Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TDB1 Great replacement
I think you pay a little more for the Phillips but I think overall they are worth the money. The Quality is the best I have seen in all the LEDs out. I have replaced most of the bulbs in my house with Phillips LEDs and have not had any problems. The Bulbs look great in can lighting. They Dim up and down very well even with my older (not LED rated) dimmer. I try to find the ones that have been reduced in price and buy a few each payday so I don't go over budget. I hope this helps if your Looking to switch over.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaleB Nice for 1/2 Bath
My wife had put a CFL light in the bathroom and it took a while to light up. This turns on almost instantly. Now I want 5 more for my master bath, and 2 for my great room. It's nice they're on sale for $14.97. I couldn't find them cheaper anywhere else. It appears to be about 1/4 inch longer, but it's not. The silver band and different shaped end makes it look longer. If your can/rim aren't securely attached, the heavier bulb will pull it down some as you can see in my picture. It appears I need to look at the way my can is attached, so the weight is going to make it a bit of pain..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TicToc Great light... great price..
Picked up at HD for around 16 a piece. Replaced 15 total 65 watt incadescent recessed bulbs. I was very happy 2700K light range which produced very bright light. They were so bright, I put an LED dimmer for $20. A side note, when using the dimmer switch, the lowest range of the LED is still brighter than the lowest range of the incadescent bulb. Also, after you add the dimmer switch, it takes a second for the lights to come on. Not a big deal for me!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank A technological marvel
This ceiling can flood light has excellent features:
1. Uses only 13 watts, easily producing at least as much light as the 65 W bulb it replaced.
2. It comes on instantly with full brightness.
3. It fits nicely in the can, with apparently the same outer envelope as the bulb it replaced.
4. If it lasts the 22.3 years advertised, it represents terrific value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrankCat Never a flicker, warm bright light
After trying to deal with other brands of Leds I purchased at big box stores this bulb is a winner all around. I was tormented with annoying flickering at all light levels even after installing a dimmer that was Led compatible. The light is warm when dimmed and bright enough to work exceptionally well when preforming kitchens tasks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fizzie Product is a money saver, the packaging is torture to open
I replaced 11 incadescent bulbs with these LEDs. According to the claim I just cut my energy useage by 80%- 11 lamps @65 watts(incadescent) vs 11 LEDs @13watts. The light is brighter and whiter too. They are significantly heavier and feel sturdy/well made. They dim with a standard dimmer just like the old bulbs too. I have no complaints about the appearance either like another person did. So all in all I am happy with the product and if they last the predicted 20 or so years even better...it's all about saving money on my electric bill and I predict the bulbs will have paid for themselves within 6 months easily. I do have a complaint about the packaging, it is one of the toughest plastic presspacks I have ever come across. I used a good pair of scissors and even then it was a struggle so be careful. The packaging, the plastic presspack and cardboard around that, from just these 11 lamps filled a huge shopping bag and trying to compress it by hand is futile. Perhaps if they packaged them better, with less plastic they could even lower the price ! In any event it is all headed for the recycling and the savings into the bank!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BubbaFet Works great, difficult to tell the difference from incandescent
I replaced incandescent bulbs with these. The light is indistinguishable from the incandescent, and the dimming works well. There is a split second delay when turning on the lights.
They dim to a brighter lowest setting than the incandescent bulbs. This could be a pro or a con depending on what you want. The lowest setting is still functional light and remains whiter while the incandescent yellows at lower levels, but maybe not the right mood if you want to go darker.
Very expensive, but hopefully the power bills will drop enough to offset the cost in due time. Haven't had them long enough to test the reported longevity of 22 years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobInPA Works Great
I replaced 4 incandescent lights in the 12 foot ceiling in our great room. They are on a dimmer and work with no problem. The light output seems to be a slight bit greater. There is a VERY slight delay when we turn them on. If you look at the light itself it is somewhat more harsh than looking at the incandescent light. This is not a problem for me since I don't stare at the ceiling! :-)
I was able to get the packaging off with little difficulty. I found that using a heavy pair of scissors I cut across the package as close to the face of the bulb as I could. The plastic then split and I easily just cut up over the bulb enough to spread the plastic and remove the bulb
