Rated 5 out of 5 by LedSpecialist Great product!
I purchased four of these bulbs to incorporate into my ceiling fan fixture in my living room and I was very impressed by their quality of light. The bulb provided consistent, even lighting through the entire room, with no bright spot-lighting effects. This bulb gives off soft white light and makes my living room look very inviting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DanMan Some issues, but not bad
- Initially we had 2 bad bulbs out of 9, which were exchanged with no issue.
- The brightness does appear similar to 40W incandescent bulbs.
- The color seems a bit whiter than 3000k - probably more like 3200k-3500k
- They emit a soft humming sound, some bulbs louder than others.
- They look like a traditional soft white incandescent
- They do emit light in all directions. The downward light is not quite as bright as a traditional incandescent, but reasonably close.
While there are some minor issues, overall it is a good bulb. For the price, it would be nice if they were dimmable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robertm365 I love the idea
Not as bright as I would like but that is to be expected for a 40w.

Rated 4 out of 5 by capnhairdo Truly omnidirectional
After trying more than a half dozen kinds of LED bulbs now—LG, Toshiba, Philips, EarthLED—these are the first truly omnidirectional ones. No bright line around the middle, as with the Toshiba ones...just soft, even light around the whole bulb. Finally, I have found the perfect LED bulb for our bathroom vanity fixture. If only they were 2700° and dimmable, I would be putting these in every fixture in the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMKJ Great LED
Our Home is about 99% LED, from when we built it in 2006.
Cree 2700˚K Down Cans, Permlight (who is now gone), Phillips, Toshiba, etc....we have tried them all, checked their color temperature, and we buy all our LED from 1000 bulbs.
Prices keep coming down which is awesome..Service is great...
These 360 bulbs are really nice in lamps...their a slightly colder color temp at 3000˚K than 2700˚K, but really nice and energy efficient.
We don't use any dimmers any more, just size the light to the use need, is the best way to go.
Let's get the USA converted to LED, just think of the LOAD it will take off of our Aging Grid....Just think of the Savings to every household and business....and that Energy Savings = $$$, $$$ that can be spent to get this Economy Going and Creating more Jobs, Green Jobs....Solar, Wind, Low Energy Use Electric Everything!! Natural Gas, and Clean Coal...

Rated 5 out of 5 by oslow 6 Watt - LED Light Bulb - Omni-Directional - A19 - 3000K Warm White - 390 Lumens - 40 Watt Equal - 120 Volt - Energy Miser 360-6W-WW
These LED bulbs work really well. The light may be a tad on the blue side but not noticeable unless you compare side by side. My wife didn't like some of the earlier LED bulbs but I replaced a couple 60 watt incandescent bulbs in the kitchen with these and she hasn't noticed the difference yet. Pricey but worth trying. They use 6 watts and don't get hot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marv If it lasts up to its hype, I'll upgrade to all excellent!!
No warm-up as in florescents. Instant brightness.Good light tone. My only question is whether it will last long enough to live up to its advertising.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HughM3 Normal-shape; instant-on; as-advertised "equal to incandescent X watt"
I really like these bulbs. They're the first LED, normal-shaped, instant-on bulbs that I've found that actually match the luminescence you'd expect from their "equal to" advertisement (in this case, 40W Warm). We're in the process of swapping out all the bulbs in our house to LED (slowly; budgetary decision) for three reasons: save money over time; I hate florescent (mercury, slow, large, ugly); I hate having to replace bulbs all the time =). I'll be ordering more, and obviously recommend them to other folks looking for good LED bulbs.
