Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bender Product is not reliable, starts failing around 2-3 years.
I purchased about 2 dozen of the 60 watt soft white equivalent Cree bulbs about 26 months ago. 3 have completely failed and 2 more are making a low humming noise. None of these bulbs are on a dimmer so that is not the source of the hum. Also, these bulbs will dim over time and not put out as much light. I contacted Cree about the first two failed bulbs and they did replace them but with the much cheaper 4Flow bulbs that only have a 3 year warranty. The third bulb crapped out less than a week after the 4Flow replacements arrived so I will have to go through the process of getting that one replaced.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DeForger Failing bulbs, falling apart, 2 years old.
I purchased the Cree classic 60 watt equivalent bulb listed here. I paid $12.99 each + tax. I purchased 30. I had one broken in the package and one fail after 1 week. I blew that off to shipping damage. I had them about 18 months and found one of the bulbs glass globe fell off. I emailed Cree. They told me to dispose of the bulb . They would sent a new one. On the second try the sent me the four flow bulb. This has less of a warranty and is totally open making it useless in damp conditions. Cree said they discontinued the old style bulbs (what is being sold here!) and the four flow was the new replacement. Now at 20 months I had two more bulbs replaced for flickering and total failure. Cree replaced with another four flow blub. Now almost 2 years old I have three more bulbs that the globes fell off, one of which is blinking. I now have to call again. I can understand a few failures but these all seem to be a design issue. I Paid for a long lasting, cost saving bulb that has not last as a normal bulb would. Would not recommend. Cree get your act together! These bulbs projected light just like a soft white bulb which is why I purchased them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Enlightened Cree bulb failure
As in other reviews the bulb lasted about 18 months then failed. After reading the other similar stories I will not purchase Cree again. I hold Home Depot equally responsible for continuing to sell this junk.

I built a inside pen for our new dogs and this was to be used for a nightlight. I hope they (my dogs) think it helps them know we care for they're safety.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dhomerepair 3 of 4 failed in 2.5 years
I purchased 4 of these bulbs from Home Depot on Dec 1, 2014 and by Aug 2016 3 of them had failed.
Trying to see if they are under warranty from Cree. They were great while they worked but I only got about 2000 hours out of them so not really worth the cost compared to standard bulbs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BigW Do not buy Cree Brand, they do not last. The Cree LED bulbs are the only ones that have ever burned out on me.
Over the last 2 years I have replaced every bulb in my house with LED ones, I bought several different brands including FEIT, Cree, ET, and Energetic. The Cree ones have all burned out while all of the others were less money and are all still working fine.
