Customer Questions & Answers

Is this instant on type LED?

Turn on Instantly or lag time?

This bulb shows as 90W. My kitchen currently uses 60W. Can I use this 90W LED bulb?

Asked by: Swann007
Yes. Because this product is dimmable, you can control the amount of light. If you are happy with 60W of lighting, then you can dim the LED PAR38 to the equivalent.

Can these bulbs be used outdoors?

I was thinking of replacing a floodlight outside with an LED floodlight, but want to be sure these are designed to be outdoors also?
Asked by: Todd
The manufacture states they are for indoor use but I have been using this product on my covered porch for several months now and have had no problems.

Customer Reviews

90W Equivalent Bright White (3000K) PAR38 Dimmable Flood LED Light Bulb is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good if you can find one I recently bought one of these when the price dropped around 35%, in April 2013. Previously I bought Home Depot's equivalent EcoSmart bulb, 406027, 950 lumens, 3k degrees Kelvin, PAR30. I have 4 of those and the one Philips I refer to here, all in my kitchen recessed ceiling fixtures. It's really hard to tell them apart, and of course I've had them all less than a year so it is again hard to speak to performance issues in the long-term. 3000 degrees Kelvin exhibits a slightly cool rendition but is a lot better than higher color temperatures. If there had been a 2400 degree bulb, I would have opted for that. My solution/workaround was to take some amber-colored theater lighting gels, cut them up into small triangles and tape them directly to the lens of the bulb (covering the whole lens didn't work for me). To my spouse's delight the color is much closer to the incandescent spots she had been using before. I am happy so far, but if I might be critical, 950 lumens is not the same as a 90-watt incandescent. It is much closer to a 65-watt like the ones we replaced. This kind of skewed information is wide spread over the entire LED home market. That, and the high prices for this technology keep people scratching their heads. Fortunately now there are next-generation bulbs from Philips and Cree that now cost 30-50% less than "old generation" in March, so if a better understanding of color and lumens equivalence could be better explained and with real accuracy, maybe the customer will develop confidence in purchasing LEDs. Home Depot has been great to carry both brands and is decent in exchanging them if you are disappointed. Hopefully Ecosmart bulbs will be out with lower pricing as well. Otherwise the reduction in electricity usage is born out in my electric bill - my kitchen is now using 86 watts instead of 325 watts. Most of my house is now LED or CFL. So, I recommend these bulbs if they're still available at reduced pricing, and replacing all the incandescents in your house with either technology or a combination as I have. Good luck on your lighting quest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lamps Great lamps, love the dimming capability. I use it for jewelry photography, works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The color given off is great we placed six of these new LEDs in our kitchen area. we were replacing 90w indoor flood light bulbs. The lighting really seems to bring out the colors in our granite countertop. Obviously we are excitted by the energy savings as well. We live in the Houston area, so it is also nice to not have the heat given off by the old bulbs for us to have to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as sunlight. The Majority of the lighting in my home is Recessed High Hats in 14 foot ceilings. what this means is without the proper bulbs the lighting in my home is terrible. These (while quite the investment) solve the problem without compromise. The light it casts is bright but not unpleasantly so. The lumen balance is spot on so the light color is just right. Not to blue not to yellow. The only down side other than the cost is the light will put any unclean area it shines on in start contrast. Though this is more a problem of my cleaning technique than the bulb itself. Also make sure your fixtures are well secured as these bulbs are quite a bit heavier than normal floods. I rarely rate anything 5 stars. To me 4 stars is top of the range while 5 stars is "blow me away" innovative. I will make an exception here and rate a light bulb 5 stars despite the two minor cons. Give these a serious look if your are building a new home or replacing burnt out lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing amount of light from 18W I am amazed at the bright light produced by these bulbs. They are still new so I can't comment on lifespan but if they live up to predictions I will not need to wory about replacements in my lifetime. The only negative is price. I would still buy these and the price is falling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bright lighting! I am a firm believer in efficiency. I am glad LED technology has arrived at somewhat affordable pricing. I have two double spotlights for the back yard. Original bulbs were 75 watts, so I was using 300 watts when they were on. The kids were notorious for leaving them on. At that point I switched to the CFL type spotlight bulbs. Much better efficiency, but the lighting was poor and they took a few minutes to warm up. That was a poor choice. I purchased the LED type from Home Depot at a cost about $80 for 4. Not exactly cheap, but within my budget. Wow, what a difference. Minimal power consumption and a nice bright white light. I can't wait for the prices of LED to drop a little more so I can convert the rest of the lighting to LED. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well built LED I expect to be worth the investment These were my first set of LED floodlights. Usually use CFLs but wanted something efficient thats also dimmable. The bulb itself is pretty heavy, which makes me believe its solidly built, not like the cheap flimsy knock off brands. Obviously I'll have to wait several years to truly sense if these were worth it. But I got these on sale, so pretty happy with the purchase overall so far. Only con is that the light shines straight down, unlike a incandesant or cfl "flood" light. Seems like such a simple engineering flaw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LED swap for incandesents Easy to replace although even a 1/2 price they are expensive. Only bought 2, they are instant on and mine are on a dimmer and they dim very well. Keep in mind these are a bright white light and I would call them spot lights, not flood. I would like to replace all my lights with LED's but would search for a warmer light for the rest of mine in lieu of these.
