Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Qarolyn My first LED light bulb
This was the first LED bulb I bought, and I am very happy with it. It provides a nice bright light without an artificial look. The soft white is just right for our fixture. We put it inside a new garage fixture which was the perfect choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matt Good bulb, inconsistent manufacturing.
Nice bulb that puts out even 360 degree light, unlike many cheap LED bulbs (which are usually more omnidirectional). The light is warm and equivalent to the incandescent bulbs I used beforehand. These Cree models with the larger heat sink are better than the newer "cheap" 4-flow models in my opinion.
The only problem is inconsistency in manufacturing. I had bought 2 of this exact model a few months earlier and both of those have a rubbery coating on them that disperses the light very evenly. The one I received does not have this coating and looks different in the breakfast bar fixtures I put them in. While the other 2 bulbs are lit evenly, you can see the LED filament inside this one and the bottom of them bulb is darker. The difference isn't enough to return the bulb but you can definitely see the difference when you look at the lit bulbs. I still recommend this bulb over any other LED bulbs.

Trying to save on electricity I replaced all the bulbs in my house with the Cree. Only time will tell how good they are.

This bulb is perfect for the new light fixture we installed in a family room remodel.

Just switched to led bulbs. I had no idea my house was SO dark! Warm color instead of that weird blue color. Just waiting to see if they last as long as the claim.

I've replaced most bulbs with led bulbs for the last couple of yrs.
this morning, the cover of bulb was falling down . I didn't know led bulb has this defect. cree gives 10 yrs warranty but to get their warranty, I have to send request mail with some documents which I don't keep for one bulb.

Purchased 5 of these 18 months ago and three have already failed. 10 year warrantee not worth it when you have to mail them back.
There are better options out there do not waste your money on these

If you have been waiting, like I have, for a great LED bulb this is the one. True warm white (2700k) just like your regular bulbs, small enough to fit in almost any lamp or fixture, even lower power consumption than CFLs, dimmable, they look like a standard glass incandescent bulb, bright 800 lumens, the bulb emits its light in all directions like a regular bulb (many don't shine down) and they are priced right!
In Hawaii, where electricity costs over 40¢/kwh I will save almost $400 in electricity per bulb over its lifetime. Since they should last 25,000 hours I may never need to replace a bulb again, every lamp in my home is now LED!
