Questions & Answers



Asked by RIZALDY August 22, 2018

It totally turns off.

Why does this bulb go out periodically?

Asked by lJt2764 July 18, 2016

Cree bulbs are poorly made. 5 of the six I purchased have died within 2.5 years. 10 year warranty? Over priced junk.

Are these dimmable bulbs compatable with the older dimmer switches or does my switches have to be changed out also. I have 6 or 7 dimmers in my house

Asked by Bob June 2, 2016

You will need the new style dimmers that are compatible with LED bulbs.

Does this 3 way led bulb work with a timer?

Asked by Steve April 16, 2016

yes, they're no different than any other bulb.

Can you use a dimmer with this bulb and not flicker?

Asked by ArleneC March 6, 2016

Yes, this bulb is made to dim without flickering.

Is the color spectrum on this bulb in the mid range of color for pure white light?

Asked by Klamb March 4, 2016

The accompanying Cree specifications state that this bulb has a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of greater than 80 out of 100. Accurate color is important to me for my art room.

Can you use this bulb in a dimable light fan combo?

Asked by Venice March 4, 2016

I would not use this bulb in any location. It is far to expensive for a bulb that does not last even a year

Where are these made? China?

Asked by jschwarz49 December 20, 2015

the package says "assembled in USA". NO mention of where the parts come from.

What is the in put voltage? 120/277V?

Asked by mark November 15, 2015

Standard (USA) 120vac input voltage

Do you have 3 way LED bulbs available in daylight?

Asked by Shine November 9, 2015

Yes, I bought one on my last visit and it works great!

I bought this light bulb for my office floor lamp in August 2014 - lasted about 2 years before it failed. With the 10 year warranty I'll be going to Home Depot to see if they will exchange or replace today. I like the 3 way soft light and the energy efficiency. For $21 it has got to last 10 years to recognize the value. Here's hoping Cree has resolved the fail issue.

I bought this bulb less than a year ago, and now it lost most of it's light and it flickers. It says not to use it in an enclosed fixture, and I did, and it worked fine, but now it is really dim and flickers, even when in a non-enclosed fixture.

Lasted under 1 year
Bought 6 of these for our new home when we bought it last April. One burned out already, another flickers at random. That is a failure rate of 33%. Buy something else.

No More Cree For Me
Purchased several of these and after the first round of burnouts, I took them back to Home Depot who allowed me to exchange them there since they had only lasted a couple of weeks. After a couple more months these started flickering and burned out. PIcture shows only half the LED's lighting up before burning out. Cree offers a 10 yr warranty, but too many stipulations to make it worthwhile paying to send back. I ended up buying another brand of LED lights at a fraction of the cost and haven't had any issues. I will be staying away from the Cree products from now on.

Great Light but wish they had high CRI version
Using in single bulb ceiling lights, ceiling fan fixtures, and in standing torche lamps. Great light tone, easy on eyes. Can be a postitive or negetive depending on use light spreads perpendicular 360 with led inside shaded coated glass cover limiting light spread to top and bottom of bulb. Unfortionately appears Cree has discontinued much of their TW (True White) line, this bulb has a CRI of 80, their older 40 and 60 equivelents use to be available in TW also with a CRI of 93. Come on Cree ad a high watt equiv high CRI to your line up. NOTE: I do not recomend the 3-Way version of this 100 watt equiv, lasted 2 months, the Cree bulb failure I have had.

It fits!
The size of this 3-way bulb is such that it fits into the harp of our lamp just like the incandescent bulb it replaces. The 3-way CFL bulbs that are available are too big to fit. A little pricey at $19.98 but worth it if it lasts a long time.

Great Purchase
The bulb puts off excellent light and does not get hot. It looks like a standard bulb so no more ugly light-bulbs. I love to read and this bulb gives me great light. Will Buy more :)

Put out significant amount of light
This 100W light bulb puts out significant amount of light. I use it in my ceiling fan that has remote control with dimmer.

LED Light blubs are enviromentally friendly and work well
While the LED light blubs are expensive they seem to be as good as the old fashion light blubs and are better for the environment. I only received my order about 2 weeks ago so I can't comment on longevity of the blub. I would purchase this product again and recommend it to others.

Fantastic Bulb
If you need real white powerful light that will probably last forever these are for you. Are they worth Twice the price of the 60 watt Cree maybe. If you can get by with the 60 save the 10 bucks.
