Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bigdog Still not there.
Solid bulb an well built. Dims better than most, but when dimmed, the light is an ugly gray-green which makes room unpleasant. It does not dim to the warm color . . . at all. At full brightness, the color is great and matches standard bulbs. I bought 4 and was going to buy 8 more for kitchen, but when dimmed, the light is just to unpleasant. Why spend a bunch making your house look good, but then light it with terrible lighting. I tested against 3 other LED bulbs. Costco was the worst and the cheapest and did not dim well. G7 from amazon makes probably the best light as it is a bit warmer at full brightness and when dimmed, but was a plastic lens. If you just need full brightness, these are great. Hope that helps.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RJJ21 Excellent replacement for standard BR30
This product produced light equivalent in brightness and color to my Feit 75W standard bulb. I am unable to tell a difference between them. The neck of the Cree bulb is larger than a standard bulb so if you have a narrow opening to the socket this might not fit. Bulb is cool to the touch and has a rubberized texture that makes it easy to install without dropping. With a power draw one tenth of the standard bulb I expect to see savings over the lifetime of the bulb.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tmick Looks just like incandescent
It looks the part when off or on. Light output and color accuracy are what you expect from a PAR30. New price makes it a 100% winner.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jack Nice Bulbs But..
I was glad to be rid of the CF's that I had because on cold mornings the CF's took way too long to warm up and get bright. I bought 5 of these LED in May (now September) but have had to return 2 so far. The 2 that I replaced had started blinking and finally 1 of them shut off for good.
I never adjust the dimmer and leave it turned up to full brightness so I doubt the dimmer was the cause of the blinking. I read another reviewer here who had the same issue.
I am so pleased that I have bright lights right away (no warm up time like CF's) that I rated them 4 star plus I am at Home Depot frequently so returning them was barely an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jabomi Great bulb though not as warm as incandescent
We replaced the six incandescent bulbs in our kitchen with these about a month ago. These appear to put out slightly more light, and the light is slightly cooler than the incandescent bulbs. These differences are noticeable but not distracting (an occasional visitor would probably not be able to tell we have different bulbs). We do not use the dimming feature. Given what we paid for these and our electricity rates, these will pay for themselves after about 2500 hours of use. That's good, but I think the price is still a little too high.
