Used this bulb is an overhead fixture (Not recessed in ceiling) under normal daily use - being 2-3 hours per day. Bulb failed in less than 2 years of use. Electric cost savings not worth the price of the bulb. I gave 2 stars because the lighting was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coastal Great Light but wish they had high CRI version
Using in single bulb ceiling lights, ceiling fan fixtures, and in standing torche lamps. Great light tone, easy on eyes. Can be a postitive or negetive depending on use light spreads perpendicular 360 with led inside shaded coated glass cover limiting light spread to top and bottom of bulb. Unfortionately appears Cree has discontinued much of their TW (True White) line, this bulb has a CRI of 80, their older 40 and 60 equivelents use to be available in TW also with a CRI of 93. Come on Cree ad a high watt equiv high CRI to your line up. NOTE: I do not recomend the 3-Way version of this 100 watt equiv, lasted 2 months, the Cree bulb failure I have had.

Bought 6 of these for our new home when we bought it last April. One burned out already, another flickers at random. That is a failure rate of 33%. Buy something else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BD No More Cree For Me
Purchased several of these and after the first round of burnouts, I took them back to Home Depot who allowed me to exchange them there since they had only lasted a couple of weeks. After a couple more months these started flickering and burned out. PIcture shows only half the LED's lighting up before burning out. Cree offers a 10 yr warranty, but too many stipulations to make it worthwhile paying to send back. I ended up buying another brand of LED lights at a fraction of the cost and haven't had any issues. I will be staying away from the Cree products from now on.

I bought 4 of these bulb, they are suppose to last years. all 4 of them burned out within months. I have replaced all 4 of them. Home Depot was nice enough to replace them instead of having to send them back to the manufacturer. The replacement bulbs also burned out within months. I've had to replace them with the CFL's until I can find another LED that is better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bri Failed after 12 days!
I bought one of these LED Bulbs to make sure that it would fit my garage door opener... It fit so I bought 3 more (each opener takes 2 bulbs. Well this first one filed after 12 days / at $18.00+ that's an expensive light... I'll be returning it with the sales slip to the store for a replacement, and hoping that the other 3 don't die too.
Not happy with this purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by maxpower One by one they are burning out, lasting under 1 year
We built a new home last fall and installed these bulbs everywhere. The 75 & 100watt equivalent ones are the most costly and are failing one by one. I would never buy these again, started to replace them as needed with different brand.
