I never thought I would have bright light again in this old ceiling fan using narrow base bulbs. CFL bulbs took forever to warm up and still did not put out very much light. I was very impressed that these new bulbs are instant on and very bright from the first moment I turned on the switch. I tried to get picture to show dim cfl compared to bright new LED bulbs/ These new LED bulbs also are dim-able. The expected life span is far far longer than the old filament bulbs and appears brighter. I am so glad prices have now made them very cost effective.

This bulb only uses 4W but is quite bright (25W). I replaced my 25W and it puts out pretty much the same light. I have put it in my porch lamp which I leave on all night. Should last for several years. I love that I will be saving on my energy bill! It comes on instantly and is also dimmable if you have a dimmable switch.

What this bulb lacks in style, it makes up for in savings. I use mine in my porch light that I leave on all night. I found that the soft white creates a comparable color hue as an incandescent soft white bulb. Maybe a little more on the orange side, like a security light you see in the country. I also tried it in my entry light with 2 other incandescent candelabras and the color looked similar enough that I didn't notice a difference. I also didn't see any jitteriness that I see with LED Christmas lights. The only thing I don't like is that almost half the bulb is a plastic base. If you are thinking of using these in fixtures where the bulb is visible, this design feature kind of detracts from the esthetics of the light fixture. I don't exactly like how they look in my porch light, since it's a carriage light, but since I don't spend much time outside and no one can tell from the road, I can live with that.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EightOfEight looks weird next to the older style bulbs
My dining room light has 5 shades. These newfangled bulbs are slightly larger than the older style of incandescent bulb, and that bugs me because my light is styled in such a way that the tips of the bulbs are visible from the bottom. Until the other 4 bulbs burn out, I am stuck with being able to see how this bulb doesn't match the others. Plus, since the part of the light near the stem is solid/opaque, no light comes out of that part of the bulb; whereas with the old style bulb, the light shone out of every direction. It looks odd to have 4 of the light shades completely lit up but the light shade over this new bulb is lit only on the bottom half.
If you are the type of person who doesn't notice that a picture frame is hanging slightly crooked, then you won't be bothered by the difference. But for me, I will have to replace the other 4 bulbs now or it will drive me batty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaGator Works in a variety of applications, but I used it for a Hunter Fan light kit.
I used this bulb for a Hunter fan lighting kit. It works, but is only a 25W equivalent. I will need to find a 60W equivalent in order to compare to the incandescent bulbs that came with the fan. I would not go out of my way to install these everywhere in all possible applications, unless they have a 60W equivalent. Since I personally only have one possible application, I went for it to try it out.
I cannot comment on how well it dims since I do not have a dimmer on the light kit, but I imagine it will work just fine, as most LEDs work well with dimmers.

This light bulb is really well made and is also dimmable. Solid and durable. It is perfect for my hallway and I have tried to take a couple of pictures for you so you can see that the light does spread out. I am really liking the LED lightbulbs. They last so long and really cut down on your electric bill. This is the 'soft light' and is wonderful for me because I leave this light on all night. Recommend highly.

I used the new EcoSmart LED bulb in decorative lamp I have had for the past 15 years. I was suprised to find the light was just as warm and didn't upset the look for feel of the area it serves. My lamp stays on 24/7 and previously older bulbs were burning out every six to eight weeks. This new LED bulb has been on 24/7 since the day I bought it eight weeks ago. Still working strong.
