Rated 5 out of 5 by Bud82 LEDs finally come of age...
After unsuccessfully trying countless PAR30 CFLs for a family room with dimmers, Toshiba comes out with a bright enough, natural white enough LED. These are GREAT in our family room- terrific light temperature, plenty bright at full power, almost instantaneous startup, dimmable, and very low power consumption. Don't wait any further, these rock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JayZ Good, but shows LED just not there yet
I have probably 50+ recessed lights, and have been reading that LED is now warm light, etc. So I tried this bulb as potential replacement for all as my regular bulbs burn out. But I noticed a few things. Quality of light. Maybe it is better than LED used to be, just I still find it overly white, not the golden glow of the regular halogen that I usually use. Dimming problems. Yes, it dims, but not at the same level as the other bulbs. It is MUCH brighter. Hesitation at start up. Not a deal killer, but I notice it.
So, if you are thinking about going LED from halogen, my advice is to wait. They are good, but not great yet.
