    I've got them on top of my cabinets for cabinet lighting. They look great because they have a dim light to them which glows up on the wall.

    I use them on my 26 footer they work great! and bugs don't swarm them like they do regular bulbs IMHO

    I use rope lighting, but am switching out to LED, because I've calculated that just around the roof of my boathouse is burning 400-500 watts. I can do it in LED for 40 watts. The LED rope lights are still stupid expensive, but the LED string lights that are out for this Christmas are cheap, plus you can connect many more together on one circuit.

    yup, the LED are the way to go. we replaced a set on our cabinets with LED and it lights up nice. I read on a box of LED's at Target, you can hook up to 30 strands. very very low power consumption. for a tree, its not bad. It doesn't have that typical flame look like the incandescent lights do, but look ok
