They are cool to the touch if that's what you mean.
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

Buzzing?

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. I'm hoping it will last longer than the Cree. By the way, if you read the fine print, it Read More

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 346 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 31, 2016
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 Burn outs 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. August 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Absolute Junk 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. August 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Count me as one of the unlucky ones... 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... August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Product 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. July 26, 2016
