Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stevefromtheburbs Been using these since they came out....a good value, long lasting
I've been using these CREE bulbs since they came out a few years ago.....all in all, I'm happy with them although they don't really last as long as they say - then again, none of them really do. But I've had good luck, no recalls, no fires, they stay fairly cool, and the give off a realistic light. They also represent a good value and are consistently good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tooltimes great light output
we have two lights in the kitchen that takes three bulbs,have them on motion detection switches and with the CFL bulbs it only works two CFL bulbs or they flicker all the time and have to put in a regular bulb for them to work correctly,with the LED bulbs it works great and no need for a regular bulb and they come on instant so you don't have to wait for them too warm up to get a bright light when they come on,really great output of light for all the LED bulbs on the market and great price,can't wait too change all the lights in the house now :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllenBBQ Put 18 of these on my wife's vanity mirror - looks like a Hollywood dressing area!
My wife wanted a makeup mirror like the Hollywood actresses (presumably) use. She wanted daylight balanced bulbs and needed something that wouldn't burn hot, but would be very bright. 18 of these around the mirror did the trick! She can see perfectly every inch of her face and knows exactly how the makeup is laying around every contour.

I have been a long time user of CFL bulbs, but had never purchased an LED bulb until I needed to replace the incandescent bulbs in my refrigerator. CFL bulbs do not reach full brightness very quickly in cold environments, and do not last as long when frequently turned on and off for short periods. Incandescent bulbs use more energy and produce a lot of heat, which is bad in a refrigerator.
These bulbs produce a very clean, bright white (with a crisp blueish hue), and the wash of light covers all directions very evenly. I have seen many new high-end refrigerators with LED lighting, and the color of these bulbs is virtually identical.
This is a simple upgrade that saves energy, reduces heat, and gives the refrigerator a very modern updated appearance. Highly recommended!

This bulb was an impulse buy because they were on sale at HD. I failed to notice that the bulb was the Daylight version. I placed it in the fixture on the side of my garage but the light was a little harsh and bluish. I moved it to inside the garage but personally prefer soft white light. Cree bulbs may not be the best looking LED bulbs but they are a great value.

Its not going to solve the worlds problems or bring about world peace. Nor will it bake a pizza or grill a pork chop. It does illuminate my kitchen table. It works fine. Personally I don't care for this style of light, but my wife insists so I tolerate It, so I can stay out of the doghouse. Its a lightbulb. What more do you want me to say about it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tom Not good in exposed bulb fixture
I bought this bulb to replace some CFL bulbs (due to long warm up time of CFL) in kitchen fixtures where the bulb is exposed. The CFL's I had been using are the ones with the glass globe around the fluorescent tube (the tube element is NOT exposed). For some reason this type of CFL takes WAY longer to come up to full brightness compared to normal exposed tube CLF's. Most of my bulbs are exposed tube CFL's hidden in fixtures. The exposed tube CFL's take under a minute to reach full brightness. The ones with the extra globe around the fluorescent tube take up to 5 minutes to reach full brightness.
This LED has a ring of LEDS that is VERY bright. So bright that it is blinding if viewed directly. The CFL does a great job of distributing the illumination across the surface of the globe (similar to an old fashioned incandescent bulb). The ring of LED's in this bulb is WAY too bright to use this bulb in an application where it can be viewed directly. Please see attached pictures of LED bulb and CFL.

Good design essentials example 1- medium base the standard used almost everywhere 2- has a rubber like film on glass if dropped glass pieces won't fly all of the room stays together but broken nice feature 3- good for the environment it has no mercury 4- LED's have a much much longer life than compact fluorescent's examples are traffic lights,electronic equipment,TV's,electronic signs 5- LED's on average use less power, generates less heat and is dimmable also has no ballast one item that goes out frequently with CFL's an regular fluorescent fixtures. I would also highly recommend people look at the color or K rating for example a 60w 2000K is not as bright as a 60w 5000K even if the lumens are the same also check the lumens of the lamp your trying to replace i'm sorry lumens are a measure of the total "amount" of visible light emitted by a source Google to read more. It would be great if prices would drop they could push CFL's out of the market in some areas.
