Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnS Look and fit very similar to existing incandescent bulbs.
LED bulbs are taking over. And screw-in bulbs are easy to install and use. These particular bulbs have a nice shape to them that make them easier to retrofit into older existing fixtures.
I used these on some rooms that had adjustable overhead cans with eyeball directional covers. They were used to highlight a fireplace or mantel or wall bookshelf. The existing bulbs were 65W incandescent. I replaced them with these LED bulbs.
The fit was good. From the outside, they look very similar to the bulbs that were replaced.
The real test was the light color. These have a 2700K index which is good for indoor use. Don't go above 3000K for indoor use. The color was very similar but not exact to the incandescents they replaced. The light distribution was a little bit different. My old bulbs were more of a Spot-style because of the application (highlighting a room feature). These are more of a flood-style so the light spreads out more. You will notice the minor difference in the photos.
Even my spouse likes them (and usually is not into these types of changes).
Overall a good retrofit for similar incandescent bulbs.
These are not dimmable, but I don't use dimmers anyway. And with the power consumption so low, I like to leave them on a lot more now. Dimming seems unnecessary.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pollen First LED bulbs purchased
My first LED light purchase- they've been too expensive until these came along. Replaced my first incandescent and this one looks just like the others; possibly a bit brighter but the light color is the same as the others. Now we'll see how long it lasts, but happy with the purchase so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ted TCP 65W LED light non-dimmable
Bulbs appear great with light consistent with other manufacturers of the same wattage. Construction feels solid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dcmikez excellent value for nice soft white lights
These are great floods. They have a wonderful soft white light and I haven't had any issues with them. They look much better than the incandescents my electrician installed and although they're 65w equivalent, they're slightly brighter than a 65w incandescent bulb.
They are not dimmable. Right now, you can't beat the value on these, but you are forced to buy six of them at a time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ledbttr Outstanding value-priced flood light!
Lighting has really changed - yes it's more complicated, but the energy savings ARE worth it! HDepot has a great price on this 6-pk. I had accidentally put my box aside & then forgot about it, went out and purchased the well-regarded FEIT brand 6-pk also. So we did a side-by-side comparison using a hanging lamp. It was NO contest: despite identical specs, the TCP litebulb came on instantly (the FEIT had a noticeable hesitation), plus the light quality and intensity of the TCPs was far superior to the FEIT.
We ended up putting the FEIT bulbs away as back-ups and purchased another pak of the TCPs to change all our old track lights/recessed floods to the TCP LED bulbs. We're now using 110 watts total (11 lights) instead of 715 watts. These old eyes are celebrating, woohoo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RWS Great LED Flood Light
Ordered online for store pick-up and was an easy process. LEDs arrived at store earlier than promised. LEDs came in a nice, sturdy box. LEDs are of high quality with good light output (650 lumens) for only using 8.5 watts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bighead25 Dependable LED floods
This order completes our conversion from fluorescent to led floods for our house, indoors. I cannot say enough good about these bulbs, no waiting for full light, great electricity savings, all work. The price is reasonable too, I waited all year, got the first batch last year on sale. They'll probably work long after I'm gone, if the house is still standing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia Good Replacement, but still a little too bright
To be far, I do have some 65 watt recess bulbs that are brighter than other brands, even though the are all 65w. I'm just some one who is really light sensitive, so when you have 4 can lights in an 8 foot ceiling, the effect can be like an interrogation. I do like the thought of using these in summer, when my regular can lights make the kitchen kinda hot, then switch back in winter to the incandescent to help keep the house warm. If they where just a little dimmer, and softer they would be perfect. There's something about the light, that's still a little harsh. To be realistic about the true savings of LEDs, 1 incandescent bulb can burn for 10 hours and only cost me 8 cents, according to my utility. But, if you have a lot of can lights, using LEDs can help keep your house cooler, and more comfortable in the summer. That's the part I'm interested in. I took the temperature of one of my can lights with an incandescent, and it was 215 degrees. I took the temp of one of these TCP lights, and it was around 90 degree. Plus, the bulb doesn't ever get too hot to touch, or start a house fire. So I like the idea of these, they just need a little more tweaking to match the warmth of incandescent. I'm wondering, since they don't get hot, if I could spray some matte spray paint over them to help make them a little softer?
