Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rochester Rob Good color of light.
This is a good bulb and I really like that it is assembled in the US. The light from it is indistinguishable from an incandescent. I did prefer the last generation of this bulb, however. Unlike the last generation, this bulb has a fraction of a second of hesitation before coming on. That is noticeable since this kitchen switch lights 3 of these, one of the last generation, and a standard style LED in an enclosed fixture.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unsatisfied Consumer LED housing separating and light does not work
this BR30 replacement was purchased in the last year. It does not light up, but when wiggled, it flickers on and off. Closer inspection reveals the white base is ever-so-slightly loose from the heat diffuser. It moves perhaps a 1/64th of an inch. Not sure if this is why it is broken. But either way, mailing something like this back to the manufacturer months down the line is a bit unrealistic for most folks. I have generally good results with Cree LED type A bulb replacements in the past.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1111 High failure rate
I bought 8 of these bulbs. The package prominently proclaims, "10 YEAR WARRANTY." I was surprised when after two weeks the bulbs started failing. It starts with a flicker; then after a few days the bulb is dead. After one year 7 of the 8 bulbs had failed. The only way to redeem the warranty is to package up the bulb and send it to North Carolina. The cost to send the bulb is almost as much as the cost of the bulb itself.
I'm very disappointed in this product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KenC Two out of four failed within one year
Installed this set of 4 bulbs on 6/5/15 and as of 5/23/16 two of the bulbs have died within days of each other. They were used in recessed lighting fixtures located in the kitchen. They were turned off daily before we went to bed. As of now the other two bulbs seem to be fine but I don't have much confidence in a lengthy life span.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hoang Junk, don't buy them
I bought 6 of these bulbs in November 2014 and within the last few months, 3 of them have failed with the 3rd one being today. They have a dim flicker, almost as if they were dimmed down to 5%. I don't have dimmable light switches so I know that isn't the case. Save your money and stay away from this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by swimmie 50% of bulbs burned out very early.
Bought these perhaps 18 months ago. Installed 8 in recessed cans, used under ordinary indoor living conditions. 3 have failed outright, 1 flickers incessantly. I'm a fan of other Cree products, but how can that outweigh the cost/failure rate here?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel Nice warm light, one out of 10 down
I love the color of the light, but I already lost one out of 10 bulbs. Hasn't even been a year. Not a good sign.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skee Not very happy with this product!
I bought these online through Home depot and was very excited about saving money and longer bulb life. But for the cost of these bulb are more, and maybe lasted 6 months. I wont be buying these again. 3 out of six bulbs went out in 5 1/2 months in my kitchen at around $16 a bulb. Not worth the effort or the money. I will try a different brand and see what happens.
