M16400 - Westinghouse Set of 12 Solar Lights with 3 Light Settings
poor design of stakes
I've had these since 2008, I had to replace the batteries, plastic stakes broke when my ground is sand, I would hate to see what happens placed in dirt. I love the multi color changing. I hope Westinghouse makes them again but with metal stakes.
Poor quality solar lights
I purchased these lights last summer, they look nice but they are not made very well. The plastic pieces that go into the ground brake off easily, and have to be replaced. It took months to resolve this with Westinghouse. Also the lights stopped working after a few months, I had to buy new batteries and replace everyone of them. I am very dissapointed! I still have a few Solar Lights that I purchased from QVC in 2005/06 that are still working (not Westinghouse), nothing was ever replaced, unfortunetly they are no longer available.
Good not Great
These are not real bright and do not last the night. I also had to move them around this winter to get them to work at all. However, the color changing feature is great for the holidays, especially directing people to our home. This is personal preference; I happen to prefer functional lighting and these are not bright enough to light the walks at night. These could be great for mood lighting which I plan to try when I get back out in the yard this spring.
Not what they are presented to be
I purchased these lights when we started landscaping our new home. I had another set of solar lights purchased from QVC at least 5 years ago and most of them are still working. These new lights, however, are a great disappointment. Right off the bat, two of them didn't work. My 30 days had passed before we got them installed so couldn't return them. Now some of them come on at night and some don't. Sometimes the lights change, most of the time they don't. When they are on, they are only on from 30 minutes to about 2 hours. They get plenty of sunshine since my house is new and we have no shade yet. Very disappointed. A lot of money for nothing. They will all have to be replaced.
With a name like Westinghouse you expect quality - what a disappointment! They worked for 1 week! I changed the batteries - no luck. No wonder they are discontinued!
less than what you pay for.
I HAD PURCHASED 2 SETS OF THESE LITES LAST SUMMER.NEAT CONCEPT BUT,WITHIN 1 WEEK 4 LITES DID NOT WORK AT ALL.THEN CAME WINTER IN NORTH EAST MEANT ONLY ABOUT 2 HOURS OF LITE FROM SOME OF THEM AND BARELY 1 HOUR FROM OTHERS. THE ATTRACTION TO THESE WAS, NO DIRECT SUN LITE REQUIRED,WAS TO WORK EVEN IF A LITTLE CLOUDY.THIS PAST SUMMER (2008) I HAVE ONLY 5 LITES STILL WORKING,BUT NONE ARE LIT MORE THAN AN HOUR. MAYBE THEY MEANT 8 HOURS OF TOTAL LITE FOR EACH 12 PC.SET.
do not purchase!!
These lights do not work well, we have had to change out the lights twice and a total of four a not working!! We have had them for 6 months and they are ready to go in the trash!! The main company westinghouse has been even less helpful. SAVE your money, buy a better product!!!!
DO NOT WORK!!!!!
I HAVE PURCHASED MANY SOLAR LIGHTS FROM THE Q AND HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH THEM UNTIL I RECEIVED THESE.6 OUT OF THE TWELVE WORK.I WAITED TO LONG TO PUT THEM OUT DO TO AN ADDITION ON THE BACK OF OUR HOME SO I CAN'T RETURN THEM.SOME NEVER LIT AND SOME WILL NOT KEEP THERE CHARGE AND SOME LIGHT IN THE DAY AND NOT AT NIGHT.THE SENSOR IS MESSED UP.SO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THEM.THE COST OF SHIPPING IS TO HIGH NOW TO BE RETURNING ITEMS THAT DON'T WORK.HOWEVER WHEN LIT THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. THE WHITE LIGHT IS BRIGHT AND WHITE.THE AMBER IS GEORGEOUS AND THE FLASHING OF THE THE CHANGING COLORS IS SO DIFFERENT AND WILL BE GREAT FOR THE HOILIDAYS.I JUST WISHED THEY WOULD OF WORKED.LIKE I SAID I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS MUCH TROUBLE WITH SOLOR LIGHTS AND WILL NOT PURCHASE WESTINGHOUSE AGAIN.
I ordered these a month ago and they worked from the get go and are still working. I love them.
Purchased these when they were the TSV. Put 2 of them by my inlaws cemetary marker and the remaining ones in our perennial beds. They work great and we have had no problems. Can't wait until they are offered again in the darker finish so we can purchase more.
I Love these Lights
I bought 8 sets of these a few months ago when they were the TSV and I love them! I had the traditional plug in wired lights before and my husband absolutely hated them. When we moved to our new house, he told me that I was never allowed to buy the wired lights again. I kept looking for solar lights at the home improvement stores but most were either cheap plastic or too expensive and none changed colors. When I saw these, I knew I had to have them. They were so easy to set up and I love the color changing. They are so fun and the lights are really bright, not at all like the dim ones my neighbor has. The highest compliment I can give is that my husband even likes them! They look so much more expensive than they really are, my dad thinks I spent a fortune on these but that is because he isn’t a QVC shopper, my mom knows the truth.
Anyways, of the 8 sets I got, their was only 1 light that didn't come one, since then one or two have started acting up, they still work but don't last as long as the others. I haven't tried changing the batteries yet so that might take care of it. They only negative is that the stakes are plastic and I have broken several of them. I wish QVC sold replacement stakes. Until then, I will keep pushing the posts right into the ground. They still work and look great.
The lights look so neat changing to different colors. I know you can set them on one color but we enjoy seeing the change.
One major problem is that no instructions came with the lights. It took us forever to figure out how to work them. Please correct this.
