5.0 out of 5 stars Lower Dimming ability than advertised!, December 20, 2011
By 
This review is from: CREE CR6 6" LED Edison Base 35000 Life Hours 2700K 10.5 Watts
I bought about 6 of these bulbs and was spectacularly impressed by their performance. First off, I want to get out of the way that these bulbs not only dim to 5% but actually to 1% if you get the right dimmer! If you go to Lutron's website, this is confirmed via their testing with various dimmers on their LED product selection tool. You can dim these bulbs so low, that it really does rival Incandescent bulbs without the ugly very dark red glow you'd get at the very lowest dimming levels. I'd say the best part about these bulbs is that they have fantastic CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 90-92 which makes them look a bit better than the dimming CFLs I've been using as of late. They produce sufficient light to make them a good replacement for the R30 bulbs I've been using and when compared side by side with an incandescent, their light quality and output are visually identical (from the limited testing I've done).

great bulb, I have no idea about their tested lifetime but I just had to write that this bulb has excellent light output and color quality while dims the best by far and it closely matches incandescent bulbs in dimming ability if you use the right dimmer.
