This is the perfect indoor LED flood light bulb. Absolutely perfect. It is a significant upgrade to their previous generation bulb (which was very good). Here's why:

1. For 13 watts you get 730 lumens of light which puts it right at 65 Watt equivalence for most indoor floods. The previous generation of this bulb was just a tiny bit dimmer, more of a 60 Watt equiv.

2. It gives off light at 2700K, which is exactly equivalent to a typical incandescent. The previous generation of this bulb was at 3000K giving it a much cooler appearance. Close to incandescent, yes, but not close enough. If you need or prefer a warm look, or you want an EXACT replacement for your incandescent, this is the one to get. I have some of these in the kitchen along with incandescent bulbs and the light color is exactly the same. Perfect.

3. It has a terrific diffuser. No hot spots under the bulb, and no hot spots visible through the diffuser, either. Just even, warm white light.

4. It turns on in about 1/4 of a second. That's close enough to "instant on" in my book.

Note that the bulb is a little bit shorter than a typical incandescent, 65 Watt flood. If you are using cans for your lights, the bulb will recess into the fixture just a little bit more.

I purchased one of these elsewhere when they initially came out. Currently it's 7/25/12 and last I checked at Home Depot there was not an Energy Star label on this, thus, no rebate available from my local utility. This light however is great. Replaced one 65W incandescent bulb to test it out.

1.It is just as bright as the 65W, actually a bit brighter.

2.I cannot tell a difference in color temperature from the incandescent lamps (2700K).

3.Nice wide beam with the light evenly spread, my other incandescent lamps are brightest directly under the bulb and taper off quickly as you move out. (Replaced one bulb out of 4 in the kitchen and do notice the difference, looks brighter).

4.This lamp is lighter than other similar type incandescent replacements. (Lighter, redesigned heat sink).

5.Doesn't glare, I sit with a computer and magazine under it with no issues.

Other notes;

None of my can lights have the bulb (incandescent) sitting in them at a uniform depth. And since this lamp is a tiny bit longer, throws light almost straight out and has the metal ring around it(for cooling), there is a slight shadow around the recessed can trim that I'm testing it in. Is it a big deal? Not for me, but some people may not like it for that, this depends on what you have for can light fixture as well.

Also, this is an LED lamp, but they still get hot, don't touch.

Overall, I would recommend.

I have one of these bulbs installed next to three standard 65W BR30 incandescent floods so I am able to compare them directly.

My observations:

The color is close, but definitely not a perfect match. The incandescent bulbs appear slightly more green/yellow.

This bulb sends much more light at wide angles, up to nearly 180 degrees. That means it lights up more of the room than the incandescents which send more of their light downward. (That's because this bulb has a diffuser whereas the incandescents do not.)

This bulb appears brighter than the 65W incandescent it replaced. This is probably due to the light going at wider angles which lights up the walls more than incandescents do. This effect is probably most noticable when your fixture is mounted very near to a wall or walls like mine is.

If more light is reflected off your walls it could change the apparent color of the bulb, especially if your walls aren't white.

Overall, great bulb. No complaints, except about the gold-plated price for which I removed a single star. Hopefully these will come down into the $20 range eventually.

I like the fact that it lights up more of the room since it means we need to turn on other lights less often.

I think the only reason someone wouldn't like it is if they are expecting a direct nobody-can-tell-the-difference replacement for an incandescent bulb.

What a difference a year makes. I'd gone to Home Depot a year or so ago and tried out several different LED floodlights just to see how they looked compared to the existing halogen bulbs I was using. The previous LED "floodlights" were anything but. Massive hotspots, no diffuse light, and took well over a second to turn on. They went back immediately and I returned to using my regular 65W Halogena lights. Recently another one of the Halogena bulbs blew, and Home Depot is no longer carrying them - only the "Super Saver" versions, which are OK but more expensive than the old non-Super Saver versions. I decided to take a leap of faith based on the reviews here and I am so pleased that I did!

The quality of the light coming from this Philips bulb is amazing. It's a very close match in color and strength to the bright white 65W Halogena light in the nearest recessed fixture. While it does take about 250ms to turn on, the light floods much more evenly than the Halogena ever did. My wife honestly couldn't tell which bulb was the LED.

Use these in your recessed fixtures. Absolutely, without any question, LED technology has finally reached the mainstream and equaled or excelled the old halogen lights I had been using! I will definitely be buying more of these to replace the halogens as they blow out.
