I have enjoyed using LED lights made by Bethlehem Lighting on our Christmas tree and outside decorations for several years and am gradually replacing all of our incandescents. I love the colors, and I always choose the WARM WHITE bulbs, which do not have the bluish cast of the other whites. The colored LED lights are much brighter than my old strands!
I generally do not like to mix LEDs and incandescents in one display because the difference is visible. On a small evergreen tree near the street, I will use incandescent whites and LED reds (while my incandescents are still useable), but I would not mix white LEDs with white incandescents.
Every year, some of my incandescents go dead (or lose half of their lights). I replace them with high quality LEDs, like these made by Bethlehem Lighting. In four years, I have never lost a single light on my LED strands!
