    Default Hack Lowes "7.5-ft Freestanding Tree with Multi-function"?

    I was wondering if anyone had seen these and knew if it would be easy to tie into your show...

    I'd read the reviews before I even contemplated trying to hack these. The reviews show frequent strip failures and very unhappy customers in general. I think I would stay away and just build my own trees if I were you. There are plenty of posts on building trees on the forums and plenty of people that would be glad to help you figure it all out.

    I have not. With all white, my guess would be that your options are limited and the lights are not individually addressable. Even clearance priced that seems a little high compared with building a ' dumb' tree from scratch.

    People at Lowes themselves told me to stay far away from them. They have had huge return rate.

    Considering that the channel that the lights are in does not lend itself for replacement, and the strings holding them up are plastic, I think the advice to "stay away" is worth considering. (Yes - I've seen them in person.)

    I also am looking for an answer to this question. I bought two at 50% off after Christmas.

    I just went to my lowes and bought 6 of these for $100 bucks... they were all returns and and none of them have all the strips of lights or to make a complete tree. I just wanted the frames as they are powdercoated metal that breaks down will make EASY STURDY DIY pixel / Incan trees.... SCORE.... I called the manager and bought all the returns and the display for 100 bucks for the whole lot. There are 3 new in the box for 78 a pop... I CONSIDER THIS A SCORE!!!

    There really is no doc or numbers to be found per this review here is the website. There is no help at all, they do not work very long, and I got them to use the frames only.

    The first one I had to take back because two of the LED strips weren't working properly. Yes they were plugged in all the way,in fact I switched them around to make sure it was the LED strips and not the box they are plugged into. It only comes with ONE spare LED strip so having two not working was a problem. We took it back and got another one, get home and put the new one together. Everything works properly, one day later one of the LED strips stops working so I'm forced to use the spare. The product isn't worth the $300.

    The companies website: www.ishowtree.com is absolutely worthless, no contact numbers provided either so good luck trying to get spare parts. Product comes with a one year warranty, I will probably be taking this one back as well as Im sure next year it wont be working correctly!
