Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HoustonHoward Impressed so far
I did have slightly mixed results. I first tried two of the bulbs in the open fixture over my breakfast table and they did not work. I then used one in the light bar over the bathroom sink and was very happy with the result. In spite of the flat shape of the bulb, the light is spread evenly. It also is brighter than the sixty watt incandescents it is meant to replace. I'll be watching for future sales on this to buy more. I downgraded the overall rating and quality due to it failing to work in the first fixture. Also note that these are not meant for use in closed fixtures, which keeps me from using it some places.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ctobob Good light, low power, runs cool, looks cool
I've been waiting for the Philips SlimStyle bulb to show up since seeing the annoucement late 2013. Not only does it have a great price for an LED bulb but it's lightweight and runs cool. I was concerned that it might not cast uniform light because of its shape, but in a lamp with a circular share there's no perceptible variation of the brightness coming through the shade. I can't tell the orientation of the bulb without looking under the shade.
I also have one in my office in a hanging Ikea paper lamp and I'm usually fussy about the color of light in my office (I don't run the overhead fluorescents) and the SlimStyle casts a soft warmish light without being so warm that I feel like I'm in a bedroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by afreeland Finally an LED that works
I have had a few different style LED light bulbs and was never really impressed but these are a different story. Extremely bright, turns on quickly (doesnt take time to 'warm up') and gave very uniform light comparable to a traditional light bulb.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rollins Nice bulbs with one caveat.
Initially I was very excited to install these bulbs, but we soon discovered that some of the bulbs generated a very noticeable buzz when installed in our recessed light fixtures. Others only emitted a mutted humming sound. In other fixtures in our house they were fine. We have not yet tried them with a dimmer, but will try that soon. We both like the light they provide, and that the are instantly at full capacity when the light switch is activated. I would recommend them with the warning to pay attention to any noise they might generate in your fixtures.

This bulb even work in recessed lighting and is brighter than the 60 watt bulbs I took out. They are a bit pricey and I hope the price comes down. I have many more bulbs that need replaced and this is the perfect bulb for the job!

I decided to try the LED bulbs in my outdoor fixtures, since they are on all night. They are so bright they fake out the solar cells, so some adjustments were required, but they're ok now. Haven't tried the dimming feature.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Redriver08 SlimStyle 60W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) A19 LED Light Bulb
The design engineer or production engineer is off by 1/8- 3/16 of an inch on this Lolly Pop design.
This LED Bulb is fine for LAMPS or the Garage. Why? This item DOES FIT into a Standard
Light Fixture/ Globe !! It is a little TO LARGE to go into a Light Fixture or Globe that once held
an incandescent light bulb.
This tells me that Home Depot does not contract with a private TEST LABORATORY to test new items before the new items are added to HD's inventory.
Walmart Corp uses an independent laboratory to test products to make sure new items meet ASTM ANSI requirements. FYI I have stock in both companies

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bear Unacceptable -- will be returned
We tried two bulbs. They both made an irritating humming noise when operating, not loud but very noticeable. Since they were installed in quiet rooms, this noise was unacceptable.
