in your specifications you list these lights as indoor/outdoor, however, in your product overview you do not state that these lights are to be used outdoors. I would like clarification on whether I can use these outdoors or not in my recessed fixtures.

Answer: 
This particular bulb may be used Indoor or Outdoor as it is designed for recessed fixtures. I see no reason why it can't be used in either of the applications you've described. However I'd be cautious if placing it in direct contact with moisture.

Answer: 
If you are talking about this bulb,Model # LED12DR303RVLES, you are right as the overview does not say what the application is. The specifications does say indoor/outdoor use. I checked the GE web site and I think the ambiguity results from their specification. It shows this bulb as listed for damp locations

(LED12DR303RVLES 120 3 5.37 650 2700 9065W 25,000 Yes Damp Frosted, White body) In the foot note portion of their specification they list the following:
(Location, damp – Exterior or interior location that is normally or periodically subject to condensation of moisture in, on, or adjacent to, electrical equipment, and includes partially protected locations.)
So it sound as though you could use these outdoors in a protected location such as your recessed fixtures. Read Less

Answer: 
I used one under a porch that is very protected, i.e. no water is ever going to get into that fixture. I feel comfortable using one in that scenario, but if it was not well protected I would not use it outdoors.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't last a year I replaced my incandescent bulbs with LED over the past year. I bought 7 of these GE bulbs and in the past few months I've had to replace 4 of them. They flicker on and off. Of course I went with a different brand since 4 of 7 GE bulbs have stopped working properly, I'm sure more will quit soon too. We'll see how the cree do. It's horrible to pay such an outrageous price with the hopes of not having to replace again for 20 years, and then to have to just throw them out in less than a year. July 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bright and dimmable. I installed two of these bulbs. One in a dining room fixture that shines up. Really like that it is dimmable so that I can adjust the lighting to change the ambiance of the room. The other one I installed in recessed lighting fixture in my kitchen. The LED is definitely brighter than the other bulbs I had installed. Both of the bulbs are working great. December 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for any indoor recessed lighting application! When I first installed this light bulb I couldn't really see much of a difference but upon closer examination I realized not only does this bulb run much cooler than a standard 65W equivalent, but it is also a bit brighter. The energy savings speak for themselves with an 85% reduction in energy use coupled with the incredibly long life that LED technology provides this bulb is WELL worth the investment! After trying 1 bulb out, I've since gone ahead and replaced all 5 recessed lights in my kitchen. Changing these lights with my high ceilings is no picnic either so the incredibly long life will be very much appreciated. June 19, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Does not fully dim This is a great LED bulb, and it is dimmable, however, it does not dim completely out, or to a very low setting. If you want to replace a series of bulbs as they burn out, you can't use these. The light is nice and matches well with the incandescents we have in our recessed lights, but it is slightly brighter, and noticeably so when you start dimming them. It does not dim as much or at the same rate as the incandescent bulbs and therefor will be very obvious it's a different bulb. They only dim about 50% and won't dim low enough for many uses. If you want to replace all your bulbs with these, they will be great except that you still won't have the control to dim the lights completely. September 7, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not ready for primetime I have these installed on a circuit with a Lutron LED dimmer switch. These bulbs dim great, that is not the problem, the problem is they noticeably buzz at every dim level. One of the bulbs died after two months. They might work better and last longer on a non-dimmed circuit. LED technology still has a long way to go. They cost $10 for a 2 pack which was the only good thing, but now you know why they were on sale. May 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bulb, very bright! I'm converting my lights over to LED and this GE bulb was a great replacement for an old 65W incandescent bulb in a recessed can over my kitchen island. It has a standard base so it screwed right in to the socket and looks just like the bulb I replaced. I hit the switch and it came right on, no delays like I had with some older LED bulbs and no warm up time like CFLs. The light is really bright and warm, and it only uses 12 watts, which if my math is right is less than 1/5th of the energy of my old bulb. March 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brighter Appearance I replaced the existing incandescent bulb with this dimmable LED bulb because the location is difficult to get to. The advertised life time is 22 years running at 3 hours per day so I thought I would never have to replace it again. While the old bulb was easy to unscrew from the socket, the new LED bulb was very tight screwing it into the socket. Since the bulb is made from plastic, I was reluctant to put too much force on the bulb. After climbing down from the ladder and turning the switch on I was surprised that the bulb did not work. I removed the bulb and tried it in a lamp fixture and it worked. I reinstalled the bulb in the ceiling fixture. This time I used quite a bit of force and screwed the bulb in until I couldn't turn it any further. Success the bulb now worked. As can be seen in the photo the new bulb is brighter, covers a larger area, is the same color as the old bulb, and uses 1/6 the amount of electricity. May 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by White light This lamp was not as bright as I had hoped. As you can see in the photos it does make a white light which increases light output, as compared to a standard lamp. In both sets of photos you can see the difference. March 12, 2015
