Rated 4 out of 5 by OtherHorses Ultra-Bright Blue-White
At 490 lumens (ignore the website misprint), this was the brightest chandelier bulb I could find -- and sure enough, it blazes like a little blue-white star. Great light distribution (best I've seen on an LED bulb), and the all-white exterior looks good whether the bulb is on or off -- suitable for use in exposed fixtures.
Used alone, these bulbs are much too blue for most "living spaces", but adding one or two (even much dimmer) warm light sources changes the room's color dramatically -- no more blue!
I only rated it 4/5 because it doesn't tolerate flaky wiring as well as I expected. Unlike the other LED bulbs here, it sometimes flickers -- but that's on ancient wiring that eats incandescents and makes CFLs flicker constantly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarkFromHouston Looks and works like a regular bulb
I purchased this bulb because I might as well be as efficient as possible when ever I'm replacing something that stopped working. This bulb is a direct replacement and worked great. My only challenge is that I want this slightly more expensive bulb to last a long time. It didn't last long.
I used these bulbs to replace incandescent bulbs in a ceiling fan that had burned out.
Sadly, a month later, I see they are out and need replacing. A second fan with the same bulbs seems to be OK, I can't imagine what happened since the fans are identical. One does get more use than the other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by white45 The bulbs have good crisp light.
I installed these in my son's room on his ceiling fan light fixture. With only 4 bulbs I was worried that they would not be bright enough, but boy were they!

I bought these for the ceiling fans in the kitchen and living room. Drastically improved lighting in these areas, especially in kitchen supplementing existing lighting to improve light output on counter areas. Opacity of shades on fans was overcome with the 5000k bulbs

I had bought 4 other led bulbs for use in a ceiling fan w/4 fixture chandelier, only to be disappointed on how well they lit up the room and the strange hue they created off the color of the walls. I was a lil hesitant about buying these bulbs, but am very glad I did! they lit up the room very nicely and with only a lil bit of color difference in the room from natural sun light to night time lighting( you can still tell what the colors in the room should look like )!! I plan on buying more of these bulbs for use in other fixtures in the house!
Oh! Buy the way, I've had these bulbs 6 months and they haven't changed in brightness or color as of yet and I don't notice any flickering or hesitation in there performance and they average about 4hrs of use every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Craig50 Great item.
Started using these bulbs instead of CFL. I like them much better. Instant start and they seem brighter. I hope the electricity used is as good as advertised.

We are using these lights to replace higher wattage bulbs in our parking lot lights. They are much brighter than the incandescent lights we were using and at only 5 watts apiece a great savings. We love 1000bulbs!!
