The light was a little bigger than I expected, so it doesn't fit in all locations that a 60 watt old style bulb fits into. The picture I added shows it against a normal sized bulb.
The light it gives off is just right for a living room and dims without noise. The soft color makes it non glaring even at full power. Wish it was the old 3 position style, but the dimming is fine.
This is a great bulb if you need an LED light bulb that is super bright. It is also nice that the light bulb is soft white. I also have the same light bulb in bright white too. As you can see from the pictures the difference between the bright white bulb and this one in warm light is pretty stark. One note is that these light bulbs are a bit bigger than 40-100 watt bulbs so they won’t be good if you need to fit them in tight spots.
My three car garage has two porcelain lamp holders on the ceiling. Both had PAR 30 bulbs in them. One, a compact fluorescent and one a halogen. They did little to light up the garage. And, both had a "warm up" time delay when turned on. Especially in colder weather.
Not being one to waste, I suffered through them until the halogen finally burnt out. I replaced it with this super output, Philips LED equivalent, which has proved to be the perfect replacement.....as long as it's lasts for a couple of years. I've had several of the more expensive Phillips high output LED PAR 40 bulbs in the track lighting in my kitchen for more than six years with no problems and only one failure.
It's instant on; works with my occupancy sensor/switch; comes in warm white. And, at 2610 lumens, it's much brighter than the old PAR 30 Halogen it replaced. Enough so, that I'm going to acquire a second one (my store is out and I'll have to order) and replace the slow to warm up compact fluorescent in the other light socket, even though it hasn't burnt out yet.
I'm quite pleased with this Phillips bulb.
Pros: Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Great Dimming, Motion-Activated, Nice Design
This bulb has to be one of the best LED bulbs I've used. It lives up to it's 150-watt equivalent rating and casts a nice even diffused light. The color temperature is perfect. It doesn't have that extreme white or bluish tint you get with many other LED bulbs, it has a pleasing warm color you'd be accustomed to from an incandescent.
The bulb is about twice the diameter of your typical bulb but screws into a normal socket. Other LED's I've used have a tendency to get quite hot, this one gets warm but not so hot that you can't touch it after it's been on for a while. It's also dimmable, I was able to turn down my dimmer without getting any flicker at all.
The warranty is good too, it's 3 years and the bulb lifetime is 13 or more years so you should see significant energy savings over it's life.
I'd definitely recommend this 150-watt for places where you need plenty of light.
Pros: Clear Instructions, Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Nice Design, Very Bright
The 150 watt dimmable bulb is a great design. It has a standard medium light bulb base that works with the majority of light fixtures that may have come with standard incandescent bulbs. The warming color when dimmed is a nice feature, giving off slightly more yellow tones when dimmed and brighter white/bluish light when at full brightness. At 2610 lumens at full tilt gives off a lot of light, while using less than 20% of the electricity of a standard incandescent bulb, an 80% energy savings! While the base of the bulb is standard size, the bulb is larger than typical lower wattage lights.

Excellent product. We use these in our living room table...

Excellent product. We use these in our living room table lamps adjacent to our reading chairs & they give us an excellent amount of light to read. We are both in or 70's, so need a lot of light to be comfortable reading. The warm 2700Kelvin temperature of the light is a must for th evening & the residential setting. We do not have these table lamps on a dimmer, so have not tried out the warm glow dimming. To do that we would purchase a Lutron Credenza dimmer switch the the lamp plugs into & then the Credena plugs into the wall receptacle. We haven't done that yet with there are other lights in the room we can use for a lower light level TV viewing.
