Rated 5 out of 5★ by jiller THE best LED icicles out there! While 95% of LED lights available today are very unreliable due to potential for leaking water into the bulb covers, causing rust and failure after only 2-4 weeks of use, these are some of the 5% of LED lights that are the exception to the rule! You may be wary of buying LED lights after reading numerous reviews of rusty failure, but don't worry about these lights!In my searches of every store this year, I've found no other icicle lights with screw-in bulb covers like these. The screw-in star bulb covers protect the LED bulb inside from water damage inflicted by other snap-in bulb covers. This is based on reading many reviews, as well as my experience last year with both poorly designed snap-in bulb covered lights and well-designed Walmart screw-in bulb covered lights. This rust problem doesn't happen with traditional non-LED lights as they are all 1-piece vacuum sealed bulbs. LED snap-in covers may be loose enough to allow water to slowly leak inside and rust the LED filaments causing gradual failure (when used outdoors). When LED bulbs rust, no amount of replacement bulbs will help make the light strings work again. Many people this year will open up Christmas light boxes to find expensive LED bulb covers filled with rust on strings that don't work. I had 32 LED strings up last year, and all of the snap-in bulb strings failed. None of the strings with screw-in bulbs failed. Some manufacturers have started to transition to screw-in type bulb covers, but most have not. Avoid any LED lights with snap-in bulb covers, or try out one string this year and stock up next year if they still work. Based on my experience, and that of hundreds of others who have posted reviews of failing LED strings, snap-in covered LED lights should be banned. UL does not have stringent testing for bulb-covered outdoor lights like they do for those UL coded as outdoor lights. That's how badly designed strings make it to the store shelves. Test LED bulb covers at the store before you buy! Avoid those with covers that you can twist or snap.If great design is not great enough of a reason to buy these star lights, these star covers are bigger than you'd think from the photo at just over an inch each! They vary from 2-5 stars per icicle. The 9 feet lighted length is also longer than most LED icicle strands out there. The color is a very bright electric blue. They cast a bright blacklight glow on everything white inside my house!If you don't already know, LEDs save 85%-90% energy compared to traditional lights, and you'll never trip a breaker! Each string is 7.2 watts, and 29 may be connected end-to-end with 2 plugs per string. They have a 3-year warranty, but I have no doubt that they will last the typical 25,000 hour LED lifetime (260 months at 8 hours a day!). Truly amazing lights. Way to go, Holiday Time and Walmart! Note: Holiday Time C7 and C9 strings purchased last year also have screw-in bulb covers and still work pefectly! 11/25/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by DarkAgeDad Blue LED Replaced 300 twinkle lights in each window with these lights went from 100 watts to 20 watts and the blue is brighter and does not fade 11/30/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by cardinal918 just beautiful These lights are really very pretty! Very, very blue but look good when hung on the house. The shipment came faster than I expected, and the sales associate was very helpful when I came to pick up my order. We have 6 strings together across the garage and north side of the roof, and 5 along the front and south side of our house. We have had compliments on how nice it looks. I am excited to see our power bills, as I hope they will pay for themselves within 2 seasons. I am glad we found them! P.S. they light 9 feet long, and since they have been up for a couple of weeks the icicle cords are relaxing, not kinked up like when they were first hung 12/06/2009
