Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveinPennsylvania Fantastic Light great for ceiling fans
I have a 15 x 15 size bedroom and replaced the 15 year old ceiling fan/light fixture with a new 52 inch ceiling fan that had three light fixtures. The new fan came with 3 13watt CFL bulbs and produced way too much light for the room. It looked like I was in full sunlight it was so bright. My old ceiling fan light used one 60 watt bulb which was about 300-400 lumens more than the room really needed to be to my liking. The new Ceiling fan light bulbs using all 3 of the 13 watt CFLs made the room easily in excess of 1000 lumens above what I wanted for the room. What to do--what to do. ??
My solution was to install 3 of these Philips LED 3-Watt A15 light bulbs in the new ceiling fan light fixtures. The light produced is perfect for the 15 x 15 bedroom giving out about as much light as a regular old fashioned 40 watt bulb. But the light from the Philips LED 3-Watt A15 light bulbs is cleaner and crisp and to me is superior. I estimate the 3 bulbs give me about 400 lumens of light and that was all I really wanted for the room. The best thing is the bulbs use only 9 watts of power when on and last up to 18 years. I really like not having to replace these bulbs often as I did when I had an old fashioned 60 watt bulb.I left the light on about 8 hours per day with the old 60 watt bulb and was replacing it every 5 weeks or so. That was extremely annoying and time consuming as the light was inside a hard to access globe fixture. These LED lights will go for years and years before needing replaced even if you have it on 16 hours per day. Plus saving 51 watts of power to light my room is a definite benefit also. The light is incredible and makes the room really look great.
In the climate I live in the mountains of central Pennsylvania you only need to run the ceiling fan blades one month a year tops and the rest of the year they remain still. So for me the light from the fan was the top priority and these bulbs come highly recommended by me.
Yes these bulbs are expensive,but trust me when I say in this case you will get what you pay for and after about 2 years they will have paid for themselves and started to actually save you money.I figure that at 8 hours a day that I have these LED bulbs on they will last me at least 7 years (I take vacations away from home). In 7 years time I would have bought about 73 old fashioned 60 watt bulbs at around $1.35 each plus spent what it cost to use 60 watts of power versus 9 watts. In other words I reduced my power consumption to light that room by 85%.That is right--I am using only 15% of the power I previously used to light this bedroom and the light is more to my liking. Isn't it time you try LED for your ceiling fan?

Used six of these for our master bath vanity fixtures. The light is warm white which we prefer. Plenty of light but not overpowering. My wife loves the fact that there is no heat output while she gets ready. I love the fact that I'm using 18 watts of power as opposed to 240 using 40 watt bulbs. Can't tell you how long these will last. But I will definitely hang on to my receipts and proof of purchase

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sd12345 Good for chandeliers
A small bulb with the standard Edison base. Low lumen output makes this best used with multiple bulb set ups (chandeliers)
I don't see any heat sink but perhaps the led doesn't generate that much heat. Only time will tell if they are worth the cost. I have kept the receipt and proof of purchase in case they fail prematurely.
My 6 bulbs use about 18W --compare that to incandescent a that would use more than that per bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SDHMD Excellent quality light output, excellent price
These fit into a regular bulb base, but are a smaller overall height and diameter than regular incandescent bulbs. The 2700K light quality is excellent and these fit in narrow fixtures that would otherwise not accept a larger diameter bulb.
I have used these in outside fixtures where the bulb is sheltered properly from the elements, and the amount of light produced is perfect for taking the edge off pure darkness. These are not dimmable, but there are many circumstances where I don't need to dim a bulb, and that saves on the cost of the bulb also.
Overall, top flight LED bulb at a very reasonable price, and with excellent quality of light output.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Northlake Nice, soft-light, LED bulb
We needed a very soft light in some of our fixtures and wanted LEDs for their extra-long life. We tried these bulbs (15-watt equivalent) and are very pleased with the amount of light they produce. No way for us to evaluate how long they last--it's too early to tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bcg30506 Very nice light
Love this bulb! The LED has quick natural performing light and uses almost no power and produces very little if any heat. Time will tell on the lasting power, but so far, I'm happy.

Was worried the light might be harsh but it is great! Couldn't tell the difference from other bulbs.

Product works as expected. Time will tell if the life of the bulb is as advertised.
