B&M stores have the exact same lights, but powered by 2xAA batteries for £1.99 if anyone wants some to use away from a PC. a 50p USB plug later and the quickest/easiest soldering you'll ever do and you can have the exact same thing for £4.50 less... =]
#8
ideal, and far better for office H&S....job done. :santa: :santa:

You can get ones that plug in to the mains, or battery powered one for about £2, can't see the sense in paying so much for USB powered (CPU hoggers!!) ones? Also worth noting you'll probably hang these on your monitor for 5 mins before you unplug them because they are hurting your eyes.

Think it's a pants deal to be honest, and I LOVE twinkly lights lol

The software version is Twinkle Bulbs which I have. So xmas up your desktop!
Ive had this for last few years, just to get into the festive spirit of course!

The most useless thing I have seen for ages.

Waste of money and electricity, not good for your eyes.

Voted cold. Give the £6.99 to Children in Need instead!

I've seen it before - the more popular a site becomes, the more likely you are to get 'nae users' like mystik (should change yer name to dipstik) who contribute nothing but negativity becoming members.

If you've nowt constructive to say, then say nowt and go elsewhere - your type don't do sites like this any favours.

So you'd rather have a back-patting, old-boys club of a site where everyone says how great a deal, no matter how much of a rip-off it is (like this, 3x the price the lights are available for).

No thanks, I'd rather have a site where people aren't afraid of pointing out the bad and upsetting some sensitive little soul.

Also, the same could be said of your post - if you've nothing constructive to say to the user ignore them and "go elsewhere". (but that solves nothing in either case).

And in the posters opinion the item is rubbish and I've got to agree with him our opinions we're entitled to them the same as your entitled to yours so get off your high horse

as I said in my previous post B&M have them for £2, I think Home Bargains and TJ Hughes may have them too (they usually sell the same stuff as B&M) but I'm not 100% sure. The ones at B&M are AA battery powered, but if you really need them to be USB (making them less portable) then you can get a usb plug for £0.50ish and solder the + to + and - to -. if you can't solder you could even use a gluegun or similar to hold the wire in place (wouldn't be as durable then though).

Just because you can't get them for £2 doesn't mean they don't exist for £2. By giving you the names of places you can get them Deleted User Name 3 made their point, you are just being arbitrary. I'd estimate 90% of people using this site have a home bargains/tj hughs/pound shop where you can pick up some cheap as chips fairy lights to drape around your monitor in a town center they will be going to any way before xmas.

You miss the point - I still don't know exactly where I can get cheaper ones from by shop or by post. I am perfectly capable of deciding whether its worth spending my time & money driving/getting transport/walking into the nearest shops and searching for these £2(ish) bargains, only to find they don't exist or they're out of stock, etc.

What I do know is I can buy a set for £6.99 delivered to my door from Play.com, so thanks to the OP.

For those who might be interested M&S do strings of battery operated fairy lights (blue or white) for £5 a set. I have some (they're on M&S's 3 for 2 deal and were delivered, we've no M&S round here either)! But I liked the idea of a usb set.

What do you mean I contribute nothing? I told you exactly where to put the £6.99 you have burning in your pocket...

In any case, the whole point of having comments with a deal is for others to express their personal opinion...whether it be for or against. And my personal opinion still remains the same: this is a cold deal because IN MY OPINION these lights are a complete waste of money. If you really need to adorn your monitor get the Fairy lights application which was posted previously....costs £0.00, and doesn't waste electricity.
