Customer Questions & Answers

If this light bulb buns out, who will stand behind it

Bought 2 bulbs, one burned out the other is blinking. Home Depot told me to call Cree
Asked by: Tony
I you did not save the UPC code and receipt, then no one. If you have both, which isn't likely for most people, then you can send it to Cree under the 10 year replacement warranty. Not very convenient.

Does it record noise

Asked by: Jw
We have four bulbs installed in a dining room light fixture - the buzzing drives me crazy! That said, the light fixture is on incandescent light dimmer. *Apparently* the buzzing will stop if we install the latest dimmer technology. We'll see.

Customer Reviews

40W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) A19 Dimmable LED Light Bulb is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 241.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dark spot at tip of bulb These are nice lights, but be aware the tip has a very noticeable dark spot. If used vertically, with the base down, it may not be an issue. However, I was hoping to use these in locations where the tip was down (bathroom fixtures) or sideways (hanging fixtures). In the tip down orientation, there is insufficient light cast downward. In the horizontal orientation, there is a dark spot visible through my fixture's frosted surround. Without the dark spot, this would be a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the soft white LED bulbs I have been an Incadescent bulb horder because I do not like the compact florescents. I have an art studio and paint. The compact florescents distort the colors of the paint - just a little. I have moved what I painted to a space with lots of natural light and have had that OMG that looks awful moment. I find the Soft White LED bulbs do not distort the colors. Much happier with the results. They are a little spendy but when life of the bulb and the reduced energy costs are factored in I think they probably win. Try a couple -- I think you will be happy you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LED for Home has finally arrived. Bought 2 of these (11-20-13) to try them out. I have been a big advocate of LED lighting for over 5 years, but have always had bad experiences with consumer LEDs. Mainly because the brightness was lacking and the color was unnatural. My wife would always roll her eyes when I would bring an LED bulb home, and, unfortunately, she had good reason. Until now that is. I unscrewed one soft white 40 watt incandescent (in a three-bulb fixture) and replaced it with this bulb, and we could not tell the difference. My wife was sincerely impressed. Will definitely be buying more. They are a bit pricey, but still a good value if you do the math vs. incandescent or even CFLs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Excellent LED Bulb Picking out a light bulb has become an act of congress with all the different choices. I've been looking for a good LED bulb that produces the right color of light. If you're looking for good "Tungsten style warm light" you've found it with this bulb. I am thrilled by these bulbs. I've purchased both the 40 and 60 watt versions for different applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lamp runs 30 degrees cooler than its 9.5 watt cousin When I tested the higher power 9.5 watt "cousin" in a 6 in. dia. globe-covered outdoor wall sconce, the bulb's heat sink ring temp (arguably cooler than the inside components being "cooled") rose to 193 degrees. By comparison, the 6 watt version, which uses the same size heat sink, rose to only 163 degrees, also with the cover installed (i.e., no air circulation). In a test on an open-bottom porch light, the 9.5 watt unit ran 209 degrees, while the 6 watt unit ran 180 degrees. (Temp measured with FLIR i7 infra-red camera.) CONCLUSION: The 6 watt unit will last a heck of a lot longer than the 9.5 watt cousin because the 30 degree temperature differential will have a HUGE effect on the life of the components in the electronic driver unit. Both units use a 220 degree rated capacitor inside, which degrades sharply when overcooked. It looks like the 6 watt unit will survive OK in enclosed fixtures, while the 9.5 watt version will suffer significantly reduced life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try one and decide for yourself For me they're a 100% positive experience... 1. Same color / brightness as my existing bulbs 2. The glass bulb stays cool 3. Looks exactly like a normal light bulb 4. Silent, no slight hum like my other CFL bulbs 4. Uses less juice, so NDB if kids forget to turn off 5. Inexpensive, about the same as 2 drinks at Starbucks Do what I did... pick up a few and give 'em a try. If you love 'em, great. Go back and buy 40 more like I did. If you hate 'em, ok fine. You haven't really wasted much. Oh, and two things I noticed from the other reviewers: "dark spot" - If I stare at the bulb when it's on, yeah, I can notice a darker spot on the top of the bulb. But for me, I couldn't care less. I've got about 10 downward-facing recessed cans in the celling. Each one has this bulb in it, and the light pattern shining down from above and bright and even. Looks exactly the same as when the CFL twisty bulbs where in there. "faulty" - Overall I bought about 50 of these bulbs. 49 of them worked perfectly. 1 was obviously faulty and flickered on and off. I got it replaced for free with no hassles. I don't expect 100% of everything I buy to work perfectly right out of the box. And when the replacement is hassle free, then that's a + in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bathroom Vanity light I've found I've tested a lot of LED's - my electricity is some of the most expensive in the US, and I have dimmers on all my light switches. I think the people that gave unfavorable reviews may not have had enough experience with LED's because there are certainly no perfect LED bulbs out there - especially at an affordable price. I tested the 6W side by side with another competing brand of similar style along with regular incandescent 60-watt bulbs - these were the brightest and most natural looking. The glass globe I think makes a big difference. Also the dark tip - for me it doesn't result in any issues with the downward pointed light - and in fact I put 3 styles of bulbs in a single fixture and then looked at the reflection on the countertop - and this bulb was very similar to a real filament bulb - so the dark spot doesn't take anything away - in fact it seems to make this so much more like a regular filament bulb. I'll be replacing all my bathroom vanity lights with this one over the next week. I don't have table lamps, but I assume they'd work great for that application as well. Also will note they dim pretty well; they are brighter than regular bulbs even at very low levels; they'll never be as linear as incandescent - but these are still great bulbs.
