Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RobLaw Finally an affordable LED Flood
I have some dimmable and some standard recessed ceiling fixtures. These lights are instant-on, and at full power they look just like the incandescents. When dimmed they don't exactly match the brightness of the incandescents, but that would be a lot to expect from LEDs. They are pretty heavy, so your fixture needs to be stable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Deuce Nice bulb but flickers with a dimmer
I have read a number of dimmable LED bulb reviews and was pleased to see that no reviews for this bulb indicated that it flickered when connected to a dimmer. Unfortunately, the bulb that I received does indeed flicker at any level (low all the way to full-on) when connected to a dimmer. When connected to a non-dimming switch, no flicker is present. In all fairness, the flicker is slight. I am concerned, however, that a room full of these bulbs on a dimmer would be very noticeable.
The color of the bulb is great. It matches the color of standard incandescent bulbs very well. The instant-on is also great - a huge improvement over CFL floods that I have installed. I've only had the bulb installed for a few days and am hoping that the life of the bulb is as advertised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomI Very satisfied so far!
Bought nine 14-watt TCP BR40 flood lamps to replace 65-watt incandescents in our kitchen. The bulbs illuminate to full brightness with no delay. Brightness is only slightly greater without dimmers, and the 2700K color temperature is close to the original bulbs (very pleasing). In addition, six or seven of the incandescents burned out each year, and we hope the extended life of the LED's will save on replacement costs. Since the kitchen is the most-used room in the house, we are looking forward to material energy savings. Only six weeks in, but we are satisfied with the purchase and plan to extend the use of these LED's throughout the house.

Excellent replacement for the previous bulbs. Price is fair and service was quick.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Davey126 Excellent replacement 23W CFL
Excellent light quality; indistinguishable from 85W incandescents. Turn on instantly with no flicker. Silent at full intensity (same when dimmed but that has a lot to do with the control). Naked bulb distributes light evenly across a fairly wide angle. Initially I tried an 18 watt variant from the same manufacturer as the output rating was similar to the CFL bulbs they were replacing (1250 lumens). Turns out they were too bright. These are perfect. Somewhere I read CFLs loose intensity with age. Something to consider when looking at LED replacements. When dimmed most LEDs maintain color temperature better than incandescents; these are no exception. Solid construction. Overall a great bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DoctorC Better than anticipated
I bought 12 to replace incandescent bulbs which were overheating my dimmer from the high current load. Worked great, and dimmer doesn't even get warm. They were of course brighter since I replaced 65 w with 85 w. The most pleasing aspect is that when I dim them, they retain their soft-white color, and don't turn a yellow color like the incandescent. I am very happy with the purchase, and plan to replace bulbs in other rooms in the near future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grumblecakes Very pleased so far
Just installed the 20 that we had orderd for our new construction and am very happy. They dim very smoothly with our Lutron switches with no drop off at the bottom and no buzzing or any other noises that I've read about in horror stories online. Also the color is excelent and the light output is as expected (our electrician couldn't tell the difference between these and the incandecents that hadn't been swapped out yet). Naturally I can't yet attest to the longevity but thus far I see no reason why these shouldn't last for many years to come.
