Rated 3 out of 5Â by private very directional light
good color. 3000K - maybe a little less.
seem to be good quality.
-very directional light - great for use in can lights (40w equivalent puts out as much light as a 60w incandescent) because all light comes out the top of the bulb. Not so great for lamps because all the light comes out of the top.
-nice for outdoor use because LEDs don't attract insects.
- wait for them to be on sale - regular price is no bargain. Best sales recently have been through homedepot.com on a "four pack" which is just 4 single packages taped together (at about half regular price).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by hubedo Good lights but not for garage door openers
The lights seem brighter than a 40 watt standard. Definitely too bright and white for a reading lamp (at least for my taste. One note, these controller for the LED appears to be poorly shielded and interfered with my remote controller when I tried to install them in my garage door opener. Took me a while to figure out it was the LED light that was doing it but apparently this is a known issue with cheaper LED lights. Never would have guessed. They work fine in my bathroom fixture though.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MasterC Good value
I used these in can lights, and they are perfect for that since they "point" out toward the tip of the bulb. As for the color, I find that they are not as harsh as "daylight" bulbs but are whiter than "warm" white bulbs. They do work on a dimmer but due to the low wattage of the bulbs, they don't dim down as much as an incandescent and they do not turn amber that you may be accustomed to as you dim them down. Finally, due to the low wattage, they do not turn off all the way when using a Leviton Vizia digital dimmer - as a workaround, I used one incandescent in one can (out of six) and the lights would then turn off all the way. This is not a problem on a regular manual dimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rtc1 Great LED light
This is a great value led. It produces quite a bit of light for a 40w rated light bulb. Most of the light is directed to the top of the light so I use it in ceiling flood light fixtures and torchiere lamps which direct the light up or down. I was amazed when I measured the watts the bulb used with at Kill-a-watt unit: 5.6 watts! Seems to be as bright as a 15 watt CFL it replaced. Slightly warm white light which is fine for me. They make a warmer more yellow light but I like the color temperature just fine. Great light.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by scotth67 Great bulbs at a good price
These LED bulbs work well. I like the color of the light, and they do use less than an incandescent bulb. These LED bulbs are a good choice, and they even work better than the CFL bulbs I used first. I just wish the prices were lower and available in the store.
