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.

For the bedroom very comfortable on the eyes.And knowing there should be no replacemt for 25 years is a plus.I will have to hit 88 years old before I have to change them.

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 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PietroS We are happy with these bulbs and happier to be saving energy!
We are using these bulbs in three dimmable lamps. They are somewhat "directional" when compared to incandesent bulbs but this is not a major problem for us when weighed against the extra energy savings. They do not dim past a certain point and at lowest levels they can flicker a bit. We would still recommend trying them out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RBowman High failure rate
Have gone thru two... first one failed the first night it was put into use. Returned back to HD and received a replacement for this "manufacturing defect". This one failed with less than 3 months of use (use defined as 5-6 hours daily).
Will continue to try LED bulbs, just not this brand.
