Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy If price isn´t the main issue, then go for these
Absolutely great bulbs.
LED's have come down in price -been wanting them for two years-, and per my research and needs -using them on a huge 10 bulb chandelier I made-, these were by far the best.
The light output is par with the claim, the color index is way better than any the other bulbs that are not incandescent, they truly are dimmable (watch out for some not-so-accurate claims of others) and Phillips did away with the weird looks of the predecessor which I called the "hemorrhoid look", definitely improved now with a bulb that shines in almost all practical directions.
Hopefully they will continue coming down in price and further allow their use throughout my home...and some time in the future, be made so they can be used in enclosed fixtures which at this point is a no-no.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blah Great product, very minor buzz
Excellent product... Dims very well with both led dimmers and standard dimmers (dims smoothly), good light color, bright, instant on, and good looking bulb shape and style. Only issue is a very minor buzz... I mainly hear it coming from my wall sconces in my bathroom which are right at ear level, stuff like that normally drives me nuts but the noise is so minor that I only notice it if I am completely quite and pay attention to it. You will probably notice the buzz the first time you screw them in as you are acutely aware of everything the bulb is doing but after that you will not notice it, sure I wish they were absolutely silent, but it's not a deal breaker.
Of all the LED bulbs I've tried these are my favorite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joejoe if you dim, check dimmer compatibility
lights are not quite as dim at low settings using my old dimmer as the incandescents, and began to flicker. i double checked and there are dimmers made especially for LED bulbs. i now have to find one of those that i like and get it. so: check dimmers online ahead of time and get an appropriate one if you are upgrading to LED from incandescent.

I love these bulbs. I started out buying 12, and have now ordered another 16.
My house has a huge number of overhead lamps. With incandescent bulbs, they threw off a huge amount of heat and ate a lot of power. These replacements put out a lot of light, its got a great color and they run cold.
Only reason I downgraded the value is that these are pretty expensive. But since I've bought 28 of them, it is obvious that they are well worth it to me.

We bought some cheap dimmable LED bulbs from the competition, and they would not work in any multi bulb situation. They worked fine as a single bulb. We even got a special dimmer. We could not figure it out, but finally found that the bulbs just would not work that way. These bulbs are great. Good price, don't need special dimmer, and work in our 4 bulb track lighting system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnB Great looking bulb
I really wanted to buy Cree bulbs, buy, the Philips just look too good in the viewable fixtures to pass up. I did have to return one after two weeks (it just went out). No problems with the return. The color from these bulbs is very good, much warmer than earlier LED bulbs. If the price would come down a little more, they would sell like nobody's business.

I purchased bulbs from 5 companies and tested them out before choosing this as the winner. Really good light; excellent dimmability, no flicker. This just won hands down. All were expensive, so value isn't any worse with this one, but the light quality is much superior.
