Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maxair Knocks out FM and 2 meter radio reception
These particular bulbs radiate much more radio interference than CFL bulbs. Couldn't listen to my favorite FM station in the same room with my light fixture on when these were installed. My friend couldn't use his 2 meter amateur radio with these in his house. (That explains another review about not using them in a radio remote garage door opener.) If the none of the above is a concern, then these are great bulbs, nice color temperature at 3000k, instant on and being dimmable is a big plus over CFL's. I would give them 5 out of 5 stars if not for the radio interference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCitizen Excellent bathroom fixture substitute!!!
Although the lumens on this "bulb" are rated less than the old lightbulb it is replacing, I can't tell the difference in lumenosity mysefl. I think this is because of the very intense white color of the LEDs. This is an excellent replacement - especially since the bulbs in my light rack add up to 240 WATTS!!! With four of these, it doesn't even add up to the same energy waste as ONE of the old light bulbs!! Save yourself some shipping and buy as many as you need. I would have ordered four if I had known how well these worked!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brightbulb Great bulbs!!!
I shopped for the perfect bulb, for months. I initially thought this bulb might be too yellow/orange for my tastes, but gave it a try. They are the perfect color, and brightness for my 4" recessed cans.....and the price is the lowest I found for a quality LED bulb. I will add to this review in 46 years, when I see if the claimed life of the bulbs is correct. I don't know if I would wait that long to get them though......I will be about 110 years old then, and I may forget to add to the review!!

The illumination provided by these l.e.d. bulbs is quite good. We've used them to replace many CFL's throughout the house with great success. The sole and only drawback is cost. At about an Alexander Hamilton for each they are not cheap but with the reduction of energy consumption and absence of heat output they should offset the cost in about 41 months. If we can really get the life expectancy of 38 years then I plan to have these buried with me when I pass on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrhall We have been using these ever a year and are very happy.
I had been trying all kinds of "energy efficient" bulbs. They all had major drawbacks. The color of these bulbs is very nice. The light is very bright. They come on strong enough and do not flicker. We have them in the fixtures over the sink, the kitchen table, the hall/staircase lights. The ones we put in about 17 months ago are still going strong. The price is much lower than when we purchased the first bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ECPM The Last Bulb You'll Ever Have to Buy...
These 8.6 watt bulbs produce a much brighter light than what one expects of a 40 watt equivalent. I would not recommend them for a lamp (there is a dark area around the base of the bulb thus directing the light upward) but for every other fixture they are great! I'm replacing all my 19w CFL floods in my can lights with these and they produce just as much light if not more...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phil fine bulbs for most applications
The bulbs are bright at the top, but the base/ behind doesn't get as much light output.
Installed in a vanity fixture pointing out and they seem brighter than the 40w rating.
And they are quite white, which is fine as long as they are with other white lights. "warm white" bulbs make them look very white.
Overall, good value if they last as long as advertised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buffs1026 Great so far
The bulbs seem well made and sturdy. The light is good, though I am not a light snob so who knows. If these bulbs last as long as they are supposed to, these will be the best purchase I ever made. I love the drastically reduced power usage. I haven't tried them with a dimmer. I would recommend these bulbs to anyone... they just make sense.
