I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting when I ordered these cafe lights beyond "indoor/outdoor lights with a remote that chain together", but what I received was pretty impressive.
The lights themselves work exactly as advertised: they chain together and operate on a single remote (which is great); they can cycle through a variety of colors and include a white light. They seem pretty heavy duty. The remotes are interchangeable. The lights are cool to the touch after a long period of use. That's really about it: everything else is as spelled out in the description above.
Some things that you might not be aware of and probably should know, but that aren't a detractor to buying these lights: 1. they're heavy, probably heavier than you'd imagine. I mean, they're made for all weather, so it makes sense that there's some heft to them. On the plus side, that seems to make them more resistant to getting damaged if you drop them. I got two of these for chaining together, and the delivery box was marked "HEAVY". So, heads up. 2. Some light strands have hooks or ridges at the lights for attaching to suspension wires, if that's what you're using: these don't have that, and you'll need to use something to secure the lights to your wire. Consider getting a bundle of zip ties. 3. The "white" light is a warm, cozy light, and not at all like a standard incandescent or LED white light. Two strands strung in a room is far more than enough to light up a single room at night. It's certainly bright enough to see by, but it's probably not something you'd want to do, say, close up piece work to. (Oddly, in one of the cycle settings there's a very bright white-ish light displayed for a few moments, but there isn't a button on the remote for that color.) 4. "purple" and "lavender" are very similar.
That's really about it. They're really well-crafted lights.
