Rated 5 out of 5 by backroad Great medium/wide spot
This is a great choice for highlighting photos/artwork with closely placed cans when you also want moderate wall-wash effect. Color temp is good match to incandescent. Works perfectly with Lutron Maestro C-L dimmers which can be a bit finicky with LEDs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jrherb Great replacement for my canned lights
For the past year or so I've been experimenting with different short neck par30 LEDs to replace my halogen bulbs in my home. I was thrilled to find this one! The color temp & look is a perfect match in my home. My only complaint is when they are dimmed, they don't dim down as much as the halogens we have-- I only opted to not change some hallway lights that we keep on for the kids while they fall asleep. The color temp of these is perfectly warm-- when I started replacing them room by room, no one even noticed until I pointed them out. If I listen closely enough when they're on at full power, I can hear a slight hum, but for me it's not that noticeable & I need to be specifically listening for it to hear it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ricardo Excellent quality, beautiful industrial design, but will buzz on dimmers
These Philips LED warm white bulbs are an exact match for the halogen PAR30S bulbs that I used in my home in terms of Lumens and color. They have a very nice industrial design that matched the white trimmed cans in my home. Be warned however, that even using the Philips recommended Lutron Diva dimmer for LEDs they buzz (I have them on dimmers in groups of 4 and 6). I have removed them from the areas of my home where I use a dimmer. Also, they do not dim as low as the halogen bulbs. If you are on regular switches these are recommended.
