Another important (I think) thing to add, these are made in the USA. Help us out of the recession.

i'd also like to add that cree bulbs from Home Depot work well with X-10. they dim and turn off and on without any problems. Yeah i know, old stuff but i just can't part with it.

These cast a ring of light outward on a horizontal plane plus or minus I'd say about 40 degrees. No light comes out the tip, which is pretty typical for non-flood LED bulbs. It is glass, however it's coated in a rubbery material so if they break they're contained as well as disperse the light more evenly.

They unfortunately flicker ever so slightly. Home Depot also sells some LED bulbs made by Lighting Science Group under their Ecosmart line that do NOT flicker. It's not a terrible flicker, but if you're sensitive to that sort of thing then be warned.

@drgandalf: The discount all depends on the store (location) where you buy them. It's due to an instant rebate offered by the utility company...can be up to $5. I don't think you can get the discount online though the web site should show your chosen store's price.

@paulcarlucci: I have several and have never noticed any flicker at all. It might be my lack of sensitivity to that sort of thing but it's also never been mentioned by others.

@fat50strat: They are assembled in the US. Not every part is American made.

@paulcarlucci - thanks for the tip. Makes them a pass for me.

Anybody who shops at Costco should check out the Feit Electric 60 Watt replacement bulbs 13.5 Watt, 850 lumens so nice and bright. Dimmable. No flicker. Work great in outside fixtures. Used them last winter in temps down to 0 F and they really are instant on (about a 0.1 seconds) Different rebates from local power companies but I picked up a bunch between $6 and $8.

@fat50strat: The requirements to claim "made in the USA" are very broad. LED manufacturers that claim to have their products made in the USA simply import the product nearly assembled from China, then do one final assembly step in the USA so they can claim it was made here. It really wasn't though.

@cosmicpea: Those FEIT bulbs are a great buy. I own an LED supply company and use them quite often.

I have a 60W equivalent Warm White in my porch light and I love it.

Light quality is still not quite as good as Incandescent/Halogen but light years better than CFLs.

@ooter37: CREE has a very large LED manufacturing facililty (The light emiting diodes themselves) in North Carolina that I have visited. I do not know that these bulbs contain diodes from that specific site, and they do have facilities in China also. But, CREE is highly unlikely to be assembling diodes sourced from random suppliers and they do have a large USA LED manufacturing base.

@cosmicpea: Are these LEDs? I was at a costco recently and they only had CFLs....

So it seems that FPL does not offer a discount. Surprise, surprise. I wish I still lived in MA.

Why do I never see deals on LED bulbs that are actually bright enough to be useful? Where are the sales on 60W or 100W equivalents? I don't think I have a single lamp in my house with a bulb that isn't at least ~traditional 60W, save for my desk lamp.

And with all the different kinds of bulbs on the market now, can we just switch to lumens, please, so we don't have to worry about all this equivalence stuff? I just want to be able to buy a bulb that is roughly the same brightness as the one it's replacing.

@robio: How many bulbs do you need?

vote-for1vote-against

@robio: These all have the lumens listed on the package. The ones I posted are 450, they also have 60 watt equivalent 9.5 watt 800 lumens for 9.97.

I bought a bunch of these today, they are in fact 2700k color. Uniformity in the throw of the light isn't everything I would like. Like many have said, the tip of the bulb shows the ring if you look at it directly. Fortunately many of my ceiling fixtures mount the lights horizontally so it didn't matter, but for my track lighting, or any vertically mounted light in which you would see the tip of the light, I'd recommend the Lowe's brand Utilitech 40 watt equivalent. They're 8.97 each, but the light looks great.

I am just a regular guy. I classify cheese either stinky or not stinky, I don’t care mayonnaise or miracle whip, and I always drive my wife’s hand me down car because it gets from A to B. I live near Houston where it is friggin hot all the time. I thought back to when I was a kid and took apart an easy bake oven. It cooks with a light bulb. So I got people here complaining about their room is hot, or the kids won’t turn off their lights, or the A/C runs all day and night. I replaced all the places that the lights get left on or are hot with these it helped with the temp and the complaining. The more 60W replacements look just like regular 60W to me, in fact they are a little brighter. We have two lamps on each side of the TV I left one incandescent and replaced one with a Cree. No one could tell the difference.

I've been replacing my bulbs in the house with LED's and so far this brand and type have worked the best. I had an issue with a dimmer unit using another brand that claimed it was dimmable. At the lowest setting these bulbs will turn all the way off. The other brand I tried would go down to a very dim nightlight level but not 100% off. The light output is very similar to incandescent. Also, the outer bulb is coated in a rubberized (nice and grippy) material. Other's I've used are smooth plastic, not a big deal but a nice touch. Easier to work with. You'd be less likely to have one slip out of your hands when installing it in a ceiling fixture. The glass globe also seems to be larger than some others in the same price range.

I just got 4 in from the link I sent and I'm very pleased with them, I have them in our ceiling fan in one bedroom and the only difference is the ceiling doesn't get much light but I don't stare at the ceiling so I'm fine with that. They would work great on horizontal type fixtures like in the bathroom.
