Good solid LED bulb. Construction is first rate. The only issue I have is my fault. I didn't notice that I'd ordered the "daylight" type. They are really bright white. IMO too bright for use in anything that doesn't have a shade like a ceiling fan with open bulbs. If you need very bright light in an area these will get the job done. Don't get me wrong these are great bulbs but realize that they ARE a very bright white color.
In the picture you can see the Amazon bulb in the middle section of my kitchen light compared to the two "warm white" on the ends.
1.0 out of 5 starsI was initially very happy with these lights

I was initially very happy with these lights. They are nice and bright. But in less than a week they have begun to burn out!!! So disappointed. A lot of money to spend and they only last a few days. I would NOT recommend these.
I replaced the old normal 60w bulbs on the night stand lamps next to our bed with 100W equivalents... They were much brighter but due to the design of the bulbs most of the light seems to be cast upwards with the collar mechanism from the screw in part up to the glass taking up about 1/3 of the bulb, a smaller amount of light from the lamp is broadcast outward for use in reading.....but it sure does make the ceiling look brighter..... guess I can use some of the $3 I will save over the next ten years in electricity paying to pain the ceiling.
This is the fifth pack of these bulbs I've bought in the last couple of years to replace older CFLs and LEDs as they've worn out. They have all been great to this point. However, the latest pack all emit an electrical buzzing sound. Some are fairly quiet but at leas one is so loud it can be heard on the other side of the house! No way I'm keeping a bulb making that kind of sound! Because I've had good experiences with the other packs I've bought, I'm going to exchange these and see if maybe it was just a bad batch. If the next batch does the same thing, I'll be dropping my rating further and finding a different brand to buy!
They work great but the bulbs are much more tall than standard 100w bulbs. Had to bend the frame of my desk lamp to accommodate the size of this bulb. Additionally, the 2/5 of the bulb is the only part that emits light., so the light is directed up more than around.
When I turn on the lights I installed the lightbulbs in they have a hum. It's not loud. I've just never known bulbs to hum like that. Other than that, I like the bulbs. They have a nice warm color that's still quite bright.
Works great so far. However, one of the bulbs is flickering. Waiting to hear back from Amazon on getting a replacement. I have the review at 2 stars because of the defective unit. This does not give me hope for the life of the other bulbs. Hopefully it's just the single bulb.
I do have one floor lamp that will accommodate these bulbs, but the bulbs are too large to fit in my standard size table lamps. More information regarding the size of the bulbs should be on the website.
I went with Amazon Basics expecting good quality. I used Fiet bulbs earlier that I bought from costco and lowes. They only last about a month on about 1 hr of usage a day. so I wanted something which is more trust worthy. So I tried Amazon Basics. I will pay extra buck now and will go with philips. No Amazon Basics again. do/will not recommend. Lasted only about a month.
