Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jgrevich The best LED bulbs if you use a dimmer
I'm surprised that these are discontinued, they are by far my favorite LED bulb (I tested about 10-12 different models before landing on this one). They have the best color range, esp. when you dim them low and it changes to the 2200K LEDs and they were also the most quiet (some of the other bulbs had a bit of a buzz/hum when dimming, these do too but not close to as loud as the others).

This takes care of my one remaining gripe with LED bulbs. In a recording studio you often want to dim the lights to set a mood, but all previous LEDs, instead of helping create a warm, relaxing atmosphere, would just look dark and cold. Now these come out - problem solved. If only they were $10 each, they'd be perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LAJim Great lights and they dim very well.
I tested many light bulbs from all the manufacturers. I settled on these lights for my kitchen. They are awesome. The light emitted looks like traditional incandescent light. They dim very low. They are brighter than my old 65 watt lights. I removed two cans. I only have 6 lights now instead of 8. My electricity bill dropped. I am very happy with my purchase.

Perfect for ambiance, better range of dimming - love these bulbs! More like incandescent lighting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AidanD55 Nice dimmable lights - slight noise
I read James' review, and ordered these lights. I agree with everything he said.
I actually had some other dimmable LED flood lights that I tried in the location. My wife and I agreed that the standard lights were too white/blue when they dimmed. The "regular" LED bulbs dim to this pale moonlight white sort of glow. As the name and product description state, these particular bulbs change color when they dim, to a more golden yellow/orange/sunset type glow (much like incandescent lights). When they dim, they are a lovely, warm light.
The only issue that I noticed is that these lights do have an audible hum. I'm not sure if that's a "feature" of all LED flood lights, but I noticed the noise in these. The hum is the only thing preventing me from giving these 5 stars.
However, that said, the noise isn't that much. I'm ordering more of these lights for another location.
Hope this helps you!

Finally, a dimmable LED flood that ACTUALLY dims in a way that is indistinguishable from an incandescent flood. The color is bright at full power, and dims to a very low and warm color on low power. I plan to replace all the bulbs in my can lights with this bulb.

Avoids harsh light when used at low dimming levels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Exactly what we were looking for...
After reading the other views here and purchasing another brand of LED flood lights, I decided to purchase these. We were looking to replace our incandescent flood light bulbs in all of our recessed lights.
I purchased another brand, and the light would not dim as low as our incandescent bulbs. I had read that this was very common with LED lights. On the lowest setting, the light was a lot brighter than what we were used to on the lowest setting for the incandescent bulbs. Humming, noise and flicker were also common issues with LED lights.
After doing research and reading reviews, I decided to order two of these to test them out (Home Depot allows you to return them to a brick and mortar location if you need to return them).
They are heavier than incandescent flood lights, but did not weigh more than the other brand we tried. I installed both of the lights across from each other. I had my dimmer switch on the lowest setting and turned it on. To my amazement, they came on instantly and the lights were identical to my incandescent lights across the room. The light was a golden yellow/orange glow which is exactly what we were looking for. I had to look back and forth at the incandescents and these LEDs' and could not see a difference. We also had Lutron and Leviton dimmer switches installed for our recessed lighting. I listened for any noise or hum and there was none. Then I slowly turned my dimmer to its highest setting and the lights grew brighter without any flicker. These LEDs' are definitely brighter than our incandescent flood lights and we most likely will not set them that high unless we are looking for something! But the lowest dimming setting is what set these apart from the other LED lights and why we purchased these. Surprisingly, after an hour, these lights were remarkably cool to touch.
They are more expensive than the other LED flood lights we found on various websites. Prices will eventually go down, but I think these are definitely still worth it.
I also agree with TheDoctor when ordering these. Make sure in the description it mentions the "Dimtone" feature. This is what sets these apart from the other LEDs'. I wanted to order a 4-pack of these, and found them, but realized they were not the "Dimtone" flood lights. I ordered these and received in a few days from Home Depot.
I never thought I would get so excited about new light bulbs...just give these a try and you will see what I mean! Will definitely save you money in rising energy costs and replacement as they are designed to last over 20 years.
