Answer This Question

A:  I just bought this bulb myself and have no idea what is in store for its longevity, durability, or interior workmanship. I would take it back to the place of purchase and simply indicate it may be defective in some way and see what they say. Is it worth making a stink over a single $20. electric light ? Maybe...

A:  Call Cree. They are very good about sending replacements.

A:  My guess is that it is another issue. I've never had a buzzing issue with an LED bulb, and I've installed lots of them.

by|Aug 30, 2016

A:  I had one of these bulbs in a good fixture without a dimmer. After less than 1,000 hours it dimmed to about a 60 watt bulb and started flickering once in a while. A lot less than the 25,000 hours promised. I checked the fixture again and it was still good so I bought a different brand, an ecosmart, and it works fine. I'm hoping it will last longer than the Cree. By the way, if you read the fine print, it says 100 watt LED bulbs should not be used in a totally enclosed fixture.

by|May 26, 2016

A:  I have not noticed any buzzing of my 4 installed bulbs of 9 months.

    Stay away! LED failures plus glass bulb detaches from base.
    We bought six of these bulbs for two brand new light fixtures in May 2013. We replaced one thinking it was a manufacturing error. Ha! In three years, out of 7 bulbs, three had the LEDs fail, followed by two where the glass bulb became detached from the base. Cree stinks. Stay away from this product. Hold on to every piece of packaging and receipts if you ever want to return it.

      I replaced all of my incandescents this past winter with LEDs , most are CREE bulbs. They have been in for six months or less. Today one of the 100 watt CREE bulbs in my basement died. This light is on less then one hour per day. I went to Home Depot to inquire about the Lifetime warranty and was told that I have to deal with the manufacturer. Well, for starters , the register slip is required . Who saves register slips for light bubs ? Then the bulb has to be sent to Cree for replacement. Well , of course I don't have the slip although I somehow do have the package probably because it wasn't in the socket very long. Of course , it would probably cost me more then the $3.97 that I paid for it to mail it so I might as well go buy another bulb from a different manufacturer.

        20 years or 2 years? Bought 4, all dead or dying.
        So disappointed on this product. Bought 4 two years ago. One failed last December, one did the same thing two weeks ago, and the rest two only have part of the led units working. All bulbs have debris inside. One got a loosed glue piece inside, and one got a big crack on the glass cover.

          Very Dim After Six (6) Months
          Purchased these bulbs to install into a new light fixture in our kitchen. Bulbs were bright at first and really brightened up the room. Now only after six months of use, they are so dim that you would think they were simulating candle light. I tend to read reviews with a grain of salt, but notice patterns for the reviewers. These bulbs were an impulse purchase, needed bulbs, high dollar LED's with a 10 year warranty, they had to be good "Right"? Boy did I make a $40 dollar mistake, (Purchased 2). Bulb manufactures depend on repeat business. I hope enough people read and review these bulbs to either force a change for the manufacture or put them out of business so that the manufactures who are concerned about the environment and their customers are left in business. The HD should stop selling these bulbs. I will not pursue the warranty after reading the reviews. Good luck on your purchase and I hope this review helps in your decisions.

          Goodbye CFL, Hello LED
          It's DIMMABLE. It's rugged- you couldn't breathe on the old CFLs without tearing them up. It's COOL. My big motivation for moving away from incandescent has always been HEAT, yeah, saving money is great, but I've seen so many fixtures burned up from over wattage. I'm surprised there aren't more house fires. It's BEAUTIFUL- the light is warm and pleasant.

          Great light, solid construction, price needs to come down
          Solid construction, almost seems shatter resistant. Great light output, consistent and clear. Soft white version is comparable to most soft white CFLs - but the output is bright from the start. The price needs to drop before I buy a house full of these, but I am pleased with the purchase so far. Note that the base of these is larger then most bulbs, almost as wide as the bulb itself.

          You Get What You Pay For
          LED bulbs are more efficient than CFL bulbs with equivalent ratings; but have a higher initial cost. Cree is a well-known manufacturer of LEDs for tactical flashlights and has a good reputation for quality in that market. I expect the same level of quality from Cree for their line of replacement light bulbs for home applications. The second most important consideration for my purchase of LED bulbs, for hanging pendant lamps in my kitchen, was appearance. Cree's 100 Watt equivalent LED bulbs are far more attractive than the 100 Watt equivalent CFL bulbs that I'd initially purchased as replacements for incandescent bulbs.

          Super impressed!
          Bought this as a porch light to see how far LED bulbs have come and to test the brightness, along with testing the theory that soft white doesn't really attract bugs. And I am impressed. The 100w is insanely bright. Brighter than the CFL bulb I had in there. I had tons of bugs flying around the CFL, and almost as soon as I switched to the LED, most of them dispersed. There are a couple tiny bugs flying near it still, but none of the big ones that were surrounding it before. My house currently has nearly all CFL bulbs, but will definitely be switching to these (in various wattages of course) as soon as they go out. The upfront cost is of course more than regular bulbs or even CFLs, but if they have the life span they claim to, I think it'll definitely pay off.

          Purchased this bulb as a spare replacement for one of our 100W incandescents. When I went to put it into use the top or glass portion of the light bulb came off as I screwed it into the socket and I DID NOT use excessive force.
            Don't waste your money.
            Died after about 1 year in non enclosed interior fixture. Waiting to hear back from customer service for warranty
