Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bumblebee Stay away! LED failures plus glass bulb detaches from base.
We bought six of these bulbs for two brand new light fixtures in May 2013. We replaced one thinking it was a manufacturing error. Ha! In three years, out of 7 bulbs, three had the LEDs fail, followed by two where the glass bulb became detached from the base. Cree stinks. Stay away from this product. Hold on to every piece of packaging and receipts if you ever want to return it.

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.

The first bulb I bought burned out in a week. The second burned out within 18 months. It was on an average of less than an hour a day. These are way too expensive for this short lifetime. Be sure to keep your receipts if you buy one of these.

I bought this bulb because of Cree's reputation. It was supposed to last for years, but it just died after only about 6 months. Like others, I don't save receipts for every purchase I make, so I'm out of luck on this one. What a waste of $20.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by km Avoid these LED bulbs
These used to be great but something has happened to their manufacturing process or design. I have had 5 fail within 4 weeks of installation, both the 100 Watt and 150 Watt. Others that were made years ago are still going strong. They are garbage now so buy another brand until they get their act together.

I have installed Cree led's throughout our new construction home. The newer design (60W 4-Flow) have been fantastic, not one failure out of over 60 bulbs. This older design, 100W has been nothing but problems. I did learn after the first failure to save the packaging and receipt, and Home Depot has been great about exchanging. It has become a bit of a game to me to see what will last longer, my patience or Cree. Bulbs with this many issues can't be good for a company's bottom line, or reputation! My advice, if you choose to buy these, is to buy one more than you need. When the inevitable happens and the bulb fails, you can just screw in the new one, repackage the bad bulb in the new bulbs packaging, and return it when convenient. You now have a new replacement for when the next one goes bad, which in my experience, it will! Repeat as necessary, until Cree produces a bulb that can have a prayer of reaching its rated lifespan...

Failed after 18 months, "10 Year Warranty" doesn't mean anything unless you keep the retail packaging. I have the receipt, and the bulb, and Cree won't replace.
Stay away from Cree, my Phillips bulbs are all still going strong.
