A smooth finish and warm color give this LED bulb the look of a traditional C9 bulb with all the advantages of energy efficiency and durability. While not an exact match to incandescent bulbs, they will blend nicely when both styles of lights are used in the same project. See them compared in this blog post: Christmas Lights Smackdown: Warm White LED vs. White Incandescent.

These bulbs have an E17 base and fit standard C9 Christmas cords.

These are great. They look very good compared to other LED options. One of the 300 bulbs had some bent metal on the base, so I am not using that one. 99.67 % success rate isn’t bad for the price.

Closest thing to incandescent bulbs

I ordered bulbs from 6 different manufacturers, looking to replace the color and brightness of traditional incandescent bulbs. In my opinion, these were the closest. They are very slightly more white and equal or brighter than incandescent. The other bulbs I tried were either too blue, too pink, too yellow/gold, too green, or too dim. I'm very happy with these. I was originally concerned that the plastic may scuff, but it didn't seem like a problem after taking them down after the first Christmas season.

I prefer these over the cool white

For Christmas I alternate red, white & green bulbs. I tried the cool white, but they seemed much brighter than the red and green bulbs. Also, the cool white next to the green, seemed to make the green look bluish. The warm white looks much better, and more traditional.

Just amazing

These lights far outshine anything else on my block. I was nervous because the pictures made it seem as though they might be a little dim, but that is absolutely not the case. Couldn't be happier.

Look like incandescent bulbs

These bulbs are as close as it gets to a traditional incandescent equivalent bulb. I love the color and the level of brightness.

Slightly underwhelmed

The color on these is good. It is similar in appearance to a traditional white CP bulb. The bulbs are not very bright. These are not as bright as my neighbor's Walmart bulbs. The photos on this site are taken from an angle that looks into the bulb. Because these lack a reflector on the inside of the bulb, they are poorly seen from the side. This is the reason you most commonly see faceted LEDs, the bulb is low in the base and needs something to reflect off of. There are two ways to improve these, buy clips that aim the bulb toward the street (found 75 at Walmart for $5), and scuff all the clear plastic bulbs with sandpaper to give it something to reflect off of. Buy faceted next time or a different manufacturer...

A good alternative

I really like these bulbs. I was looking all over the place for a bulb without the facets. These aren't as bright as my old C9 bulbs but I like them.
