Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waltinVT 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jason 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ggopher 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.

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.

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.

Very pleased that PPL Electric Utilities helped to reduce the purchase price. Like the instant on over CFL bulb.

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
