Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 203 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2 of 3 dead after less than 50 hours of use. We installed 3 Cree 18W 2700K 1600 Lumen bulbs in a light fixture in our new home in June. They were purposefully selected due to the fixture being 2 stories above a staircase, hoping they would last a long time. 2 of the 3 bulbs have now burnt out in less than 50 hours of use. I thought after the first bulb burnt out in 2 weeks it was a fluke or even a loose bulb, but when the second burnt out 2 weeks ago I got out the ladder and removed the dead bulbs. Both were installed by our electrician and are appropriate for the fixture. This is disappointing. I won't be buying any more Cree bulbs in the future due to this example of poor reliability. Thank you, Chris January 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You Get What You Pay For LED bulbs are more efficient than CFL bulbs with equivalent ratings; but have a higher initial cost. Cree is a well-known manufacturer of LEDs for tactical flashlights and has a good reputation for quality in that market. I expect the same level of quality from Cree for their line of replacement light bulbs for home applications. The second most important consideration for my purchase of LED bulbs, for hanging pendant lamps in my kitchen, was appearance. Cree's 100 Watt equivalent LED bulbs are far more attractive than the 100 Watt equivalent CFL bulbs that I'd initially purchased as replacements for incandescent bulbs. May 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super impressed! Bought this as a porch light to see how far LED bulbs have come and to test the brightness, along with testing the theory that soft white doesn't really attract bugs. And I am impressed. The 100w is insanely bright. Brighter than the CFL bulb I had in there. I had tons of bugs flying around the CFL, and almost as soon as I switched to the LED, most of them dispersed. There are a couple tiny bugs flying near it still, but none of the big ones that were surrounding it before. My house currently has nearly all CFL bulbs, but will definitely be switching to these (in various wattages of course) as soon as they go out. The upfront cost is of course more than regular bulbs or even CFLs, but if they have the life span they claim to, I think it'll definitely pay off. April 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by High Failure Rate I purchased (4) of the 100W bulbs for a bathroom fixture. They were great for a few months, giving off plenty of light and very little heat. However, 1 failed after about 4 months of use and another 2 months later. Given the high intital cost, this is unacceptable. I was expected years of life out of these! I'm working through the warranty replacement effort now. These have to be far more reliable before I'd recommend them. November 7, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice light but does not last as specified I have several CREE lights. I have 2 of the 100 watt bulbs and one failed after 5 months. The warranty from CREE is a bit restrictive. It is a 10 year warranty but you need the receipt (to prove that you have had it less than 10 years) and the proof of purchase from the package. Since this particular bulb was introduced less than 2 years ago neither of these seem to be relevant to honor a warranty. I will not be buying anymore of these 100 watt bulbs until I see some improvement in the reviews. Even though I have had no problems with the other wattage bulbs from CREE I will probably not buy any more of them for a while. Also, while these seem to be dimmable, they do not perform well with a dimmer. September 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warrenty Replacement? Ordered 10 100w from Home Depot May 8, 2014 (W273884725) . Two failed in June. Still waiting for replacements from Cree. Shipping dates have changed three times, 8/8, 9/2, and now 9/26/2014. Copied Home Depot Customer Service and received an unacceptable response. Another failed today September 21, 2014.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light, solid construction, price needs to come down Solid construction, almost seems shatter resistant. Great light output, consistent and clear. Soft white version is comparable to most soft white CFLs - but the output is bright from the start. The price needs to drop before I buy a house full of these, but I am pleased with the purchase so far. Note that the base of these is larger then most bulbs, almost as wide as the bulb itself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goodbye CFL, Hello LED It's DIMMABLE. It's rugged- you couldn't breathe on the old CFLs without tearing them up. It's COOL. My big motivation for moving away from incandescent has always been HEAT, yeah, saving money is great, but I've seen so many fixtures burned up from over wattage. I'm surprised there aren't more house fires. It's BEAUTIFUL- the light is warm and pleasant. January 27, 2015
