Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wanderer Solved all my problems
I purchased these bulbs to replace some very expensive compact florecent globe bulbs that did not last as expected. I needed something that looked decent exposed in a bathroom vanity light and a ceiling fan and these look okay. The light is bright, white and better then what I was getting from other bulbs that claimed the same qualities, cost more, and didn't deliver. I am very happy with these bulbs and will buy more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Much better than a compact florescent
Will fit where normal incandescent bulbs did with real energy savings. I have one right above me I like the light but in the winter I do miss the incandescent bulbs heat. I will buy more of these, I will not buy a compact florescent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikeh Excellent for kitchens and bathrooms
I purchased a lot ( about 11 ) of these bulbs to put into both my bathrooms' fixtures above the mirrors and also in the main fixture in my kitchen. Very pleased with the bright, but not too bright 3000K color which is a brighter than standard incandescent at 2700K color, but not extreme like 4000-5000K bulbs. These bulbs are also smaller and not as heavy as some of the other 60 watt LED bulbs I've seen and tried ( except for maybe the new flat 60W LED bulb's from Philips which is lighter in weight ) The only con with this bulb I think is that it is not dimmable, but that's fine for the bathrooms and kitchen where I have no plans to put in dimmer switches.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Evan13 Great, but not for a dimmer
I have at six of these bulbs on normal switches in my house. They are great. But I just bought (and returned) three because I set them up on a dimmer switch and they made loud humming noises. I bought a Lutron dimmer switch that is rated for LEDs, but the bulbs still made noise. I then tried Cree's 60w replacement LED with the metal base and there was no humming. I really like Phillips LED bulbs for their design and build quality and will try them again in the future, but Cree got it right for dimmers.

totally pleased with this bulb. They say it is a 60 watt replacement and I find it is all of that. The color is very white probably best described as daylight. Not 'cool' (bluish). Not 'warm' (yellowish). This white makes it look all the brighter. I have installed one outside on the porch next to a CFL and there is no contest - the LED is whiter and brighter. Cold weather does not seem to effect it at all.
Only warning: The lower half of the bulb is a reflector. It only projects from the base out. If you put it in a table lamp with the base down you will light up the lampshade, and the ceiling but not table below. Best for base up or horizontal installation. Also note that they are not dimable.

The bulb's 3000K (Halogen white) color temperature is perfect for the home. Slightly brighter than a regular incandescent bulb, but not 'glaring' like a 'daylight' bulb. These 3000K bulbs are not routinely stocked at the store level and were ordered with free shipping.

Have bought lights and use them in all my fixtures. Only problem is you have to order on line. Should be in the store.

I bought this type (LED) for the higher efficiency ( vs. CFL) but this bulb also has a nice color to be somewhat whiter than a 60W incandescent. Moreover, this lightbulb delivers on lumens and doesn't give more than moderate heat. Facing downwards from an open ceiling fixture, the output is nicely spread around the room and gradually falls off towards the top base side, as expected. In a shaded lamp facing upwards, it still looks more distributed than you'd might think and the table portion remains well lit enough to read by. One could hardly tell that it's not an incandescent. Excellent bulb and likely to decrease in price now that more competitors are becoming suppliers.
