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?

Answer: 
Sorry, not dimmable. But I didn't have a need for a dimmer with these. The ones that are dimmable were much more expensive, and the lumens/wattage weren't good for my situation.

Answer: 
Indeed the packaging of the 3-pack bulbs I received indicate these are "Non dimmable." However, I did try dimming one using a dimmer that screws into a light socket. The bulb did dim to about half intensity before it went out. Although it did dim, I would NOT recommend using a dimmer with these since the manufacturer specifies they are non dimmable.

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.

Answer: 
Hi Mike1,
Led lights operate at a very low voltage, timers do not have a ground and will allow some voltage to travel through the circuit even when shut off.
This small amount of voltage will cause the led bulbs to glow.
With standard bulbs, this small amount of voltage leak, will not effect the bulb and the light will remain off.
Mike,

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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best replacement for Light I have purchased Bought these to replace the bathroom bulbs in a 3 bulb fixture. I was surprised at how bright and uniform the light is from these. Much brighter than the 40W Globe bulbs I had before. I was constantly replacing them @ 5 bucks A pop 2 to 3 times a year. These LED's will save me money in electric cost and more in Bulb Cost. I got these for 20 Bucks for 3 on sale but even @ regular price it would pay for them in saving in less than a year. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for Bathroom Vanity I replace eight 40W bulbs in the master bathroom reducing the power consumption from 320W to 40W. These LED bulbs are brighter and have excellent color rendering so my wife can apply her make-up. I also replaced three bulbs over the vanity in my hall bathroom and my daughter noticed and remarked, "Why is it so bright in here?" February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent replacement for a bathroom vanity These replaced CFL's in the master bath. My wife loves them. I prefer LED's for the usual reasons (cooler when on for a while, significantly less power draw). The only reason I took one star off, is that these are listed as the 3000K color items, but I was shipped the 2700K. Not a big deal, and not worth returning them over (especially with the cut-yourself hard plastic packaging shredded), but I did want a slightly cooler color in that bathroom, because the walls are off-white. If this is super important to you, make sure to buy in store, versus ordering online. My own guest bathroom will be getting 4000 or 5000K daylights, but 2700 to 3000 are all soft white. September 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking bulbs! Just the number of bulbs, wattage and color temp needed for the powder room fixture! December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LED bulbs to use when low clearance from bathroom ceiling is an issue Bulbs are perfect! Almost no heat for 2" from ceiling clearance. They provide excellent lighting, great energy savings, as well as long term money savings too. December 16, 2015
