Rated 2.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy, glare shows rainbow effect on nearby LED TV The light bulbs were packaged OK and received on time. They installed easily (as light bulbs should) in my Home Depot track light pendants. I'm powering them with a Lutron Maestro LED certified dimmer. The bulbs make a buzzing sound when powered on. The bulb is longer than a standard round incandescent candelabra base bulb, so the bulb envelope extends beyond the pendant lamp's shade. This leaves an odd glare and is a bit hard on the eyes. If it was in a totally enclosed fixture this may not be a problem. I have a Samsung LED TV mounted about 10 feet from the pendant lamps. These LED bulbs cause a rainbow in an "X" pattern on the screen. It is very distracting. Will be returning these items and going back to incandescent bulbs. June 10, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not suitable for overhead fan lighting IMO I bought this light for a ceiling fan lighting fixture because it had the highest Lumens within the candelabra category that I could find at the time and I wanted the room to be bright. Unfortunately, the way this bulb is designed, the light is a bit cooler/whiter than comparable 2700K lights that I've purchased and the direction and quantity of light proved to be too much for this application. The light is quite directed and the overall effect is that you end up getting blinded by the light as you pass by from the wrong angle. Otherwise I didn't have any quality issues with the light, just not the right type for me and not the right light temperature for my purposes. February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sylvania 25 watt -- Excellent I installed 32 of the Sylvania 25 watt. Now use about 10% of energy cost that replaced 32 40 watt incandescent blubs. In addition, the bulbs are much brighter than the old 40 watt and produce hardly any heat (important in air conditioning country in AZ). -- saving money on using and not having to spend more on air conditioning. Excellent. Even at $10 each, pay back period is estimated to be less than 2 years. October 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great for a month, then burned out. I was happy to finally see a high output LED bulb with a candelabra base for sale so I gave them a try. These bulbs started out great. They were brighter than the 60W incandescent bulbs they replaced and used a portion of the power. Unfortunately after about a month, both bulbs I bought no longer work. I'm not sure if there is a design defect or poor build quality but I do not recommend buying these bulbs. February 28, 2014
