The LED PAR38 uses 20-Watt and produces 2100 Lumens of bright white illumination. It is an ideal equivalent for replacing a 250-Watt incandescent bulb. Its medium sized base fits any standard fixture easily and its color temperature of 5000K makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor usage. Its long-rated life 25,000 hours reduces need for replacement and other maintenance costs.

2 bulbs arrived with a moving center button in base. I did not notice. When I turned on the light switch, the circuit breaker tripped. Later, I unscrewed the bulb and found that the center button had shifted and was contacting the metal rim (base with the threads).

Great light - TERRIBLE PACKAGING!!!!!!!!
Purchased a number of these bulbs, when I pulled one of them out of the bag, the package was upside down and the one pound light pushed open the top which was not sealed other that a standard fold top. The light fell out of the box onto the floor and burst into pieces. The package is poorly designed and executed for a light this heavy and this expensive. The top needs to be glued or secured more effectively - terrible job by Philips.

I really wanted to use this bulb
This bulb won't work for me, at least where I really need it to. I bought this bulb and a bulb and an 11' bulb changer kit for the flood light over my parking area, but it didn't work. I tried it in several floodlight sockets, and it didn't work in any of them. So, I tried it in the vanity light bar in my guest bathroom, and it worked. It was really, really bright, too. It would have been perfect for what I purchased it for.
On closer examination, it appears the the base is shorter than all my other floodlight bulbs, so I can't screw it in far enough to make an electrical connection.

I've tried several different LED flood lights now, and one thing I've noticed about most of them is they are more spotlight then flood light. These bulbs are no different, definitely more directional than the typical flood light you are used to. Tried one in an interior recessed fixture first for test purposes, and immediately noticed the spotlight, directional effect of it. I then put a couple outside on a pole mounted fixture (see pics). I’d have to say I noticed the same effect. I do love the fact that you get a 250w equivalent bulb and use only 20 watts...how great is that? I do wish they spread the light out a little bit more, tho’...

I really like this bulb. The Philips bulb produces 250 watts, only uses 20 watts. It's very bright when you need it 5000k (Kelvin), 2100 Lumens, but is also a dimmable LED. Because of it's long life span, approx. 25,000 hours, this is the kind of bulb you put in a place where you don't want to have to worry about changing often. It also a par38, which means it fits a standard base. At 3 hours a day usage it only costs $2.41 a year to run. Check out the pics, ceiling bulbs 2-60 watt and the one 250 watt shining down hall just to show how bright it is.

The Philips 250-Watt Equivalent PAR38 Dimmable High Lumen LED Flood Light Bulb Bright White (5000K) is a great addition to our back deck lighting. A while ago I had upgraded to the 120-Watt LED bulbs which sometimes was lacking in providing enough light at the grill at night. With the new light, which has more than twice the illumination as the old, now we have enough light so that we can see to grill after the sun goes down. Kudos to you Philips, good job, we love it.
Living in the Semi-Country of Cajun Land at night we can hear animals moving about the area. With two kids that can wake up at night and then hear rustling sounds outside is sometimes a jump under the covers time. I noticed that our neighbor living 500 feet or more from us has strong white flood lights on the corners of his home. So I decided to investigate into brighter lighting than the old yellow 125 watts on out house. Finding the Philips 20 Watt bright white [5000K] that gave the equivalent light as a 250 Watt flood, who could resist getting brighter lighting. See the attached photo. Now the kids sleep better and so do we. I hope this helps you.

The Philips Brand, 250-Watt Equivalent PAR38 Dimmable 2,100 Lumen LED Flood Light Bulb Bright White (5000K) produces a dazzling bright light at a very affordable cost both to purchase and to power. One feature of this Philips bulb I like is that it is completely sealed. There are no cooling vents some other bulbs have that can allow insects to set up residence and block air flow. When comparing the Phillips lamp to similar high lumen LED bulbs, the light color and light brightness is very similar. The most noticeable difference to me was that the Philips bulb produced a better flood light pattern. Night illumination to 100 feet and greater is very good. In fact, this bulb is so bright that caution should employed so that it doesn’t blind drivers. Even at 250-feet and greater, when looking into this bulb it exceeds the brightness of most automotive headlamps.
