Rated 5 out of 5 by Shkbilly Perfect Replacement
I had a problem with all my R20 incandescent bulbs burning out every 2 months due to the heat they give off in my recessed fixtures in the basement. These LEDs so far are amazing. They look just like an incandescent in color and overall appearance, they don't give off much heat at all, and aren't too expensive. They also dim perfectly. As long as they last even half of what they ate expected to I'll be one happy camper. The CFLs I tried didn't dim for anything and burned out after 2 days.

These bulbs are great, especially for the cost. There is no warm-up period like CFL's. They are also brighter than the CFL's they replaced. Only complaint is that they are much shorter. As a result, they are 3" deeper into the recessed lighting can. Don't let that stop you though, I would definitely recommend buying. I plan on buying more as soon as there is a sale or I get a coupon code. Unfortunately, it seems as if they always exclude LED bulbs from sales and specials.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BKGadgetFreak This is four stars at $8 a bulb, but there are better at $15-20
So I basically got LED bulb obsessed and bought a ton of these for my downlight cans all over my house. I compared it with a few other brands and found the hue to be good at the lower end of the price range for R20 bulbs. Then I bought a couple TCP R20 bulbs at $18 a piece for my home office, and they were vastly superior. So, at the $8 I paid, it's a decent bulb, but if you want a truly dimmable bulb that looks more like incandescent or halogen, there are better bulbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KennyB Awesome Lights, Unbelieveable Price!
These lights were used to replace the R20 45 watt mini floods in 4" cans in my eat-in kitchen ceiling. The incandescent floods would last less than a year before they burned out, so I was thinking of buying a retrofit led system at $30 per light but these solved my problem for less than 10 bucks a bulb (shipping included)!They actually put out more light than the 45 watters and work well with the dimmer switch that's on the circuit. Awesome Deal! I'm glad I ran across 1000bulbs.com... I'm going to replace all my lights with Long lasting LEDs wherever I can!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skates Very nice product.
If anything, 8 W LED's are slightly brighter than the R20 45W halogen bulbs they replaced. No start-up delay. Better value now since the price dropped after my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cocotazo Looks Great!
Versus the 50 watt hogs these are an awesome alternative! Already seeing a difference in my utility bill and light output has not changed.
For the price you really can’t go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jhens Great choice for the $$$$
I just purchased 30 of these R20 Kobi 2700k led's to convert my Houseboat over to save energy. I have a inverter system on my houseboat to run everything at nite so we don't have to run the generator when we are off the dock. It has a control panel that shows me amps in out etc. I replaced 25 45 watt incandescent r20 bulbs with these led's and what a difference in power consumption. My battery's before would run all the lights,tv's,fridge etc 8 to 9 hours now with the led,s installed it will last over 30hrs it was pulling 145a before now it pulls 29a with all the lights on after they warm up. I can't believe I waited this long, My house is next. The color is also great it's a little cleaner look than the 45w r20 incandescent's. great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fish exactly as described
I switched from CFL's to these LED lights in the kitchen/dining room where I have 12 recessed lights. These are definitely dimmable, and goes down almost to zero. It starts out immediately, and then dims a little (opposite of CFL), but not by much. What I like about these are that they are almost affordable, and the color temperature is pleasant, and not harsh white.
Highly recommend them.
