Rated 5 out of 5 by LedSpecialist Indistinguishable from a Stark White incandescent
This looks like a very stark white incandescent bulb. The 360 degree lighting emitted by the bulb matches a traditional incandescent and works well as a shaded or unshaded lamp. At 550 lumens, there is no appreciable loss in brightness when compared to a traditional 40-watt lamp. The 5500K color is useful for offices or places where concentration is the most important.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pennypincher1 I'll raise a fuss if the product does not meet my expectation. I expect it to do its job for 20 years.
Low initial price was NOT one of the bulbs' selling points, but the expectation of long life while sipping power WAS. Time will tell whether the unseen selling points are met or not.
I used 5 of these to illuminate the eating area of my kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MedicGreenCat Birght white not for me.
This bulb is wonderful, however the light is bright white and I had to exchange for the warm light, the warm light is a 5 star for me! I can see this light for more of an industrial lighting or hospital not residential.
