Rated 5 out of 5 by BradR Pricey, but worth it!
I was a little skeptical of these bulbs ability to tie in to my existing C9 strands. I had a few bulbs burn out and I was down to my last incandescent replacement. I found these replacements and figured I'd give them a try. My incandescents were smooth, but these are textured. I imagine the texture better reflects the LED lights within the bulb to get a more even light distribution. These bulbs tie in perfectly with my existing incandescents. I liked them so much, I bought enough bulbs to replace all the remaining incandescents. After I pull my lights down, I'll be replacing all the bulbs with these LED replacements. After a couple years the energy savings from these bulbs will pay for themselves. Also since they are LEDs they should have a longer life than my old incandescents. I can't fully comment on their longevity since they've only been in use for one season, but of the 20 bulbs I am using, none were defective or have burned out so far. I would highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skwerlee Fantastic C9 LED Retrofit Bulbs!!!
I believe in the “buy right or buy twice” philosophy…so after EXTENSIVE Christmas bulb research...I ordered 100 of these Minleon C9 LED Retrofit Bulbs as they’re about the best bulbs you can purchase. Upon initial inspection it was clear that these are high quality weather-tight bulbs (no wonder these are what the pro's use). I installed them on my roof-line using commercial grade empty socket light line. I've had them up for about a month now and haven't had a single issue with them. With 5 LED’s per bulb these are very bright (unlike the retail grade LED stringer sets available at big box stores). I ordered "Warm White" and as advertised they give off the classic glow of traditional incandescent clear bulbs. These bulbs are also VERY DURABLE...you can literally drag strings of these bulbs across the lawn, concrete, brick, shingles, or even drop them from 15' in the air without worrying about them breaking. A+++ product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lehmtl02 good bulbs
these seem to be good bulbs, more bright when the top of the bulb is facing toward the viewer than if the bulbs are upright. the bulbs are rated at 130V for some weird reason.. they would prolly be brighter if they were 120V like some others, but i'm not certain on that. the website said they were non dimmable but the bulbs have 'DIM' on the base.. the boxes i got did not say 'Minelon' as the brand as they are advertised on the website.. just lots of 'little' things were weird about these bulbs like that, but they work great for my christmas lighting outside

Rated 5 out of 5 by cassboud Great Product
I purchased 20 bags (500 bulbs) of these warm white bulbs. I love, love, love the color they are. So warm and traditional. I hung all 500 of them and did NOT notice a change in my electrical bill. Also, I dropped the bulbs and strands of bulbs many times during installation and removal and the bulbs never broke, they are pretty strong. Great quality products and the customer service is fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich00 Expensive but Worth it
I purchased 15 packs (375 bulbs) of these lights and they are great. Through past experience with LED stringers I was concerned these would not be very bright but I was wrong. In my opinion these lights are just as bright as incandescent bulbs and of course cost a fraction to operate. I will be purchasing another 2 pks to finish decorating my backyard and to use if/when a light goes out.

687 of these really light up the home nicely. I was worried that the glow would be too fake but these looked really good!! Adding 154 additional feet next year around the windows, garage and corners of the house. The cost was jaw dropping but in 2 years I will have paid for the cost in savings of electrical and am additional circuit just for Christmas.
