  • Size of the bulb is slightly taller than a standard incandescent bulb. But it is nice and bright. No buzz. Clean and bright. Turns on immediately. Satisfied. Only negative is, it doesn't quite seem 300 degree of light shining. But it's not like I officially measured it. Inside the open frosted glass, there's a distinct sharp line where there's light and shadow, unlike an incandescent bulb where the whole frosted glass is lit up. Very good. Only a couple weeks, and still working. Hope it lasts 5 years minimum, 15 years would be great.
  • I really like the color of these bulbs (3000K) compared to typical 2700K bulbs found in stores. It is just a tad cooler, but still overall warm. The bulbs seem a bit brighter than 2700K bulbs I have with same lumens, but that may just be the difference in color making it appear that way. I've only had for about 6 months, so cant speak to longevity, but I've bought a couple 6-packs and no issues yet. Wish they were cheaper, but you're not likely to find this color in stores, so... oh well!
  • I bought 12 of the Hyperikon 3000k 9W bulbs last year, and while the new model is brighter, it has decreased it's ability to dim well at lower levels. There is an inherent flickering that occurs when you dim these low which does not occur to the old bulbs. So, perhaps they moved the operating range, but it's new range isn't as good of a compromise for us. So, now I've reduced the fine tuning on my Lutron dimmer to accommodate these bulbs, only because one never knows how another brand might perform, and it could certainly be worse.
  • Ordered the 3000k for general living, dining, kitchen areas as I didn't care for how yellow the 2700k color can be. It's the right color for places you want to still feel "warm" and "at home", but not so white as the 4000k, which is probably better for an office and especially 5000k, which is about like Yankee Stadium.* These 9 watt bulbs were probably just right, although I think with a somewhat less yellowish color of the 3000k you get a bit more visibility as well. So going forward I would like to test out a 6 or 7 watt version, once 3000k becomes more popular (hoping it will). These were the best reviewed, cheapest (get the 18-pk) bulbs of this type and color that I have yet to find.*Speaking of 5000k, our house had 23 watt CFL bulbs (1600 lumen) with the 5000k color when we first bought it... a friend literally walked in, shielded his eyes and said it was equal to the lights at Yankee Stadium. Also, don't get a high wattage bulb for living areas as it's not necessary. At that point, our house at night with the curtains pulled back looked like the big battman signal light beaming out if it.
  • Hyperikon makes superior LED lighting for the home and we are now outfitting our entire home with their products. We've been struggling with our bathroom over vanity lighting and it's either too bright, too yellow or too daylight blue. This 3000k 60w equiv fit the bill perfectly! The fixture can take up to 4 x 100w incandescent bulbs but we have always opted for 4 x 75w. We purchased the Hyperikon 75w equiv LED and they were actually too bright, go figure. We just tried the 60w equiv LED in a 3000k and they are so much brighter than a 75w incandescent bulb with a super clean CRI of 84
  • Perfect lighting for my bathroom. I installed new light fixtures in my bathrooms and then purchased lightbulbs that were labeled “Daylight”. I put them in and the lighting was absolutely horrible. It was very cold and stark, like I was in a warehouse. So, then I bought lightbulbs labeled “Warm”. They created and orange overtone to the skin. Flash forward… I saw a display that had three types of lightbulbs. The one in the middle was labeled 3000 K. I put my hand in the display to observe how the lights affected skin tone and the 3000 K light cast a nice realistic light on my skin. I’m so happy I found these lightbulbs. If you want a light that is bright but not harsh then this is the light bulb for you. The bulbs don’t have a logo in the center of the them either, making them the perfect bulb for a downward facing light fixture.
  • These items were delivered timely and were adequately packaged. While I really haven't had a chance to see if these bulbs last as long as advertised, etc., I did check each bulb to see that they were all in good condition. They were all perfect and all work! Yay! And the light they emit is a lovely soft white, just as stated.I am so pleased to find this type of long-lasting bulb at a reasonable price. We have used LED bulbs in our reading lamps for quite a while. They've been great, but too expensive for us to buy in any quantity.We have very limited income and a home with many lights in high ceilings. We are in our 80s and not too steady on ladders most days. These new bulbs have replaced all our high-flying incandescent ones that seemed to burn out every ten minutes. With reasonable use these LED numbers shouldn't need to be replaced anytime while we are still breathing! If I find this prediction is wrong, I will update this review.
  • Apparently I've made a mistake, these are only 80 CRI I wish the title would have made clear that these are not 90 CRI. Depending on what room you put these in, the light color is different. In my room with wood paneling, the light color is that of a 'cool' Florescent Tube, but almost with a green tint. In the Kitchen the light color is an off-white color with a slight yellow tint.I'm a little frustrated because I thought the 6 pack and the 4 pack were the same bulbs, 4000K 9 Watt. I knew something was wrong because the colors don't pop like they do with the 3000K Bulbs these guys make.
  • I'm a real fan of the LED bulbs. I was an early adopter of CFLs, because I resent paying the electric company so much money (and, really, does anyone want to just shovel more money at their utility company?), and these are even more efficient. The light from these 4000K bulbs is cool white, so it doesn't distort your color perception at all, and the light is really bright. These also use almost 1/3 less power than the CFL bulbs do (9 watts instead of 14 watts), so soon I'll shovel even less money from my checking account into the coffers of the electric company. Plus, since they are rated to last longer, it should be years before I need to buy new bulbs (unless the teen and 20-something sons decide to play ball indoors, in which case all bets are off). Lastly, I like the fact that these come encased in a round white plastic shell, so they look very similar to the original type of bulbs; that makes it easier to put a clip-on shade on a lamp, which is a real bonus!
  • Hyperikon remains my first choice for LED bulbs and these came at a good price. Just be aware that although the description says "soft white glow", these are the 3000K bulbs and therefore the light is a little "whiter" than you might be expecting if you are replacing a standard incandescent bulb which is closer to 2700K. These are fine for locations such as closets, attics, basements, and protected outdoor locations. For the living room I prefer bulbs with the 2700K color. These bulbs are very bright (820 lumens) and you might find that in some cases you would prefer a little less light. The Hyperikon 40W equivalent bulbs are a good alternative for places like stairwells, alcoves, and such where you don't want a bright bulb. These are OK for indoor and outdoor use including damp locations. The packaging doesn't say whether they are suitable for completely enclosed fixtures, but I have installed them that way with no problems so far. Heat is the enemy of LED bulbs, however, and I would recommend using common sense. If the fixture has only a single bulb and it is not in a hot location, it should work OK. If it has multiple bulbs, the lack of ventilation could shorten the lifetime.
  • Excellent 4000k match for our existing lighting. Other brands are lacking in QC for color control, these are perfect. I have a ceiling fixture burning 4x4' LED tubes from Lowes rated at 4000K color temp and the can lights now have matching bulbs. I'm also using one in my motion sensor porch light and it works fine, no flickering as it stays on 'dimmed' all night until motion sets it to high. Best value for performance, color, lumen output and price per bulb.
  • We bought these for our new home back in Fall of 2018. I have had them installed now for a year and have been a bit disappointed. The lights tend to flicker and change light output from real bright to less bright. Not all the time but fairly regularly. I have a lot of recessed lights that came with a different LED bulb installed and they do not do this at all after the exact same time period and use.We also installed these in our garage door openers and while they did not give us interference issues with our remotes (That is a good thing), after one year they are at about 5% brightness and flicker continuously and have been replaced. I suspect they just can't take the vibration of the opener.
