Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good but... aware that from the plug to the first light there is only about 1m of cable and this would be difficult to extend. Also, the screws supplied with the clips were rusty after two days, which is a bit rubbish for outdoor lights. That said the lights themselves are brighter than I thought and I am pleased with them overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad. I have two sets of these and am impressed by the amount of light they throw out for the watts used. We have a smallish garden and use them partly as security lights and for ambient. Just ensure that at each end the water tight washers are in place correctly. I've used some extra waterproof repair tape around the ends as a belt and braces approach after having one set fail due to water ingress, not had a problem since.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product, broke twice in as many weeks... AVOID This has been professionally installed in my garden only to find a week later that sections of the led strip have stopped working. Naturally these have been installed in such a way that you cant just simply remove the item and return it. I am furious with the shoddy quality of this item.
