I replaced four 40 watt bulbs with these LED 40 watt equivalent bulbs. These LED bulbs use only 5 watts each. The bulbs that were replaced were somewhat dim. The LED bulbs are bright and give off excellent light. Now instead of paying for 160 watts of electricity for dim lights I now use only 20 watts of electricity for bright LED lights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coneboy Good color, bright, great overall except watch out for
This is the frosted version. I also bought some clear versions (RLDCT5W27K3) and they are basically the same thing except the look. It didn't matter to me because I installed behind a frosted globe. I didn't try dimming these. Come right on, no buzz.
Watch out for the "off center look" you may get if installing in a sconce fixture like mine. Because the light doesn't emit from the lower half of the bulb, it made my lights look off center (see photo) I was able to bend the socked farther to one side to make it look more symmetrical.
Great job with the TCP brand. I like the color better than my cree A19 40w & 60w bulbs.

Subjectively, these bulbs appear brighter than the 40W incandescent they replaced. If they last as long as advertised, I probably won't be around to report, sorry.

I needed energy efficient dimmable bulbs that were candelabra base and these worked, well I just wished I could have got the 60w equivalent with the blunt tip and not the flame tip because of the light shades.

purchased 12 bulbs for chandelier over dinner table about one year ago. Used less than three hours a day. 3 of 12 are already dead.

While still too early to rate this product, after a few years of energy savings and not having to change light bulbs, I expect the rating will be quite good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Good color, bright even light
I've been looking for dimmable candelabra LED bulbs for a while now and they've only recently started to get down to halfway reasonable costs. I needed 16 for two chandeliers where the bulbs are fully exposed. After trying several types, these were the ones I went with. They have good color, aren't harsh to look at, very bright, quiet (as far as I can tell, they're about 8 feet up), and dim nicely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SMSinger 5 Watt brighter than 40 Watt Incond. bulb
Just screw in and save on electric. Additionally, this was used in a bathroom vanity where my wife sometimes uses a 1600 watt hair dryer. With five 40 or 60 watt bulbs there was a strain on the wires and breaker switches. The reduced current used certainly helps.
