This is our first computerized light display. It's no LOR (that's next year), but it's not bad for a $140 investment (not including lights and extension cords, of course). It's 8 channels and around 4,500 lights. A big thanks goes to Brian Peek (http://blogs.msdn.com/coding4fun/archive/2006/12/07/1230660.aspx) who wrote the software. It's great if you want to step up from a "Mr. Christmas" but don't want to shell out the cabbage for a full blown LOR display. Thank you and hope you have a blessed Christmas!!
