Rated 4 out of 5Â by Timmity Great value. Very bright.
I was expecting these bulbs to be a bit dull but they appear much brighter than the 40W equivalent bulbs they are replacing. I love the way they are full brightness immediately unlike the other energy efficient light bulbs that light up gradually and always seem a bit dull. They are described as "warm white" but I think the light is on the cooler side but that could be in comparison to the very dull lights they are replacing. I consider that a positive. I can't really comment on reliability as they've only been installed a couple of days ago (hence I gave it a neutral 3 starts). They have a 3 year warranty though and the design seems more robust than the old energy efficient bulbs that are fairly delicate. Overall I'd definitely recommend.

This replaces what used to be a 100w bulb. Will be able to use in place of all my former 60w bulbs no problem. Instant on, and bright light. Happy to recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 "40 watt" bulb
Got this to replace CFTs, which in turn replaced old 40 watt bulbs... much better than both!
Gives a clear bright light, with a soft shadow. Unit is compact and fits easily into spaces an old incandescent wouldn't...
As for reliability , I don't know - only had it a day! Lets hope it lasts for the thousands of hours claimed!!
If it stays as bright as it is now and there is no drop-off in performance over the next few days, I will be be replacing all my old CFTs with these - as has been commented elsewhere, they seem a very good brightness for the claimed 37 watt equivalent.
Tip Top Product! :-))

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYDaveB Better than expected!
Very nice LED bulb. Brighter than I expected it to be, brighter than the 11w energy saver it replaced, and in my opinion brighter than the quoted 37w equivalence power. The only downside? Perhaps a slightly cooler colour than envisioned. I missed the part in the spec that mentioned 3000k colour temp, but not too much cooler than the 2700k of a conventional bulb, so I'm happy.
