Rated 5 out of 5 by MBarnhurst Amazing!
This bulb is amazing! It looks like a regular incandescent bulb not a quirky shape like many of the other LEDs, the light shines in all directions, and provides a very white light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dw666 Bedside Lamp--without the headaches
This light is far better than the CFL's. The color temperature is perfect if you wake early, doing far better at imitating daylight than most CFL's. Also, if you are sensitive to dirty electricity, you will miss out on the headache and insomnia you may have been getting with CFL's or the excessive heat given off by incandescents.
And yes, the bulb will save you electricity. You will use about 5 fewer watts at the bulb than CFL's and another 5 at the air conditioner (plus not set up disturbances on the power grid and your other appliances as with CFL's). And no interference if you still listen to the radio--these bulbs are clean. You can have your radio on, listen to the AM news, and still have your light. Try THAT with those CFL's. I wouldn't even bother wasting the money on CFL bulbs if you still have incandescent--try these.
Best use: Lamps with a lampshade. If you are using them in a fixture on the ceiling or a task lamp, I recommend getting a LED bulb that is directional instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Simon Not as bright as other high power LEDs and quality questionable.
I purchased 20 of these LED bulbs and within a month 3 had problem (after keeping them on for about 2 hrs, they started "off and on" every 10-20 minutes or so.) These bulbs don't seem to be equivalent to 60 Watt incandescent bulbs. looks more like 45 Watt max. Color looks white but not bright, so looks really dim just like low wattage CFL bulbs. It also seems to produce a lot of heat as an LED bulb probably because it does not have any heat sink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FantasyChamp2011 Impressive LED Lamp looks just like an Incandescent Bulb!
When it comes to LED lighting, there are all sorts of products on the market today. This bulb, the Shine 360, is the closest to a traditional incandescent light bulb that I've personally seen. It weights less than other LED lamps, putting less strain on horizontal sockets, projects light in a true 360 degree beam angle, and the "lens" portion of the lamp remains cool to the touch while lit. At 5000K color temperature, this bulb puts off a cooler white light than a typical 2700K incandescent. It is ideal for bathroom vanity lighting, as it gives you a "daylight" quality of light. It also features an acrylic envelope, which means that if you drop the bulb... glass wont shatter all over the place! These are also available in 3000K color temperature, which is a bit closer to typical frosted incandescent light bulbs.
