This light display is well worth the money! We live in Texas and don't get "snow" but this gave us the effect of snow. We've used it in the house to entertain the kids as well and they love it! I love that I didn't have to go outside to turn it off and on. I set the timer and it turned on automatically. If I wanted it to run longer I used the remote control to extend the time. I could change the fall pattern as well. The lamp covered the entire front of my house. The lamp is large and sturdy... not a little cheap one for sure! This is the easiest decorations you'll put up and take down!
