I have an older 3 light floor lamp with a slider dimmer switch on the base. Will these work in that type of lamp since it is not a wall mounted separate dimmer?

Answer: 
Yes, they should work well. However, do not expect the same dimming curve as with an incandesant bulb. They will not fully dim until the power is practically cut off. LEDs are so effiecient that they continue to give some light, even with little supplied voltage.
I tried five of these lamps in parallel with a 40 watt incandescant lamp with an electronic type dimmer. The incandesant lamp lost brilliance

Yes, they should work well. However, do not expect the same dimming curve as with an incandesant bulb. They will not fully dim until the power is practically cut off. LEDs are so effiecient that they continue to give some light, even with little supplied voltage.
I tried five of these lamps in parallel with a 40 watt incandescant lamp with an electronic type dimmer. The incandesant lamp lost brilliance rapidly, while the dimmable LED lamps dimmed obediently, but not nearly as rapidly. The LED lamps also did not fully extinguish until the power was completly turned off.
The lamp life should be practically unaffected by dimming, while the old style incandescant lamp's life is greatly enhanced at lower voltage levels. However, the rated life of a standard lamp is on the order of 1000 hours, while the expected life of the LED lamp exceeds 22 years at 3 hours burn time per day. Read Less

Answer: 
Well. I bought them and they did not work in this older floor lamp. Just to make sure, I changed the bulbs between other lamps. They worked fine in my newer lamps. I needed to upgrade all my other lamps anyways, so I was not out anything.

Answer: 
Dimmer switch may need to be rated for LED bulbs, as newer ones are.
Though setting on these is the same for incandescent and LED, so older dimmers may work.

The rated energy comsumption of these lamps is 5 watts at line voltage (120 volts)
The published life expectancy is 22.8 years at 3 hours burn time per day.
The obvious question is: These lamps were not invented / feasible 23 years ago, so how could they have been tested for that period??

The published life expectancy is 22.8 years at 3 hours burn time per day.
The obvious question is: These lamps were not invented / feasible 23 years ago, so how could they have been tested for that period??
The answer to that question (while obviously uncertain) lies in the testing experience with many many solid state devices of similiar design and construction, and thus mean-time-before-failure projections.
Note that while failure of incandescant lamps is generaly due to filament evaporation and then breakage, resulting in sudden complete failure; end of life failure of LEDs is more typically due to a slow reduction in brightness. (or the failure ot the supporting electronics circuitry, which tend to be very long lived.) Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
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 No Regrets These bulbs are brighter than the 40 watt regular bulbs that I replaced in a light bar in our bathroom. That only took one day to get accustom to. I did install a dimmer switch and that works well. The bulbs will only dim about 3/4 the way before they go completely out. I don't really think that a dimmer switch is necessary. I just wanted to see how well it worked out. Just remember, these bulbs are an investment and WILL more than pay for themselves. I'm buying more LED bulbs for other high usage areas. June 10, 2015
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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not as advertised, but ok Experience with Home Depot was great. These bulbs are advertised and labeled as 2700k "warm white". I have other LED bulbs that are 2700k and they are quite a bit warmer than these. I would say these are more like 3500k. I am going to live with them, but I was disappointed that they were quite a bit "cooler" white than I anticipated. If this is an issue for you, I would buy a different brand. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Humming has stopped! I have 2 bathrooms which each has a long bar vanity light system, 1with 14 bulbs and the other with 16. They each had older dimmable switches installed with older bulbs in them when we purchase the home last year. I switched out the bulbs for CFL's (big mistake) I had a humming sound that started from the bulbs so I put in a CFL/LED rated dimmer switch but still had humming. I tried dimmable Cree brand LED's but still had humming. Only now that I have installed these TCP dimmable bulbs has the humming stopped! Magic at last! A bulb brand may make the difference. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes light, not heat We use these in both bathrooms, four to the room, with Leviton Illuma Tech dimmers. Full on, they make noticeably more light than the incandescents they replaced. The dimmer control alone won't take them down to complete darkness but they transition smoothly and will provide very low lighting--an excellent night light that allows nocturnal use of facilities without having to turn them up. During the day, we set the dimmer slide to mid-range and use the on/off switch. They work great! September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent LED bulb I was looking to replace some old 40 watt incandescent bulbs with these because the LEDs are so efficient and don't give off the heat that incandescent bulbs produce. I discovered that the "40-watt equivalent" LEDs are much brighter than the old 40 watt bulbs I replaced. I got 8 for about $65 dollars on sale. I think they are pretty pricey when not on sale - something like $20 each, which is too expensive, in my opinion. August 27, 2014
