Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bman Great Daylight bulbs
I'm looking forward to years of savings with these attractive bulbs--a big improvement (functionally, aesthetically) over CFLs.
My girlfriend wanted the Daylight bulbs (6 total) for our bathroom vanity. I worried that the intense white would be too harsh, but it turned out to be a huge improvement over the yellow soft whites that they replaced. We're sticking with the Warm White for our living spaces, but the Daylight bulb is ideal for the bathroom.

These are rated at 60W but you would think they were 75W or 100W. So far, I am really impressed with these bulbs. I have already purchased 27 bulbs and plan on buying morfe until I have them in every room in the house!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adele57 Love these BULBS!
We tried other brands but they weren't as inexpensive and seemed to work around the same. Also Cree says Assembled in the USA right on them. That makes them a little better than China made and assembled. We always go with the daylight ones and not the soft white because we like the brighter light, less eye strain to me. For LEDs these are the bulbs we turn too.

I am completely satisfied with another exceptional product Home Depot has made available and the accompanying service. The bulbs are brighter than the description would initially lead one to believe The product was delivered well ahead of the estimated delivery date as has been my experience with all orders through this company.

Excellent Product. But comparing with CFLs bulbs, I guess it's too expensive yet (may be it's comparable after 10 years). Dimmable option is not important to me. I need six more, but I'm going to wait the price down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith Cree Makes the Best LED's
I have tried several brands of led's, and returned them all, except for Cree. These are the most similar to a standard bulb. Used these particular bulbs in two fixtures in my bathroom (one on each side of the medicine cabinet). They do not give off heat like incandescents and are better for rooms where the light is turned on and off frequently, unlike fluorescent bulbs.

These bulbs are much brighter and whiter than incandescents while using a lot less power. Have been replacing bulbs with these LEDs as the old ones burn out. They look great and have not had any of these burn out.
If you like a soft white look then go for the similar bulbs with a different color temperature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Creepro1 I recommend to everyone I see bulb shopping
The daylight bright light is a step above the soft white. It is worth the slight extra cost. These bulbs outperform the old incadecent bulbs. They are mercury free and made in USA. A real winning combination.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Greg cree 60w daylight bulbs
ordered these, when they arrived, only one was a daylight bulb. Sent them back, and had to re order them. a month after first order, I got what I wanted. They work great, however, it would be nice if they made a more powerful bulb, like 100w or 125 watts. But 2 bulbs in one light puts out a lot of light, you need a y adapter for a19 bulbs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Reduced electric draw by nearly 90%
My wife likes a bright bathroom, room had 12 - 60 watt bulbs (720 watts), you could feel the heat but she would have liked it brighter. and too much wattage to add a dimmer (for me). These bulbs are brighter for her, I like that they can be dimmed, total, i think is about 125 watt now, and the dimmer saves additional 25%
on full bright and makes the bulbs last even longer.
Did I say these are GREAT, they are!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pear Great light (it's really white) - mfg quality not so good
The color and brightness of these are great. I've gone from CFL to LED lights over the past 3 years and these are finally the light temperature and brightness of the good old hot incadescents. Only issue I had is that two of the bulbs, the globes came off while screwing them in - have some super glue handy as this is easily remedied. Perhaps CREE manufactured these too quickly or didn't use enough glue on the bulb covers.

This is a very high quality bulb. The light is truly equal to an old 60W incandescent. The daylight color adds an upbeat look to our home while keeping colors true. The bulb itself seems quite rugged and able to stand up to almost any condition it would be subjected to.

I have 30 years working in the high tech industry and have spent lots of my years working around electronics. I read magazines on the latest trends in products being released, and I had been watching a liquid cooled LED light bulb called switch lighting from switchlightingco, because they produced a bulb that conquered the overheating problem that carried a long warranty. Once I seen these bulbs though, I knew this was the one to buy, as CREE is an LED leader in the world. I bought 7 of these bulbs and they all work great and give out a perfect crisp white light that has greatly increased the light in the dining room and my home office. I cannot say enough good about my first impressions of these light bulbs. I am planning on buying at least $200 more of these to place all around the house in the fixtures in the bedroom, the garage, the family room, and even the bathrooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Works as advertised. A true dimmable LED light bulb.
This is the first incandescent light bulb REPLACEMENT that I have found that has true full range dimmability. I have searched and tested no less than 30 products and returned every one UNTIL NOW. Cree has figured out the technology and Home Depot was wise to get them as a trusted supplier of quality product. The first product that you can reliably replace incandescent in lighting where dimming is important.

FINALLY!! Low energy bulbs that fit in normal fixtures!!!!
With the political ban on normal incandescent bulbs, it is nice to have a light bulb that will actually fit in the fixtures that have been in use for more than five years.
The daylight white light from these bulbs provides better quality light than would be expected from an incandescent 60W bulb.

I absolutely LOVE these LED light bulbs. They give off very good light and are saving on my electric bill. They are bright when you first turn them on, unlike CFL bulbs. I'll eventually replace all the bulbs in my house with these. Thanks CREE for a great product!

I love these light bulbs. Bright lights and save energy and good for the environment. Only one problem: the glass dome case doesn't glue well. It came off after five months of use. Luckily I can still use it because my ceiling light comes with its own glass cover.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tjcraftsman Wife didn't like them
Sorry to say but these lights buzz a bit when dimmed which makes them annoying to my wife for the dining room chandelier where I installed them. I think they will need to be relegated to other lighting where no dimming is used.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Danl These bulbs hum at high frequencies on Lutron setable Toggler C-L dimmer switches
We just bought 16 Cree bulbs at HD last week - 60 watt daylight. I have found in the last week, that the problem with using LED bulbs on Dimmer switches, is that EVEN IF you use a set-able ELV or non ELV dimmer switch, that is supposedly compatible (according to either the bulb and dimmer switch manufacturers) with dim-able LED bulbs,. the bulbs still may hum at high frequencies, as I have found out after using several different supposedly compatible dimmer switches. The bulbs work fine, you just may hear a high frequency low volume hum - or buzz if you want to call it that. It was hard for me to hear, but my wife has good hearing at the high frequencies and she can hear it. We have 8 Cree 60 watt daylight bulbs in our kitchen on one dimmer and even I can hear it a bit.
The proof is both from my experience in swapping out dimmer switches all week long, AND what the dimmer switch manufacturers post on their compatibility list.
For example, on the Lutron web site, titled "Dimmable CFL & LED bulbs", their disclaimer on their list states, and I quote:
"What does “compatible” mean?
Compatible means that the bulbs can be dimmed, although the bulb’s dimming performance may not match what you’re used to seeing when dimming an incandescent or halogen bulb. These bulbs have also been electrically tested to confirm that the control may be used up to its full rated CFL/LED load without affecting the life of the control.
Products on this list are considered compatible with the respective Lutron C·L dimmers. Depending on the quality of the bulb you select, compatible bulbs may still:
- have less dimming range than an incandescent or halogen bulb
- dim less smoothly than an incandescent or halogen bulb
- flicker or shimmer at certain light levels
So in other words, even if a particular LED bulb is dim-able, even if it is supposedly compatible with a dimmer switch, it still may hum or flicker.
The problem here is industry standards for using dimmer switches with LED bulbs. There are none. There are none, as it pertains to humming of the bub. If there were such industry standards as per humming, then every LED bulb would not hum on every compatible non humming dimmer switch.
So unless you want to spend weeks buying, testing and then returning dimmer switches on your particular brand of LED bulb to see if it hums or not, I would recommend that you just use a simple on and off switch with your LED bulbs until these LED and dimmer switch companies can get their ACTS together and set some standards so that LED bulbs don't hum, and people don't have to waste their time swapping out dimmer switches.
A simple on off switch is cheap, and it won't buzz like the dimmers. So don't waste your time or money trying to find a dimmer switch for your bulb, until the bulb and dimmer switch manufacturers get their act together on industry standards for humming.
This is what I am going to do.
I am giving Cree 2 start because their bulbs on a non dimmer switch works great, but until all of these manufacturers get their act together the jury is still out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HadorNYC They are worth the money
I'm a fan of anything that will save me money. These bulbs make sense in any place that is on for long periods a day, or are in places that are hard to reach. I put 4 of these in my bathroom, and the light is bright and clear. I actually compared two of my CFLs to two of these in the 4 socket fixture. I also compared to incandescents. I like them better, but I can understand if folks don't agree with me.
I prefer LEDs over CFLs for two reasons, instant on to full brightness, and no mercury. I have put them into a table lamp that itself was plugged into a watt meter, and the power usage for all 6 bulbs is as rated. That is less than the CFLs I was using, and significantly less than incandescents.
No humming nor other problems with cheap LEDs as I have experienced in the past.
Thus, they save me money, (I live in a high electric cost area in the USA), are instant on (a huge annoyance for me), and I like the quality of the light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jontj2000 9-watt (60w) A19 Dayligh (5000K) Dimmable Led Light
I ordered the six pack and have so far been very well pleased. I have some GE 11W that produce 60 watts. These I save two watts. I have two large yellow tint shade lamps in corners. The light being white makes the globes show so much more light. I highly recommend these bulbs if you want a brighter white light. I will buy more and love the saving in energy for each one I use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BroncosFanInAL Great bulb, Daylight too bright for some applications
The Cree LED lightbulb is fantastic as a replacement to incandescents, but I would caution on the "Daylight" version. It is searing bright and not suitable for living areas or kitchens. It is, however, great for closets or garages. I mistakenly purchased 12 of these, and struggled to find places for them where they wouldn't blind my family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lorraine Love these light bulbs. Made in the USA too
I was so happy to get rid of the CFR bulbs from China that contain Mercury which you practically need a hazmat team to clean up if one breaks in your home. I purchased Soft White and Daylight. The soft white has sort of a yellow cast similar to the CFR and incandescent bulbs. The Daylight is a bright white light and I mean Bright. Since I bought 6 of each I was replacing all of the bulbs inside my house. I found that 1 of the daylight bulbs was so bright I did not need to put any bulbs in the rest of the sockets so I have some that are empty. Do not use the bright whites if the bulb is mostly exposed and pointing right at your face like in a fixture on a ceiling fan where the bulb is pointed right at your face because it is really bright and it may be annoying or maybe my eyes are just more sensitive. I love both bulbs and I am so glad I bought them. ANy CFR's that I replaced that are still working fit in the CREE bulb plastic packaging and I have them stored in my garage to be used in outside fixtures only so I have no mercury bulbs inside my house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Love the instant on and off bulb, compares to incadescent lighting not harsh at all
I love this bulb. Very pleased with the light it puts out. Not harsh lighting at all. I like how the light goes instantly on and off. I like the coating on the bulb so if the bulb would break it is contained within the coating. Safe for the environment and NO MERCURY!! I will definitely be purchasing more of this brand of bulbs. Cree is the best!!

IWe are extremely happy with these Cree LED light bulbs. They are very bright. We preferred the daylight color. We were so impressed with the quality and promptness of delivery we ordered another 6 pack. One bulb was damaged in shipping. I had two options. One have another one mailed to me or two exchange it at my local store which I did. Great service great product.
