Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) I selected these with the intention to use them -- as they are marketed -- in a chandelier. The glass is clear and the light is warm and bright -- an excellent replacement for the warm feel of incandescent bulbs.

The bad news is that -- unlike the photos shown on Amazon and from the manufacturer (including on the box) every single bulb has printed specifications on the white part of the bulb. IT LOOKS HORRIBLE. The text goes ALL THE WAY AROUND the entire white base so there is no way to hide it. It is a shame because the light, lens, and glass look great. I think I may be able to use these in a ceiling fan which hides the (white part of the) base in a glass enclosure, but if you have a chandelier or other light fixture where you can see the white base DO NOT buy these and expect them to look like the photo because there are THREE lines OF BLACK/GRAY PRINT ALL THE WAY AROUND THE BULB!
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) When LED bulbs started coming out, I eagerly awaited the day they'd make candelabra base LED bulbs so I could get some for my ceiling fans. With incandescent bulbs, I couldn't run the light and the fan at the same time without shortening the bulb's life. With fluorescent, the bulbs looked bulky and took time to get fully bright. These 200 lumen LED bulbs replaced some 430 lumen fluorescent bulbs. Because the fluorescent bulbs have a frosted plastic cover, the practical light output seems about the same to me. The LEDs also immediately come on at full power, which is nice.

The LED light is located in the base of the bulb pointing toward a reflector of sorts inside the clear glass bulb. This reflector scatters the light in all directions so the light appears natural rather than focused in any one direction. The bulbs fill the room with "soft white" light. I like the long-life span (22.8 years if used an average of 3 hours each day with an estimated yearly energy cost... Read more
The Good:
1) These are bright and efficient.
2) They dimmed as advertised.
3) With the printing removed, they look pretty good.

The Bad:
1) There is grey writing printed all around the white base. If you're using these in a chandelier, you're going to want to remove it as it looks tacky. I took it off with 320 grit sand paper. It takes less than 2 minutes a bulb, so about 10 minutes for my chandelier. It feels dumb to have to do this for new bulbs, but they're going to last over 10 years so it's worth the time.
2) They throw light upward. The lens disproportionately lights upward, illuminating your ceiling more than your walls.
3) They don't change color when dimmed. Until I installed these, I didn't realize how much incandescent bulbs change color when dimmed. The light turns much warmer, more yellow and then more orange. It's part of what makes candle light or the dimmed lights at a romantic restaurant so flattering. I installed these... Read more
