved the branches. I will use it a couple more years but will be on the lookout for a fuller tree in this same size.

December 6, 2016
Once i put the lights and decorations on , it looked noce ,but i was a little worried at first,okay value for the money
November 30, 2016
Pencil tree is right. This one is very slim. If you don't have a lot of space, this is the kind of tree you would need to get. It does take time to adjust the branches so the tree looks full. Yes, you can still see inside, but it's not bad. Adding the lights and ornaments covers any holes.
Bad points - it doesn't seem very stable. It wobbles very easily. The stand is small and flimsy. I'm worried if you place too many ornaments on one side or accidently pull at a branch, the tree will topple over. To be safe, I attached a string and tied it to a hook on the wall.
The needles are also hard and rough. My fingers hurt after adjusting the needles since it took me close to an hour to get it just right. Compared to a tree I purchased over 15 years ago, this one is very poor in quality. The older one I have is the most realistic fake tree I have every seen. The needles are firm but pliable and smooth. I only decided to get a new one because the other tree is big and heavy. I needed something easier to carry and assemble.
Not a bad tree, but not a great one either.
Good thing I purchased two boxes
January 1, 2017
Purchased two boxes of these for our tree since we wanted many sets of lights with one consistent white color. Unfortunately, one string of 100 lights did not work. Good thing I purchased two boxes!
The lights that work are great, but not every set was functional.
December 16, 2015
We bought three boxes (which equals 6 sets of lights). Only 5 out of 6 sets work properly. We needed them right away so returning wasn't an option. The lights that work are as described.
Nice lights; NOT for outdoor use
December 3, 2015
Very nice on my artificial tree.I would give a higher rating but someone listed as "seller" said these could be used outdoors, but the instructions that come with the lights say seasonal lights should NOT be used outdoors unless the packaging explicitly says they are for outdoor use. The packaging of these lights does NOT say they are for outdoor use.
January 28, 2015
These are o.k. So far they have lasted through 1 season outdoors. We'll see how long they last but even if they last 1 year they are a good value As is with all these light strings, most bulbs are not interchangeable with other light strands. The sockets are in different configurations.
One worked, one half worked
April 7, 2014
I bought these for some cheap outdoor lighting for our wedding reception, and they were okay. One of them worked great; the other worked for the first half of the strand. We swapped out bulbs and stuff, but apparently the light socket itself was broken. But after the wedding we used the working strand for Christmas and it was just fine, so I assume the other was just a manufacturing defect. I guess I could have returned them, but we didn't really need them post-wedding so the point was kind of moot.
December 24, 2012
I won't say that I am unhappy, because it does the job, however there are some issues.The light bulb are extremely fragile. I use 6 sets for my outdoor christmas decoration, however many of the bulbs blew up or got broken with a light hit.Things to remember:- It might be the best choice for the price. Does the job. You can plug up to 3 set (total of 450 bulbs) together.- Fragile!!- Only 2 replacement bulbs per set!! I ended up using the bulbs that are used to make the set blink...Tip of the day: Don't buy the 5-bulbs replacement pack which is for $1. It is basically $0.2/bulbs (if no shipping!). buy a 100-count light set ($8 and free amazon shipping). It will cost you $0.08/bulb... and you will have 102 extra bulbs! I already broke 20 of them so...you would be good to go for 2-3 christmas more!
Pretty, but don't last long
September 9, 2017
They last about 3-4 months outdoors. Though they're very pretty, they're cheap, and when one bulb goes out, the whole string goes out so you can't tell which one needs to be replaced. Still, I replace them every 4 months or so, because even the more expensive ones are poorly made, too.
LOVE BUT BREAK
November 6, 2016
Love these lights but they don't last long. Often half the strand burns out.
priced well but lots of lights out
December 29, 2015
Average lights but a lot of them were out when I received it. I bought 3 boxes and between the 3 boxes over 20 lights were burnt out the first time I plunge fit in. Each pack comes with a few replacement lights but I did not have anywhere close to enough to replace all of the ones out. Luckily, the strand still worked with a few out here and there. I would not buy them again for this reason but they got the job done this holiday season and were priced well.
Prefer white cord and and a switch
December 24, 2015
Works just like expected, but would have prefered white cord since it's only to light up my porch year-round due to insufficient lighting. Also, it only turns on when you plug it in or turn off the fuse on the circuit breaker, which it what I've been doing because I don't want to leave it on all night and I don't want to unplug it when it's dark. I'm just being a little picky; it's probably fine for a tree, but I choose not to have one.
Lights Were Out Before They Were Completely On The Tree
January 10, 2015
Fresh out of the box, all the lights were lit well when the strand was plugged in. After testing them, I wrapped the lights around the Christmas tree. By the time the lights were on the tree, half the bulbs were no longer lighting. Since they were replacement lights for the bottom the tree, we just explained it away and kept the lights on (with the very bottom of the tree not lit). Next Christmas season we are going to switch to a strand of LED lights for enhanced resilience. Rating this product 3 stars because the batch received may have been bad, however cannot rate it higher since half of the lights burned out in the first hour out of the box.
Is this a joke??
December 10, 2012
I expected since I paid a low price that I probably wouldn't get the best quality.. When I took them out of the box, the first thing I noticed was how loose and messy they looked. Oh! Because the strands are hardly twisted!! Its a three piece strand. Two of the strands seem to be twisted alright in most spots (not all) but the third is so loose it catches branches while trying to put them on the tree. Its just a mess! They work fine and of course look beautiful once on the tree but I would say get a better set. Its worth it...Also, I would say I have a medium size tree. For this size two strands is for sure needed. I would say only a mini tree or getting these for another use would allow you to only buy one.
September 20, 2017
I liked it, but too much glitter.
September 1, 2017
December 27, 2016
It's pretty but because it's not a solid star it can kinda get lost. Wish it had some lights.
Really pretty, but be prepared for a lightweight star with the silver falling off in chunks
November 29, 2016
Really pretty, but be prepared for a lightweight star with the silver falling off in chunks. Star wasn't secured in plastic packaging very well, so arrived with silver chunks in packaging too. I'll get at least a year of enjoyment out of it.
We will try to figure out a way to attach it before assembling next yr but the top branch doesn't look long or sturdy enough to
December 8, 2014
Too heavy for 9' artificial tree. Granted the tree was already up. We will try to figure out a way to attach it before assembling next yr but the top branch doesn't look long or sturdy enough to hold it upright and keeping it straight will be an issue. The Star itself is nice and attractive but didn't work for our needs.
Pretty, but not the best quality
February 9, 2014
I like this star & did use it on my Christmas tree this past season. Its very pretty, but the glitter has already started to come off. So a little disappointed in the quality, and it was a bit challenging to get it positioned on top of the tree.

Not a great buy. I had to cut and bend the metal pieces so they would fit together and it took almost an hour just to put it together. When I went to put it away I couldn't get each piece apart. I won't buy from this company again. Cheap quality.
Don't waste your money
January 30, 2017
Such a cheap tree. The picture is probably photo shopped. The limbs are sparse and the needles are the cheap plastic that looks terribly unnatural even when fluffed. I was expecting a midgrade fake tree, the kingswood fir is a step above something you would go pick up at a thrift store. I had to double check my order to make sure I hadn't bought a used tree. Turns out its just cheaply made.

After unpacking it and putting it together, realized that one of the branches were broken.. didn't want to bother with putting it back in the box and mailing it back. Very disappointing!!
Really disappointed in this tree
December 1, 2015
Really disappointed in this tree. Just was not what I was expecting. I was in need of a smaller tree this year because my husband had an accident and was not able to get my large tree out of storage. Could be my disappointment is because I am used to a much larger tree. Maybe next year will be back to normal.
After reading reviews of poor customer service from this company
November 29, 2014
I'm very frustrated with this tree! I was excited about it after reading mostly positive reviews of it, but I seem to have a wrong section with mine. My tree top has a square bottom that should be secured with the middle section's pole. However, my middle section has nothing for the square part to secure itself into. Instead, it just has a regular pole. So, my top section is hanging to the side. After reading reviews of poor customer service from this company, I'm reluctant to try to get a replacement part. I had thought about paying more and getting a Balsam Hill tree, and I wish that I had. This is very disappointing.
June 11, 2017
Arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged. However, one of the three-hundred strands lit when pre-tested and then only half the lights lit after I had put it in my tree. I just left it as it was too much work to take it back out. Very disappointing though. The other boxes continue to work just fine.
March 9, 2017
Arrived with half the string unlit
one bad bulb takes out the whole string!
December 19, 2014
I ordered four sets of these mini Christmas lights, from two different shippers. I checked them all before decorating by plugging all strings together and into power. They are pretty!One string wouldn't light due to a bad bulb, and to find the bulb I had to replace each one until the string lit up again. Tedious waste of time. Now after two weeks on the tree, the entire tree is out. There is no way I can swap out one bulb on a string of 1200 lights already wrapped around branches. My recommendation is to buy a different product entirely, one that won't take out the entire string for one burnt out bulb.
When this product arrived the box was open. On ...
December 7, 2014
When this product arrived the box was open. On one of the strands, the last 50 lights did not work. This was not due to a defective bulb since changing out the bulbs did not help. What was odd was then when we connected the next strand to it, those lights all worked, despite the 50 nonworking lights in between. Returning for a refund.Also worth nothing is that in the short period during which we were testing the lights they got incredibly hot. I suppose that is to be expected since they are not LED. Worth it for people to know.
not impressively assembled.
February 26, 2013
this is three 100 light sections spliced, when one light fails in any of the groups you have a blackout of 100 lights at a time. then, you have to find the outtage. there are several spare bulbs included and some fuses. as a whole, the construction seems very cheap, minimal precautions. my copy came with an outtage that after checking each light could not be found, leading to the assumption at least two bulbs are out. this is tough because identifying that those bulbs would require a lot of time. the light quality seems nice, i have them outdoors, will see how long they last. i will next seek out a higher quality light set.
apparently previously returned item
August 11, 2012
I ordered 4 sets of these lights for outdoor decoration. One box had been opened taken out of the box before. Just happens to be the set that doesn't work. At first about one 3rd of the lights were blinking on and off every few minutes...now they don't work at all. Contacted the dealer but was told I would have to deal with Amazon instead. I guess I have to pay to return this item just like somebody had done before and they just shipped it out to me.Not happy!
August 24, 2017
As other reviews have stated, they tend to go half hour fairly quickly.
LASTED 2 MONTHS =(
July 10, 2017
The shipping was fast! The lights are used everyday in my sons room. I ordered them on May 7th and by July 10th half the string is burnt out =(

May 28, 2017
I used these for 'year round' decoration inside a canister. They died after 4 months with no warning at all- no dimming or blinking as one of the other customers suggested. I will not buy them again.
April 27, 2017
One of these strands has worked well for about 4 months with no issues. However, the other strand's electrical box that plugs into the outlet has fallen apart, resulting in one of the electrical tongs falling out of the product. This has not came from improper of heavy use, either. I have never seen this happen and am disappointed in this product, because now one of my strands is not able to be used.
Buy a different brand
April 1, 2017
These lights didn't even last for a full year.
January 6, 2017
One string went out after being up only 2 weeks. These little light strings are notorious for failing due to ONE lite that is impossible to find. Going with another type of light for my outdoors in future.
October 21, 2017
It is cute but the glitter is everywhere and it was peeling right out of the box.
April 6, 2017
It was too heavy for my tree and kept falling over.
December 28, 2016
The tree star is pretty, but I'll have to think of what do do with it, it didn't fit my tree. All it did was lean over when put on top of the Wrong size? . It would cost more than it was worth to send it back.
Too big and top-heavy for my 6ft art. tree!
December 12, 2016
This was gorgeous and modestly priced, but I couldn't use it on my 6ft tree or even as a table topper because it is so top-heavy. So bummed abt this:/ Back it goes for a refund.
Don't buy unless you love glitter
October 13, 2016
I knew this came with glitter, but like most of my other decorations, I would think it would stick more to the star than it did. While pretty, it basically left a glitter bomb all over my tree and living room. I have not yet decided if I will be using it again.
The ornament is really nice looking, but was too heavy
December 30, 2015
The ornament is really nice looking, but was too heavy. The tree couldn't support it at the top without it leaning. Our tree was 7-foot tall and sturdy, so this really shouldn't have been a problem. The delivery was quick and it was packaged safely, though.

Not a Merry Christmas with such an ugly tree
November 26, 2016
I always read comments before I purchase anything. And I should have stuck with my gut. So many reviews said how this tree was not full and had several gaps that even ornaments couldn't cover. Well, they are right. The tree I received looks absolutely nothing like what is pictured. It's horible. It also leans, I cannot figure out how to make it stand straight. It's also suppose to be unlit. But I received a pre lit muti-color tree, which is not what I ordered. Called the sellers and they said this tree doesnt come in the option of unlit, blamed it on Amazon for listing it that way. The return shipping was crazy, so I kept it, and cut the lights off, which were very badly placed on the tree anyway. Since i did that now i cannot send it back. I see pictures on here of people's tree and they're so happy, well mine doesn't look anything like theirs, so I guess maybe I got a dud. What a waste of my money. Extremely dissatisfied with my tree. My first tree I've had in over 7 years, and our first Christmas in our new home, and I'll cringe everytime I look at it and be unhappy.

Received the tree with two missing branches
No amount of fluffing could save this train wreck.
November 20, 2016
I'm not insanely fussy about my Christmas tree. I just want no big bald spots & no wire showing. This tree looked nothing like the picture. No amount of fluffing helped. Bald spots, bare wire very visible on branches, flimsy limbs, you name the Christmas tree sin and it was present. There's also a huge gap between the second and third pieces where there's no branches. Fluffed and arranged and fluffed some more hoping to make it work because the size was perfect. No dice. I have no idea what tree was photographed but it's not the one I received. It looked like the unkempt, mangy cousin of some of the customer pictures posted. Charlie Brown would groan at this one. As an added insult, the piece that goes into the pole for the top part was also cracked on arrival. It's going back.
don't buy this tree. the picture is not the tree you receive!
October 11, 2014
this tree looks absolutely nothing like the picture and is one of the worst looking trees I have ever purchased. on top of that it had a limb missing. I would send it back but shipping it would cost more than it is worth. I wouldn't have given it one star but it was required.

Received Tree with Branch missing. Called customer serv. they said I cannot receive part until next Fall. Wow. Are they serious. No thank you! On hold for about 15 minutes as well. Tree not worth it.
December 12, 2016
Don't buy!!! After 3 days of tree being lit only an hour or two at night, came home after long day at work. Time to relax, after 15 minutes lights go completely out. I've got a huge tree with over 2,000 lights, had to troubleshoot each strand of lights, taking off ornaments, crawling under the tree to find out it was these new lights. I've had lights for years, no problem, but these are garbage!!!!
December 24, 2015
These lights suck...do not I repeat do not buy them...my kids and I put them up and took hours two decorate the tree...plugged them in and nothing ..plugged in another outlet...nothing..took them off and tried two more outlets nothing...so now since no one has any lights we don't have a lite tree...I bought two orders and not one light works...I'm so pissed...Do Not Buy ...unless you want your money taken...shame on this seller...shame on you ..and at Christmas no less...
Looked great till rained on.
October 9, 2015
Will not work outside. Rain is making them die as I watch. Pretty while they lasted.
Worst lights I've ever purchased.
December 22, 2014
I purchased at least 7 of these, and in one week every single one melted at the plug and is a complete loss. they were plugged into different plugs and extension cords so i know it wasn't something i did. All that work doing the trees at my office are down the drain and no refund.
Cheap lights are no bargain if they do not work.
December 19, 2014
One third of the lights did not light, despite an hour spent replacing bulbs in a vain effort to try to get it to work. The other two-thirds of the bulbs lit and looked beautiful. Very frustrating and disappointing to save few bucks and then have my time wasted. To get my hour of life back waste o these lights I would pay double the price. The one saving grace is that Amazon return process is easy to use The refund does not compensate me for my time, but at least we won't have this useless junk cluttering our house. Cheap lights are no bargain if they do not work.
Didn't work out of the box
July 20, 2014
These are the kind of lights where, if one bulb is bad, half the string is dark. I had to go through replacing each bulb one at a time to find it before I got them to cast their cheery light properly. In the grand scheme of it's not a huge deal, but it is the first time I've ever had a string of lights not work out of the box. The Amazon seller was NOMA/INLITEN-IMPORT.
November 8, 2017
Used around my bedroom, but the lights started blowing out within a few months of purchasing. Replaced the single blown out lights, but then the whole string blew out and there are smoke/burn marks by each little light. Not worth the safety concerns I now have about this product. Lights would only be on for about 20-30 minutes a night about every other night.
Not staying lit up for me..:(
May 15, 2017
These would have been amazing, but 1/4 of the strand doesn't light up after only being used for an hour. I already have them wound into a back yard lighting situation in one of my trees, so I can't return them without undoing the ENTIRE batch of lights that I have on the tree, so I suppose I just have to deal with it.
Cheap, poor construction
December 3, 2016
The light sockets don't properly make reliable connections with the lights, causing unwanted flickering whenever the lights move. Half the string almost never lights up because of this issue. I've tried all the replacement bulbs in the offending sockets (both the regular and flashing ones), but they either don't work at all or just have the same issue, leading me to believe these strings are simply poorly constructed.
Look for Another Light
January 16, 2014
Time was short just before the holidays and I bought five of these strands because most stores were already out. Two of the strands had the problem that many reviewers mentioned, the lights went on momentarily and then half of the strand went dark. A careful examination showed the wire connections to the lights to be iffy. Evidently straightening the strands out pulls any weak connection between the lights and the wires loose. I managed to push one loose wire back in to its light and that got it going again, but I wouldn't use it because it could be a safety hazard.Three light strands did work properly, but I would suggest that people look elsewhere because you can't be certain what strand will work. Or if it will keep working.
Plain box, poor quality - not bright.
November 11, 2013
Since these lights came in plain white cardboard boxes there is no way to tell if they are what was ordered or not. Amazon has indicated any dissatisfaction should be directed toward the manufacturer, (these are imported). Amazon does not stand behind this product. (Don't know why they offer it on their site). These lights are dim and are not bright at all. They burn out quickly. I should have returned them immediately. May be old stock!
All dead after little over one month
February 10, 2013
Delivered on Tuesday January 8, 2013 - some went dead last week - all went dead last night (Sunaday, February 10, 2013). Differnt lights I got in Costco lasted almost two years
December 13, 2016
I ordered this star and when it arrived some of the swirly wires were all bent and out of shape. This appears to be a defect from the manufacturer because the swirls were welded in the incorrect place and then it had been painted and packaged. If it had been in perfect condition it would have been a 5 stars. It is very heavy duty and the silver sparkling paint stands out just enough but not to much.
I would return it if I knew others would be any better.
December 9, 2016
Our tree top is not thick enough for holder which is very large. We are trying to figure out how to make this star stand up straight on our tree top. I would return it if I knew others would be any better.
December 9, 2016
Ornament was missing a lot of glitter and part of it looked rusty and brown. Ugly. Period.
December 8, 2016
Poorly made. Was very upset to receive this star . Corner of the star was missing paint and glitter .
Didn't look like the picture
December 7, 2016
Didn't look like the picture. The star is very, very glittery and got glitter everywhere. I'm keeping it because I need a topper for my tree, but I would caution others to look elsewhere if they do not want a flimsy star that sheds glitter all over their home.
November 29, 2016
Too heavy for a tree. Kept tipping over. Returned it
