Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tertz29 Great LED flood lamps
These are Philips flood lamps. Philips is the leader in LED bulb technology and these are terrific flood lamps. They are long shafted so they'll fit in any fixture. They come with a good reflector lens that truly makes it a flood lamp unlike some LED floods that provide a narrow, distinct beam. These bulbs dim well have a nice color light. We are very pleased with the product.

I bought these for the kitchen and they have not disappointed. I also have them on a dimmer without any problems. I previously used a dimming halogen bulb but that had a short delay upon power on and the light refracted on certain objects with a rainbow type effect. It also takes a minute or two reach full brightness. Needless to say, I wasn't that happy.
This LED does not have any of the issues mentioned above. I applaud Phillips on these bulbs. It dims without an issue, has no delay upon power on and is instantly bright. I would like to mention only one small con. If you plan on using this bulb for dimming(like in a movie room), the lowest setting is still pretty bright. This is because the LED runs on such low power that even the lowest dim setting will still be significantly brighter than an incandescents light output. With all of that said though, I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this with the information provided.

These LEDs perform excellent ! Get a Lutron LED/CFL dimmer that can be adjusted with the turn of a dial to adjust to a lower level or stop blinking. The dial is on the dimmer itself and is covered when the face plate is on. Good bye to compact fluorescents.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MurseJeff Great upgrade from CFL
These bulbs were sold as an internet promotion, at a very competitive price, for that they were a great deal. After installing then I was pleasantly surprised as I was replacing CFL bulbs that were taking too long to warm up in cold winter months. These instant on bulbs occasionally flash once before turning full on, but are instantly bright and dimmable to an acceptable level, based on their technology. Just a dimmer note. The lowest setting will occasionally cause a bulb to turn off, so you'll have to find the sweet spot if you find yours are off and bump up a tiny bit. I bought 8, ask were flawless..

I replaced 5 65w incandescent flood lights with these. The short delay that exists when you turn them on isn't noticeable if all of the lights are the same. It is noticeable if you have a mixed group of bulbs.
In a recessed can housing, you'd have to be looking for it to notice that the bulb is not an incandescent, and can probably only tell if it is turned off.
It puts out noticeably more light than a 65w incandescent bulb. I plan on adding a dimmer to these lights.
As soon as they can drive down the price, these are a game changer for the lighting market. Right now they're more of a novelty than a practical purchase.

Purchased 3 cases of the Philips 13-Watt BR30 indoor soft white light bulbs. Installed them in my kitchen and bedroom. Originally purchased a different LED brand, but the bulbs "hummed" when they were dimmed, took awhile before they turned on, and didn't dim down to a sufficiently low level. These bulbs don't hum, dim beautifully, provide a pleasant hue of light, and turn on imediately. I am purchasing two more cases today.
By the way, Amazon has this same light individually priced at $66.16 per bulb!
The only negative I have read, and I agree with is the packaging is difficult to open. Watch the sharp plastic.
If you are looking for LED for your canned indoor lights, this is the one to get!
