This projector is way better than having to hang lights all over your house. The lasers are really powerful and there are a variety of modes to choose from. I like that you can set the time off and on to do it itself automatically. It makes it nice to not have to think about it and know it will turn on and off by itself every day. The only things I don't like about it are that the cord is pretty short so I have to use an extension cord to get it far enough away from the house to make the beams cover the whole house. And also that there is not one setting just for the plain dot beams without the symbols. I did make up for this by turning the speed down all the way when the dots are present. This makes it so it is just dots on the house that do not move. The picture does not do the actual look of it justice. It is very beautiful and I have gotten a lot of compliments.
