Yes I agree, the lights are strange colored. I too don't like them much. I mean we switched our tree to the "warm white" leds and they are not BAD....but they are not regular white christmas tree lights - you can see the difference.
I think what helps is if you have TONS of lights outside -you may want to think about LED. If you only have a few things out - go with normal. If you can't afford the cost of regular lights (electric bill) - LED may also be for you.
Rumor is, companies are working on old fashioned C9 C7 LED light strings so you can't tell the difference.
