Customer Questions & Answers

Are these bulbs dimmable?

The specifications on the single bulb shows it is dimmable but the 3-pack specification says it is not dimmable. The reviews are confusing since some reviews say they are dimmable but others state they are not dimmable. Are the bulbs in the 3-pack dimmable or not?
Asked by: John
No they are listed as non-dimmable on the site and on the box...

What does it mean in the specs when it says "can not be used with a timer"

Asked by: mike1
If you're using a mechanical timer with this LED bulb, it should work just like your light switch and be fine. If you're using an electronic timer, it must be one designed specifically for "inductive loads" such as a fan motor, CFL, or anything with a transformer (e.g. LED light). Such timers have either a mechanical relay inside (which works like your light switch) or they have a phase delay in the gate circuit of the triac that electronically switches the timer. Yes, you can "force" a non-complaint electronic timer to work by placing an incandescent bulb in parallel (same circuit) as your LED bulb to bias the triac on successfully; however, if that incandescent bulb later burns out, your LED bulb will start to blink and will eventually be damaged by the improperly biased triac in the timer.

Are these 3000K or 2700K color temperature?

Hi I noticed on the package details and the listing that these are listed as 3000K but the item number has the indicator 27K. I'm pretty sure these aren't 3000K but I wanted to confirm before ordering.
Asked by: proxybox
They appear to be 2700k

Are these bulbs supposed to make a 'buzzing' noise?

Just got my 3-pack and installed them into a floor lamp and noticed when I turned the lamp on, all 3 of the bulbs make a 'buzzing' sound. Is this normal for these particular bulbs? I have a few other LED bulbs (different brands and shapes) and they don't make any 'buzzing' noise.
Asked by: retromom2
No this is not normal. You should be able to take them back to Home Depot for replacement bulbs.

40W Equivalent Soft White (3000K) G25 Non-Dimmable LED Light Bulb (3-Pack) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great replacement I had a kitchen table downlight fixture with incandescent bulbs. I switched to a Utilitech fluorescent G25 bulb, but they took too long to get to full brightness. Since I am slowly converting to LED I looked for a Cree bulb but was unable to find a Cree G25 bulb. I really like Cree and have more than 30 already. But since I have some TCP candelabra base bulbs in exterior fixtures that I've had good luck with, I tried these. I put one of these 40W LEDs next to a 60W fluorescent- these are ever so slightly whiter- but no difference in light output. Instant on, great light and if they do as well as the other TCPs I have I will be quite happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our bathroom fixture I needed three decorative bulbs for our bathroom light fixture and these fit the bill just fine. It is a small bathroom and the light from these is more than adequate. I so love LED bulbs as compared to CFLs with their unreliable longevity. I dated these bulbs at install time, but I seriously doubt they are going to die before I get around to changing the bathroom fixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Lighting I used to only use three of the six incandescent light bulbs in my bathroom vanity light fixture. With my new LED globe lights from the Home Depot, I use all six lights as it is much brighter and less heat. I also placed these light in my master bathroom. My wife and I really appreciate the new lights versus the older incandescent light bulbs. We tried CFL bulbs at one time, but they aren't near as good as this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bright enough light but it's greenish I needed lights that don't throw off heat because of the way my lights are situated in the bathroom. I looked a long time and finally found these. The light is bright enough but it makes skin and hair look greenish. I had bulbs before that provided natural lighting and loved the light. With these, I don't have the heat but I had to trade light quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far better than CFLs and pleasing color for bathroom use These LED bulbs replaced CFLs in our master bathroom. We find the light to be pleasing and expect the bulbs to last far longer than the CFLs they replaced. The LED bulbs produce far less heat and use less energy. If planning to use these bulbs in fixtures with shades, be sure to compare the bulb's dimensions to your light fixture. These bulbs have a larger diameter than 'normal' incandescent bulbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love LED light bulbs! I got rid of all my incandescent light bulbs and have switched all of them to LED. I hate CFLs -- they are dim. These bulbs are so much brighter and don't get hot. Plus it should save me $ in my monthly electric bill. It is a win win. And they are to last for years!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from they buz, all 9 bulbs which we purchased Color was a perfect soft white, these 40w seemed brighter than the 60w bulbs they were going to replace. If you don't mind hearing a humming noise, then get them as they are a good deal. I ordered 3 3-packs when they first went on sale and eagerly awaited their arrival. I was quick to install them all. I then brought my wife to see them and the first thing she said was, is that them humming? At first I thought it might just be one of the bulbs so I checked each of them individually, all 9 of them, and if you listen for it you could clearly hear it. It was easy to hear them in the confines of the bathroom. In the openness of the dining room I had to stop and listen for them, but it was unmistakeably there and disappeared as soon as I unscrewed it. One bulb also had its screw installed crooked so it pointed to one side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They did the job! When they hit the desired price, I ordered 18 of them to refit 3 bathrooms. What a hit! They are perfectly compatible with incandescent bulbs, instant on and guests on the property will never notice the difference! In energy savings alone, my Electrical Engineer son calculated that my investment will be returned in about one year! I figure that to be a pretty good economic rate of return!
