Love the look! November 27, 2018
Reviewer: Casey Davis from EDMOND, OK United States  
I've always loved the look of the old style C9's. This year I outlined my house, garage and windows with 8" spaces C9s. They were really easy to install with the mounting strips and they look perfect. Using xLights, along with some of the test patterns from the AlphaPix 4, I'm displaying a different pattern/color every night. It's so easy, and beautiful.

Better than expected November 17, 2018
Reviewer: Nate from Plymouth, MN United States  
I purchased the hobby grade strings and was pleased with the quality of the light covers and connections.  Of the 3 strings (50 lights each) there was an issue with one bulb and I’m waiting to see how they want to fix/replace it.  Also, I’m not sure how well these will hold up in the snow/rain/ice as I just put them up a few weeks ago.

Color Sequence Not the Same Between Strings November 13, 2018
Reviewer: J. Miller from China Grove, NC United States  
Ordered 1 Brilliant Bulb String 709-12 (12" Spacing) and 1 Brilliant Bulb String 709-8 (8" Spacing) for testing.  One was color sequence GBR the other was BRG.  Useless if both are to be used on the AlphPix 4 or 16 since the SPI outputs have to all be the same sequence.  The lights look good but are just useless when used together.  I can't even find the sequence on the web site product page.
