Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Lighting is good, reliability not so good
I bought 4 Soft White 75 Watt Replacement bulbs approx 18 months ago. 2 have already stopped working. The quality of light they give off is great, however, if all are this unreliable, the cost cannot be justified especially since they are rated at 25,000 hours. The bulbs are used less than 2 hours per day.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by etc Bulbs good for 3-6 months then start failing and/or lose brightness
Have 10 dead right now (see pic I have 52 of these, count the packages if you don't believe me, and definitely a 70% or more failure rate over the past year).
Not a month goes by that more don't die, and all home depot will do is replace like for like (and then the news ones eventually go out). Very disappointed as these were labeled as a 10 year bulb!
It is simply too labor intensive to keep changing them and then having to drive to Home Depot for an exchange. Wish Home Depot would let me switch, I spent 52*$15.97+tax for these and have my receipts.
The ones that don't die lose about 40% of their brightness after 6 months too.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jasperdog Failed after 16 months - calling Cree
This bulb is probably no longer available, but one of them failed after 16 months of 2-3 hours per day usage. I'll call Cree tomorrow and see if they will replace it. It's also very heavy, since it has a heat sink around the base, but on the plus side, the bulb itself isn't over-sized like some LEDs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by isobassbike Great lighting choice
The light given off from this bulb is far superior to incandescent or CFL.

This LED bulb lasted less than 3 years. Should have lasted at least 10 years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sfurbish55 A good LED 75w equivalent replacement
I've been converting my home to LED for two years now and I've bought 6 of these Cree Bulbs. They emit a nice even soft white light and work well in open ceiling enclosures. I've also used Philips LEDs and Sylvania LEDs. The Philips (60 watt eq) seem to work well, but I've had multiple issues with my Sylvania LEDs. The Crees are superior in quality to anything else I've tried.
