now that the season has finished l would like to report on the lights that we bought from china. l bought 150 sets of leds, most were 24vdc version but 20 sets were the 240 volt type. l bought 5 and 10 meter lenghts and all differrent colors and am very happy to report that they performed perfectly, we had NO failers of any type, they were of good brightness and the more than average rain that we had this year DID NOT affect them. Unfortunally l needed 1 more green string and had to buy it from Big W , what a piece of crap it was, it ran for about 2 weeks and the first section died and by the end only half of it was working. It is now in the bin !!.. How did yours go dave from perth ?
