With the Festive FX lights you can cover a large area of your home outside, giving your neighbors a beautiful display. Using the projector, you get to pick from different images to fit your holiday season. Then display them through a glass door or window so that everyone inside and outside of your home gets to enjoy them. The images move and emit sounds too, adding something extra to your holiday set up or party.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Festive FX is $59.99 plus $9.99 shipping, for a total price of $69.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at festivefx.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Festive FX and has taken down the website. Festive FX may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

Features

  • Reduce Storage

    When you use Festive FX lights you save a great deal of storage space inside of your home. People who use traditional lights generally have issues trying to take them down, wrap them up, and then store them. Most of the time people don't take their lights out more than once or twice per year which means that they get stored somewhere like an attic or basement. Using these units you take up a lot less space when you have to store the lights. This also takes up less space simply when it is on display.

  • No Need to go Outside

    The unique design means that you can set things up inside your home without having to deal with inclement weather or going outside to turn things off at the end of the night.

  • No Batteries

    There are no batteries required to set up these fun images.

  • Set up Vertical or Horizontal

    You can position images vertically or horizontally depending on the size of your windows and the exterior of your home.

  • Fast and no Tools

    The setup is quick and easy and you don't have to struggle with lights for the outside cold.

  • Neighbors Will Come to See

    You can turn your home into a spectacular neighborhood delight. Neighbors will lineup to come and watch your house as all of the beautiful videos and sounds make it come to life.

Pros

  • Safer

    Using lights such as these Festive FX to illuminate the outside of your home is much safer than hanging individual strands of lights. No matter the occasion or time of year, most of the time when people decorate the outdoors it requires a lot of messy cables and cords. It also requires a tall ladder, usually set up in bad weather, and a lot of extension cords.

    The more extension cord to use the less safe it is. With only one or two lights you reduce not only the cords that are in the way but the electricity you use. You can eliminate all of these risks when you set up these lights instead, and you still get to display lights no matter how tall your house might be.

Cons

  • Reduced Security

    While you do save a great deal of time and effort being able to display things through your window that are seen both inside and out, you also reduce security. By blocking your windows with the projector, you cannot see what's going on outside.

  • Need Plug

    Even though it doesn't run on batteries you still have to plug it in somewhere inside of your home. This means that you have to find a place to set up the projector and subsequently find a place to plug it in.

  • Projector in the Way

    The display is only achievable with the projector which means the projector has to be located somewhere in your home where it points directly at the projector screen. Some people might find that this means it gets in the way of whatever furniture they have inside the home, especially around holidays.

    For example, if you want to set up in front of the main window in your living room, you might have to bring in an extra table. Alternatively, sit on the floor where it is in the way so that it can shine directly at the projector.

  • No Mixing

    Beyond the 12 images are provided for you there is literally no control over any other options. You can't just display different colors if you want. This means you have to pick from the images and the sounds that are provided for you.

    Moreover, you can't change the arrangement on the disks nor can you mix-and-match. The only way to mix and match different things is to buy different projectors and display them in different areas.

Tips & Tricks

  1. You Will Need More Than 1

    Each order comes with one projector and one screen. As a result you will either have to try and create your own projector screen, purchase separate screens, or purchase multiple sets. In the commercial you see homes with eight separate windows each of which is displaying a unique image and noise. What isn't told to you is that these people had eight separate projectors with eight separate projector screens, displaying eight separate images from the discs. For larger homes looking to cover all of their windows and doors with special designs, this can get quite expensive.

How it's Different from Competitors

This particular set of festive lights is different because you can use it inside your house and it will be visible outside. The fact that it displays moving images is slightly different too. On the market today there are LED light projector similar to this one which play DVDs in your window, with a very similar physical set up. Such alternatives allow you to put up a projector screen, play video in the projector, and people passing by can watch it. Alternatively people have units that you affix outside your house which light up the front of your home with fun images, lights, or pictures. This is one of the only displays that you put up inside your home which gives you festive holiday images. Naturally this means you are limited to whatever disks are loaded into the menu option without much control over anything else.

How It Works

First you hang the projector screen over your window. Set the projector up on a hard surface then pointed toward the door or window where your projector screen lives. Use the remote to select video from the menu and then projected inside your home. There are preloaded 3D animated videos and sounds, 12 in total. These create truly amazing holiday affects both inside your home and outside her home. You get the projector, the tripod, the projector screen, the remote, eight preloaded videos and for bonus videos.
