I was worried that the bulbs might crack or shatter during shipping, but I'm happy to say that they arrived intact and functioning as advertised. I had issues with a similar purchase where some of the bulbs came DOA. So I decided to purchase a new set and replace the entire living room and dinning area to a brand new set. All 24 bulbs work well and provides a nice bright white tone (at 5000k). The bulbs do not get as hot as my other conventional bulbs and seem to provide much more light in my rooms. I searched for a good set and a reasonable price and these were one of the three I was comparing. Overall, the bulbs are well constructed, bright, and importantly does not have issues flickering. Though rare, LED bulbs I purchased in the past flickered from time to time but these do not. I will continue to monitor the longevity of these and hopefully get the amount of usage out of them as the company advertises. Great purchase and happy to purchase again for other projects.
