Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal bathroom light bar bulb This LED Globe bulb is the perfect replacement for the incandescent version. It is actually a little brighter than the 40 watt incandescent bulb and can be used with a dimmer if desired. It does not require warm up time to reach full brightness as does a CFL. There is a barely noticeable half second delay, but no noise or flickering as with some CFLs. This bulb looks just like an incandescent globe bulb, not like a "pigs tail" or "curly fry" and consumes only 5 watts each for 40 plus watts of light. That's 30 watts consumed for 240 plus watts of light for a six bulb light bar. Can't beat that. October 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm shocked! I consider myself very picky about lighting around my house. I ordered 6 bulbs for a bathroom vanity based on the reviews that I read online and I am very happy with the output quality. These are very close to the real incandescent bulb color, slightly brighter. I haven't received my electric bill yet as I am converting most of my bulbs to LED's, so can't comment on the savings yet. I do know I WILL be ordering more for my other bathroom vanity. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Decorative LED So, I have been on a campaign to replace all of our home light bulbs with energy efficient ones, much to the irritation of my wife. She does not like compact fluorescents and when I put dimable LED's in the dining room lights she complained about the odd light dispersion pattern they emitted. So replacing the decorative light bulbs in the bathroom vanities was going to be a challenge. I had them on my target list because they gave off a lot of heat and made the bathrooms pretty warm and uncomfortable during the summer months. I replaced the decorative incandescent vanity light bulbs with the SOFT WHITE (2700K) G25 LED bulbs when my wife was out of the house and did not say anything to her. It's been 2 months now and she still has not noticed. The bulbs give a rich warm light, every bit as good, if not better than the conventional incandescent decorative bulbs, but at a much lower energy cost and without the large amount of heat the incandescent bulbs typically generate. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and the performance of these LED bulbs. December 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only 300 Lumens, But Still A Great Bulb The packaging of this dimmable G25 globe style bulb shows 300 Lumen rating. Bulb still seems a bit brighter than 40 watt soft white incandescent type, when side by side. Nicely balanced light diffusion, without harsh bright spot in the center that other LED bulbs can have. Not uncomfortable to look at bare bulb, like some LEDs are. Dims easily to 50% (my lowest setting) without any buzz or hum in 12 bulb fixture. Short ramp up to full brightness is pleasant on eyes. Priced less than CFL globe bulbs, which take a while to warm up to full brightness. Best globe-style LED for the price I have found so far. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Satisfied, better than expected I have a bathroom fixture that took 10 40W bulbs and therefore burned 400 watts undimmed. The new bulbs use only 5 watts (total 50 watts for the fixture) and produce MORE light so that we often use the dimmer. Very nice color (2700K) so it's the same warm white that we're accustomed to. No regrets and they will pay for themselves over time on the electrical bill savings as electricity here in NH is quite expensive. October 15, 2013
