Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by POHNY Good light, a fairly tight spot more than a flood
The light appears to be high quality. Very heavy to the feel. The light is fairly good. It has a bright spot in the center and a wide dimmer flood area. The light is rated at a little over 1,100 lumens which is quite a bit less than the 1,750 lumens produced by a 120 watt equivalent halogen bulb (83 watts). That said the light uses about 23% the electricity of the halogen bulb and should last close to forever so I rate it as a good value. I installed four of these two above a patio and 2 at corner if the house to light a back sidewalk and driveway. Plenty of light for the job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by summertimefun Great value
I've just purchased 25 of these bulbs for the house and am quite impressed with the quality. They're solid and heavy, meant for indoor or outdoor use, produce a good amount of light, and dims well. In the last 3 months, I've bought over 250 bulbs for the house and think these were some of the best purchases I've made. I wish my house had larger recessed lighting housing fixtures to accommodate these big bulbs.
I would definitely buy these again - great light for the price and they're rated for 50,000 hours! This is a super super deal.

These "flood" lights are bright. They are mounted about 10 feet above the garage floor. The beam hitting the ground is approximately 10 feet in diameter. They come on instantly even at very cold temperatures. Lately temperatures have been in single digits.
The claim is equivalency to a 120 watt incandescent and that seems about right. The narrow beam requires your lamp holders be spaced somewhat closer to one another to attain overlap of the lighted area. In my case they were fine.
I also have CFL flood lights in the same garage. They take several minutes to warm up and produce light that is adequate. The colder it is the longer they take. But the LED lights are on instantly at full brightness.
I can not comment on longevity. If they last as long as claimed I would purchase more of these. The special pricing has expired I noticed since I bought my LED lights. Still a good buy.

Bought and installed 24 of these. So far (after one month) no complaints. This LED fixture is a narrow focus flood, suitable for bathroom sink area, small closets etc. I don't think this is appropriate for living spaces as the light may be too concentrated. Warm white (2700 Kelvin) light is perfect for indoor home use. The heat sink is made of sturdy aluminum.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KeAka Big, heavy, and really, really bright.
Home Depot also sells a very nice Philips LED floodlight, 9/5 watts, equivalent to 65 watt bulb, in a very nice, natural warm color. $15 each, and highly recommended. But these are 19 watts, equivalent to a 120 watt bulb, and don't cost much more, so I bought a box. One lamp I'd like to put one in, it's too heavy and the flexible neck collapses. Two other lamps they won't fit in because the harp or shade is too small. They're a mesh of heavy aluminum, which I guess keeps them from getting too hot, which is what kills LEDs. These are also not floodlights, they're spotlights. Much narrower beam. If they fit in your ceiling fixtures over the kitchen counter, they'd be very nice replacements for bulbs. They have a lens at the end that focuses the beam. Warm color. You really can't tell they're LEDs by looking at the light. The 9.5 watt Philips are half as bright, but they weigh almost nothing, and they have a skinny shaft that fits more places. Both are highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AdamGins Works great, looks great!
Works great so far, I even had an electrical issue and both survived the short. Let's see how long they last.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lewis Flickers off and on after two years
I purchased nine for the recessed lighting in my kitchen. After two years I have replaced half of them due to flickering off for a few minutes and then on for a few minutes. They appear to have a built in temperature switch which keeps them from overhearing. They do run very hot and can heat up a kitchen.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jasman Not really an outdoor bulb
Great semi-spot beam. The description online says "Indoor or Outdoor use", but the box says that when used outdoor, must be in a concealed fixture. Almost any bulb can be used outside when it's in a concealed fixture! These are going back...
