    I recently purchased some rope lighting but took it back because I going to repurchase it after Xmas.

    How many of you are using Red rope lighting or another color besides White?

    I use white rope lights, X-10 controlled, dimmed to an orangish color. It looks pretty sharp.

    Neil, yes this is the same rope lighting used for Xmas lighting.
    I purchased some from Target and Walmart but took the both back.
    I've heard on www.avsforum.com that you should get the kind that can be cut.
    Home Depot has that type but I'm not sure if that type comes in the cheap brand or $3.50 per foot at Home Depot.
    I'm just going to wait until after Xmas.
    Seasonal Concepts has some but the price wasn't so great.
    Here are the places that I have seen rope lighting:
    Target, Walmart, Kmart, Home Depot, Seasonal Concepts and Lowe's.
