Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Color consistency and fairly pricey
I got 6 boxes and probably 2 out of the 6 are a warmer white (more yellowish). Pretty frustrating especially when you run the lights during the day and can't tell until it's dark so I would possibly recommend doing it at night if you can or test out the sets before running them to ensure consistent colored strands are grouped together. I'm not sure what the negative reviews are referring to. There's two 9' 6" sections which total 18'... it's basically two 100 LED sets in one box and costs $1 more than buying two individual sets. Pretty pricey sets at $24-$24.50 for 100 LEDs but they do come with a 7yr warranty, are bright and seemingly good quality. I did have one bulb completely missing (the entire clear cover housing and bulb) on one set so I'll be exchanging that set. Overall, they're bright and good quality (Def looking forward to the low power consumption). I just wish they were consistent in color and/or had better quality assurance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OMGitsSanta Great lights but...
The lights themselves are awesome. Great color, the wiring is neat and tidy, and overall I think they look the best as far as the 'icicle' structure goes.
The only 'but' is like everyone else is saying - the packaging is misleading. I do not know if these are offered anywhere else, but I have only seen these in 9'6" increments, which appears to result in a slightly higher cost when all is said and done.
When you are hanging them, just make a circle loop where the plugs connect (just as if you were keeping a power tool connected to your extension cord) the the spacing is consistent with the rest of the strand - which was smart on their end.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by strangiato Great color for Icicly Lights
Bought four boxes of these on deep clearance after Christmas 2013. Put them up for the first time in November 2014. The color is perfect for Icicle Lights. They do not match our old incandescent lights, but that's okay, because these are supposed to represent ice.
I have two four-set strings on the front of the house and they look great. They were a bit difficult to unwind, but not impossible. They are very bright and all sets are the same color, so it is possible that the varied color issues that others have had has been corrected. I did not see this particular package in any stores in 2014, just the single set boxes.
Only had one light out in all eight strings, but it was just a contact issue and was easily fixed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Lights different color
Bought 10 sets and 7 were one color, three were a warmer color, and one set somewhere in between on color. If they would have all been the same color would have given a higher rating. Bought two more sets to see if could get 8 of same color. Took them back same day they were a different shade also. Ecosmart says that different production runs have different shades - they need to put that on the box. Told them they should do it like wallpaper runs and label them in lots so the customer could get same color or how about color matching them for the customer?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobert 50/50 Chance on These Lights
The price is competitively priced, however the performance is below my expectations. I bought 4 sets of these lights in hopes of not have to replace them every season, as I have had to do with the traditional lighting. 1 strand in 2 sets are now inoperative. They first begin to flash/blink, then slowly get dim before going completely out. The warm lighting works well for the LED's though. I ordered these lights online, and it appeared that at least 2 of the 4 sets had been previously returned. I am going to return 2 sets and retry it again next year, with hopefully much better results.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Anne Looks great! When they work....
I bought these lights to decorate the front of our house. Although the box says you can "Connect up to 26 sets on 1 outlet" once I connected 5 sets, the lights started blinking on and off. So, i had to rework the entire layout and not connect more than 4 strands to one plug. Also, I've had to use all of my replacement bulbs to replace burned out bulbs right out of the box. Poor quality control. But, once you get them up and running, they do look nice. I'm just hoping they last now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AM31 Wrong length, burned out bulb, bad quality control
So not only were these not 19' EACH as the box states, but I had a few bulbs that were already burned out, plus there was some weird black stuff on the white strands ... I'm not sure if it was grease or actual burn marks from the wiring, but these are going back pronto. So disappointed.
One good thing -- the color is really nice. Golden, not that weird blue that so many "clear" LEDs have.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frederic Good product - Recommended
Even if the price is quite expensive, the LED color is consistent and bright. The LED produces a terrible effect ! I am running 80ft of LED and just a couple of went off... With a 7 Years warranty this is a really good product.
