I purchased the BA21-16027OMF2-12DE26-1U_00 bulb about 3 years ago to put in a location that is difficult to reach. I thought it would be a good choice given it's longer expected life. Unfortunately, it is already dead and I need to find a replacement. Not sure if the $20 price tag is worth it. I'm getting longer life out of my CFL's. I've contacted CREE to see if something can be done, but without the original receipt I'm not sure I'll have much success. Hopefully you will have better luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viable 100W incandescent replacement The CREE 100W class LED bulbs do what CREE promises - they are a viable replacement of 100W incandescent bulbs. These are a bit more bulky in the inverter base section than the 60W replacements, but still fit all my fixtures. The light output pattern mimicks a traditional filament bulb. Unless you look straight onto the bulb's top you wouldn't know. CREE's bulbs do not feature a forward facing LED on the top of their cylindrical LED post, i.e. there is a darker spot. Well, you'll need welding goggles to notice that since the LEDs are putting out a very high flux. The 2700K "warm white" bulbs look like filament bulbs in terms of light color (temperature) and do render colors nicely. The 5000K "daylight" bulbs have a crisp bluish light output that works for me quite well in the basement, laundry area and shop. The bulbs run cool, the inverter gets warm, not excessively though, and they are silent in operation. That is a huge benefit, since most of the competitors' LED bulbs have an audible hum or buzz that I find quite annoying. The glass bulb is covered with a thin silicone layer which will keep users safe in case a bulb ever cracks. Overall a very nice product - and I am very happy to finally get the light output of a 100W bulb from affordable LED sources. CREE is the technology leader - and they have proven their engineering prowess yet again with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AVOID! High defect rate, and Cree Customer Service is a nightmare! Buy Philips instead. I had one of these begin flickering about a year after purchase. I called Cree Customer Service at 866-924-3645 on December 7, and they promised to send another bulb in "3 to 5 days." After no bulb arrived, I called again on January 4. After a long time on hold, "Debbie" promised to find out why it hadn't shipped, after which she would send me an email. After not getting an email, I called again on January 5. After a long time on hold, I got Debbie again, who said my case was "lost and then found again," and that I would now be receiving a new bulb... on February 29 or sooner. Let's just say that I won't be holding my breath while waiting for the bulb to arrive. AVOID THIS PRODUCT. The defect rate is incredibly high, and getting it replaced will eat up your time with no guarantee that you'll get a new bulb at all. If you need a dimmable 100W equivalent LED bulb, spend an extra $2 and get the Philips bulb: If you don't need dimmability, get the new Philips bulb instead, it's less than half the price and seems to be much more reliable:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LED Finally has come of age! The bulbs perform as advertized and are plenty bright. Soft white has nice hue tones and dims appropriately. I bought the 5 pack (one came damage in shipping) but my local Home Depot came thru! They are excellent replacements for 100W incandescent. The stay bright and are instant on - instant off. Only two minor drawbacks, They are coated with silicone and smell until fully cured and they are sticky to the touch and might attract dust. The glass envelope under the silicone is very fragile and in some fixtures the heat sync may need a bulb extender if the socket is narrow and deep. If the price breaks the $10 barrier for 100 watts they would be the holy grail of bulbs. Cree is a dependable product but who knows if they will be around to honor the 10 year warranty. I hope neither Cree or I have to worry about that. I would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Re-lamped and loving it! Just replaced 60 lamps with LED's in the dining room. Everything is brighter and I love the glow that these lamps give the glass--it's beautiful. Looking forward to the reduced cost of operation and saved man hours changing out lamps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless LED Light bulb The Cree LED light bulbs are supposed to last 10+ years. We purchased 6 of these bulbs less than 6 months ago and 3 of them have already gone bad. The LED light bulbs contain a voltage converter that is built into the base of the light bulb, the voltage converter which is an integral part of the light bulb is what goes bad. They have done a horrible job with design of their LED bulbs, purchase a different brand.

I could not be happier with the Cree LED dim-able bulbs. Great product. I would recommend Cree products to anyone.
