Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Koreen 60W EQUIVALENT DAYLIGHT (5000K) A19 DIMMABLE LED LIGHT BULB
The light bulbs are bright, a bit pricy but if they last as long as promised I will be very pleased. They are stronger than the typical light bulb.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by akStore1942 How Long Did Those 4/5 Star Reviewers Have Bulbs Before Providing Feedback?
Asking because most people who gave the product 1 star offered a lifetime estimate of their failing bulbs. Adding to that list, I gave one a shot in my bedroom lamp and the light quality was great. It only lasted 6 months however with average use time.

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 :-)

Just like many other purchasers these bulbs fail to last. I bought 2 dozen to replace all the bulbs in the house. The man at Home Depot assured me that if they fail you simply return to the store. Not true at all. Many have failed and went back to Home Depot and they said contact the manufacturer. Who does that? Switching to Phillips and hope they are built to last because Cree is a FAILURE. Live and learn. With that many failures you know it is the manufacturer issue and not a simple bad bulb. Please avoid.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DisappointedBuyer Do not buy Cree LED light bulbs. They do not last.
About 3 years ago I bought six 9 W Cree LED light bulbs for inside use. Over time, one by one failed. Yes, you can send them in and receive a replacement bulb. However, the replacement bulbs did not last longer. I gave up paying for mailing them back to the company and bought LED bulbs from a different manufacturer (Feit). No problem with the competitor's product. It was an expensive mistake to buy Cree LED light bulbs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ConcreteHome Beware -- High Failure Rate
I purchased 3 dozen or so of these Cree bulbs for installation within my new, energy-efficient home. Within a couple months of installation, half a dozen Cree bulbs had failed. They start flashing/flickering, then quit altogether. These bulbs were installed in very low-use areas (e.g., hallways and a storage room). When the bulbs worked, they had a nice, bright light.
Cree's "warranty" is a joke. Defective bulbs must be returned to Cree HQ with the purchase receipt and the UPC from the original packaging. I had my HD purchase receipts on hand for the bulbs, but had not retained the UPC codes from the (long since discarded) packaging.
I have purchased another 5 or 6 dozen TCP bulbs -- a little bit brighter, no center 'dark spot' like the Crees and significantly cheaper. Best of all is zero bulb failures after 18 months with the TCP bulbs.

We had a new Energy Star Certified home built in 2013 and I decided to use the Cree 60w daylight bulbs in all of our light fixtures. The fact that these bulbs are assembled in the USA helped me decide on purchasing them. The energy savings has been incredible!
One problem I am starting to notice is in the master bedroom and master bath the lights have started to turn completely off for a fraction of a second inn both rooms separate circuits. In the master bedroom I have one light that will go completely off. I had our electrical provider come out and check to make sure there was nothing loose at our main or in our breaker box. I also checked to make sure the bulb was tight enough. I guess I get to go through the process of returning the lights I am having trouble with.

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.
