by RoseLovesLights Still working fine after Christmas
Two years ago I decided to replace my old light strings & bulbs with all new ones from 1000Bulbs, and these are the bulbs I bought. After 2 Christmases, with the lights burning about 8 hours a night for 3-4 weeks, I have only replaced a couple of bulbs that got broken accidentally. So, these bulbs are holding up very well. Forget the cheap bulbs from the home centers & drugs stores; they don't last, and sometimes those bulbs separate from their bases while you're putting them in.

After only a year of use (approximately 300 hours) I am having to replace a bulb a night this year. I am not having the same problems with my red bulbs (yet). One of the dead green bulbs is in a very hard location to reach on my roof, so I may just have a dead bulb all season. My display has 300 lights, and at the current pace I would have a 10% failure rate after only 10% of the rated life.
Otherwise, I love the color and durability of the paint on these lights. Some lights scratch easily during the process of stringing up while they are laying on asphalt shingles. I don't seem to have that problem with these. At this time I can only recommend these bulbs in limited quantities in easily accessible locations due to my current experience with the failure rate.

Some of the 25 lights I purchased stopped working after one evening. About a month into service I have had to replace 20% of the lights.

I've tried using the clear coated bulbs and they just don't seem to give off the color that the frosted ones do. These bulbs look great, nice and bright! Out of the 300 I ordered, only 2 appeared to be defective, so really high quality there!
