Answer: 
I have one bulb in use right now, and it doesn't make any noise while it's on. If its on for a short while, immediately after being turned off, I will hear one to three 'clicks', equally spaced apart over a second and a half or so.

Answer: 
I have about 20 of these and most of them pop as well. I suspect the noise is due to thermal expansion and contraction of the plastic from the heat of the LEDs. The noise is not due to arcing - a simple way to tell is to turn off the breaker that feeds the light at the panel. If you still hear noises from the bulb after the breaker is off (as I do, about 5 minutes after the bulb turns off), it's not Read More

The noise is not due to arcing - a simple way to tell is to turn off the breaker that feeds the light at the panel. If you still hear noises from the bulb after the breaker is off (as I do, about 5 minutes after the bulb turns off), it's not arcing, as there's no electricity present to arc*.
(*There are a couple of times when this isn't true and there is still electricity present - but for that, the circuit would need to be multi-wire, the breaker would need to be untied, and the light would have to be wired backwards so that the neutral was switched rather than the hot. Unlikely you'd see all three mistakes at once)
Another piece of evidence supporting a thermal explanation: the crackling noises only happen when the light has been on for a while (i.e. the bulb has had time to heat up), and they happen again minutes *after* power has been removed from the bulb (i.e. when it's cooling down). Read Less

Tony - I have bought many of these light bulbs, as we had a special on them with a Govt rebate here in Ontario, Canada.
I have not heard any popping or cracklying noise when they are turned on.
BUT...almost everyone of them throughout the house, will make a few crackling / pop sounds immediately when they shut off.
I'm not sure why, ask the CFL bulbs that were in all of these sockets NEVER made any sounds whatsoever. So i know for a fact, that all of my sockets / wiring are fine.
I do believe that it's a design fault or something to do with the plastic heating up from the LED bulbs, as they do produce a bit of warmth when on.
I too, am looking for an answer. These popping / crackling sounds I noticed immediately, and am wanting to know why they are doing it, and furthermore, want bulbs that do not make any of these noises.
I posted a video clip of my experiment to show you all what this crackling sounds like.

Tony, A popping noise when turning on ANY light is NOT normal behavior. I would stop using the bulb making that noise and return it for an exchange.
If the new one also makes a popping noise it can possibly be a loose wire in your socket's circuitry and you might need to have an electrician correct that.
Also it could be something as simple as the bulb not making proper electrical contact and the popping noise can be an electrical arcing sound as the electricity jumps to make contact.
Make sure the bulb is screwed in tightly and check the center prong of socket, sometimes that needs to be pulled out slightly to make a good contact with the bulb.
PLEASE ONLY adjust the contacts in the socket with the circuit breaker power OFF for your safety.
I hope this helps, as I use a lot of these Philips slim LED's and have NEVER heard any of them make a Popping noise as you describe.
Good Luck in fixing this issue.

When they say "Dimmable" in the description of these bulbs, what they mean is that this bulb is dimmable in the same way a regular incandescent bulb is dimmable when used with a wall dimmer.
Some LED bulbs will not dim with a wall dimmer, so that is the reason they specify it is dimmable.
It is totally different however from a 3 way type bulb. They do make 3 way type LED bulbs now also but they aren't cheap yet.

Not with the older dimmer.The solution is to buy a dimmer switch rated for both CFL and LED bulbs. Two reputable manufacturers of CFL/LED dimmers are Leviton and Lutron; both provide lists of bulbs they've verified will work with their dimmers. Next, buy dimmable CFL and LED bulbs that you know will function with your switch.

Answer: 
No they will not exhibit three way bulb characteristics. A three way socket has three points of contact but one way bulbs only have two. Some sockets have a dimmer built in, though using them with LED lamps is questionable.

Answer: 
No, that won't work, these bulbs don't have the 3-contact base like a 3-way bulb uses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pay 2 dollars more for dim and slick design I love the design, and its ability to dim. You can get the same round, non-flat, non-dim version for maybe ~$2 each. But these babies last so long the extra $2 dollar gets you this kind of style, which fits really well into a modern / contemporary home. The only trouble is if you are trying to fit this flat or vertical into a base, you might have to unscrew it from the tight position to get it to line up. It still seems to work even when not fully screwed in, so I guess it's not too bad after all. Finally, note it is not meant for use in fully enclosed space. This is too bad but it is a common thing for LED bulbs. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great LED lights Have these lights over a bathroom vanity, plenty of light and I like the fact their cover is plastic instead of glass. Great lights! August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Get more? I bought a three pack and am going back for more. I recomend you buy a one or three pack and see if it fits your lighting set up. The lights DO get hot! They are cool to the touch if they are off for a while and then you touch them. They look kinda funky but distribute light evenly. If they are placed in a bathroom they may be viewable by guests but it may be a conversation starter if the food you cooked didn't turn out so well. They are bright and do turn on like a standard bulb. Don't know if they will really last 22 years like the box estimates but it's a step in the right direction. November 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 Over 100 installed, 200 to go. We are using these lamps in our hotel. I have 50 of the 8 watt that have been in use for over 18 months with no problems. These are on dimmers. Just installed 100 of the 10.5 watt, working great. We have over 200 more to go. We will be purchasing these soon. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 22.8Yr light bulb This bulb very durable.Supposed to last 22.8 yrs.I hope so.Only uses 10 watts and is supposed to be as bright as a 60 watt bulb but seems much brighter. Love them,so far so good April 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 1, 2014
