Rated 5 out of 5Â by Barry Nice light bulb
These seem expensive when you buy them but they are supposed to last for 22 years and use less electricity so they are worth it. I'm slowing converting to all LED light bulbs but I have to wait for my CFL bulbs to all wear out. It looks well made and the light is pretty good. I like a fairly white light and this one is somewhere between the bright white and the more orange ones. Good compromise.

The color and light output were excellent. I will admit it was on more than three hours a day, but still, an incandescent would have lasted this long and paid for its electricity by being so much less expensive up front. Disappointed and buying a name brand next, to day the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 Instant-On...for real.
Just bought one of these today, because it stated 'Instant-On and Dimmable' on the packaging. And lo and behold, it actually DOES come on instantly.
I've bought lots of LED bulbs, and have yet to find one without the lag-time when turning it on. Even the ones that advertise it. This one does the trick.
Looking forward to when they decide to release a 4-pack of these. I've got a lot of bulbs I need to replace.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jwl80303 bigger than standard BR30, won't fit into my light fixtures
The bulb will not fit into my recessed lighting fixtures (i.e. in my kitchen ceiling, the kind that rotate and pivot up/down so that you can aim the light just so at a countertop or other work area). The problem is that the bulb is about 4" in diameter at the front. BR30 bulbs are supposed to be no bigger than 3.75" diameter (in fact the '30' means 30 * 1/8" == 3.75" diameter). So the bulbs won't fit into my fixtures. I do have a different type of fixture in my house that would accept the bulb, so I got to turn it on and can see that the bulb produces excellent bright light, and is at full brightness the instant it is turned on (unlike CFLs that take forever to arrive at full brightness).
So it's a fine bulb for the money, but if the fixture you're going to put it in doesn't have plenty of wiggle room, measure it first to ensure this oversized "BR30" bulb will fit.

Bought six of these to replace incandescent BR30 floods. They are instant on, the dimming feature works fine, and as an added bonus, when installed in the cans, they look like regular bulbs. Too many LEDs look funky (silver rings, orange housings, etc.) but these look like incandescents. Only downside is that they are still pricey - it would be nice if HD offered them in a bulk pack like they did with a previous model. Still, highly recommended.
