The color temperature is 2700 which is like an old "soft white" incandescent bulb.

Answer: 
Cool to the touch bulbs, after all these are LED lights. They are supposed to be very efficient at not wasting energy by producing unwanted heat ! Great idea these bulbs but boy they really need some quality control measures as they are very poorly made. Great bright light when they work tho.

Answer: 
The globes should be able to be touched - I have removed bulbs from sockets just after turning them off. Don't touch the base immediately after use, it is normally hot enough that you might drop the bulb reacting to the temperature.

Answer: 
Yes, as long as the fixture is rated for a 100W incandescent bulb, this puts out less heat.

Answer: 
No. The packaging says it's not for fully enclosed fixtures, and the bulbs are prone to early failure to begin with. Putting them in an enclosed fixture where the heat would build up would probably cause them to fail VERY quickly, and would nullify the warranty.

Answer: 
No, according to Cree (I called after mine burned out), due to a design flaw, this bulb fails within a few weeks if it is anywhere that doesn't have good airflow. Installation in a full or partial enclosure voids the warranty (it's written on the box, they said). They almost didn't honor my warranty because my bulb had a protective steel cage around it; ridiculous.

Answer: 
I would not recommend as the 18W consumed is all being dissipated in the finned heat sink at base & appears to need air flow to keep it from failing prematurely like the 3 of 14 I installed. If you use a smaller wattage, the results will be long life, whereas these have too much heat with no direct path to cooling

May 20, 2016
I installed these in an LED approved fixture rated up to 100W. I chose a pretty standard dimmer - Leviton SureSlide (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Leviton-SureSlide-600-Watt-Single-Pole-3-Way-Incandescent-CFL-LED-Slide-Dimmer-White-R62-06674-P0W/202065967). The lights are buzzing. Is it recommended I try a different dimmer? If so, please recommend a compatible dimmer. I found searching on Cree's website difficult to find the answer to this question. Any help would be appreciated?Perhaps there is another issue I need to address.

I had one of these bulbs in a good fixture without a dimmer. After less than 1,000 hours it dimmed to about a 60 watt bulb and started flickering once in a while. A lot less than the 25,000 hours promised. I checked the fixture again and it was still good so I bought a different brand, an ecosmart, and it works fine.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 338 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FAIL ,LESS THEN 6 MONTHS I replaced all of my incandescents this past winter with LEDs , most are CREE bulbs. They have been in for six months or less. Today one of the 100 watt CREE bulbs in my basement died. This light is on less then one hour per day. I went to Home Depot to inquire about the Lifetime warranty and was told that I have to deal with the manufacturer. Well, for starters , the register slip is required . Who saves register slips for light bubs ? Then the bulb has to be sent to Cree for replacement. Well , of course I don't have the slip although I somehow do have the package probably because it wasn't in the socket very long. Of course , it would probably cost me more then the $3.97 that I paid for it to mail it so I might as well go buy another bulb from a different manufacturer. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 20 years or 2 years? Bought 4, all dead or dying. So disappointed on this product. Bought 4 two years ago. One failed last December, one did the same thing two weeks ago, and the rest two only have part of the led units working. All bulbs have debris inside. One got a loosed glue piece inside, and one got a big crack on the glass cover. May 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Two of 7 failed in less than a year Two of 7 that I installed in the kitchen burned out in less than a year. They are in open cans end the store lighting clerk said heat buildup should not be an issue. The original package shows a 10 year warranty and the clerk said they would give me 2 new bulbs but I noticed the new packages don't have that warranty. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burned out in a month I was excited for this 100W replacement dimmable LED. The bulb body is both wider and longer than most bulbs, so I had to buy a new housing for the kitchen light. It worked fine for several weeks, then just died. I'm buying more LED bulbs for other locations now, but I won't buy Cree. July 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Started to fail. I bought this about a year ago and 1/2 side has now failed to work. Supposed to work 20 years . . . I don't think so. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LED's are here to stay Very pleased that PPL Electric Utilities helped to reduce the purchase price. Like the instant on over CFL bulb. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lousy product I bought cree bulbs for my whole house last year prior to installing solar- about 1 month ago, I bulb died... yesterday another one died- this time I called cree, and they are sending me replacements... BUT.. these things are suppose to last for years, not months- I will not buy cree bulbs ever again... June 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skip Cree Don't waste your money on these. I am an early adopter of LED technology. I have many Cree Can inserts in my house. Actually over 100. All are doing fine and are of great quality and none have died. I bought these for my den lamps. I had 6 and all six have died within 1 year. I have HD receipts, but Cree wants the retail "proof of purchase". Who keeps retail packaging? I am sure Cree knew this when they created the warranty with this stipulation. I have the actual receipt and the bulbs have not even been on the market long enough for the warranty to expire, but no dice with them. At this point I am praying my can inserts don't start dying. I have receipts, but no retail packaging. Buy Philips or some other brand worthy of your business May 30, 2016
