I have tried many other LED replacement bulbs that other stores have to offer, but have ended up taking them back because they just weren't bright enough. This one is by far the brightest 60W LED replacement that I have tried, providing a cool white light that's easy on the eyes. Perfect for reading and much better than the yellowish-white provided by most CFL & incandescents out there.
I only ordered a pair of these to try out, but I will be ordering many more in the near future as I can afford them (I just ordered another set right now). Yes, they are expensive, but well worth it if you think about it. Since I replaced many of the CFL bulbs in my house with LED's about a year ago, my electric bill has been cut in half. For those of you that still have incandescent light bulbs installed, the savings will be even more! Most LED's last 65000-100000 hours so you should never have to replace it. In the long run they will pay for themselves 10 fold.
I would recommend installing this type in your lamps, closet lights, garge door opener, porch light, ceiling fans, etc. Pretty much anywhere a standard light bulb would be installed. If you can only afford to do a couple a a time, start with the lights that get the most use.
Note: The light is a bright white similar in color to that of the HID headlights in modern luxury vehicles. If you would prefer the yellowish-white (soft white) model, they are available on overstock.com with similar pricing.

As a LED Bulb buyer who is kinda nuts about these things, I thought I would give these a shot... Very impressed, Lumen output is actually HIGHER than they stated. Excellent quality item. Just placed another order. Thank you Heartland!
