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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Bulb burned out
I spent for expensive lightbulbs for a long term investment when I purchased six Cree bulbs less than two years ago at Home Depot. Used most of them in single-switch series overhead bathroom fixture (non-dimming). We use these bulbs on average 2-3 hours max burn time a day. Bulb burned out far faster (< 2 years) than the 18+ years life which Cree advertised. From reading through the number of reviews today from customers who have had similar or faster burn out issues, it seems like the other Cree bulbs I have in the same overhead light series are likely to go sooner rather than later. Quality of lighting was very good, but early burn-out is a bad deal.

I bought six of these to replace CFL bulbs last fall. Three of them are already dead. They lasted 2-6 months. I was able to get my money back from Home Depot for one of them thanks to their 90 days guaranty. I guess I can return the other two to Cree but I don't want to wast more money on the shipping cost to do so. Don't waste your money on these!

I have bought a variety of LED bulbs over the past couple years, and the Cree bulbs are the only ones that fail (so far). I bought 3 Cree 100 watt equivalent bulbs and all three died in about a year. I even returned one of the bulbs and got a replacement, and that nub too has died. All these were in different fixtures that held multiple bulbs, and the non-Cree bulbs are still working fine. I would not recommend Cree.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LEDletdown do not buy cree
I had 8 of them for less than 2 years. One completely failed, the other 7 vary between a very low candle glow to working and then going to the candle glow. Of course they have a warranty if you keep a receipt. Who keeps a receipt after a year or can find it. Maybe, other led bulbs are good, but to spend ten times the price does not seem to bright. I will buy cheap bulbs that fail in two year or so. At least they do what they are suppose to.

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.
