It depends. The bulb itself does not get hot but the screw in base does. So what type of enclosure are you putting it in?

Answer: 
If you are referring to a fixture that has a glass globe around it etc. the answer is yes.
These bulbs produce some heat but minimal compared to a regular incandescent
bulb. There will however need to be some air and a bit of ventilation for the bulb enclosure.

Answer: 
In my experience, yes but it depends on the fixture. I had to adjust my kitchen two bulb fixture by screwing out the center post nearly all the way. Even then, it was a very tight fit. It may cause bulb failure. These bulbs are definitely larger than the tungsten bulbs. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Joe,
I use mine in the carriage lights on either side of my front door. I chose them for their efficiency and long life...not many episodes of tearing an outside light apart to change a bulb, and it's so cool to get the light coverage of 120 watts, while burning about 26.
A quick search of Home Depot's site tells me the same about enclosure. Have a brighter day/night!

ClintonAP, put your reading glasses on. Your choice of bulbs depends on what area you are lighting, how you use it, how many lights each ceiling fan takes, and whether there's other lighting in the room.

ClintonAP, put your reading glasses on. Your choice of bulbs depends on what area you are lighting, how you use it, how many lights each ceiling fan takes, and whether there's other lighting in the room.
1) Use bulbs that don't dim in the fixture that has no dimmer, it's way cheaper. If it's important to you to dim, Home Depot has Lutron light switches that have a dimmer built in, are easy to install, and you can then use the dimmable bulbs.
2) I did a quick look at the specs for bulbs you asked about, and CFL's seem to be taller by at least an inch, although I'm sure there are compact versions around. CFL's at 6..85", LED at about 5".
3) The "K" figures have more to do with the character of the output expressed in temperature/color. Soft white may have more yellow in it than Daylight, which is more color neutral.
4) Home Depot has LED 60 watt and 100 watt equivalents which actually use 10 to 15 Watts. The higher the equivalent wattage the pricier they become. Your choice of 60 Watt equivalent is about $4 plain and $8 dimmable. For a 100 watt dimmable equivalent LED bulb, expect to pay $20 a pop.
5) CFL's have Mercury and LED's don't. CFL's will likely outlive your dog, my LED's may outlive me.
6) Regardless of the ratings, use common sense; a ceiling fan like mine, with 4 bulbs would be terrifying with bright bulbs. Every morning I'd flip on the light, look in the mirror and be confronted with a fat, aging, balding guy who looks like the Michelin tire mascot. I'd dive back under the covers and wait for a power failure. I'll take the soft white, thank you, unless I want to do some reading.

Answer: 
Actually, I would not recommend the Cree LED at all. I was not happy with the tackiness of the coating they use on the bulb. It will be a dust collector for sure. I also found that they only dimmed to about 50% brightness. The Phillips I bought after returning the Cree dimmed down to less than 10% brightness.

Actually, I would not recommend the Cree LED at all. I was not happy with the tackiness of the coating they use on the bulb. It will be a dust collector for sure. I also found that they only dimmed to about 50% brightness. The Phillips I bought after returning the Cree dimmed down to less than 10% brightness.
Whatever you do, if you intend to use a dimmer, be sure the bulb is listed as "Dimmable" and is rated for the dimmer manufacturer and model you plan to use, or buy a new dimmer that matches one of the listed models. They have been tested and are certified to work with the bulb you choose. Otherwise, it is possible that the dimmer will not work or worse, the bulbs will flicker on and off like a strobe light.
The 2700K and 5000K you state refers to color temperature. I find the 5000 to 5500K sometimes listed as "Daylight" to be far too blue. It is an annoying shade of light and casts a ghost-like shade of light in a room. The 2200 to 2700K listed as Warm White is far too yellow, sometimes even pink. I find the most natural color to be 3000 to 3500K, which is listed as "Bright White". Often, the Bright White bulbs are not stocked by the stores, but they can be ordered on-line.
Lastly, if you are buying bulbs for a ceiling fan, make sure you buy the ones that are sold for that purpose. They are quite a bit smaller than the normal A19 size bulbs - the common size and shape for incandescent bulbs. If your fixture is enclosed, the LED also has to be rated For Enclosed Fixtures, or its life will be reduced significantly. LED bulbs are generally no bigger than CFL types.
Hope all of this helps. A lot to consider, but read the small print and pay attention to the recommendations and limitations stated, and you will be satisfied.. Read Less

5000K is a cool white like flourescent. Is that what you wanted for living space? 2700K is warm light.
Sorry but I don't know about the dimmer capabilities.
They are about the same size as incandescent but they are noticeably heavier. The earlier versions could not be put into closed or tight spaces in light fixtures (like hooded fixtures) due to premature burn out. I popped two in a few months. Read More

Answer: 
The choice between 5000K and 2700K is a matter of personal preference. If you are accustomed to incandescent bulbs and you like that color then 2700K would be better. The 5000K is much whiter and some people think it looks unnatural.
The overall length of this bulb is 4 and 1/4 inches from top to bottom.

The flickering is a precursor to the bulb failing, try to get it replaced under the warranty. The Cree bulbs have a tendency to fail prematurely. Try another brand.

Answer: 
I have never had one flicker. These bulbs are dimmable and if you get the power too low they will flicker a bit due to low voltage but you really would never set it that low anyway. If it is flickering, make sure the bulb is getting good contact on the sides and bottom of the socket. If it still flickers, you may have a rare bad bulb.

Poor quality - the light is defective and will go out completely.
Cree has quality control problems, and horrible customer service. I don't know how they will honor their 10 year warranty because they stopped making this bulb. If you ship it back for a replacement, they will send you the "new" cost reduced 4 flow cheap bulb - I recommend using another brand.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 947 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage 10+ year Home Depot employee here. I purchased nearly $500 in Cree bulbs (a mix of these and floods) when I purchased my new home in 2014, as these were said to be the king of LED bulbs. These have been by far the worst bulbs I have ever used. I have had nearly 25% of them begin to flicker or just flat out die in less than 2 years. I have even had ones that I replaced with slightly redesigned heat sinks die as well. This is a new house and there are no dimmers involved. Creee says maybe all my can lights, lamps, and bath fixtures are incompatible with LED. REALLY? And to get an exchange from them you have to keep the original receipt and UPC. Who saves a UPC on light bulbs? Nobody! You also have to pay to ship it back to them only to have it replaced with another piece of garbage. I refuse to recommend these to anybody looking to purchase LED bulbs. Stick to Philips! July 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible quality, durability and warranty Bought multiple lightbulbs and most of them have failed within one year. Don't waste your money on these. I also bought Philips lightbulb at same time and they are still going strong with no issues. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk worked for 3 months - 30 min a day. the warranty is for 10 years. you need to ship to cree with sales receipt but if you don't keep one it is waist of money June 10, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Here's a Disappointment I've already written a review about Cree's three-way bulbs and this is just clarification that I will no longer purchase Cree products. I had the impression that Cree was going to "make America great again", but I see no evidence of that in their manufacture of LED bulbs. In the past two years, I have switched all my home lighting to LED, with a couple remaining fluorescent bulbs. Most of my LEDs are made by Cree, but I'm finding better quality in Phillips, now that the Cree bulbs are failing. I'm confident that these bulbs get no more use than the incandescent bulbs they replaced, but they're failing in just two years of use. The glass bulb of one of these bulbs just fell off the wall into the sink and shattered, though the base of the bulb is still screwed in and the LED lights are still working. To Cree's credit, at least they enclosed the bulb in rubber, which prevented glass shards from being strewn throughout my bathroom. May 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Recommended 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. May 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brief life, not worth it 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. May 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't last a year Put this light bulb in our laundry room...didn't make it to one year. Pathetic...waste of money. May 20, 2016
