Answer: 
There is a very slight delay when turning on these bulbs; so slight, you would have to be looking for it otherwise it really is not noticeable.

Answer: 
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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great lamps Great lamps, love the dimming capability. I use it for jewelry photography, works great! April 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! February 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light bulb review The light bulb works best in a small room such as a power room or closet. The light is extremely bright and works like a flood light. I tried replacing my basement light with this model and had to change back to my old bulbs because of functionality as flood light. It's a bit over priced, over all I would rate it a 3.5 Hope this was helpful. February 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not even equivalent to a 60W flood light This LED puts out just 950 lumens. If you compare it to a 60W incandescent halogen bulb, they put out 1070 lumens. And a real 90W halogen flood light puts 1700 lumens - almost twice as much as this LED bulb. Calling this LED bulb a 90W equivalent is a joke. March 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well-made floodlights. These are well-designed LED floodlights. LEDS are still pricey but I presume they will become more affordable. Problem is with my advanced age, I probably won't break even cost-wise until I'm compost. February 11, 2014
