I LOVE THESE BULBS!
I suffer Migraines and Cluster Headaches. As a result, I am particularly sensitive to quality of light and the flickering of the Compact Flourescent bulbs. Halogen bulbs, though a great quality of light (for some brands), are expensive and give off much heat. They also can behave oddly when on dimmers since they are not actually designed for that.
These are the true Daylight (bluer hues of light as opposed to yellows/ oranges of Soft White ranges). If you are used to soft white this will take some acclimation but it is so worth it. They do make a Soft White version of these that does duplicate the Soft White of incandescent very well. I did test those too when I was trying multiple bulbs, varied light hughs and brands. These dim well and don't have the visible step down that some other brands do. You will notice that you don't see the actual LEDs with these as the filter on the bulb itself difuses the light well.
This is the first LED bulb that I love. Here is why: The 2700K color is very calm and works well in a living room. There is no green tint. The bulb dims really well without flickering (only tested mechanical dimmer so far) and the color change down to 2200K makes it behave like an old traditional bulb. The bulb emits light in all directions including down which makes it useful in standard lamps. This should be compared against many LEDs that concentrate the light up and out but not down. The bulb feels strong and solid and it is very smooth screwing into the lamp fixture, even old fixtures. And the fact that it only draws 6W and doesn't get hot makes me enjoy my kit lamps more. Perfect!
No buzzing noise from dimmer switches, and that's why I got them. They are also really bright for 40W equivalent. Perhaps almost as bright as the Cree 60W. So, cheaper LED bulbs are fine in places that don't matter as much, but when it's a dimmer switch, I'd go with this.
Note: I have read from reviews that not all Phillips bulbs are quiet in dimmers, so make sure to get this one or research others that are.
