Excellent replacements for the family room. They do cost more than all the others, but you are paying for that 10 year warranty. Make no mistake, they will send you new bulbs (even new generations of bulbs) if yours ever fail. Unfortunately, I have experienced a lot of failures over the years, but Cree has always sent new bulbs and new generations of them. All I have to do is take the time to submit a warranty claim on their website, which could be annoying to some people, but not me...I paid one time for bulbs that I don't have to ever pay for again! The reliability has definitely improved over the years. The bulbs don't heat up as much, they don't hum as much, and they definitely last a lot longer than they used to years ago with the first generation LEDs. They improved the look of the bulb, but also the quality of the light from the LEDs! I think they are up to the sixth generation now, and they have made significant improvements along the way! I'm always impressed with the brightness, you'll never go back to incandescent when you install these! Buy them and find out why, but make sure if you ever use a dimmer, install a high quality one that is made for LEDs or you will just have problems (the old dimmers only work with incandescent bulbs, they have to be replaced when you upgrade to LEDs).
