5 out of 5 eggsBrighter than I expected

Pros: It's actually really bright. And cheap (over time)

Got it on sale for like 5 bucks. Keep that in mind when you're buying this.

Cons: Nada so far

Other Thoughts: The metal base gets a bit hot, but so do all light bulbs.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat bulb!

Pros: instant on, low power consumption, long life, plenty of light output and looks good!

Cons: none i can think of.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 6 of these to get a discount of a dollar on each at the time which was nice. These 40W equivalent bulbs as mentioned can definitely do the job of a regular 60W bulb. Also at 6W's these seem to use a little bit less power then other 40W equivalents out there. Buy with confidence.

5 out of 5 eggsAs near an incandescent as you'll find

Pros: Near instant on, zero warm-up period, and close enough to color and lumens that you need to put them side by side incandescent bulbs to tell the difference.

Cons: Still really expensive compared to regular bulbs. As a renter, I don't want to invest a couple hundred dollars in bulbs for the house over the next year or two for the 25 year benefit of the property owner.

Other Thoughts: I put two into a four-bulb bathroom vanity fixture that obscures the bulbs for direct comparison. These light up after the incandescent pair after a slight (1/10 second?) delay. It's just long enough to notice when installed alongside regular incandescent bulbs, but not nearly long enough to make you flip the switch a second time. They seem slightly cooler (maybe 100K), and slightly brighter (less than 10%, so not even 45W equivalent) when compared head to head. After a couple days, I stopped noticing.

The long lifespan of these bulbs assumes the electronics are not burned out by a power surge from lightning strikes or dirty power.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Better than expected.

Cons: Be sure that the tab in the fixture socket is not depressed. May cause buzzing sound, might be from micro-arcing.

Other Thoughts: Old fixtures may have depressed connectors from screwing in bulbs too tightly/far in. Be wary of that if there's an issue.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic LED Bulbs!

Pros: Great bulbs! They are brighter than I anticipated. Virtually the same size as a regular one. Upon receipt, I accidentally dropped one while taking it out of the box and it just bounced. :-) Needless to say it was the first one I tried and it lit right up! If you're thinking about making the switch, try these. There is no "warm up" phase either; they're bright right from the start.

Cons: None for now.

Other Thoughts: The only reason I didn't give these 5 eggs is because I've only had them about a month and from some of the things I've heard, these types of bulbs sometimes quit working after a short period. If this happens to me, I'll update this post.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Investment I ever made

Pros: - Bright - closer to the rated lumens equivalents than CFL's
- 20+ year lifespan
- Looks like a regular light bulb
- Runs cool

Cons: Cost - but as CFL's go up and these continue to come down, the premium is finally worth the investment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bulb

Pros: High light output, low price, warm light, 270 degree beam pattern

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Some other bulbs have 120-180 degree beam spread. These have 270 degree beam spread. Some advertise warm light at 2700K, but are actually whiter. These really do look 2700K warm, like the incandescent bulbs they replace. Because the light is output in a 270 degree pattern instead of the normal 360 degrees that a normal incandescent bulb provides, they are brighter in the 270 degree area they are lighting. So, you will probably find them brighter than normal 40 watt bulbs. In fact, I'm replacing many 60 watt incandescent bulbs with these 40 watt equivalents because 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs are way too bright.

If these are to replace bulbs in directional desk lamps (like the animated Pixar lamp jumping around in the beginning of Pixar Movies), these will be wasteful. Buy some that have a 120 degree beam pattern so they focus all the light forward for these lamps.

These are great bulbs for fixtures that aim the bulbs UP. Because the beam spread is 270 degrees, they aim 45 degrees downward (45 degrees on two sides equals 90 degrees downward plus the 180 aiming upward reflecting off the ceiling totals 270 degrees).

These are also great bulbs for fixtures that aim the light downward, but have a glass bell around them. The light that aims upward still gives the warm glow through the glass bell and gives great ambiance that is lost with other bulbs that have a 120 or lessened with a 180 degree beam spread.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat light

Pros: Great light for my dining room (four "40" watts in a ceiling fan).

Replaced 160 watts worth of electric with 24 and have a cleaner looking light.

Runs several times cooler than incandescent bulb (able to remove a barely warm bulb after several hours of use vs burning your fingers to remove one that was on for an hour).

Cons: None now that the price has come down.

Other Thoughts: It does run a little warmer (5 degrees maybe) than my other LED 40 watt equivalent, however, I am unable to find anything from that company (bought one as a trial then the company vanished...). I do feel that the angle of the light is greater thus covering a higher portion of the room, so it is a good trade off.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd batch as good as the 1st

Pros: These bulbs are shaped just like a standard A19 bulb and they provide even (Omni-directional - like a standard bulb), warm light.

Cons: These are not dimmable.

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd batch of these LED bulbs - they're every bit as good as the first. In fact, these are so good, in a side by side comparison in a pair of lamps, the other half thought the standard incandescent bulb WAS the LED bulb.
