Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mani2020 Bulbs stopped working after 3 months
I bought a 3-pack home depot online and 2 of the bulbs stopped working only after about 3 months. Trying to get a warranty replacement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by toolman Money saving flood lights
We had a different application than most; we replaced 500 watt mogul base high bay lights at our church using an adapter. The old bulbs were very expensive to operate and our pastor wanted to find something more efficient. We first bought 2 of the LED floods, and were quite happy with their output and color. We have since replaced all 14 and could not be happier. Now all 14 Cree bulbs use less electricity than 2 of the old high bay lights. That's a real savings!

We replaced (12) 75 watt 30 degree flood Halogens with the 90 watt equiv. 47 degree flood LED's. Eight of the lights were on the same dimmer for a total of 600 watts. The same eight lights now only consume 148 watts of electricity. The bulbs dim well there was no need to get bulb extenders or anything else to install in recessed fixtures. They will flicker once in a while when a heavy load appliance starts but this only lasts a second or two.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TexasSPQ highest lumens I've found in a quality LED floodlight
I have been waiting, waiting, waiting, for the color quality of LED floodlights and the price to get better before I installed them inside. Finally took the plunge with these as I am tired of having dark places in the house. Cree is a US company, and it is a pleasure to find a quality product for sale that is made in the USA. Overall, Cree LEDs have the best light quality, and these have great brightness. I am a little disappointed that these only have a CRI of 80, whereas Cree makes other bulbs that are a 93. (CRI is supposed to be on the package, but I couldn't find it. Finally found it on this website.) When installing these in your home, you want the best CRI possible, so I am waiting a while before I purchase more, in the hopes that aspect will improve. (Yes, I am picky about color accuracy.)
These will dim to around 40-50% power on my old Lutron Skylark incandescent dimmer, so I may just stick with that dimmer, and not pay to replace it.
Looking forward to more choices and upgrades from Cree.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Quality control issues for use outdoors
I bought 12 of these bulbs online. Used 6 for can lights in my kitchen. They are very bright and seem to be an improvement over the halogens they replaced, not to mention the major power savings. I also installed six more outside to provide lighting reflections on my house. I found two of the six were defective after our first large rain. Water intrusion into the bulb caused them to short out. I returned them to home depot for a refund. Good bulbs for indoors and once they fix their quality problem with water intrusion, also for outdoors.

Wonderful!!!!! But pricey. These LED bulbs are so bright! After last year's kitchen remodel, I immediately noticed the electric bill increase because of the 5 new recessed light fixtures. The remodelers used five 75 watt incandesant bults. No wonder!!
These bulbs offer more light (90 watt equivalent) for only 18 watts. That's way better than the awful 75 watt incandesant bulbs I had previously. The light is clean and white. I'm looking forward to seeing a redction in my electric bill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flankspeed Great Product for areas that need more light than 65w equivalent
This is a duplicate review that I posted on the single bulb product page. I am posting here since I purchased as a 3 pack.
I have a large room full of recessed fixtures that use an E-11 base 150W halogen lights. I bought some adaptors and was able to convert the whole room over. I went from 150W to 18W with no noticeable difference in light output. I think this is because the LED concentrates the light whereas the LED bulb was higher up in the fixture. They look exactly like any other Halogen PAR 38 bulb but are cooler to the touch and do not throw off much heat. They are about 60% less weight than other LED bulbs because they do not have a bulky metal heat sync. Great CREE product that is domestically made. My payback will be less than 1.5 years.
