I bought 4 LED light bulbs from CREE about 1-2 years ago. I paid quite a bit, since LED was still expensive 2 years ago. They have 10 year warranty. Well 2 of my bulbs are out for months now. I am very disappointed and when I took it to HOME Depot, where I bought it from, they said I have to contact CREE company. That really sucks. I have to make a phone call, etc. I will definitely not buy anymore CREE product. dissatisfied with CREE LED light bulbs.

    I've had two CREE bulbs in the past year, two failures. One just quit working, won't light up at all. The second one, the glass cover fell off. No more CREE for me.

      They were good at first but not over the long haul.
      I bought a house a couple years ago and the previous owners stripped it of nearly every light bulb. (They also took the mailbox for crying out loud!) So I decided this was as good a time as any to make the switch to LED. I bought a pack of these Cree "60 watt" soft white bulbs and they seemed great. So I bought another 20 or so to put in every A19 socket around the house. Two bulbs quickly died. One was in a closet and the other was in a room I rarely used. Flipped the switch and nothing. Probably had less than an hour of use between them. Since then, I've had another one die completely (also in a rarely-used fixture) and 6 others have begun to fail. Two flash and flicker. The other four are losing elements in the ring of LEDs. The flickering bulbs and the bulbs losing brightness are all in high-use fixtures. It seems pretty clear that these bulbs won't last anywhere close to the 22.8 years estimated by Cree when a third of mine have failed or degraded noticeably in less than 2 years. I don't see any point in paying a premium price for these bulbs. May as well just buy three times as many cheap bulbs for the same price and swap them out when they fail. Also, the inner coating of the bulb that gives it a "frosted" look becomes less opaque the longer the bulb is in use. The ones that died early still look frosted. The dying bulbs I took out of the fixtures today are nearly clear in places. There's just a slight haze left from the original coating.

      Great option for upgrading a bathroom fan/light from CFL to LED
      We recently installed a bathroom fan/light combo that we purchased at HD that was pre-wired for the CFL style bulbs. We don't particularly care for the CFL light and the fluorescent style flickering that they exhibit. We bought a couple of GU24 to E26/E27 adapters online so we could use LED bulbs instead. Since the Cree bulb only draws 9.5 Watts it is well within the 24 watt maximum specified for the fan/light with two bulbs drawing 19 watts total. Even with the length added by the GU24 adapters, the bulbs were still compact enough to fit comfortably within the domed light fixture. So far so good, and since the bulbs are in a bathroom with very occasional use, we're hoping for many years of service.

      Burnout
      I bought two of these from Home Depot for use in a light fixture that takes two light bulbs. After just one month one of the bulbs burned out which is a shorter life than a regular incandescent bulb. Unacceptable for an expensive lightbulb.

        Impressive appearance & performance
        This particular bulb was deemed a "best buy" in a magazine devoted to rating products. Its outstanding features are that it can be used in an exterior closed fixture and also be used with a photo sensor. We installed the 40watt equivalent LED bulbs throughout our townhouse property and are pleased with the appearance and performance. The promised extended life of this bulb was a huge selling point. Out of 96 bulbs purchased only one was defective and will be returned to the local store for an exchange.

        Switched four dozen bulbs with these.
        We exchanged almost every mismatched, under-performing bulb in our house after testing these. The light is warm, bright and consistent ... feeling like a good old-fashioned incandescent bulb. We are very pleased with the quality of light and forthcoming energy savings.

        Burnt-out after a month.
        Bought three of these for our bathroom. One has burnt-out after one month. It is only on about three hours per day. It's a lot of money to pay for a bulb with such a short life span.

        HIGH FAILURE RATE IS UNACCEPTABLE
        I relamped my home with Cree LED lamps, mostly the 60 watt equivalent. I have one 100 watt equivalent bulb also. I am into Cree for 12 lamps. Out of those 12 lamps tonight I have had my third failure. I am disappointed. I have had one replaced under warranty direct from Cree and they included a second bulb for free since it took so long to replace the one. ( three emails and more than a month ) I have started to look in to other LED lighting to replace the burned out Cree bulbs. I offered to ship them back so they could do quality control on them but they didn't send a box with return postage. Oh well. Good luck.

          Cree Quality
          I've been buying these as my incandescent and/or CFL lamps burn out. The light the 2700k (Soft White) Cree LED produces is very pleasing to the eye. Much better than the CFL. The CFL had a dingy yellowish tint to it. Cree bulbs are closer to the light temperature of incandescent lamps. The warranty is pretty good. If it doesn't last for 10 years of normal use, you can return it with the receipt and they will replace it. Two more features that sold me on this product is it is dimmable and you don't have to wait 20 to 30 seconds for the light to 'warm up'. I've read some reviews where they say this is "Made in the USA." It is "Assembled in the USA." which means it could contain foreign parts. But hey, someone in the US has a job because of it so I will buy more Cree bulbs as I need them. The price on the Cree has dropped significantly. They are priced at what CFL are or used to be. As time goes by I'm sure the price will drop more. Would rate this a 4.5 only because the price is still a little high to buy these in bulk.

          Ummmm Maybe? I don't know...they work... sort of...yeah the light is fine but:
          I've had two issues with two bulbs in two days. I have bought and installed several of these and will now have to search my house to see if there are other problems but for now I'll just talk about the two. 1st one had the globe pop off. The hot glue they use dries up and the globe dropped next to my wife as she went by the fixture. I called Cree. Series 1 bulbs had a problem with the glue. HD has gone through all the Series 1s and now on Series 2...Cree said Home Depot has a 90 day replacement yada yada they'll handle it. Without a receipt? Yes...they'll handle it. Went in and they asked for the receipt. Didn't have it. They made the exception and replaced the bulb. Took it home. 2nd one has a circular crack all around the globe 1/4 inch above the glue line. The globe didn't break because there is a plastic/rubber type coating on the bulb. It keeps it in one piece. Called Cree. This time CREE is replacing the bulb, next day... Not sure what to say. The light off the bulb is fine. The price is ok, about $10 when I bought it. The actual quality control is down there with the worst I've seen. They seem to have not figured out the 'globe' concept.

            awesome!
            30% cheaper than you can get them on amazon (as of 7/1/2014)! Bought 4 of these two weeks ago and placed them into my most used light fixtures. Work great , stay cool even in 78f ambient temp after being turned on for 12 hours. Maybe my vision isn't the best for a 29 year old guy, but two of these seem to work better than 4x 100w incandescent bulbs in my above-mirror lights (put the two in the bathroom just for testing). Once again, this is a longevity play - hopefully these will last as long as advertised. Another great thing about these - reach 100% full light power immediately, vs CFLs bulbs, which make take a few seconds to get to full light. Would definitely recommend these - the price is right, and the light is nice and 'warm' - none of that mechanical white you see in the hospitals.

            the way of the future
            Longer term investment but worth it as not only consumes way under energy but it provides immediate great lighting on clicking the switch. All these new products have yet to undergo the durability tests.

            finally LED's right for our needs
            Our son recommended these. He's had them a while and all are doing well. The appearance of the bulb is fantastic. It looks much like the old incadescent bulbs. The color is good and the light radiates smoothly in all directions. We are extremely pleased and are changing over all our CFL bulbs for LED bulbs. We also got 60watt equivalent bulbs for bathrooms and bedrooms. The 40watt bulbs are in a chandelier in the dining room... more than enough light.

            Just Get These!
            The CREE leds are the best replacement for incandescent bulbs, and toxic compact fluorescents too. Here in NC. the power company subsidizes the bulb cost making them affordable. I have purchased them a few at a time to spread out the cost, and now almost all the lamps in our home have CREE leds, including the recessed fixtures. The color is soft and even, radiating from the sides of the incandescent shaped bulb, making them indistinguishable from incandescents or halogen even. Only the little white metal heat sink above the threaded base becomes warm during use, saving on air conditioning, the bulb remains cool. i use the 40W equiv leds in lamps that have multiple sockets, they are plenty bright. The label says these can be used in enclosed fixtures as well. The CREE leds are now available in 75W, and 100W equivalents, as well as the 60W and Par30 units previously available, so there is a perfect replacement for any situation. Outdoors, they light instantly, whether cold or hot, and worked great this winter when it was zero, the compact fluorescents would not even glow at that temp. We have many antique tiffany lamps and antique sconces/ pendants, and the CREE leds look like a real light bulb, not a weird curly thing, when they are exposed. They do dim OK, but the color is different, somewhat cooler as it dims-not warmer like incandescents. It woks best to turn them on bright and then dim, rather than the other way around, as they need a certain amout of voltage for the electronics to light. there is a very slight hum or ring when these operate, especially when dimmed, I can barely hear it, but some may be sensitive, so give one a try first if you think that might be an issue.

              Not a Fluorescent!
              I could never get used to the fluorescent bulbs. When I turnon a light, I want to know it want on, unlike fluorescent bulbs. In my county, there is an instant rebate built into the price of this bulb making it under $5/each. Excellent value compared to the past and other current LED bulbs. I have read technical reviews of this brand and have settled on this one exclusively. I like the light it sheds and that it stays relatively cool too. Replaced five in a vanity light in the master bath where my wife complained the incandescent bulbs made the room too hot. No more heat issues. I think they are actually brighter than the equivalent bulbs were. Maybe they are just whiter, not sure. Excellent value.

              Great LED, very bright
              I put three of these in my ceiling fan in the bedroom and it was literally like the sun. It was TOO bright. So I went back to 2 CFLs and one LED and it works well. Put acouple outside too, instead of CFLs which are weak in the cold. Instant on LEDs are fantastic and save on the electric bill. The price was amazing too! 800 Lumens is very bright

              They're Not Right
              The bulbs aren't as bright as the other brands I've purchased. There is a black spot right on the top of the lit bulb which I'm sure has something to do with the quality and amount of light output. Calling them dimmable is a stretch. They are either full-on, halfway bright or completely off except if you find the setting that makes them flicker. I've also noticed that one of them has started to come apart near the base and appears to be oozing something from within. Maybe that sticky stuff that covers the bulb?

              works great in ceiling fan with my fan's dimmer
              Been converting lights to LED for a couple of years. The ceiling fan is the last of my incandescent lights. Earlier 'dimmable' bulbs did not work with my dimmer. These work fine. Color is nice too. Not to warm, not to white. Easy to read with.

                Great product...great service!
                I'm just starting my transition into LED bulbs. This was my first purchase of them. I've read different reviews on all different websites. I decided to go with Cree, as it seems they are the leader in this technology, they are made in USA, the reviews are great, and the price was reasonable. This purchase was for the 6 watt (40 watt equivalent) Cree LED Soft White light bulb. I bought the set of six right away, and had no problem finding a place for each one. I placed my order Tuesday 3/11 and received them on 3/14...very pleased with the shipping time, and they arrived in great condition. I am very pleased with the light quality of the bulb. I have put them in everything from ceiling fixtures to desk and floor lamps. The brightness is the same or better than the incandescent or CFL's I replaced, and the color seems even warmer. I have attached a couple photos as comparison. It's too early to comment on the longevity of the bulb or the energy savings. I look at it this way...I would rather give my money to the American manufacturing company, than to our state's energy monopoly. If possible, I will give an update when I know more, but I am very pleased so far.

                excellent product on sale
                wonderful natural color, bright. Although regular pricing on the product is high, it is not out of sight because of newer technology, long life, dimmability and reported utility bill savings. Will have to save receipt for 20 years. was on sale at only one store, not the closest one to me, but the drive was more than offset by the additional savings

                Pretty good, for certain applications
                A good bulb, for a good price. I don't prefer the "ring" of LEDs inside the globe, much preferring a more uniform light distribution, so it's really a matter of preference. I don't recommend these for ceiling light fixtures, since you'll be looking up into this odd dark spot in the middle of the light. However, it's perfect for lamps, or other situations where the bulb is "upright", as opposed to "upside-down", as in on the ceiling, or for enclosed fixtures, where you won't see the dark center.

                  excellent light and color, low power use
                  The Cree LED warm white 60W replacement bulbs only use 9.5W, and the light output and color is excellent. The bulbs are bright immediately after turning on the switch. They are by far my favorite light bulbs yet. The bulbs are installed in a ceiling fan that is about 20ft off the ground. The long life of these bulbs is a definite plus. (The photo doesn't do these bulbs justice. The light output is equal to or greater than the 60W incandescent bulbs they replaced.)

                    Cree LED Lightbulbs- Very happy!
                    We've been using the "curly" florescent bulbs but they are not lasting near as long as they are supposed to last, especially on lights we turn off and on a lot, so we tried a Cree LED (soft white). I was very surprised to discover in the living room the Cree "60W" had the same look/brightness as a "curly" "100W"! Now since my wife doesn't like the "curly" look, I'm now trying Cree "40W"s in the ceiling fan. This light gets turned off and on the most in our house and I think the vibrating fan shortens the life of regular fan bulbs. We'll see. The cost of the LEDs is a lot more, but if they last as long as they are supposed to last they will be worth it since they are certainly better for the environment and easier to dispose.

                    LED Lighting
                    I was a bit sceptical of this bulb due to it's exceptionally reasonable price. I purchased 4 to try them out. One in a dimmable floor lamp for reading, one in the outdoor lampost, and two in reading lamps in my home. I am very pleased with the performance and quality of the product. Highly Recommend.
