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 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SM66 bought it for our dog pen
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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Azimuth Avoid Cree
The bulb provides a nice soft light at appropriate color temperature and rendering, however it will not last. The LEDs will last 50,000 hours, but the cheap components inside (capacitors, coils, resistors) will only last about 1500 hours. They begin to flicker and flash and then will not light. I have gone through 6, all purchased at the same time and all died within a few months of each other.
