Beautiful, love the option to dim the brightness
Very high quality lights. Bought them for my son for his NYC apartment balcony. Beautiful, love the option to dim the brightness, have had these same lights on my New England deck and they've survived the winter of 2015! Highly recommended.
7/2016: addendum to my earlier review. For some reason, the adapter to this set of lights stopped working. I contacted the company to see if I could buy a replacement without purchasing a whole new string of lights. Instead, the company shipped out a new set free of charge- what fantastic customer service!! This is a wonderful company to deal with, completely professional and so pleasant. I repeat my 5 star vote.

Absolutely wonderful !
I love these lights! I live in a small condo with a big black fireplace, witch I do not use. I have brightened up the "black Hole" by adding a large mirror inside and using the lights to brighten up the place. It looks beautiful! I can use them now as holiday decoration or just to brighten up my home for myself and visitors.
Thank you for the wonderful lights! With these lights and mirror, it has transformed the " black hole " into a now beautiful area in my new home!!

very nice lights for holiday or other festive lighting. The remote adds versatility.
The lights were arrived on time and as advertised.
These are great. They're 5V lights that can be attached to a USB charger. I don't know what the power requirement is (haven't looked), so don't know what power rating is needed, or if they can run from a USB in a PC.
The remote communicates to the control unit (which can be installed between the light string and the power supply, or omitted if all you want is 100% brightness all the time) and works fairly well. The range is slightly limited and spotty, but works for inside the room.
Via the remote, you're able to select a variety of brightness and/or flashing modes. I rarely use anything other than one brightness at a time, but it's nice to know it's available.
If I wind up doing lights around my windows, I'll be using these lights.
One last thing: the lights are a mix of white and yellow-white. barely noticable, but if you're looking for only solid white, or yellow-white, you should look elsewhere. If not, I think you'll really enjoy these lights. I'll be buying more for next year.

on 2015-11-20 The perfect string lights for your tent.
We discovered these via camping friends who use them in their tent, and wanted some for our Ozark Trail 20' x 10' Instant Cabin Tent Ozark Trail 10 Person 3-room Instant Cabin Tent
Now, the tent's FOOTPRINT may be 20 x 10, but we're stringing the lights along the ceiling line, not the floor line. A quick-and-dirty measure looked to be 40-45 feet, so I ordered a 40' string. Turns out I did some good eyeballing; the 40' string is just a few inches short of making the perimeter.
My friends have been using these in their tent for over a year now with no problems, and since the strands are so thin and light they don't even take them down to pack up the tent. I hope ours hold up so well. They're absolutely the best non-battery electrical lighting for a tent... super light, super thin, dimmable, with a REMOTE, for crying out loud... and they were even easy to install. I had worried that it would be a real hassle to get them put up, but it took ten carefully-placed, small safety pins and about fifteen minutes, and VOILA. I couldn't more highly recommend.
PS: If you're wondering, that's an inflatable sofa-bed INTEX® Realtree Queen Size Pull Out Inflatable Sofa 68566AY
. *EDIT* that pull-out inflatable sofa leaked from the first use and I wouldn't recommend it at all :(

Gorgeous, dainty lights with dimming option and remote control.
These lights are beautiful. First, I was amazed that 60 feet of lights could come in such a small box. The lights are dainty and absolutely gorgeous. I was able to plug them in right away and test them with the remote control, and everything is perfect. I was inspired to buy these after seeing my sister's living room; she lights her living room with Christmas lights around the top of the walls. I first shopped for Christmas lights, but then stumbled across these, and they seem more sophisticated, and I was excited about the remote control option. I am finishing a remodel of my bedroom, and this will be how I'll light this room. They give off great light at 100%, and can be dimmed for nicer ambiance. The flashing options are interesting, but I don't think they'd be something I'd use in the bedroom! Maybe if you use these on a Christmas tree or other commercial use where you want to draw attention to whatever the lights are on. I'm eager to install these.

Ordering more!!! LOVE!!!
These lights are so amazing! I love how I can bend and move them around as I like, and the lighting effect is really something to see. The dimmer and remote are brilliant!!!

Cute and easy to use, but remote breaks
FYI everyone, the sellers website says that there’s a 1 year warrantee on them (at least, it did when mine broke), but I had to send their customer “care” team a screenshot of the website before they would admit that there is a guarantee on it, and replace the broken lights.
I love these lights. However, after less than 9 months, the remote is broken and I can’t turn the lights on or use them at all. I contacted the seller, who told me they don’t sell the remote separately, and that they could offer me a 10% discount to buy a whole new set, and use the new remote. They also told me that the warranty period has passed (after less than 9 months).

The perfect bedroom string lights!
These lights are on my ceiling in my deployed bedroom at the moment. I love that they are remote controlled and have multiple different settings. I use this dimming light at night when I an sitting in bed, maybe watching a show or reading a book, but getting ready to go to sleep. It's perfect because its not to bright, but dim enough that I'm not tripping on things around the room. They look like fairy lights as well, so they would probably be great for a little girls bedroom also. They are just very calming, and that's what I truly enjoy about them.
