Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sydpfloyd ABSOLUTELY JUNK
Purchased 3 of these bulbs and 2 quit and they a cracked and separated, thinking i would buy from a Minnesota company, but i guess they should just stick with sandpaper. I bought a lot of cree bulbs and have had no issues yet. So save you're money and headaches buy the cree bulbs, at least they last longer than 8 months.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LightingEnthusiast Disappointing
I am a 3500k-4000k lighting person. I have searched and searched for any LED bulbs in this coloring range. So when I saw this bulb was available at 4000 K, I order it immediately even though were they were $20 per bulb.
Once I installed them in my ceiling fan in the den, they seemed to work well at first at full strength. But after a few minutes of getting all four bulbs in place and checking the dimmer, I realized there was a lot of improvement to be made.
1. The coloring was good at 4000 K
2. They need to be about 50 lumens stronger per bulb for a large room
3. They do not work well for dimming (mine flickered continuously on low)
4. Would only recommend for a smaller room with no dimming attached

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ConvertedLowesShopper Worst Lightbulb ever!!!!!!
If there was a 0 star rating I would give it to these 3M lightbulbs.
First, these bulbs are incorrectly listed on the Home Depot website as 4000K color but the package clearly lists them as 5000K / daylight.
Second, they are supposed to be dimmable, but they do not shut off completely when hooked up to the latest technology of universal dimmer switches -- always on at a very low glow.
This product should not be sold--a complete waste of money!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by QFocal Almost lasted 4 months.
I think it has a 5 years warranty but it died last night. Only had it about 4 years. I realize it's based on very low usage per day, but for me, I need a light bulb on at least 9 hours a day and for what I paid for this bulb, 4 months is not long enough. - I picked up a Cree today, life based on 3 hour days for 22.8 years, so in theory, I should get at least 6 years out of it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie225 good choice in a "natural white" LED bulb
I've been looking for a 60-watt-equivalent LED bulb for my bath, in "natural white" (3M calls it "cool white"), which is a color temp of about 4000K. 4000K bulbs are hard to find; most places sell either warm white (2700K) or stark white (>5000K). Stark white is really ugly! This bulb yields a natural-looking, pleasing white light.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by asparky Better Natural LIght A19 LED bulbs are available
IF this bulb was the only ~800 Lumen A19 LED bulb available, I would buy it and be happy. But there is a better choice. The Satco S9035 is an 840 Lumen 3500K A19 LED bulb that is 9.8 watts instead of 13 and costs the same.
