Great packaging, not any broken bulbs. Lights were great for outdoors.
We replaced the color, twinkle c-9 bulbs that we put up around our patio deck for Christmas with these bulbs. 150 bulbs to replace, 2-man team, 20 minutes and done. And now we have an awesome space to enjoy outside.
We put these lights above our backyard patio and they are great. We've created our own little oasis. They are glass so we started by installing a few bulbs in the sockets but stopped when we broke one putting them up. So after we installed the cords, we finished putting the bulbs in and lit them up. I prefer this look to LED - all warm and cozy.
