I've bought LED lights before that were too white for practical home use.
These lamps are the exact color of what we generally use in the house.
They also turn on instantly.........no difference between them and existing lights.
I decided to replace all the lights in my kitchen (16#. Cost a bunch of money...........but am very pleased with the results.
When I replaced all the lights I could tell that it was a touch brighter than with the old lights #20 more lumens per lamp).
Wife like it. I may wait for price to come down just a bit, before doing the basement our our master bath.

by WGFinley Incandescent Performance at LED Price
I used these in my home theater area with some recessed cans. The prior owner had some CFL and incan R40s with rings, I went to these with pinholes in the middle and specular reflectors on the ends. Wow, what a difference.
These dim to just about zero with no loss of performance on a standard dimmer. There is virtually no wait and when on they are at full brightness. It's impossible to discern the LEDs, and they give off virtually no heat.
I particularly like them with the specular black reflectors - they throw a nice amount of light and look to be floating in the housing. The 2700 temp and CRI really show with the CFLs now gone.
These are fantastic performers that I'll gradually replace those R40s around the house with as budget allows. Hopefully the prices keep falling so I don't have to buy any CFLs in the meantime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stingy Looks like old school, but brighter
Fits the fixture beautifully, and looks exactly like the old 65W indoor floods it replaces. the 2700 Kelvin color is perfect, a clean white light. The only "complaint" if you can call it that, is that this bulb at only 11 watts, is a bit brighter than the 65 watt old lamps I have been using.
I bought just one as a test before converting all the other 65 watt recessed lights in our home. Based on this test, I'll be going ahead with the conversion. Most of our circuits have dimmers already, so we can deal with the perceived brightness and even further reduce the wattage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RangerFrank Excellent Light Output, Almost Perfect Color
This product has excellent light output easily lighting up a dark room. It functions with dimmers, which is a plus. I wish that the color was a little bit warmer, but this is one of the best LED's that I have seen. It nearly replicates an incandescent bulb. I also wish that when using a dimmer the lights actually dimmed slightly more. When using the dimmer I estimate the go down to about 45% light output at the lowest level. I wish it would go lower, maybe to 20% or even 15%. It could also be the dimmer I am using. But other than that it dims smoothly with uninterrupted movement across light output levels. There is never any flickering. I really like this bulb and would highly recommend it to others.
