We bought 8 strands of indoor/outdoor 200 count c7 white led's after christmas in 2007. We looked forward all year long to decking our whole house out in these lights the 08 season, as me and my wife had decked the tree out with these type lights in 07 and loved the way they looked. We put the lights up and turned them on as we always do thanksgiving night and the house looked stunning. Then friday morning we had rain showers. When we turned the lights on friday night 325 of 1600 led's were out (Yes I was so mad I counted them). Every single strand had a section out on it somewhere. The cause in every single case was water leaking down the leads into a poorly fitted socket and into the led its self. Still more lights have gone out since and we finally got so disgusted with how bad the house now looked that we took the christmas lights down on december 18. We called home depot and asked them if they would replace the lights even though it had been 11 months since the purchase had been made as the product had been in storage the entire time due to it's seasonality and was cleary defective, if not dangerous. There reply was that they were no longer responsible for the problem and to call the manufacturer. My reply - that after all the time and money you put into doing a large disply and having to take it down a week early and throw away 1600 lights, cause somebody sold you complete junk, i'll never ever step foot into a home depot again.
