I was disappointed in the lights, but had to use them or forgo my tree (icicle lights work well on trees....easier to hide the wires). There were two problems: (1) the web site didn't state that the bulbs were faceted...every icicle light I've used in the past was smooth, so this was really disapointing). (2) They were really poorly put together. Usually I have to give up on lcicle strings when the wiring gets so loose around so many bulbs that they're hard to work with. These came with that problem, only worse. In a couple of places zip ties were used to keep them from separating more (white ties on green wire), but this in no way makes up for the poor quality. I'll add a third. I know that "warm" white is much cooler with LEDs than incandescents, but these are whiter, and brighter, than my coldest "cold" incandescents. The only reason for giving them a star is because they' got here....had I had the time, I would have sent them back. Given the price, they're no where near worth it!
