17-Watt (75W) A21 Soft White (2700K) LED Light Bulb is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from End of 75 Watt Incandescents I have been delighted by this light bulb. I've dreaded the idea of switching to more energy efficient lighting because I was concerned the lighting would feel too cold. This fixture gives hope. It's warm in color, it's homey, it seems as bright as a 75 watt bulb, it feels remarkably like an incandescent light. It turns on normally and dims smoothly (I'd guess down to 20% or so), and it's silent. One nice thing I noticed was that if you sit and read next to it, you don't feel the heat that usually emanates from traditional lights. If you want to save energy, but still want the incandescent look, this is an excellent fixture. Here are some considerations. It's a little taller than a typical light bulb, so it may not fit every lamp. It isn't designed for enclosed fixtures, unfortunately. I think it needs a shade to conceal the bulb, however it's good it doesn't look like a regular bulb. It's pricey. I splurged and bought several for my living room, but I can't imagine replacing all the fixtures in a house with these yet. I hope the prices drop because this is a superior option to compact fluorescent on many fronts. Having now seen good LED bulbs, I think incandescent fixtures will begin to seem like 1957 Chevy's. They will always remain nostalgic and beloved, but you can't stop thinking about how wasteful and expensive they must have been to operate. The only reason I give this product 4 stars instead of 5 is price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This light bulb is excellent. The bulb casts a warm white light very similar to a traditional 75 incandescent bulb. The brightness of the bulb, its color rendering and its beam spread are all pretty much identical to a traditional bulb. This bulb works great in a shaded lamp. The bulb has a very slight delay of maybe half a second before coming on to full brightness. The bulb has a very slight humming sound that is only noticeable if your ear is next to it. I have not yet tried the bulb on a dimmer, but according to the packaging, it is fully dimmable. Power usage according to my KILL A WATT meter is about 17 watts, which is the same as advertised. The bulb looks to be very well made. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright light with almost no heat; sturdy bulb I am using this LED bulb in my trouble lamp, and it affords several adtantages besides its low use of power. It is a sturdy bulb with no fragile filament to break. It generates almost no heat, so I don't burn myself when my trouble lamp brushes against my skin. Finally, it produces a very bright light that illuminates my work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Power LED I've been waiting for a high power LED light bulb for some time. As far as I can tell right now, this is the highest power consumer A21 LED light bulb in the US. There's a 60W A19 version of this bulb which appears to have a shorter heatsink. This bulb comes in a hard shell blister pack. There's no instructions save what's on the box. It's dimmable. It turns on almost instantly reaching full brightness with what appears to be under half a second. It does hum if you put your ear within six inches. It's imperceptible beyond that distance. After a few minutes, the bulb is hot to the touch. It's hot like a CFL especially at the metal base heatsink. The three domes are yellow, but when you turn it on, it glows warm yellow white (2700K) The main selling point to me is the brightness (1100 lumens at 17W). My Belkin power meter seems to back up that wattage at 17-20W. It claims 70W equivalent incandescent performance and I believe it. I used this to replace a 27W CFL and this bulb is just shy of the brightness that bulb puts out. The three yellow domes make this bulb stand out visually. If you place the bulb in an enclosure that is transparent, you will see the three dome seams. If that bothers you, you should place it in frosted glass or cover it so you don't see the spacing between the domes. The shape is bulb like. It disperses light just like a regular bulb. Though the center-top of the bulb doesn't emit as much light. In a top-down setting, your bulb should be recessed in a metal enclosure to get reflectivity in the downward position or use a flood LED lamp instead. I recommend this bulb to early adopters of technology and green minded people. Since this bulb lasts a long time, it's also good for bulb replacements that are hard to reach. Pluses: This bulb delivers on the brightness without any of the downsides of CFL. There's no toxic mercury, hardly any start up lag to full brightness, dimmable, pleasing color temperature for homes, quiet, not too hot, lower power at 17W and reportedly lasts 25 years. Minuses: The price is $39.97 at this time of writing. The odd looking heatsink and shape of the three domes. It doesn't emit as much light at the top of the bulb. Get the 17W bulb as the 12.5W bulb is the same price on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricy but awesome I used 3 of these to replace 3 100w bulbs in a living room fixture. The old bulbs had a noticable hum, due to the fact there was a dimmer involved. No noticable hum with these and other than the fact the new bulbs seem more yelow and the old bulbs more blue the light output is similar to the naked eye. 3 x 17watts is a lot better than 3 x 100watts. One other thing is these bulbs are a bit bigger (length wise) than the old style bulbs so make sure they will fit in your fixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phillips got it right! I love these bulbs. They come on almost instantly (about 1/2 second warm up) with a pleasing white light that is as bright as a standard 75 watt bulb. They are quite expensive so I'm only using them in areas where I need instant on lights. Here's a suggestion: If you have fixtures with multiple lights, just replace one bulb with the Phillips LED. You will notice an immediate difference & you can replace the others as your budget allows. Don't be put off by the odd appearance of this bulb. Once it is on it looks like any other bulb. I have not tried this bulb in a dimming circuit, but Phillips claims it is dimmable. Consumer Reports rated this bulb a 99 out of a possible 100 & I have to agree with that rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed I received this bulb yesterday and put it in my bedside lamp. It is really impressive. The light looks absolutely identical to that of a warm-white bulb. If I hadn’t put the bulb in myself, I would never have known the difference. It does take a fraction of a second longer than an incandescent to come on, but the delay is trivial and it comes on at full brightness. The surface of the bulb has a yellow appearance when off but when the bulb is on, it gives off perfectly normal warm-white light. I love the fact that it uses only 17 watts and contains no mercury. Some other reviewers have commented that they hear a slight hum when the bulb comes on, but I haven’t heard any at all. OK, it’s a bit pricey right now, but I’m still very happy with it and am probably going to order a couple more. A real winner in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light, but with some startup noise I just purchased one of these bulbs. The light from the bulb is great, with the right shade on the light, there is no way to tell that this is an LED bulb from any distance. My previous LED bulbs have all been way too blue. However, when you're up close to this bulb, for the first 15-30 minutes of operation, the bulb hums noticeably. Since I'm using this on a nightstand, I'm usually in a quiet place, and the lamp is within 2 feet of my ear, so I can hear it for the first 15 minutes or so. If Philips use this technology for indoor flood lights, I'll be buying a bunch of them!
