I'm going to compare Vintage to Classic. I have four sets of these Embrighten Lights - two 48 foot Vintage, one 36 foot Classic, and one 24 foot Classic. Some pictures are of just the Vintage sets before I put the others up. One remote controls all of the lights, but I have to make sure I'm where they'll all respond. If one string doesn't respond, I just move a little and try again. There are two main differences in the Vintage and Classic: the size of the bulbs and the color temperature of the white. The Classic bulbs are smaller, as you can see in the pictures, but for me, that's not a problem at all. Other than the single "White" setting, the colors match - all strings do the same thing and have the same colors - all colors fading, strobing, twinkling … red, green, etc. - they match and look beautiful. Even when using "Strobe" or "Fade," when the color changes to white, they match. The only time they don't match is when using the "White" button on the remote for the static white color. The Vintage is at 2200K and the Classic is at 2700K. The Classic is a brighter white. But again, that's only when using the "White" button for a non-changing white color. That's seldom my choice anyway. I bought color lights for the colors. These are wonderful.
