Rated 5 out of 5Â by greenmachine they look and work great
as long as these last a long time it will be well worth it. Look just like the bulbs I replaced in my bathroom fixture.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Capnhairdo Excellent light quality
Just picked up 4 of the new CREE LED bulbs today--the 40 watt & 60 watt equivalents, in both the regular soft white and "TW" full-spectrum soft white models. Tried them out in our dining room chandelier, alongside some GE Reveal incandescents (the only incandescents left in our house). Very impressed with the TWs. At full brightness, the light quality is indistinguishable from the Reveals (even had some guests try to guess which were the LEDs, and most got it wrong!). The dimming is very smooth, actually better than the incandescents, which are red-orange at low levels, while the LEDs are a dim but true white. The light distribution is also very good, except at the very top of the bulb--but that's not visible in this fixture. I'll definitely be picking up more of these TWs.
The regular CREE soft whites are more efficient but inferior in several other ways. The light distribution is worse--it's brightest around the hemisphere of the bulb, while the top and bottom are dim. The light quality looks almost gray by comparison to the TWs, and they don't dim as nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by None Cree 40 watt soft white bulbs BEST ever .
Purchased the Cree 40 watt soft white led bulb online as store could not keep up with demand . They're a Great deal cheaper than those of a few years ago . Also made in USA . & no mercury & dimmable; but not sure if a special dimmer needs to be used . I did not need it . 40watts just fine & and soft white like an incandescent of same wattage . GREAT VALUE , Due to the bulbs temperature range placing these on my garage side & front entrance auto on lamps . Should not have to replace until I'm too old to do it ( 15 years ) . As these turn on fast ( as opposed to CLF's ) going to get more to replace the clf's in basement work area . Instant on more to an advantage .

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rickster67 Impressive light bulb
I saw these lamps at HD for $5.95ea. and only draws 8.5W. Couldn't pass it up for that price since most of the LED lamps run $10 and up. Surprisingly, the lamp work very well. Used 6 of them for our newly remodeled bathroom that is now 100% LED. All 6 lamps together don't even equal the wattage of one incandescent lamp you would install for a bath vanity. I did install a dimmer to control the lamps. Only draw back is they are a little noisy when ran on a dimmer. The color is a nice rich warm white. Works great with the Tuscany style tile we set in the bath room
