Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Reader Failed after 14 months
I bought over $250 of Cree LED bulbs from Home Depot. I spent quite a bit to get a 3 way bulb for a bedroom lamp. I am shocked at how quickly it failed. 1 other bulb failed within the first month. I had read Cree was the best LED but I doubt I will buy Cree again given this failure rate.

I bought one of these Led lightbulbs a year ago to see how well it worked, well it died today. So much for the long lifetime claims.

Finally a great light bulb to complement my art lamps. These Cree LED 3-way light bulbs are pleasing to the eye-soft white ....quiet (no CFL buzzing )...instant on with the light you need - from mood to task.
I make all my own paper lampshades and these LED bulbs will actually make my shades last longer with less heat and yellowing. These bulbs are super efficient - using only 18 watts (looks like 100 watts) and they are even made in the USA. As a full time artist I really need to watch my materials costs....but these bulbs are really worth the price.

I've replaced this bulb 4 times in the past year. I use it mainly on the low level for just a few hours a day. Twice it died when switching levels. Forget the warranty, I just buy another and return the dead bulb with the new receipt.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SMJMD We bought a 3 way for bedside light. IT DIED
We bought a couple of these bulbs to check the warmth and brightness as many LED's come no where near the claimed light or color. Well those 2 things were pretty good, but it has already died, completely, 100%, kaput at all 3 levels. Less life expectancy than an old fashioned incandescent bulb despite a 10 year warranty on the packaging. I'd like to see what sort of customer service we can get on this, if we get a new bulb sent w/o questions I'll raise the rating.

I agree with with the other reviews, these are great bulbs. Unfortunately I've had a 6 month old Cree 3-way bulb quit-no more life. I purchased 6 of these bulbs so I guess that's a pretty good average, but with a 10 year life guarantee, I no longer have the "proof of purchase"- who holds onto receipts for light bulbs that long? I now have to replace it...let the research begin.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by aeg4242 Would not buy again
We recently converted our entire home to LEDs, using a variety of brands. However, some friends told us that Cree was supposed to be the best, so we "splurged" on two 3-way bulbs for the main lamps in our living room. Well, it's about 3 months later and guess which two bulbs are the ONLY ONES that have failed. We replaced them with standard 7W LEDs for now while we search for another 3-way brand that will actually last the many years it promises. Poor value, especially considering how much more expensive these are compared to other brands.

We purchased these LED bulbs on line as they were on sale. Had one problem, one of the bulbs in our lamp kept flickering. We put it in another lamp and it still did the same thing. The problem was trying to get Home Depot to give us credit for the bulb, so we could get another one. It was a problem because it was bought in a box of 5. After three calls, Friday, Monday, Wednesday promising each time they would send it to my Email within hours, I finally received it.
