Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AtlantaShopper BEST LED bulb for the Price
Was looking for an energy efficient and good light source to replace existing can lights throughout home that were putting off heat and inconsistent light. Bought a box of 3 at local store and liked the results. Ended up going back and buying 12 more boxes to replace all can lights throughout home for a consistent look and reliable light source. The bulb appears a bit longer and wider than the ones we replaced - but this worked in our favor as it now provides a nice flush appearance to the can with little gap around the bulb. Now looking for a daylight (instead of soft white) for bathroom and laundry as the brightness level for a 65W is exceptional.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Color True to Incandescent
Was looking for a bulb that most resembled existing BR30 65W incandescent bulbs. After trying all other brands, literally, from Home Depot, Lowe's and Costco, this is the bulb that exactly cast the same hue as my existing BR30 65W incandescent bulbs, we cannot tell them apart, whether looking at the light source directly or the color in the room or on the walls. The only slight difference is that this bulb is a little more intense than the BR30 65W incandescent but the hue is identical (does not cast a red, green, white or grey hue like others). The only question that remains to be seen is if the plastic shell will color or fade over time and will it change the hue or intensity. If only the intensity changes then it may perfectly match my existing incandescent bulbs in every way. If the hue changes over time then I may be disappointed and would not rate it as highly. I replaced all my basement lights with this bulb a few months ago and have been pleased to the extent that I just replaced all the remaining bulbs in the house with them.

These are BR30 flood lamps. They fit in a standard 6 inch can.
We bought 12 to replace our kitchen cfls.
They are instant on, which I like. The cfls take time to warm up - these LED dont. They are cool to the touch. They are a bit brighter than the same 65w cfls they replaced at the same 2700K brightness.
We received one that did not work out of the box. Took it to Home Depot and they swapped it for me on the spot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Too big for a BR30
I bought these to replace the standard BR30 bulbs in out can lights throughout the house. When we attempted to put them in we found out they are about a 1/2 inch in diameter too big for the cans. So to say these are BR30's are a little deceiving. They are built very well but I couldnt use them and had to return them for another brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne Need correct dimmer switch
Some dimmers aren't rated for LEDs. It says on dimmer box if it is rated for a LED. It either can or can't go all the way down to zero volts. Can't remember. I'm going to give these bulbs a shot because 2 out of 4 Cree bulbs have blown in first month. And they were not on a dimmer

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonW Best LED that I've found to match 65W incandescent
I found this EcoSmart 65W equivalent, 2700K, 650 lumen LED after about 3 other LED tries. I totally agree with one other review here that found these bulbs to best match 65W incandescent can floods. Others were too intense, but this 2700K option is just right for my indoor kitchen can lights. The instant-on lighting beats the CFL's I have in other sockets. Still pricey and I don't know if they (or I) will last the 20-25 years they need to make up the full savings. I am using them where I need the instant light and I am mixing them with other CFL's to save on the full price of changing out to LED's. Seems to work fine.

The lights are very attractive and work wonderfully. I am very pleased with them. However, I have since seem them for a slightly lower price as other stores.
