  1. Yeah I saw that quote, but what I meant was how can you tell if these particular ones are half or full wave? I looked over the entire page and didn't see any indication of that.
  2. How can you tell they are half wave?
  3. OK. I'm going to put LEDs on my tree (about 7 footer) and we've decided to go with warm-white strawberry lights and red mini lights (a ration of 60/40). I think I want to buy these lights at Sears, but what do you think? http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_07177368001P?keyword=led+christmas+lights&prdNo=35&i_cntr=1289153775055 Take a look at them and tell me if they are pretty good.
  4. So, why did you decide to convert to LCD?
  5. I am going to decorate my tree (7 foot) but we might use LEDs or we might use incandescent. The LED lights we are considering are from Sears (http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_07177368001P?keyword=led+christmas+lights&prdNo=35&i_cntr=1285545641754) and there are 250 lights on 81 feet of wire (warm white). We are also thinking about using red lights as an accent (we haven't picked these out, but my wife thinks she wants the small globes or the traditional looking bulbs). We haven't chosen the incandescent lights yet, but those choices are less critical except for the number of strings we are going to purchase. If someone could give me some suggestions, I would appreciate it.
  6. Hi. I am new to this forum and if this has been covered before, I apologize. We have a tree that was lighted (I say was because the incandescent lights that were on the tree were crap so I cut them off!). We love the tree and are going to put new lights on it. We are considering LEDs for a few reasons. I will spell them out and I would like you (the members of this forum) to tell me if these things are true or not. 1. LEDs consume less electricity than incandescent lights. 2. You can string more strands together than incandescent lights. 3. When one light goes out, the rest stay on. 4. LEDs produce less heat. Now, I have done some research and I know #1, 2, and 4 are true, but I don't know the extent of the difference, so I would appreciate anyone giving help if you can. The lights we are considering are the warm white strawberry lights.
