In an effort to be energy conscious, I bought a number of the Cree 3-way light bulbs at a cost of over $20 each. Using them for about 2 hours every evening for the past 6 months, I have now had 3 of them burn out even though they are guaranteed for 25,000 hours. I have sent two back to Cree and have received only one replacement. So beware when you spend this much on a light bulb. Either the technology is not yet able to support a 3-way bulb or Cree makes a substandard product. I have just ordered 4 3-way LEDs made by Phillips and we'll see if they are better. (None of my 100 watt LED equivalents made by Phillips have burned out in over a year.)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OrderUp LED Light blubs are enviromentally friendly and work well
While the LED light blubs are expensive they seem to be as good as the old fashion light blubs and are better for the environment. I only received my order about 2 weeks ago so I can't comment on longevity of the blub. I would purchase this product again and recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GoPack83 Great product
Great product. The right color, very good brightness. Perfect drop-ins for my table lamps that otherwise use pricey, short-lived (3-way incandescents my experience lose the low-levels in several months) incandescents. At 3W for the low level, it's hardly worth the effort to turn it off and makes an effective night light. Best Cree bulb yet IMO, and while pricey, the payback should be quicker for 3-way than one-level lamps, because in addition to reducing power consumption by 80-90%, they will actually still be 3-way bulbs for years. Note - I did have to bend one harp (the piece that goes around the bulb to support the shade) on one of my lamps because the diameter of this bulb is a bit larger than incandescent.

My order of 3 arrived yesterday. They fit our table lamps perfectly. The light is indistinguishable from the incandescent 3-ways they replaced. Perfect replacement. Made in Durham, NC and NOT in China. Feels good to support a local business who employs over 400 individuals at their plant.

This bulb is just like the old incandescent in color the low setting is warm and the next 2 setting up from there are perfect for reading nice and crisp. Just wish the price would come down a little more but still a good value. The Cree LEDs are closest to the real thing not like earlier versions of the led which were harsh on the eyes or not brght enough.
