Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RDL1 Great Bulb...Dims Wonderfully
I took a gamble on a case of these bulbs as I have a dimmer in a theater room that would not work with CFL's. When I saw that Philips had finally come out with this bulb I jumped at the chance even though they are currently about $25/bulb.
From the first minute I turned the bulbs on, I knew I made the right decision. In fact, they worked so well I went out and bought two more dimmers and installed them the same night just so we could enjoy the energy savings.
The final cost will be insignificant on this installation as the bulb will probably last 20 years. I estimate an annual savings of about $20 in this room so the payback is less than two years. That is the kind of investment we can all make...and it lowers the burden on the grid!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gsr4jimmi Perfect for our remodeled home, very bright and modern look!
We have 99% LED bulbs in our house, only lights we can't replace are the stupid Hampton Bay ceiling fan lights which are controlled by remotes and must use incandescent (unless someone knows of a trick?). We tried to replace with LED candelabra size, but they just flicker, so we're not at 100% LED! We love these lights in the kitchen, hallway, and bathroom. We use the 3000K in the other rooms as 5000K would be too bright. Our electric bill is so low since the remodel, almost 50% less, but that is also due to the all new appliances too. There are no downside to getting LEDs, it used to be expensive, but they'll pay for themselves, lasting 20+ years! I have mostly these Philips, but some Cree 5000K as well, in general they're all comparable. And guess what? You don't have to buy the special LED dimmers like most people will tell you, which cost twice as much, I installed some of them with regular dimmers and they work even better than the expensive counter-part with no or minimal humming sounds.

These bulbs produce a bright, sun-like light that is exactly what I wanted. I've installed them in adapters for the weird two prong GU24 bulbs used by some new lamps. These bulbs' low wattage is within the limits set by the sockets but produce more and better light than the bulbs supplied with the lamps. I'm unable to evaluate how well these bulbs work with a dimmer since my lamps don't use one. My only grumble is the cost of these expensive bulbs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by splattj Bright light, poor color
These are listed as "daylight" 5000k but these bulbs are much more of a white light than a natural daylight color. I expected something slightly whiter than a tungsten bulb but these are just too white for my taste.
The bulbs themselves are very well constructed and do not flicker with a dimmer.

I had first wanted to buy the old curly cfl light bulbs but then read up on the LED's. These bulbs though a little more pricey than regular cfl's are amazing not only in the light they give off but also look like normal bulbs..not all cork screwy. I purchased the "daylight" dimmable bulbs for my bathroom. It is excellent for putting on cosmetics...true color...no shadows. Happy with purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LightMan Great bulb and best price on the web!!
Come on quickly and dims well. I had 6 connected to a dimmer so keep that in mind when reading reviews.
