Rated 5 out of 5Â by gregt590 Works & looks great, bright white light that is very dimmable
My wife and I really like the daylight color (50K) and energy savings of the new LED lights, so when we had a major renovation done for our home, our contractor recommended these sealed LED lights for the ceiling cans which he found in 50K daylight color. We are installing 20 of them. They look and work great and are very dimmable from pretty dim to bright white light. Price is good for LED lighting which is expected to continue to come down. We can definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Acetechno The best sound investment I have ever made.
I installed 40 of the 6" 5000K Daylight LED Bulbs with new CFL/LED Dimmers for each circuit. These lights have worked flawless now for about a year. Just the lights alone has saved me about $120.00 each month on my electrical bill. I have about another year left until I break even on my Return on Investment. I would recommend these lights to anybody who wants to save money over the long haul.
My buddy was so impressed with my lighting, that he went and bought 85 of these lights for his house. We cleaned out two local Home Depots and also swapped out his Incandescent dimmers for the CFL/LED dimmers by Lutron, as I installed them all for him, including the dimmers. Both he and I have had no problems with any light fixture. None flicker when dimmed, none have burned out, and none have needed to be replaced. He is saving over $200.00 a month on his electrical bill as well.
The next step for me is to swap out the last remaining 4" can bulbs in my house. I'm expecting many more years of trouble free usage out of the Cree brand.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Charles Brighter & more beautiful lighting for one-seventh the wattage
We replaced the bulbs in 14 can lights in one room with these LED lights. We first just replaced some of them, to see how we liked the new LED lights. These LED lights put out a much more beautiful and brighter whiter light than the yellowish light we were getting from our 65 watt lights that were at the other end of the room, so we quickly replaced all 14 & have been very happy with them. For the customer that had to return 3 out of 10 after just a few days, I would guess that you have the old style dimmer that is not designed for LED lights, and that damaged the LED lights. You need to do the quick and easy replacement of the dimmer to one that is designed to be used with dimmable LED lights.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Shane Starting to flicker
I have purchased over 30 of theses and after 2 months I already have to replace over 10 flickering ones. Just recently another 3 started to flicker. There's something wrong with these bulbs, I fear the all will eventually start to flicker.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by wmsears Started to Flicker after 1 week
I replaced 30 recessed lights in my house with 10 of them being EcoSmart 6 in. 9.5-Watt (65W) Daylight LED Down light Light Bulbs. Of the 10 I have returned 3 due to the light "flickering" after being installed for about 1 week. This represents approximately 3-4 hours of use. The other 7 lights seem to work fine. I expected something more when I saw these lights used CREE LEDs. Not sure if it is the LED drivers or LEDs, but either way I am disappointed. I should note that I had no problem exchanging them at HD and the replacements have worked fine so far.
