I've been decorating with LOTS of lights for many years. Last Christmas I finally decided to replace all my incandescent with LED. My first few LED purchases over the past several years had not been what I had hoped for. I did not like the quality of the light, which seemed harsh and overly blue tinted to me. I threw all those away. However, these opaque bulbs have the warm quality I desire. They look amazing and they're not only much more energy efficient, they run cool as well. I love these and I will be buying more. Probably lots more.
The color is nice but the coating on lightbulbs are uneven making the light output look unsightly and cheap. The manufacturing process needs to be corrected so the coating is even from top to bottom of the bulb.
