Rated 4 out of 5Â by AlinPhilly Great light, but with one caveat
These "75 Watt" bulbs seem quite a bit brighter than the standard incandescent bulbs they replace. I have 6 (3 sets of two fixtures) lighting up my large (24x10) kitchen, and they more than handle the job. The color temperature seems a touch higher (bluer) as well, although the colors seem a bit more natural looking than with conventional bulbs.
The ceiling lamps which these placed in are switched through a standard Leviton dimmer/switch, and here's the one caveat about the bulbs: they don't always kick on if the dimmer is set at a very low level, you need to start them at full or near to full voltage. I'm not sure if this is how they operate as a single bulb, or more of a function of 6 bulbs running off of one dimmer. It's not a big deal, just something which is a little different. Doing it over, I might have opted for using six 60 Watt bulbs and dimmed them less; then again I do like the brightness the 75 Watt bulbs provide when you really need it when cleaning.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with these bulbs and am sure that they'll pay off in the years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sigawa Another great bulb from Cree
Ever since I bought the 60W soft white bulbs from Cree, I've been waiting for them to release a higher watt bulb. So I was really happy to finally get my hands on these for my office space. I use them for my barn style pendant lights.
Good color (close to an incandescent), low power, great build quality but a little pricey especially when you need more than a dozen. I can't speak to how well they work when you dim them because I don't use that feature but overall, I would definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Acorn Great bulbs for our lamps and fixures
Good solution for lamps and fixtures that need a little more light than the Cree "60w" bulbs. Light looks good and bulb works great replacing traditional bulbs. The base flares out a little more above the socket, but it was only a problem in 1 lamp that had an extra tall, narrow tube covering the socket. Cut the tubing down a little. It looks and works beautifully. The base can get a little hot, so handle by the coated glass.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pickyshopper01 Just like a 75 watt bulb but without the energy waste
There are a bunch of LED bulbs out there that are either really expensive or low quality. This bulb is the best value out there with no quality compromise

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Youngcrv Totally worth it.
Great bulb. Brighter than the 100 watt equivalent CFL that it replaced that had a long startup time. This bulb is instant, bright, and uses less energy.
