TW Series 40W Equivalent Soft White A19 Dimmable LED Light Bulb (6-Pack) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent looks like incandesent bulb Looks exactly like an incandescent bulb, has no mercury like a CFL bulb, and actually made in the USA! They produce more than light than a 40 watt bulb which is fine. NOTE: If you buy Cree's cheaper bulb for around $55 they produce a blue industrial light.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buzz when dimmed and a tad yellow So basically I think this is a great bulb if you don't need to dim them. But, if you do need to dim them, they buzz. I have had this problem on both regular and LED/CFL dimmers with several different bulbs. I also purchased the GE Reveal LEDs, and they have not had the buzzing issue at all and they also have a less yellowish hue. After using both, with the price being almost identical, I can't for the life of me figure a reason to buy these instead of the GEs. You will much happier with them. No buzzing, less yellow-y. The CRI is listed as being higher, but I think they look and perform worse and they take more wattage, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High failure rate I like these bulbs very much except that they fail at a very high rate. I use them in enclosed ceiling fixtures, which Cree says is okay so long as they are not mixed in the fixture with other types of bulbs, which they're not. What typically happens is that after a few months a bulb will start to cut in and out, and eventually it will stop working altogether. Although I have not kept track well enough to know the exact failure rate, it is certainly north of 50% and may be close to 100%. I just keep returning the dead ones and replacing them with new ones. Frustrating for bulbs that are supposed to last 10 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Bought and paid the premium for the TW bulbs (6). 2 have failed within months, not years. Returned to Cree at my expense. Cree didn't even send a TW replacement, but the cheaper 60w bulb. Hoping to have better luck with Philips. Update: Cree would not post my review above.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 100% failure Every one of the TW Series bulbs I have purchased has failed. Each one has died the same way - it starts to flicker, and eventually dies. Could be thermal expansion causing internal connections to break. Interestingly: none of the regular (non-TW) series bulbs have had this behavior/problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb performance when used with the right dimmer I've had 9 of the 40w TW soft white bulbs in a living room fixture for the past two months and they look great. Initially, I was hearing a buzzing noise from the bulbs after installing a dimmer that said it was compatible with LED bulbs on the packaging as well as being on the approved dimmer list from Cree. I returned that dimmer and replaced it with the ELV type (trailing edge phase cut) of dimmer. Now the bulbs are perfectly silent as expected with even better dimming range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit disappointing These bulbs emit a faint buzzing noise when dimmed. At full brightness they're silent. The color quality is improved but not perfect. Reds still look dull compared to incandescent bulbs. Are they are OK for a dining room? Just barely is my conclusion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic color rendering Most people do not pay attention to CRI, and most companies consider a CRI of 80 to be acceptable. If you install these light bulbs and compare to the CRI-80 alternatives, you will see a whole new world of color bursting out before your eyes. In my opinion, the higher price and slightly lower efficiency (lumens/watt) are worth to finally achieve a colorful rendering of things around me at night.
