I purchased a total of four of these bulbs for use in a bathroom and a bedroom, with two bulbs in each location. They were fine for perhaps a year and a half, and then the bulbs started flickering. The flickering gradually grew more frequent, and then the bulbs started going out. In the end, after two years of service, three of the four bulbs were either flickering or dead. I'm not at all comfortable with a 75% failure rate over two years, particularly since the bulb has an expected minimum life of 10 years. As such, I would not recommend these bulbs to others; I have, in fact, had much better luck with other brands of LED bulbs and so do not purchase any "standard"-style Cree bulbs anymore. The Cree recessed lighting units I've purchased have been fine, apart from one that has a high-pitched hum, so I know not all Cree products are poor.

I've bought 24 of these Cree bulbs in 2014 for use throughout our house. They've gotten average use of a few hours a day each. Over the months, a stunning 15 of them have burned out. Total junk.

Put this light bulb in our laundry room...didn't make it to one year. Pathetic...waste of money.

I have been replacing all light bulbs in the house with LED bulbs. Bought these for the new Chandelier I also bought at Home Depot. They work great and are bright.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Larry dead after maybe 18 months
I bought quite a few of these from Home Depot. About 18 months later, 3 of them are dead. In fact, they're not completely dead, just putting out a very weak light and needed to be replaced. When LED packages say they should last 20 years I don't take it completely seriously because it's obviously an estimate and not based on actual testing, but this is unacceptable. I will say that the electricity savings were at least as good as I was expecting, but I would expect that from any brand of LED bulb. I'll be shopping for a different brand and I'll do more research this time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by troybal Burnt out after 2 years
So I purchased about a dozen of these Cree light bulbs as i wanted to go LED. However after 26 months, 4 of them have failed. I believe I can do better with just regular bulbs! Come on Cree, you got to do better than that.
