Rated 5 out of 5 by miguel Love this product as it's as bright as a 75W incadescent and hightech looking
Received the bulbs on quick order, well packaged and nicely designed plastic shell that not require a tool to unpack. Very user friendly packaging.
The heavy weight surprised me. It's a lot of glass and nicely styled plastic molding/casting that embeds to LEDs.
The light output appears equivalent to the 75W bulb I replaced. It makes me feel good to have something high tech, good looking, functional and state of the art.
Thanks for providing this product on your site.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dandan festive on/off behavior
The bulb has a slight delay in turning on, around 1/2 sec, which is noticeable but not a big deal to me. Turning off is pretty wild though -- it fades out with a phosphorescent decay effect, which looks pretty cool behind the lampshade. Anyway, minutae, but a festive one.
Bulb itself works great. With my 12" diameter lampshade the emission pattern looks perfectly uniform.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TEEDoc depends on where you want to use it
The light emanates unevenly from this bulb. It does not shine in all directions from a wall sconce. It's better in an upright or directional lamp.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark54 Two out of three failed within 5 months
I purchased 3 of these bulbs in October 2013. Within 5 months, 2 of the 3 started blinking intermittently and had to be replaced. Fortunately, 1000Bulbs has great customer service and gave me a full credit without any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by macattaaaack Very bright, lights up instantly, but not a perfect replacement
I'm using two of these bulbs in a floor-standing torchiere lamp, and they work very well. Brightness is more than sufficient, and they light up instantly at full brightness.
My only complaint, a minor one, is that the bulb is constructed with three radial modules, which are separated by three wide metal bands--extensions of the cooling fins at the base. These bands create lines that are visible through the translucent glass of my fixture. This is not a serious problem in this particular instance, but I wouldn't use this bulb in fixtures with a highly visible frosted globe diffuser, such as a bathroom vanity light.

Rated 2 out of 5 by blitz Not as expected
I should have looked at the picture of the bulb a bit closer. When they arrived I was very surprised that the globe part of the bulb was partitioned into three separate pieces with solid plastic in between each section. They do not look anything like a normal light bulb when they are turned on. This would probably be fine if used in a place where you do not see the bulb, but not so good where they are clearly visible. They are also unreliable. One of the four bulbs that I purchased died after one day! Perhaps it was just one defective bulb, but it doesn't give any confidence considering the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GatorGrad93 Very happy with this LED in my home
I bought a few of these SunSun Lighting A19 12 watt bulbs for my home a while back and have just ordered some more. They work great and are exactly what I was looking for. I have been very pleased with their soft white light in my family room, and I especially love the fact that they run so much cooler and use so much less energy than the ones they replaced. I will continue changing over to SunSun's bulbs throughout my house, as I am very pleased with their LED bulbs.
