I will try those. The price for an RGB controller is nice. Plus power supply and outdoor RGB LEDs? Not bad at all.

That's what I figured. I read through some of the older threads on the sylvania lights but didn't say anything newer on the garden lights but for that price. It is worth trying.

Did anyone else order one? I got notice from Amazon on the 30th that they were delayed. Now looking at October most likely. I really want them for Halloween. Light up my carved headstones as people walk by.

As long as they do not delay again... Even their current "worst case" of mid-October should work. If they delay again... I will still keep the order but just plan for Christmas.

This was the first time I complained to Amazon (the delay is just so big and they really are for Halloween). They offered free expedited shipping from another seller... That cost twice as much. Sorry, no.

Yeah in my experience they don't do much when orders are delayed. Otherwise their support is usually pretty good.

Just got an email this morning that mine should arrive tomorrow. Looking forward to trying them out.

Placed it the day of the sale. July 27th. No idea what the time was though. Not at this point.

Same here, pretty early in the day I think. I didn't receive any indication they were coming soon until the email showed up today.

Got mine today. Need to add one tonight. Initial indications are good.

Had time after dinner. Added without any trouble to my Almond+. Response time was good. Colors are decent but the RGB mix is obvious up close (needs some distance from an object to blend). The power supply and controller seem weather resistant. I think the weird flat wire is a bit too big and obvious, but it has to carry enough power for extensions I guess. Have to see what it looks like at night.

So overall they look decent.
Brightness control is broad enough and they are plenty bright at the highest, dim at the bottom, without a major gap before going off.
Color is... OK. Each of the three colors are pretty decent. But they are hampered by the optics. When you want anything other than a base color the blend is noticeable even when on something a good range (10ft) away. This can be a good or bad thing. For us it is neutral. Some purposes good, some bad.
The optics do help it have a cone of light versus the more narrow focus an LED typically has. I wonder how they would work roughed up a bit to diffuse it more though. I might try that out.

Overall: Satisfied with the purchase, especially on sale, but not sure I would consider retail price justified.
