Have not used this type of bulb before now. It is bright and, thank heaven, it does not look like a coil. One problem is, they cannot be used in an enclosed fixture such as a ceiling fixture with a tight fitting globe. More is the pity.

cannot use in all lighting fixtures
Wonderful light quality & color, great price, will be buying more.

I purchased four to populate a ceiling fan in my living room. The light quality is great, the color is extremely close to incandescent. I did not experience the buzzing that others have noted, except when I dimmed them down to nearly nothing. This fan controller (harbor breeze with remote) allows you to dim down to near zero light, where the decorative incandescent bulbs that used to be in the fixture would ring. This is not nearly where I plan on running them though, so no worries for me or anyone who doesn't care about the most dim of mood lighting.

buzz at very low dim
Wanted to upgrade the lighting in my family room to LED. I purchased (2) SlimStyle bulbs for the table lamps. Really impressed. The design is certainly unique, but the "flat" bulb delivers a great light quality. Nice warm color. It gives light all around and fills the lamp shade completely. No noise at all. Just opened the package and it worked. At this price, will certainly purchase more.
I have this light bulb at my desk at work. It is great. I have a small lamp shade over it and there is no dark spot from the seam on the side, contrary to the experience of the cNet reviewer (good article). People have been coming by my desk to check it out and they all love it. This product is great and when you consider the price it is an amazing value. I hope my utility offers rebates soon. I did the math and having it on for 9 hours a day on work days this bulb will save me $11.00 a year.

Truly instant on, no noise that my 46-year-old ears can detect, decent coverage pattern -- seems pretty similar to a conventional light bulb -- and a moderately warm white light. If they last a few years and are as efficient as advertised, they'll represent a really great deal at the discount price that HD has been offering in-store.
Nice bonus -- these seem sturdy and unlikely to shatter. We had the old spiral fluorescent lights in our basement until I dinged one while putting a way an aluminum stepladder and had the bulb burst and send glass and (presumably) mercury dust everywhere. Trying to get it cleaned up safely was a nightmare. Very happy to now have these LEDs in place.
These LED's are a good replacement for 60-75W bulbs. The light is bright and warm, without any harsh glare. The energy use is close to the specs, thus far, they don't get more than warm, but I'll have to wait quite a while to see if the life-span rating is close.
Good purchase, will buy more.

This has been the most useful and adaptable LED bulb I have ever purchased.
The warm yellow light is appropriate for virtually every room in my home.
The bright light that this slim bulb casts, exceeds my other, more expensive bulbs, by far.
The design of the bulb has allowed me to put a much brighter light source in hard to fit fixtures like shallow ceiling fan fixtures.

The quality of the light produced is very good. The only question is how long will the bulb last. The longevity of LED bulbs very much depends on the temperature at which they are operating. These
bulbs are much more temperature sensitive than fluorescent bulbs or the old style incandescent bulbs.
For that reason it is not advisable to operate these bulbs in closed ceiling lamps. I have changed the
ceiling lamps to open screen lamps in order to improve air circulation so the bulbs run at the lowest
possible temperature. Overall, this is an excellent product. Future will tell whether the bulb will last as
long as promised. The good news is that there is no mercury inside the bulb. The bulbs are also
shatter proof since they do not contain any glass.
