These LEDs are in two bare bulb ceiling sockets in my basement laundry room. Occasionally the lights get unintentionally left on, but now use 38 watts, instead of 200 watts. The light quality is virtually indistinguishable from the two 100 watt incandescent bulbs these replaced. I hope these LEDs meet and exceed their estimated long life.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiN Bulbs are big, nice light
I purchased these for a ceiling fixture below the kids' playroom, where even heavy-duty incandescent bulbs burn out after only a month or so. I don't like the sickly light of compact fluorescents, so I thought to try these.
They are big - I had to bend the brackets in the fixture to add 1/2" in length for these bulbs to fit, and it is still very tight. That said, although the warm light isn't as nice as incandescent, it doesn't have the hospital feel of fluorescents. There is a noticeable delay when dimming, but they work great. They have already passed the one month mark, so my hopes are high that they'll outlast their predecessors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by riverratz04 pricey, but worth it!
These light bulbs are just what we needed. They are nice and bright and are supposed to last for years. At first I was hesitant to get them because of the price, for light bulbs! But, they are supposed to be very energy efficient and are supposed to last for a very long time. So I thought I'd try them since they were on sale. I'm so glad I got them. They are much brighter than a normal 100w bulb, which was just what we needed. We put one in our bedroom and the other in our kitchen and they made it much easier to see in both rooms. We were amazed at how bright they were and were happy with our purchase. I would have given them 5 stars, but they were pretty expensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HoldenInCO So far, so good
Early in the ownership cycle so it's hard to say if they will last as long as they are supposed to. But, they are bright suckers. Using one in the garage and one as a porch light. Instant on as opposed some fluorescent I've used. The cold doesn't seem to affect them at all. been below zero a few times this winter (already) and they've still been at full brightness at the flick of a switch. Now to see if they'll last to justify their cost. i'd bump to 5 stars but it's too early to know how they will last.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by portezbie Great lightbulbs
I really love LED lightbulbs, and these are very good ones. Indistinguishable from a traditional 100watt bulb, but they use a fraction of the power. The bulbs also feel very sturdy and durable.
One small flaw: they flicker slightly for a second or two when you first turn them on. Hardly an issue though.
These bulbs can still be pretty pricey though but are a great value if you can get them on sale.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brad exactly what I wanted
These bulbs produce a nice, warm color with an intensity probably well short of 100W, maybe 75W. Less directional than other LEDS. The length of the bulb is longer than an incandescent so consider where you are putting it before buying. Current draw is exactly as stated. Expensive even at these lower prices but I'll be happy if I can get a decade out of them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MacDoc Not as bright as I had hoped
I bought two of these to use in overhead hallway fixtures. They were to replace 100 watt incandescent bulbs. I had several issues with the them.
1. They are very expensive.
2. They are not as bright as a true 100 watt incandescent bulb.
3. They are very heavy and this may be an issue with your fixture.
4. They are longer in length than a standard 100 watt bulb and this may be an issue with your fixture..
I am not going to return the bulbs, but for my application, they are a marginal improvement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mstali It works with my touch dimmer
I love this bulb! Who knows if it will last the stated 23 years or not (I probably won't be around) but I do trust the Philips brand. This bulb is solidly built, does not accumulate appreciable heat, is quiet, and is the first LED bulb that I've ever bought that actually works with my bedside touch dimmer pad. All the other ones would flicker or go off. This bulb dims perfectly and is one that I will be buying more of in the future.
