The lights themselves are great looking. The built in functions are fun for about 30 seconds and then you go to customize them only to find out that all Customization is is picking some solid (all bulbs at the same time) colors and a way to change between them. You cannot set up a custom chase, custom colored twinkle, nothing like that.

I like that it remembers what your last used setting was, so I can use my own timer. A timer function would be nice, I mean how hard is that to implement?

Another thing that really bugs me, is if I choose my own colors for multi-color, it forces me to use 5 colors. So if I want just a red and warm white pattern the only way to do that is set up all 5 colors (RWRWR) but then I constantly have two red bulbs repeating every 5 bulbs. Definitely should have a way to make 2, 3, 4 patterns possible. Along with this, any preset function that has two colors (red and green for example) will cause the strands to start and end on the same color. So you end up with a red bulb on the end of the first strand and a red bulb on the start of the next strand. This should be fixed to continue the pattern until the end of the lighting strands.

Setup was easy. Everything about these is super easy and fun. They just need a major update to address what I mentioned. Honestly, I haven't hung these up yet and already disappointed and want to return them.

Great lights but where's the software upgrade?


These lights are very cool! This is my third year with them. But I agree a software upgrade is long overdue. This system is more expensive to operate and update every year so there should be more flexibility with the software. One suggestion: add a feature to allow the user to select the specific functions they would like to cycle through instead of having to go thru all 17. I have the unit connected to a timing system that shuts it on and off. But the unit does not seem to hold all of the settings (speed, brightness) after it turns off and in again. Thanks for considering.

No built in timer?


I do have to say that I absolutely love the lights. However, if you had told me that the 7 strands that I paid $50 each for. Does not have a setting to automatically turn the lights on and then back off. Had I known this ahead of time I would have gone with something else.

Come on Phillips! You aren't a low grade, never before heard from, Chinese start up.

Three stars is as high as I can at this point. Again, the lights are fantastic, I absolutely love them. But this could be an easy software fix. Make it happen please.
