I bought several strings of the mimosa and clear lights. By the end of the summer all but three bulbs had burnt out. One can buy replacement bulbs but they are so expensive from Cost Plus that it's actually less expensive to buy another strand of lights. They are beautiful. They are effective in creating a nice ambiance and they do throw off enough light. I do, however, think that they are far too expensive for the lifetime they provide and because of that are a horrible value. Also, at ~7w a bulb they are power hungry for the effect one gets; they just consume too much energy. Overall if the strands were low consumption LED lights priced at three times the cost of these I would state they were an excellent value as they would suck far less power and last much, much longer. As they are I would not recommend them for seasonal use but if one wants to decorate for a one night event and one doesn't care about the expense (congratulations) they will produce a lovely atmosphere! Otherwise a few strings of $5 Christmas lights will provide a similar effect and brightness and cost one much less. They will also last a lot longer.
I have strung these lights around my patio and they give off a warm, almost daylight glow. We have received lots of compliments on them. They are pretty fragile so you have to use care when handling them but it is well worth it. I only wish there were yellow/gold replacement bulbs available.
