Very distinctive modern design, looks cool. Nice light color, not very bright, similar to an incandescent 40W as advertised. Price is a bit staggering for a light bulb but if the longevity is as promised it might be worth it. I'll update in 22.8 years.

After spending some time looking at the new LED bulbs, I bought one of these (the last one in stock) to replace a 40 W bulb in the bedside table lamp in our bedroom. The light is quite warm, with similar yellowish cast of the incandescent bulb. The bulb is heavy with a solid build. The light projected from the new bulb has an even pattern, similar to the standard bulb. This is a nice feature as many of the other new LED bulbs have a much narrower dispersion pattern. In my view, a wide dispersion is much better for the typical table lamp.

Altogether, it's a one for one replacement for the standard bulb, albeit at a much higher price. On the other hand, it will pay for itself in 6 months as it burns about 20% of the electric power of the bulb it is replacing. The bedside lights are on a lot - more or less all day so we don't come home to a dark home. The estimated power used is about $0.96 per year versus over $80 for the standard bulb. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I decided to order LEDs for the first time having done some research online, and this was one of the bulbs I purchased. For comparison's sake, I ordered A19 bulbs from 3 different manufacturers:

LED Dimmable Light Bulb, 830 Lumen Omni-Directional, A19, Warm White, Lifetime Guarantee by G7 Power
+ The color of the light was ok, not perfect. It's warm but definitely on the whiter side (3000K).
- Emitted a buzzing noise wherever I installed it.
- I think it may have blown out the socket on one of my lamps. Good thing I didn't like that lamp.
- The bulb was heavyweight and large. It actually dragged down an arm of a multi-arm lamp I own.
- This and the LED Dimmable Light Bulb, 900 Lumen, BR30 or PAR30 Replacement, Warm White, Lifetime Guarantee by G7 Power have a 3-second cooldown after you turn off the light. Seems to be a theme with this company's products.
Overall:
Disappointed in this product. I wanted to like this company since it felt like a local, grassroots company trying to get a footing in the market, but unfortunately their products seem inferior to Philips.

Philips 417048 Dimmable AmbientLED 8-Watt A19 Light Bulb
+ The color of the light was a perfect warm white that matched my existing incandescents and CFLs perfectly (2700K).
+ The bulb itself was lightweight and compact in size.
+ It turned on and off instantly with no warm up or cool down.

The first time I looked at this bulb it was $15, and then jumped $5 a day later, when I bought it. Now, it's up $2 more. I was a first adopter of CFLs, when they were $24, and huge and heavy. I guess I should be proud of myself that I restrained myself and didn't spend $60 on one these LED bulbs as they were that much a few years ago.

From the main picture, it looks like it is shielded on one side. It isn't. It's divided into 3 sections, and is an interesting looking bulb -- nice looking. On the same day I got this, I bought a Utilitech 40 watt warm white LED from Lowes for $10, and it is also a good bulb, and seems to run a tad cooler in color. Actually, the glass on the Philips is much hotter and the Utilitech bulb glass is cool with a heat sink at the base, so the heat is just below the bulb. Because of the price difference, if I had to do it over, I'd get two of the Lowes bulbs. But, if your lamp has a white shade, or not much of a shade, the Philips might be a better choice, for the slightly warmer color. Also, in a table lamp (where bulb is facing up), this Philips throws more light down, whereas the $10 Utilitech throws most of the light up, because of the shape.

I read one review that said this bulb has a delay when turning it on. Mine doesn't. I bought these two LED bulbs because I thought for my main lights, they might provide a better light quality, aside from brightness, than my CFLs, and I believe they do. Both of my LED bulbs are less watts and brighter than the CFLs that were supposed to be 40 watts also. A few months later and I'm updating this now. I love both the bulbs.

Manufacturers seem bent on producing bulbs that replicate the standard incandescent color now, but I think more effort should be made to produce optimal light for eye health and I'm sure that will be done shortly. For that reason, and the high price still, I'm not going to go all LED yet.
