Rated 5 out of 5 by Canton Very bright, nice quality light, just a little cool.
We replaced a number of incandescent 60W lights in our ceiling "cans" with these LED lights. Angle/flooding was *excellent*, no difference at all with our incandescents. Also total light output exceeded what we were used to. However even at 2700K this light was a fair bit cooler than what we were used to. Since our walls are a warmish color, these still work fine, but if you've got bright white walls these might not be right for you.
Great build quality, nice and heavy, they feel like they can dissipate a lot of heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt1122 Very close to incandescent look.
Good lighting. Very close to incandescent look. Lights come on quickly. Am having trouble finding a compatible dimmer switch. Still looking for a switch. Even though, I would be these lights again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dddrew good light
These lights are bright, have a good (dim-ability) range, and i do not notice any illumination delay when turned on. work well in my recessed application.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SteveO Bright, but distinct pink hue
I bought three of these to replace traditional bulbs in a recessed can. Overall, the light output is very good, but there are two very big drawbacks to these bulbs...big enough that I will be replacing these bulbs with a different brand. 1.) They do not dim well at all - I have tried another brand of LED BR30 bulb that dims just fine with the switch I have installed (Leviton toggle dimmer compatible with LEDs), but these flicker far too much, and don't dim down as far as the other brand of LED. 2.) They emit a very distinct pink hue that I've found to be irritating to my eye. My wife doesn't notice, but I do, and that is no bueno since these bulbs serve as the main source of light in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LED4me Excellent replacement for R30 incandescents or CFLs
Plenty of dimmable soft white light. Replaced three 75 watt incandescents (225 watts total) with three of these 12 watt Kobis (36 watts total). Any temperature greater than 2700K would be to cool! Great energy saving product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mitch5 5" can light energy saver replacement bulb, dimmable
I have replaced 18 of my 5" can regular bulbs with these R30 LED bulbs. Energy consumption is gone, color is great warm white and not blueish white, and dimming is flutter free with the proper CFL/LED dimmer switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sfarrell1007 Works and looks great
I ordered this as a replacement for a pot light spot light in my kitchen ceiling. I eventually want to replace all of them with the LED lights, but I was unsure if this would fit, and how it would look, so I ordered just one. When it is off, as well as when it is on, you cannot really tell which light is the LED light. Maybe the LED light is a hair brighter...
There is about a 1 or 2 second delay when I flip the on/off switch for this particular bulb to go on, but that isn't a problem for me. And when I get them all replaced, they will all turn on at the same time, so the delay will be unnoticiable.
The price was great, and the shipping was fast. I will be ordering more of these (6 for my kitchen, then we'll start on the basement), very soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by illuminatedDoug Good bulb, a bit white, delay to illuminate from power-on
The bulb is very nice, plenty bright. It appears to be a bit whiter than a compact fluorescence that I have of the same color temperature, but not so much to be noticable to most people.
Additionall, after flipping the switch, it does take 0.5 seconds to begin to emit light. This is something you can get used to.
Application was a cathedral ceiling so I don't have to climb a ladder for another 20 years, hopefully.
