90W Equivalent Bright White (3000K) PAR38 47 Degrees Flood Dimmable LED Light Bulb is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electronic modified early 2015 Consumer Reports indicated after talking to CREE that the electronics were modified in 2015 after high failure rates were noted. "They state The date code is on the bottom right of the bulb. Bulbs made in 2015 have a code of 0115 or higher (the first two numbers indicate the week, the next two the year)" I purchased 2315 lot bulbs. The 1,500 lumens is fantastic compared to more typical 1,000 for other 95 to 120 watt replacements. Lot's of light, no warm up time, and dimming make this bulb a winner for me. Price is down to a more reasonable $18 too. Hopefully the modified electronics will deal with the frequent on and off cycling that was killing earlier bulbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 50% failure rate in one day I bought four of these Saturday. I installed two that day. They looked fabulous. Great light, pleasing tone. I was very satisfied. Then Sunday I saw that one of the two was out. As I looked, the other began flickering, and also went out. I installed the other two bulbs Sunday, and as of this morning, five days later, those two are still working. I really want to like these, but death in one day on 50% of the bulbs I bought is pretty alarming. The package says 22 years. There is a 10-year warranty. If you buy these, definitely hang onto your receipt and packaging in case you need to make a claim.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 3 months Our $25.00/20 year bulb lasted 3 months. The warranty on this product is as worthless as the bulb. You have to save the UPC from the box and ship the defective bulb at your own expense back to CREE. Good luck with that!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bulb failed after 3 months The bulb began flickering after 3 months. What's the point of buying a $25.00 energy-saving bulb, that is marketed with a 20-year life expectancy, if the bulb has to be replaced every year? I was also disappointed to learn the Home Depot requires it's customers to take up warranty issues directly with Cree. Luckily, I was within the 90 day refund window. Sounds like the real warranty is 90 days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Light - Burn out Fast I would never recommend this light bulb!!! I bought 10 of these to put into our new home, 3 days in and 2 in our kitchen went out, next day 2 more upstairs have gone out. So I went and bought more from a different store hoping this batch was just bad. Well they at least lasted for 1 month before 2 more have now gone bad. The lighting is great when they work - but just not worth the head ache knowing I've now wasted over $100 on bad lights. If I want to claim a warranty I have to pay even more to get them shipped. How am I supposed to "save money" from the efficiency of an LED when I'm always spending money on new bulbs or sending them in. I would advise everyone to stay away from this product... and if you really want to try them send me the money and I'll just send you a dead bulb - the same result you see after buying these lights. It's a shame I can't just return these to home depot for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead after 2 month It worked well for the first two months, then stopped working all of a sudden. I tried to get it exchange from the homedepot store I bought it from, but they said no because I didn't have the original receipt. This is the first time I had a bad experience with a LED light. Don't let your guard down because this is an LED, keep your receipts in a safe place. $25 is no small change for a light bulb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to convert from E-11 halogen incandescent to E-26 LED - Great Result! 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright, wide flood; doesn't dim fully This is one of the only really bright "90W equivalent" LED PAR38s out there: 1500 lumens, which makes this a good replacement candidate. I've been trying to replace true 90W Philips PAR38 "28" (degree) 1300+ lumen floods but hadn't found LEDs that go much above 1000 lumens, so this is the best option so far for good illumination. Note that "Spot" and "Flood" are not standardized. Many old spot PAR38s are 10-12 degrees, and floods can range from 25-40 degrees. But CREE's "spot" is 27 degrees and "flood" is 47. On the plus side, the price is getting reasonable (given utility bill savings), the glass lens with dimples and hex ring look exactly like the old Philips bulbs, the bulbs are bright and cast a wide flood. On the minus side, the 82 CRI is OK, but skin colors are less saturated and reds are generally weak. I would have liked better color balance, but there's almost no other bulbs out there that are bright and have better CRI. Like other CREE bulbs, at the lowest dimmer setting they are far brighter (and whiter) than halogens, so it might not work well for lighting situations like watching a movie on the TV. I think this will work better in kitchens and home offices than in the living room. I had one of the CREE A19 (standard) LED 60 W equivalent bulbs stop working after about 12 months. I had a receipt and Home Depot replaced it. Click on the photos to see the differences between a Philips 90W 28 Halogen Flood and CREE 90W 47 LED Flood. At full power the CREE looks brighter but is slightly dimmer directly below than the halogen bulb. At the lowest dimmer setting, the CREE is whiter but not not nearly as dim. (The photo is auto-exposed, but the room is really dark except for the LED bulb.)
