The first thing you notice with these net lights is they looks great once you get them on a bush, or if you're one of those people who use them to cover the yard. Everything is fairly straight and you don't have to fuss around as much to get it that way, or worry about the wind possibly making the string hang lower in different parts of the bush. They can be difficult to store after the first use depending on what you have. One issue I had with my last pack of them was they didn't last as long as the regular string lights do. A bulb can go out and effect a section of them. Though it may tend to just be luck, so if you get a good batch it could last a while. Another interesting use for these is if you have a big window, or for a strore window. You can hand them down in front of the inside and it provides an outstanding look, even if you put other decorations in front of them in the window. Overall, a good buy to try.
